    because you bought one without a nail file or hook
    I'm about to buy a new one to replace my leatherman squirt. can't decide on the swisschamp or handyman, but I'm leaning toward the handyman even though it's more expensive for less tools

              I stopped carrying the tinder everyday (I live in the city). The pouch for my SwissChamp is very tight, so I did see some wear on the malleable tinder pretty quickly from taking it in and out all day. I only carry the emergency tinder when I'm innawoods.

              It works just as advertised. It's a bit pricey, but I love knowing that I have multiple means of starting a fire and a great tool on my hip if I ever get separated from my gear/camp. There are a few things to keep in mind when using the Firefly (the toothpick replacement ferro rod) and the Fireant (spiral ferro rod) so that you don't break them or wear them down the wrong way. Just watch a couple youtube videos.

              But yea, it's nice having 2 emergency ferro rods and tinder always on my hip when innawoods.

      I guess it depends on the culture, in some countries it's some kind of collector's item, in western Europe it's just the knives we carry and we actually use. They're some of the best corkscrews around, the wood saw is perfect, scissors see heavy use, nail file is always nice... and it all fits in your pocket.

            As for the tools you say are so helpful, the bottle opener is shit since there's no leverage, you may as well put the base of the bottle in your shoe and knock it against the wall until the cork comes loose. The can opener is so shit you might just be better off bashing it with a rock, and if you need a dedicated opener to open a bottle then you have failed as a man.

              the best way to open a can without an opener is to grind the top against concrete/asphalt/a flat rock. You pretty quickly abrade the rolled bead away and the lid lifts right out.

              People keep forgetting to bring corkscrews. And even when you're at someone's house, they usually don't prepare a corkscrew in advance and it'd take 15 minutes of thrashing around the kitchen to get one out.

      wrap it in a washcloth and use a pair of vice grips to squeeze the scales together in the middle, over the central pin, until the awl will lock out tight again. it doesn't take much pressure at all and you can easily overdo it but its a simple fast fix
