    Picked up a little peanut lighter because you never know when you may need a flame. Something generally water right, very small and easy to keep on a lanyard or just your belt clip

    Think it shipped from China so it took a while to get here but was under 5 bucks lol. Need to find my lighter fluid to fill it and try it out.

    First knife I ever bought was this CRKT Convergence

    Wasn't into knives at the time but like the clean and simple look

    For those of you looking for a well designed, good quality, yet inexpensive knife, you can check out Byrd.

    Byrd is an offshoot of Spyderco, and all the knives are designed by Spyderco, but made in China. That said, some Spyderco knives are also made in China.

    I think of it as Gibson vs. Epiphone guitars.

    Anyway I picked up a Byrd Cara Cara 2 because it got solid reviews, was under 30 bucks and I wouldn't feel bad abusing it. Currently using this a lot around the house while I do reno work. Very sharp point which is working well for detailing the painters tape I have been putting down.

    It came extremely sharp, and I have been using it to work on my knife sharpening technique using the CRKT Veff sharpening kit

    @loki

    Thanks for these reviews. Clearly you're passionate over this stuff and it's good to see that there's some reason behind your madness. I normally just bought stuff that was inexpensive and looked cool as tits. LOL

    Throwing knives, ninja stars, Rambo knives... LOL


    BTW - I saw a similar lighter on-line. Make sure it's retains the fluid "zippo" style. Otherwise, you may want to pack it with something to absorb the lighter fluid.

    Ok @loki. I have one of those Spyderco knives lying around. They are well made and not too pricey.

    This used to be part of my EDC.

    Eddie Bauer knife with light and bottle opener. Also a little mini tool just in case.

    I forgot about this. It's lived In my wallet for 3-4 years now. Got it at Lee valley for $5. And have used it countless times.

    Lee valley may still carry them. I imagine they aren't $5 anymore. Very sharp and very sturdy.

    Not sure - but just a side note - last I checked, their website is based on USD and do not reflect the Canadian location prices. However, the e-flyer is location-based but only shows "sale" items.

    They do have plenty of multi-tools that can be found useful. Check the camping section

    http://www.basspro.com/Benchmade-Min...product/40722/

    but like Default User mentioned, this is definitely the USD price, and not only that, but based on being sold in the US so you can't just assume a simple currency conversion.

    But I would pick up one of these
