NOT voting can be very dangerous too. This nut job ran over her husband with her Jeep because he didn't vote.

Good thing she wasn't carrying a knife, only an SUV. Maybe he should've had one though.

I subscribe to a (modified) Heinlein(sp) approach to voting;
One should be a Veteran, (business owner, or land owner) in order to vote.
In that, if you havent a vested interest in how things are going.. go about your business.

You left out the smiley, people will think you're serious.


Has anyone tried the OHT Leatherman? I want a replacement for my old Supertool, and haven't found one locally to try out. By the time I get the right blade out on the old Supertool, someone has invariably already completed the task...

Haven't seen the OHT myself but it looks pretty good. I've been carrying a Wave for years and without a doubt the one handed knife access is the single best feature. Looks like the use the same technology for the OHT other than the new plier deploy. Only thing I might worry about is how rugged the plier jaws are. Hard to get a feel for that from a video.

Yes, that is exactly what I wonder about. The pliers on the Supertool and the Wave are useful, otherwise one could carry a smaller, lighter blade/saw/screwdriver combo.

Or just a boxcutter if you are looking to slash an opponent...

That's always the trade off. I remember when the skellatool came out, I thought it would be great since it was so much smaller and lighter. Then I got my hands on one and it felt like I would break it with the first hard use.

I have several knives and multi tools. A couple of the knives cost over $100.

What do I carry? A $7 Barlow. My grandfather carried one for as long as I can remember and used it every day. He would replace them when both sides of the handle fell off. If it's good enough for him it's good bough for me.
