LemmyKnowsBest,

LOL You had to take your phone out of the case because you needed your phone to take a picture of your phone

three,

Ohhhhh fuck me. I thought the phone had a screen on the back to passthrough the image from the front camera.

Showroom7561,

That Signal looks amazing!

Saw it in this color and I HAD to have it.

mipadaitu,

Very similar to my EDC. I love my Signal, really can’t beat it for the size.

FlashZordon,
@FlashZordon@lemmy.world avatar

It’s great!

SendMePhotos,

Is there any other one you would have bought instead?

FlashZordon,
@FlashZordon@lemmy.world avatar

I had a Leatherman Skeletool for almost a decade before the Signal and almost bought another one when I finally lost it.

SendMePhotos,

I ordered and received the Signal. I like it overall. My only complaint is why is the clip plastic?

constantokra,

I’ve been eyeing the signal for when I actually know i’m working with my hands. I always carry a sog powerpint, and I use the heck out of it. It’s the smallest tool that can actually do real work, so if you want something smaller, check them out. Oh, and you could get them on aliexpress for like 30 bucks last time I checked.

@constantokra @SendMePhotos Oh and of course if you're looking for something without pliers, a 91mm or 93mm(alox) Victorinox is very good. The cons are no locking tools, one handed blade, or pocket clip

Climber gives you blades, scissors, screwdrivers, can and bottle opener, Huntsman adds a wood saw, Mountaineer adds the metal file/precision screwdriver/metal saw, Ranger adds both. The Huntsman is super cheap from victorinox themselves and the Mountaineer is the most expensive.

constantokra,

I have a champ from the 90s, and the tools are all great, but I mostly find myself needing pliers and a blade. It’s great for.outdoors though.

I actually just finished cleaning up a Swiss army knife I found in a house I was cleaning out. I had the scales off, because it was super nasty, and they were solid in the back, so i’m guessing it’s oldish, which might explain why I can’t figure out which model it is. Everything sizeable I find has the hook, and mine, unfortunately, does not.

You seem to know a lot about them. Any idea what it is, or where I could look to figure it out?

@constantokra That's interesting. I'd check SAK Wiki or field it with the folks on r/victorinox (they also have a discord server).

The main tools are identical to the swiss champ, but the back tools are a bit different. There's also no sewing eye on the reamer/awl. So maybe it's an older version of the swiss champ. The newer one also has plus scales so it has a pen included which you would see the slot for on this side of the scales.

constantokra,

Thanks! I checked the wiki, which I didn’t.know existed, and it’s a 7 layer champion, from between 1977 and 1985. Apparently that model had a lot of changes in its lineup, the older models did not have hooks, and the even older models only had 6 layers.

Ah, another Pixel enjoyer… Hello there!

Do you also use GrapheneOS?

@tkk13909 @FlashZordon CalyxOS and other ROM user here, degoogled phones are awesome

FlashZordon,
@FlashZordon@lemmy.world avatar

No at the moment. Been looking at De-Googling for a bit now however.

tkk13909,

You definitely should try it. It’s super easy to install!

@FlashZordon @tkk13909 Definitely check out CalyxOS. There's been a lot of drama between the graphene and calyx communities, but mostly attacks and misinformation from the graphene side. The Calyx foundation is really cool and they provide good support. Graphene enhances the android security model (this is useful perhaps but extreme for most people) while Calyx maintains it - most custom ROMs weaken the security model by not relocking the bootloader.
