    I always have a Swiss Army knife (Victorinox, Spartan model). An ex got it for me while on vacation in Switzerland.

    I have it on me all the time. It's opened wine and beer bottles, freed 4x8 signs from their constraints, buttered sandwiches, stripped a wire, opened boxes, etc, etc, etc.

    I don't go half a day without using some implement on it.

    On the topic of knives, what is your preferred method of sharpening?

    I like to use my sharpening system that has the clamp, stones and bars to grind the edge to a specific angle. Then I will dress against a steel to straighten out the wire edge, then pull the edge through my bamboo cutting board lightly to remove that wire edge. Doing it this way, I can get my knives sharp enough to pass the paper test and they hold that edge for a long time.

    Some days, I feel like removing the SIM from my phone, breaking it in pieces, tossing the phone in a wood chipper, grabbing my bug-out bag, leave everyone without saying a word, and just going ghost for the rest of my life.

    I just whale away at it on a diamond stone until it gets sharp, or I get tired....

    I used to use Washita and hard Arkansas stones, but once I tried the diamond stones, I haven't looked back.

    I DO have a small HARD Arkansas stone that is black, that will polish an edge better than ceramic. I sometimes use that as a finish, but mostly I just use a fairly fine diamond stone and call it good.

    I went to Bass Pro today for only the 2nd time in my life (first time was last week) and I made sure to check out these Buck knives you guys and gals have been raving about... nice knives, but I don't see how they could be carried without getting noticed.

    Also, I bought a rifle case, an A2 sight adjustment tool, a handgun sleeve/case and a tripod folding seat. I also noticed that they didn't have any AR15s on display.. not one. But they had a whole wall full of hunting-style rifles and shotguns. I guess its a california thing..

    Yeah...WALMART in Missouri carries At-15's hahah....I like BUCK because of a few reasons...

    a. Will hold an edge<---pain to sharpen but will hold it
    b. Quality
    c. I had a lock blade once that got loose because I was chopping wood with it......sent it back to buck and they fixed, cleaned and sent back with a new case.....

    Thanks for the info on Bucks. Man I really hate california gun laws. The walmarts here don't even sell real guns anymore, just ammo. And when I was at bass pro yesterday I saw 10 round Magpul P-Mags and they look like little baby p-mags. So sad.
