Does anyone else think that Victorinox should produce a Swisstool Spirit version with non-locking blades (like on their standard SAKs)? The only thing  stopping me from getting a Spirit is the fact that it locks!  :-[

P.S. Sorry about the misleading title!

It's not as easy as simply removing the slider locks though. :( (the blades then flop around loosely)  So a bit more of a redesign than that, but it seems like it would be worth it :salute:

In order to be certain of having the right tool for every job.........one must first acquire a lot of tools

Common sence in their lawmakers would also help . In no way is a Spirit a weapon . Personally , I don't think locking really matters in a multi .

I agree, but seeing as the knife laws look like they're only going to get more strict, I can't imagine that locking blades are going to be made legal any time soon.  ???

That would be ideal, you would have drivers etc. that don't fold on you, but the non-locking blade etc. would make it legal!

P.S. Do Victorinox read this forum?  :D

Not for me there isn't :D

There's nothing wrong with the Juice, I'd just prefer a robust, fully equipped MT :)

I totally agree with you zed - locking drivers etc and non-locking blade would be perfect.

There are always the non-locking Bear tools

I know what you mean though.   A Spirit with locking drivers but non-locking blades would be most welcome.  A nice strong backspring and perhaps a choil like on the Spyderco UKPK.

I'm not taking any more mod orders at present, sorry.

Has anyone who wasn't being a Pratt ever gotten busted in connection with a Multitool ? I have heard there have been a few Custodial sentences in re: repeat offenders with locking folders .

Wouldn't a Vic. Mechanic or Cybertool 34 be a good UK legal answer . I would certainly rather have either of those than a Juice .

Well I'm not really a plier user (much prefer molegrips) but the sak pliers are a bit limited on utility :-\
