    hi guys and girls,

    I need a knife or multitool with a proper saw or a proper blade don't really want seration it would be nice if it had a wooden handle and German legal cause I can't tell which one is which and if it is legal. It would also be good to be under 40 euros and good steel I was looking at gerbers but are cold steel knives good or do they have bushcraft type knives?! I would like to keep out victorianix multitools because I want to be able to process wood and the blade is just to small for big pieces of wood.

    Thanks

    Hi,
    I would not want to have the saw and the knife in one tool.
    You would have to make compromises then I think.
    Opinel got very good blades (carbon and stainless) and they have two folding saws now.
    One with 200mm and one with 120mm sawblade, which looks like the knives.
    So I would choose the Opinel No.8 with carbon blade and the small folding saw.

    About 10€ for the knife and 20€ for the saw.
    The larger saw is about 30€.

    Opinel is always good, but keep it clean, otherwise the mechanism will corrode.

    Hi,
    yes they are both legal.
    I got mine (no.8) since 15 years and use it day by day.
    The knives need sometimes a drop of oil then they last a lifelong.

    Oh here a link to a page where you find a lot of "pimped" Opinels.

    Cold steel is fantastic. Best quality you an get for their reasonably prices. But I don't think they have what your looking for. They don't make saws, multi tools, or wood handles.

    I too have and use opinel for they're cheap and sharp and easy to sharpen and they're not bulky but fit your hand and they will fit in your trousers and they don't look aggressive so the cops won't mind and....

    Don't forget to lock once the blade is open!

    So xXdoomXx, what is it that makes a multitool illegal in Germany? Is it the locking blade? One-hand operation? Blade length? I remember reading something over a year ago when I was looking up some information on my Leatherman tool. I just happened across a discussion about Leatherman tools in Germany. Leatherman Tools themselves joined in the discussion and indicated it's possible for the manufacturer to get a certificate from the German government (no idea what branch) that would classify a Leatherman Tool as primarily a tool, making it legal to carry in public. I don't know if anything ever came of that, but I guess it's worth looking up. I have 2 Leatherman tools, one that has both a straight and a serrated blade and also has a saw (about 6,5 cm) that is an effective cutting tool. Might be work looking in to that 'tool' classification for products like this, just to make sure you're not missing out on a great option. Sure, no wood handle, but still a great tool.

    You really should:cool::D
    Got the serrated one, and with the thumb support
    at the knife blade its very good for carving, for both the serrated
    and the straight part.
    Maybe with the sheath wrapped in sandpaper and some rubber on your
    belt, this could be a "all in one Slingy on Track tool":D

    If you want a good knife from Germany, go to Solingen, more than 100 knifemakers:)
