I like the one Housil has under the Itis hood.

I like the old pattern German folding pick/shovel too. Nice solidity about it.

I had a Glock E tool once. It was good quality but the shovel blade and saw rusted up on me after heavy use.

then you don't use it enough. A nice way to prevent them from rusting is using WD40 and baking it on it if you are planning not to use it for a while.

"Baking" is a harsh word, but you only have to dry the WD40 out, to prevent sand sticking to it when using it again. The WD40 leaves a anti rust film on the metal. For baking we simply put them in the sun in the summer..
Sure, someone may one day kill me with my own gun.
But they'll have to beat me to death with it because it's empty.

A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kick boxing.

Hi,
I've finally bought this one, it looks as tough as a Russian tank and the price was still ok.
It's a bit smaller than the US and French tools, a bit heavier too but it looks great!
The leather is top quality (...Swiss made)
