Picked up the Victorinox swiss sprit last night, as new condition with all the extras, under £55 posted. Quite pleased as I really wanted to try this and the ratchet

Basically it just fits most of my requirements and from what I've learned / been told from members and others it's a good choice and Yes the price does help me justify buying another piece of equipment.
cheers

Ive been putting it off for 20 years, so I thought why not, it feels great in the hand, ive had cheapo multitools that broke or werent rugged/large enough

Set the poles to 120cm, seems an ideal height in summer.

I have been after one for years after using them nigh on every day for five years, to have been impressed with them then and what conditions they continue to perform in, to know they're good enough for me now ;

Why the circles? I know they are great for bite retention but don't you get more miss-bites? Genuine question as I've never tried them.
I love em. I keep going back to standard J type hooks, thinking I'm missing something but I always fo back to circles (atleast for sea fishing with bait). I have way better hook up rate. They need the point to be showing we'll though, the bait needs to be lightly nicked, which means they don't work so we'll when cast hard.

Hardly any chance of gut hooking/deep hooking fish which is great especially considering that many of the fish you catch from the coast are under minimum size or are of a vulnerable status, aiding a clean catch and release, but at the same time a hooked fish hardly ever gets off

My mother gifted me a locking folder Kershaw knife (2.25" edge),many years ago.
Heavy and thick brass ends on the handle (quillons?).
Have just posted the knife to a Kwakwaka'Wakw First Nations carver to do his choice of engravings into the brass. He's a mid coast style carver which I admire the most for symbolisms, details and relief depth in the engraving. I know I won't be disappointed, quite exciting, actually. Bottom line will be $250+

I opened this at the same times as opening a bunch of classifieds tabs... First post I saw was the Lanshan (which I assumed was for sale)...really confused me when I read the subsequent "replies"...

Such an excellent multitool, and a bargain. I grabbed one from Amazon or somewhere on a deal a few years ago for £60, but I didn’t get the ratchet set and corkscrew with it. Been tempted by the ratchet set, but I have a mini ratchet set already so can’t really justify it. Compared to my Charge TTi, the Swisstool is the better tool, especially in hand. The Leatherman can dig right into your hand if you’re gripping hard with the pliers.

Leatherman lives in the van because the built in bit driver and assorted bits make it very versatile, Swisstool is in the kitchen drawer for home tasks and EDC if need be.
