Recommendations Please Blade-less Multitool

I'm seeking the groups advice... I am looking for a quality, but hopefully cost effective smaller multitool. The restriction is I don't want it to contain a blade. I've seen a Leatherman Style PS on the American version of Amazon but can't seem to track a UK seller who hasn't added almost 75% plus o...

Re: EDC for a potential high threat situation.

What level 3A soft armour are you using?, I don't know of any rated to 5.56. Back on the ranges in my day a 5.56 would go right through front and back of any soft armour. It's by a company called Nexus I had it imported from the USA via some US Service personnel I know who are stationed in the UK a...

Re: EDC for a potential high threat situation.

I've taken on board about the cuffs. The multitool in the bag is non-locking and the single blade is less than 3cm length. (it's more of a bottle opener blade) My main multitool is a work issued device and is only carried in relation to work. (I'm always in uniform when I have it on me) I like the t...

Re: Knife sharpner / stone

Never had an issue and they always have a decent edge on them (kitchen and bushcraft knives...
