I used to have just one BOB, and it stayed at the house, where it would be completely out of reach when I needed it most.

So now mini BOB insures that I get to Serious BOB.

J.D. and I discussed the ultimate, no frills, do-all field knife.

We looked at brand after brand, every style, every shape.

Everything fell short in different categories.

Steels? Don't get me started. With the alphabet of new, special steels out there, it got maddening. We'd argue the merits of VG-LMNOP vs. VG-QRST.

We looked at crazy-expensive knives. Everybody made them for Operators, or they were made by Operators.....

Then, an epiphany.

And, we looked at Khukris.

And we found a place in Nepal that does them the old fashioned way, out of leaf springs from trucks.

We spec-ed them out, and J.D. handled the heavy lifting on it.

We're working out details on an old-school test thread.

Ok I'll go. I bought a cabellas multi tool for about 6$ so far it works great and it's part of my edc. It has a pair of scissors ,pliers, flathead and Philips screw driver,knife,saw,and a bottle opener. It seems pretty sturdy, the only problem I have had is that the spring for the scissors falls out besides that it's great.

Keep putting it through its paces and see if it holds up over time. If so, you found a quality tool at a bargain price.
