What SAK is this a knock-off of?
« on: July 31, 2010, 02:27:33 PM »
Hi, first post.  :) I was cleaning out my closet and found this SAK.  How do I link photos from photobucket so I can post pictures?

Make a tool idiot proof and someone will make a better idiot. Also, Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

OK mate welcome & all  :D :D

On the Photobucket picture you want to post click on direct link(second line below the photo) & save(right click).
Now in your forum post click on the Insert Hyperlink square , the square with the globe picture above the  :o smiley  to get this--->[url][url] now paste the saved direct link from photobucket [url]here[url].
Good luck mate it gets real easy after a couple of goes.

I think it is interesting how it has two back scales.

Unfortunately, it's a knock-off. :/

The closest comparative model that would be an actual SAK would be the Victorinox Sportsman II, which would have large blade, nail file/cleaner, bottle opener/wire stripper/large flathead screwdriver, can opener/small flathead screwdriver, corkscrew, and awl/reamer.  The only tool you'd not have would be a dedicated Phillips driver. :)

Thanks for the insert pic.  It is a fairly good knock-off, except the scissors which do a 360 when you open them :(.

It's a CHAK. As in "Chinese Army Knife".  ;)

Hey, they got a big army.. they have to keep it cheap.



I found mine after raiding the desk of a fired employee (come on, you know you do it too). I was looking for a good stapler, or maybe a business card holder. Found this cheap CHAK instead. I guess it wasn't good enough for him to take with him.

Anyway, the scales are some kind of ABS resin type plastic. Not at all nice to fondle like cellidor. All of the implements are smaller and thinner than my Explorer, and even though they are only one layer different in thickness, the CHAK is half as thick. The blade is almost half as thick as well. And the Phillips driver is rather sad.

I keep it with the intention of passing it to my daughter when she is older. I figure her first SAK will get destroyed, and it might as well be a CHAK instead. On the converse, if after some time she fails to lose or ruin it, I will buy her a SAK of her choosing.

Actually, I stand corrected on the closest comparative model; I forgot about the scissors, so it'd actually be an Aluminus, however you spell it.  :salute:

Thanks for the help guys.  My scales are are steel.  They are affixed weird.   They are glued/placed onto the top and then a tab is folded down under the end liner to keep them from falling, being taken, off.   Mine also has no plus tools. :(

I expect someone better than I could tell you what it is closest to, but do bear in mind this probably wasn't a direct knock off of anything, more someone using the SAK idea and filling it with the common and regular type tools.

I'm back!!
