£5.40 watchgecko Erika
Apologies for lack of plectrum
If this is the way we're going.. The knife is amazing. Had it for years now and keep it razor sharp, always comes in handy.
Just grabbed a Pelagos LHD at Heathrow.
Stupid price rise added £200 to it.
Why all the knives ?
I’ve never needed one in an urban environment this i can recall
Nice leather pouch .. is there a selvedge connection too
Link to the watch strap please?

Bit weird isn't it.
Weird masculinity/boy scout thing innit.
I was going to agree, but then I realised I've got some sort of knife at work, at home, and on my motorbike. Other than commuting by train I usually have one close by.
I won't post mine as the composition will be fucked up by a million tissues, that have lived in every pocket since October.
Speaking frankly, home and office penknives main use is maintenance of nails and facial hair.
Have you got a LH watch on your left wrist?
Yes. It's nice.
Don't really care about the lefty stuff, but figured that it's another nice point of difference from my BB58
Cheers mate. Yeah it's sold by Rivetandhide in London and they're mainly Japanese/USA selvedge etc. They have some very nice stuff :)
Tbh I just keep the knife in my BRP bag and when it needs used it's there. Can't ever go wrong having one abou with you, never know when it's needed. I got nail clippers at home ;)
I've had a Swiss Army Knife in my pocket pretty much every day for the past 30 years.
Mind you, this is how I dress at the weekend:
I've had a SAK in my pocket for the last 3 years, unless I'm flying.
Mainly for nails, opening boxes or as hoc screw driver needs.
Couldn't imagine not having one on me.
Fair enough. Just wondered.
I wore a my watch on my right for most of my life and never found it an issue.
It's the one @umop3pisdn posted a couple of months ago. This was the link, though it now redirects to a different strap.
Should you see one you like, use the code WATCHGECKO for 10% off.
I have one of these on my keyring. Useful but not that knifey. I would say that scissors are way more useful than a knife
I guess its just down to habits.
I don't really feel the need to carry a tool to clean my fingernails on my person.
I open a lot of boxes at home and at work but have tools to do that at those locations anyway.
I take a knife with me when ski touring, climbing, camping etc etc but only really use it for cutting my lunch up.
I did find myself in a situation where I came across a deer that had been run over and left for dead with multiple open fractures etc and was glad to be carrying a knife to euthanize it. I only had a knife with me that was suitable to do that through coincidence though, wouldn't carry one routinely for that.
I guess it boils down to whether you're somebody who likes to feel prepared with a knife in their pocket or somebody who gets irritated by having redundant stuff in the pockets. I only know one person in the UK who routinely carries a knife and uses it every day and that is my farmer friend who uses it to open animal feed sacks.
Who the fuck carries a pen tho?
American office workers.
In their short sleeved shirt pocket.
Tucked into kackeeeez.
I carry a knife, and a multitool (Gerber Dime) on my keychain. Have one of them micro Olight torches with the keys, too.
I don’t know. I seem to constantly need to clean my knife, but I can’t remember the last time I needed a pen. Could well be I tend to utilize the knife every chance I get, but if I had to choose it’d be the pen I ditch.
Fuck I've done it again.
I have a thin, light Cross ballpoint that lives in my suit jacket and when I was travelling I carried one of these zebra mini expandz (which are fucking amazing)
But generally in my free time I don't.
I have a space pen in my pocket most days.
And a comb.
I wish I needed a comb... 👴
