Finally retired my Spyderco and replaced it with . . .
( and yes I will get a post up about the Spydreco Alcyone – not one negative thing to say about it! )
Imported from Maniago, Italy – THE place for Italian made knives -this electrician’s lockback is a little different take on what most folks consider an electrician’s knife . . .
Here it is shown with a “Klein and Son’s” electrician’s knife – the “Klein” or similar pattern being what just about everybody thinks of when you say electrician’s knife . . .
A world of difference between the two – the “Mac” is so much more refined . . .
Let’s realize we are talking about what you would consider almost a “scut” knife – chop boxes up – strip wire – open packages – your every day pocket beasty . . .
But there is no reason we can’t look damn good while all that is going on . . .
So what about “it”? Well – the ergos are great – the fit/finish is top notch – the polish on the blades? – flawless – weighs in at 4.8 oz vs the Klein @ 3.7 oz – it has a keyring attachment as well as a lanyard hole – the FRN ( fiberglass reinforced nylon ) scales have an almost fine grit for texturing – we shall see how that works – and at $18.99?? Should have gotten two of them . . .
Folks – I don’t know what to tell you about this – other than I’m going to stuff it in my pocket and use the Hell out of it for about six months and see where we are at then . . .
To see the entire Mac Coltellerie line that Smoky Mountain carries <<<CLICK HERE>>> – other than reading some reviews of different knives of theirs – I don’t know a lot so I just figured the best way was just to jump in and buy one . . .
And if you just have to have that traditional Klein? – <<<CLICK HERE>>> – this will get you started . . .
These two old Klein’s of mine have seen more than their share of hard use over the years and they never failed to perform
Got more “stuff” to post and have more “stuff” coming from SMKW – and seriously folks – you need go check out their “Middle of May / Drop a Day Sale” for some really special sales on some special items . . .
( Yes I know – I have taken the first step and have finally admitted I have a problem – Not Enough Room! – LMAO! )
What’s in YOUR pocket?
Have Fun! – Run the Gun! – and remember – Fish Heads are Cheap!!
