    I got more than a few. The gentleman on my keychain. The current Army knife that has a locking blade. I use those. The Huntsman II is the one that has, and does everything I need for backpacking in a small package. So I have two of those.

    We did a demo in survival class. One locking blade and one SAK. Put them to the baton test to split a green branch to get to the dry center for fire starting. The locking blade was no more. As the lock was destroyed and the knife wouldn’t fold closed or lock open. The SAK kept on splitting for the rest of the students that didn’t bring their own.

    Mine are special editions not the red. Collector’s disease, I’m sure you understand.

    my favorite seegar cutter, got a wenger still going strong.

    broke one a few years ago and they sent me a vicky for replacement.

    it's still in the box.

    My second huntsman 2 was bought used. Because if I don’t want to work them, I’m wasting money. They are tools after all.
