Thanks Im just not familiar enough to know these answers.


I think that if there is a project, this kind of knife can be made.
The only problem is the low. In Italy automatic knives are weapons and there are some restriction for production and shipping.

I don't think that Lion Steel makes autos. I believe that Fox, Massaro, and Due Buoi all make Leverlocks :idea:
Could Lion Steel male one ? I have no clue :?
Whatever we select must be a "USER", if I get one. I have enough "case queens" :wink:

I'd use that so much I'd wear it out :wink: I guess I'd have to order two :idea: [semi-serious] :)
Really serious - I always carry an EDC [usually single blade] to cut with, plus a Swiss Army Knife. never used for cutting] :lol:
The "tools" I use most ? Regular screwdriver, Philips screwdriver, Scissors, Hook remover, Saw, and File, proably in [about] that order :idea:
This Aitor has; saw, bottle opener, screwdriver and small file, adding [grinding] a hook remover should be easy :idea:
[Especially for a manufaturer].
Anything with a [2nd] blade like that would really "wind my clock" 8) :!:
A "clip" or drop-point for the main blade and could leave the Swiss in the glove box. If, a cork screw was replaced with a Philips head :)

A "user" multi is a great idea. I'm all for that too. :) So far I've seen a special 'Talkblade" knife section on the Massaro website, but no picture. I have also seen a "Talkblade" knife on the Mikov websight. Is this the same idea?

Is this still open or did the idea blow up?

Hi!

I think Lionsteel would be willing to do (also) this one, if there's demand!

The Outdoor 7, sold by SKM, is made by Lion Steel.
It is an excellent knife with almost "German quality" !!!!
If [for the American market] they would exchange the corkscrew for a Philipshead screwdriver it would be more appealing :idea:
For some reason, Americans do not equate outdoor activity with wine and corkscrews are not needed for Beer :wink:
I assume they make all their knives with similar quality.

I always wondered about the corkscrews on hunting knives. They are useless to me.

Apparently in Europe (or maybe just Germany?) it is customary to open a bottle of wine in celebration as soon as the animal is down. I guesss that explains it.

I'd rather have a Phillips head, too.

Euro-hunting is a much more formal and group oriented activity.
In America with huge a frontier and open public lands, it becme a much more individual activity.
Sitting down and celebrating with a bottle of wine [while the servants took care of dressing the game] never
developed into a tradition.
The lack of an aristocracy [and servant class] also made hunting available to more of the citizenry,
thus corkscrews and hunting did not become as strongly associated :idea:

Seems like in America a beer bottle opener would be the beverage of choice :P tool
