What can I use a multi-tool for?
Such a multi-tool sounds useful, but when does a multi-tool really come in handy? The answer to that question is: always. You never know when you're going to need it, but a pocket-sized multi-tool is always handy to have with you. For the road bike, a multi-tool in your saddle bag is ideal for adjusting your bike on the go. For jobs such as: laying laminate, laying tiles, sealing, sanding and (iron) sawing, a multi-tool also serves as the best pocket-sized solution.
A multi-tool usually consists of at least pliers, a knife and a screwdriver. In addition, there are often additional parts such as a: bottle opener, saw, ruler or scissors. Depending on model and brand, there are also separate accessories for sale and replace. This allows you to make your multi-tool completely personal and to your liking.

Forge de Laguiole
Many people immediately recognize the style and design of a Laguiole knife, even if they do not know the origin. The slender, traditional blades with the bee (or fly) on the backbone. We often hear people refer to them as "grandfather's pocket knife" or table knives in classy restaurants. The sommelier pocket knives, with an equally iconic corkscrew. It is an unmistakable design. So much so, that it is regularly imitated.
The name Laguiole is derived from the village where these knives come from. The village of Laguiole in Aubrac, France. Each knife made at the Forge de Laguiole is created, assembled and finished by a single master knifesmith. That means that every knife is made by hand in France. The knives are known for using natural handle material, such as wood, horn or bone. Although today there are models available with more modern materials for those who like it.
The history of the cutlery industry in Laguiole dates back to 1828, when the first knife maker settled in the village. The knives were originally made as simple pocket knives for farmers. Today Fore de Laguiole has about 100 employees and is an established value. The knives are not only pocket knives, but also a trusted name and a symbol of beauty and quality among collectors.
Opinel was founded in France by Joseph Opinel in his family workshop. Since then, the shape of the traditional Opinel pocket knife has not changed. Opinel usually uses beech wood or ''fayard'' for the handle, but they also use oak, olive, walnut or boxwood. Opinel says each wooden handle has its own personality, knots, tone and veining. Opinel believes in sustainability and therefore only sources wood from locally managed forests. In the beginning, Opinel only used carbon steel for their pocket knives, and this has been refined over the years. Carbon steel is easy to resharpen, but corrosion is more likely to occur. In addition to carbon steel, Opinel also uses stainless steel for their products. Opinel has optimized this steel, perfectly balancing the amount of carbon and chromium, creating the best compromise between corrosion resistance and mechanical strength. Opinel offers a quality pocket knife for a competitive price. No wonder they have been around for over 130 years.

Benchmade is a popular knife brand founded in 1987 America by Les deAsis. Before that, Benchmade only made Custom Balisongs under the name Bali-song inc. This led to the first production of the Bali-Song 68.
From here Benchmade grew into one of the largest players in the American market. The brand focuses 100% to this day on quality, customer relationships and innovation.
Benchmade started small in a shop in California, 1980. After the success of the first Bali-song model: The 68, the company grew over the next 8 years into a complete knife manufacturer. Who, in addition to the successful Balisongs, also started selling fixed knives and pocket knives.
Les thought it was time for a new name, this name had to encompass the drive for quality and passion for the handmade knives. The new name Benchmade was introduced in 1987, the name expressed exactly what the company stood for.
In 1990, Benchmade moves its operation to Oregon, the epicenter of knife production. Here, the brand gained access to new technologies, such as a high-power laser cutter.
To this day, Benchmade continues to grow into an increasingly stronger player in the knife world. And that makes sense, because after all these years the brand has never let go of its core values, the focus on quality, innovation, customer relationships and responsible business ethics.
