Looking at making a new scale for the cryo out of copper spacer with pocket for the spring, and an acrylic top, to keep from having to mill the acrylic for the spring… Still don’t think I can make it work though… I’m not that good.
Also looking at Moon Glow sales on the RAT 2… Just gotta pick a color
Thinking of one color on one side, one color on the other;
Someone on EDCF asked about doing a Skeletool with a 1/4” hex driver. Am looking if it is possible to cut thedriver to take the bits,like I did with my Wave driver… Maybe.
a .38 Special, another 9mm, and a .45 Colt..
New Acrylester scale on Kershaw Cryo… I call it Inferno, but IIRC the material was called sunset. Its an absolute Bitch to take pics of this stuff, it has a great ”chatoyant”effect, a yellow sparkling sheen that moves with the light, like the stripes and ripples in high grade curly maple… Love it!
Used Spirit awl to ream out the primer flash hole on a non re loadable 9mm shell, RAT to cut accessory cord, Zippo to melt cord end. Only thing I used that wasn’t my EDC was my Lee reloading press to seat the .357 mag bullet(158grain JSP)
Z0mbiSl4y3r sent me a Ontario RAT 2!!
Used todays knife, my Amherst hunter to open the package;
GREAT size and shape! Love the feel!
Bit Kit used to move the clip to left hand tip up;
RAT is my EDC for the rest of the day, with one of my favorite fobs stolen off my silver Cryo;
SRM 735 and Amherst Cutlery semi custom Canoe (high grade 420 and real Ivory)
Got my Nite-Ie HipClip in, thanks to Powerring for turning me onto these things with the one he put on his Rebar, I just had to try it on the Spirit.
Set on the pliers pivot end, ans far up as I could go and be comfortable with it clearing the pivot rivet head. Put on this end so gravity keeps the tool closed, not pulls on it to open… A pet peeve of mine with the Wave clip, is that if your real active the tool handles come open since they have it on the oposite end as the pliers pivot… The spirti is a tighter closing tool, but I still felt better about it being on this end than the other.
Thicker than I thought it would be… I might re-bend/re-tension it some to grip my belt tighter… Will give it some time and see how I like it.
Gripable for pliers use;
Tucks into my palm for most tool usage;
whats become pretty much standard for random task days, the gear I know I can rely on the most. Plus my Olight i3S, that I for got to take off… Note double Multi tools, I’ve dropped the Wingman a few times lately, almost lost it in snow banks in the work yard… so I’ve started carrying a backup, the skeletool, its a more secure carry caribinered off to a belt loop.
Going from the Gerber Paraframe, to my Case Peanut, in the Kydex sheath I made for it, and carried it with a few years ago. Nothing wrong with the Gerber, its a great little laser of a knife…. But as they say, variety is the spice of life.
