As a boy I was allowed to have a penknife from about the age of 10. Since then I have tended to carry pocket knives with me on a regular basis.

I have three knives that often travel with me, though two might have become illegal in the UK in the recent past because they lock.

The knives are:

  • Victorinox Huntsman
  • Durol locking knife
  • Roxon KS-S501

Long notes

I have provided detailed notes as usual for this episode, and these can be viewed here.

Link to the other knive podcast

Hi Dave, Thank you for this podcast. A nice knife is like a nice fountain pen. Way too little chances to use it while it is such a nice product. Thanks to your hint I listened to the podcast about OPINEL and it reminded me about mine, somewhere in a box, I was disappointed that it was'nt stainless steel. I dug it out and learned that carbon steel is harder and can get a patina similar to other metall. Now, I like this rusty knive, because I understand :) Cheers Reto
