Once upon a time, I had a Swiss Army knife. My dad bought it for me when I was around 10, back when we went fishing from time to time. It was an amazing model called Cybertool with lots of screwdriver capacities, scissors, pliers, stuff. It was a series made for computer hardware work, but it allowed you to do everything a regular SA knife could, and more. Since then it had never left me, and despite losing some of the detachable elements along the way, it held true to the saying that a Swiss Army knife lasts forever.
That is, until the shooting for my graduation film. By some misfortune it fell from my pocket, and I never found it. I was a bit heartbroken, because I always used it, had it for almost 15 years, and as you can guess, I had great emotional attachment to it.
Well, to mark the occasion of my studies being over, my mom told me to get something nice that she'd pay for. So I jumped on the occasion and decided to stop being Swiss Army knife-less. After taking a good hard look at every existing model, I realized that I had no choice but to get a Cybertool again. But better than the previous one.
Introducing my new best friend for (at least) the next 20 years.
My first knife had 34 tools, this one has 41. That wood saw does NOT fuck around, lemme tell you.
Oh yeah, and the website I ordered it from had a nice engraving option.
Basically, I'm happy. It's a little thing, but I was so used to having my MacGyver pocket toolset with me all the time, that I really felt like shit when I lost it.
Now to get a good sharpening stone to make sure my knives are always ready to cut some saucisson slices.
