    Well, I've been a Dad for more than a quarter century, so of course I carry a pocket knife !

    When I'm working in the woods, I have both a Ka-Bar and a Leatherman hanging off my belt, but for everyday pocket carry (from shorts to tux) it's the classic Swiss micro...

    @Galcobar Yeah, I was having a hard time figuring out how to spell that word. I figured I would just sound it out and hope the heck the rest of you reading the post would know what the heck I was talking about.

    @idvsego Thanks for the tip. Sounds like it might a good weekend project for me.
    Careful with the torx scews. They are frequently loctited and not always the best quality, they love to strip.

    I have rounded multiple torx bits while working on my knives, not a screw yet though. If you have a stubborn one, a little time in the freezer will make the loctite a bit brittle and easier to work with.

    I'll have to try this. I have a Para 2 that I was going to try tip up, but gave up after realizing I was actually twisting the torx bit that I was using.

    some people go the opposite way and blow a hair dryer on it for a while too. Also, good knife.

    Ditto. I carry the para 2 when I'm more casual or outdoors (at least when the Ka-Bar isn't appropriate). Very happy with it.

    Freezer sounds like a good idea. That little snap when a screw breaks loose can be exciting. lol

    I have a Swiss Army knife in my bag. In my pocket, I have either an Opinel #8 or Buck Canoe knife that I use the smaller blade for doing things like opening boxes. I have a single blade Swiss Army knife somewhere. I think my wife swiped it for her purse

    Buck is great, but Case makes a really nice variety of classic Canoes if that's a design you like.
