    This discussion made me all nostalgic so I went to look for that pocket knife – the first one I ever owned that my dad bought me. I can’t believe I still have it (and that I could find it!) It’s not anything special as far as a knife is concerned, but man did I feel special when I got it!

    Don’t really carry any knife around, except for my little pocket knife that’s attached to my keys
    But around the shop in the plant, I sometimes wear this th that my wife gave me, she used to work at CAT, have some pretty cool things from them.

    I carry a handmade pocket knife made + or – around 50’s
    My grandpa gave it to me when I was 10 years old.
    Getting old fast lol



    @bbernardesjr87

    I would love to see a picture of that knife as well.
    Those gifts are the best. I really hope you will never loose the knife while working out in the field.

    I carry a Spyderco Paramilitary 2 with a S30V steel blade. Its sharp enough to shave with and built like a rock.

    The S30V steel is a dream to sharpen. And holds an edge well.

    Got a picture of it? That’s so awesome to have something from your childhood with a story to it. I still have the first pocket knife my dad got me. It’s stashed away, and it would hardly cut anything anymore, but I love getting it out every once in a while just to remember what it felt like to be entrusted with a tool like that. One of those moments, for sure.

    That is really neat. That knife looks like it’s had a good long life, but still has more to give.

    The handle is made of horn and brass If I’m not mistaken.
    I do remember my grandpa telling me when he got it, it was shining bright!
    Indeed I spent a good time with my grandpa before he passed away back 2001, I took a moment to remember my grandpa and his stories…after that I decided to put it in a safe place, then I can grab and show my kids(in future) and tell me the stories my grandpa used to tell me. So, I’m not using it anymore…going to use a normal box cutter.

    Really good to have that knife to go along with the stories. It would make them even more real.

    I too have my grandfather’s jack knife. He too has passed away many years ago. I do remember many stories he told me. I only remember one story he told me about him using his jack knife. He was a farmer and they were putting hay in the hay mow of the barn. There was a small elm sapling at the edge of the bridge of the barn. My grandpa took out his knife trimmed up the sapling. There was a man there helping him. He told my grandpa that tree will make you some nice shade one day during haying season. I think my grandpa told this story every year during haying season. Yes the Elm tree still stands at the edge of the bridge of the barn.

    Picked up this Leatherman at a garage sale this weekend. A bit scuffed up, but for two bucks, I thought I’d give ita whirl.

    When the bags are off, it’s a Kizer Vigor for me. That little knife works.

    The last few years I have been fighting with razor knives with the push button replacement.
    I cut a lot of old caulk lines and old sheet rock remodeling.

    The push buttons always wear out and the blade will, unexpectedly, pull out of the knife. HATE that.

    I finally found a Lenox knife that I can live with in the bags. It’s pretty big around, but that helps with the arthritis.

    I'm the only person I ever hit in the head with a hammer.

    I use to carry a gerber, then switched to a bench made then switched to a multi tool and in the shop I usually have one of these japanese style marking knives on me and @montreal_woodworks still haven’t had time to work on yours.
