 a Friend of mine is looking for one of these. Let me know if you can get your hands on another one please. He is in Gauteng

I have been looking for one as well, and got a lead now to where I may possibly find one in Nebraska.
That is a very handy knife

Here is another nice one, and at current exchange rate it should set you back around R950 (Just note tax was not added to the price)

Sadly so, but maybe we lucky to get one in a store. I have seen various models on display here.
I try to avoid stopping and looking at these knives stands since I'm always tempted to justify another purchase  :lol8:

Tom I know what you mean. 3 years ago we spent Christmas with my brother in law that lives in Switzerland. We spent time in the official Swiss Army Knife factory shop/museum. I was determined to buy a knife. Took me about 30 minutes to make up my mind. There were just to many to choose from.

@Hardy de Kock  what will you recommend as a edc for a woman as todayís knife of the day. Bear in my that the lady in my life is not interested in a teeny toy knife. More a medium size utility. Maybe something with a screwdriver too.  Must be easy to open, not because of her nails, but because of her lack of nails.  Naelkouer.. :biggrin:

No, im not looking at scoring a knife from you, but thanks for the offer. Just trying to pick your brain and have the discussion. Maybe people think that girl knives must be small, but in my experience my wife certainly wants a proper tool rather than a dinky toy. (Ok, that may have come out wrong). Shes a DIYer and gardener. Her tools work

Hardy, i showed her some options. Her mind is made up. The Leatherman Crater c33t

https://www.awesometools.co.za/product/crater-c33t/

https://www.leatherman.com/knives

Leatherman prices in SA are normally on par with the USD prices in the US. But this one seems way higher. Must be around R600 if i do the rule of thumb conversion.  Import then

You ideally don't want a knife in 420HC unless you have a very simple and efficient sharpening system. 
The Crater is seriously low end but if you get it cheap and treat it as disposable then go for it.

I bought a collection of knives from a friend who wanted to cash out.
I do not use the Victorinoxís
And if I donít use it I usually give it away to someone who can use it.
