    A couple of our members got these this week - Stanley FatMax Folding Pocket Chisel. I personally use Bahco CURVED 25mm 1" Wood Wrecking Chisel.

    Is that a butterfly chisel? Wouldn't that fall foul of the same laws that prohibit butterfly knives?

    No worse than me carrying a 10cm long blade on my belt. Having spoken with a police detective friend (lucky me), she said that because it has a purpose (and is generally kept with associative gear - i.e. archery equipment) it's fine. Carrying it without evidential purpose is when it would be sketchy. Its similar to carrying a baseball / cricket bat without the ball it is perceived as a weapon.

    Fair enough, I was just wondering as butterfly knives are more heavily restricted than normal fixed blade / lock blade knives over 3" that you can carry for a good reason.

    Leatherman Charge TTi - superb S30V steel main blade (the other models are much softer 420HC), a entire tool kit stuffed in the back (torx, hex, flathead and Phillips drivers which are all changeable), a darned good file and a decent set of pliers.

    Pricey but rock solid guarantee (25 years) and they last forever.

    Does it last forever when repeatedly hammered into the wooden frame of a boss?

    I've just had a look at it. I wouldn't even try using it as a knife for getting arrows out of wood for two reasons:

    1. The knife blade doesn't lock, so whacking it with a mallet it likely to make the blade fold - possibly sliging fingers.

    2. It costs a ridiculous 200.
