    I wasn't really expecting that to be the case funny enough,......now if Vic does that with this model, why don't they do it to all their other similar sized models I wonder? I've still got a scar on my finger due to a large flat bladed screwdriver folding in on me when I were a kid,.......if you end up needing to put a lot of pressure on the handle, it will easily fold on you.:mad:

    At age 12, I became a Boy Scout and got the original of this knife. It was my EDC for the next 15 years until I impulsively gave it to a girl friend (not girlfriend) who was leaving town forever. It happened that more than a decade later, I ran into her again. During our reminiscing, I asked what had happened to the Kamp King, and she replied that a short time after I had turned it over to her it had "gone missing." Frankly, I don't blame her for having ditched it. It was a nasty old thing by then; broken off blade tip, bail missing, oxidation and mung in the works. It had been mightily abused and seldom maintained while I had it, which included games of "stretch," digging in dirt, kind of "sharpened" on rocks and cinder blocks. But I liked and sort of bonded with it. However, when it was gone, I moved on to a Swiss Army Knife, which was clearly superior, and so with multiples since it remains to this day.

    Not long ago, a friend spotted this in a yard sale, and remembering my old KK (from 40 years earlier!), got it for me. He paid $1 for it, for which I reimbursed him with thanks, then put it away in my keepsake box. Recently, however, I was moved to take it out of retirement and carry it once again. It has been in my pocket for a week now, and sonofagun! You can go back :dance: .

    Victorinox Explorer and a Leatherman Micra.

    And some cheap folding nail clippers that also have scissors, file, and blade built in that lives nicely on my keychain.

    SAK Spartan with SE main blade; LM Squirt PS-4; LM Blast in my bag. May have to wear a suit late in the week; my red Alox Cadet will get a chance to do some walk-about. :cool:

    L'chaim!

    At first, I thought it remarkable that he remembered a detail like the Kamp King I carried way back then, but he said I was well known in those days for carrying a camera and that pocket knife everywhere. I hadn't realized I was such a knifeknut then, even with just one cheapo camping knife. The camera was another story, since after all, I was a photographer. :)

    This was the first heavy jaw version I had seen, when the owner of a police supply shop deployed it to open a package. I said name your price for the multi-tool and he said he had just special ordered it in. I left the shop with the multi-tool and a smile and it's been on my belt for 15 years. I have many others but this one just belongs at my side.

    I carry these four every day:
    Leatherman Surge, in belt sheath
    Leathermanman Skeletool, clipped in front pocket
    Leathermanan Style cs, clipped on belt loop
    Victorinox Huntsman in front pocket.

    The Skeletool is my go-to tool for most tasks. It doesn't have enough features to be an only multitool, but I don't look at it as a multitool, I look at it as a folding knife with bonus features.

    The style gets used primarily for the nail file and occasionally the scissors. I could probably get by without it, but it is so small and light, I don't even notice it.

    The Huntsman is there primarily for the tweezers and toothpick. I also like the thin blades when carving stuff.

    The Surge doesn't get used that often, but every time I think about eliminating it from my EDC, I end up using it for something and I'm very thankful I have it.

    My Leatherman Pulse has been with me for some 15 years. Although I bought newer Leatherman multis after this, I always got back to the Pulse. It's a very complete tool, it has all the implements I need and more.
