Watches and knives

I am a big fan of edc collecting and these two items are my favourite things to collect in this genre. I often get asked why I like collecting both and it is occasionally a tough question as if I was to focus on one I could probably build up a better collection. However, every now and then I find a watch and knife combination that fits well together.聽
Does anyone else like to match their watches to things other people don鈥檛 think of matching them with?

Thank you I really like the opinel but after getting 2 Higonokami knives I decided that I鈥檇 only be buying ones with pocket clips now. Opinel knives are really good though.聽

As a matter of fact yes I do 馃榿

This will save you carrying two items, Sicura made a wristwatch in the 70's called the Sicura Safari and it had an integrated Victorinox blade. I imagine they are hard to find but it was an interesting idea and I seem to remember Richard Mille made a Knife Watch too.

Nice but maybe not as practical馃槀. Leatherman also have a watch called the Tempo Tread I think where each link in the bracelet is a different type of screw bit. A cool idea and ok in a pinch if you don鈥檛 need much torque but a bit useless compared to a regular sized equivalent.聽
They are fun though.聽

I'd feel like the poor mans James Bond with that it's awesome! lol

Knives are so easy to make and watches so easy to mod that you could do your own creations. Cheap grinder from Harbour freight with cut off and grinding disks. Tons of options for a Seiko mod with cheap watch tool set and a loupe.

Thanks! It's one of my favorites and a present from my wife. It is a ZT 0642 Sinkevitch design and they've been discontinued but are still available so if you like it I would get one while you can.聽

Cheers

Actually just in the process of making my first knife now. It鈥檚 going to be a fixed blade. I don鈥檛 really go in for modifying watches unless we鈥檙e talking about straps. Took apart my Swatch Irony and put it back together and it was almost more trouble than it was worth. Almost馃槈

if you heat your blade and let it air cool you remove temper to work with it. then heat it and quench in oil to restore temper and bake in your oven for hardness.聽
