Harvstmn31 kindly got me 3 minichamps from the airport sale thingy.  Just standard red ones.  I got 2 sets of scales (onyx & orange) from Della's knives, and a set of silvertech 'midnite' scales from m0rkoni.  This is the result:



And all for £50.  What do yous think?

Very nice Ruth :tu:
You should try your hand at making some wood scales for one ;)
Here's one I did using an incense stick holder...I've since gifted it on to a good friend :)


There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Sign me up. New to the board, and also new to my Midnite Minichamp, having carried an Alox Rambler on my keychain for the last few years instead. The Minichamp seems like a less elegant but more functional improvement (esp because of the LED), though it sure feels clumsy in my pocket, after that tiny Rambler. I've resisted pocket chains or clips so far, but with holes worn though the coin pockets of most of my jeans, it looks like that's the next step  :think:

I too like the awl.  I might be getting a minichamp soon, I have some bids in on some on ebay.  Anybody ever mod the cuticle pusher with a dremal and turn it into an awl?  I can't think of a reason I would use the cuticle pusher but have used an awl several times to start a hole for a screw when I didn't have a drill handy.

That's weird, most people are the opposite. Hate clowns, but like mine.  :think:


Your lucky you didn't see the clown avatar I joined with.

The minichamp is a great little tool.  I own 4 of them.  Two original and two newer.  I used to always have a minichamp on my keychain, but about 2 years ago I downsized to the Manager.  It was all of the tools I used on my minichamp and is more compact.

Yes that's true, but I've been out to sea a long time.

Been carrying my minichamp for a couple of weeks now and it has revised all of my previous ideas/plans for what other SAK to carry. I have a Spartan and have previously had a Compact (confiscated by the TSA), and have long wanted to replace the Spartan with another Compact. But now that I have the Minichamp, I no longer see the benefit to swapping - I no longer need the Plus scale tools or the scissors, and I never needed the hook.

I think once my SAK-mania set in, it was easy for me to disregard the Spartan - after the Compact, it felt clunky to me to have separate cap lifter and bottle openers, and I thought I loved the scissors, and I thought two blades was redundant. The Compact felt exquisitely economical to me. But I discovered that I never used the scissors, pen, pin, eyeglass screwdriver, or hook ( :think: ). So, losing the Compact and gaining a Minichamp not only put things in perspective for me, but also gave me back a new old friend, the Spartan: not as awe-inspiringly complete as the SwissChamp or economical like the Waiter, but (a) more than I needed once I got the Minichamp, (b) still small, by SAK standards, and (c) a knife I already owned.

You know, the downside of having huge collections of knives is that individually they don't mean as much. I'm glad I'm back to carrying and enjoying my Spartan, and I look forward to giving my kid one.

Note: I'm aware this post wasn't really about the Minichamp, but the subtext here is that if I didn't have the pen, scissors, and other supplemental tools on my keychain, I'd have much more anxiety about what to be carrying on the big knife. Thanks, Minichamp.

Hi,
I own a Victorinox 7 blade MiniChamp complete with toothpick and tweezers. The scales have an orange tiger print on them.
My problem is that I can't locate a Victorinox part number for it. All information I had on it disappeared into thin air.
Could somebody help me with this. Thank you in advance for your replies.

Keep this topic alive?

I just got a used Midnight MiniChamp (and my first MiniChamp) this weekend for $7.   :climber:

Already on my keychain, I can see already it's going to be one of my favorite SAK.  I would like to take it apart for cleaning, but I believe it would ruin the attachment of the scales to rivets.  I wouldn't mind buying a new set of scales, but looking through Amazon.com and Fleabay, it looks like only the standard scales are available as replacements.  I don't mind loosing the LED, but the pen is somewhat handy.  ???  If anyone knows of a source of new scales that allows one to continue to use the pen, please let me know.

Ok I'm in, I'll confess I bought the Alox just because. At least the regular minichamp gets used
