could they not fit an awl on the backlayer?
Awl is on the back of the opener layer, so no openers = no awl.  :-\
Not at awl?? :think:

In case anyone is wondering, the plain-edge main blade on this model is sharpened to a point, unlike the combo edge OH blades like on the OHT, 2008 Soldier, etc.

As an owner of a plain edge OH(Sentinal with clip), it is sharpened to the point :sak:

Hey Tim!!

It has arrived!!   :sak:
Other than having the urge to want to trade in the phillips screwdriver with an auger.  It's a great knife!! This SAK is definately meant for hunters and bushcrafters!

You did great!!!

Thanks Tim!!!! :tu: :salute:

could someone with machining skills turn the philips into one of those circular awls, like on the Wenger Mike Horn Ranger?
this would satisfy the awl cravings people are having on this thread.

Gday guys i just turned a phillips head into a awl/drill on a Wenger. I just used a hand file, only took about 30 minutes or so to get it sorted. It will tear open a can [key word is tear] it is not a can opener, cut cord, and drill wood.

Or you can carry something like a Sportsman or Tourist so you can get the opener layer back, and a smaller blade.

Then again, I'm carrying... *counts* several knives these days. :)

Actually, with corkscrew it is a HIKER XT, not a Hunter XT. The Hiker is available in Canada and Europe but not U.S. Of course you may be able find them in U.S. on eBay or elsewhere.

Hiker XT is a good name... too bad they didn't use it initially in Europe. Since Wenger/WengerNA is still confused about their Phillips and Corkscrew model numbers to this day, it's not a surprise that there are still naming issues with the Victorinox knives which in a way is understandable for a global company.

I just wish you could buy the orange scales separately.  Then I could have more of these:



... and re clothe all those knives that had to give up their shirts for similar brothers.

Yeah I agree, Hiker XT would suit it more considering the normal naming convention that goes on with victorniox.
I don't think they even released the phillips head model here.
I swapped the scales to my forester for a while, but went back to the red DD scales on Forester.
Wish you could get stayglow scales without the rescue tool markings on them tbh :)

...
Exactly... so no name conflict in that market, ...and since they already have the Trailmaster... maybe having the Hiker XT would be just a bit too confusing.

Red DD scales are great also, ... I wonder if I can buy some red DD scales  I think I'll look into that.

In parts of Europe the corkscrew version is also sold as the Hunter.

Yes, that's the issue... the fact that in Canada it is the Hiker XT, and in Europe it is the Hunter XT ...  but in the US the Hunter XT has the Phillips ....  If Eurpoe would have started with the Hiker XT name things would be a lot less confusing... Not sure the US will even get the Corkscrew version nor will Canada get the Phillips version because they were smart enough to adopt the Robertson driver... Phillips is still pretty common though, if they do it won't be confusing because one will be the Hiker XT and the other the Hunter XT.

Yes, Vic names can often be confusing. I prefer the company's ID altho it too at times can be confusing but less so. But anyone who "breaks" the code can usually identify the tools, blade types, & scale compositions & colors.
1. The black (anthracite) & OD scales XT Hunter w/Phillips: 0.8441MC4US1.
2. The organge & black scales XT Hunter w/Phillips: 0.8441.MC9US2.
3. The orange & black scales XT Hunter (Hiker) w/CS: 0.8341.MC9.
4. The orange & black scales XS Hunter w/CS but no wood saw: 0.8331.MC9.
