Pocketknife

Victorinox Swiss Army Tinker Knife

I left my pocketknife with the kids in Buenos Aires. I could have packed it in my luggage, but I decided that since the last time I traveled by air I ended up donating my pocketknife to the TSA, I may as well donate this one to someone I know. Especially since any kind of hardware seems to be exorbitantly priced in Buenos Aires. I ordered a replacement from Amazon when I got home ($20) and it arrived yesterday. I also thought I would check to see how much it would cost to send one to B.A., but they won't do it. They now have a whole list of things they won't ship to Argentina, which makes me wonder what, if anything, they will ship.

2-3 years back, I did some usage stats on the various blades of my knife, see

I had one with corkscrew once. It failed on one tough cork. My Philips bit works pretty well. It is larger than Stu's. My first Swiss Army Knife lasted years. Now they don't seem to last so long. Get lost when traveling mostly. I had Wenger once. The quality was inferior.
