Who else would like to see more Silver Tech?
« on: October 27, 2013, 09:37:54 PM »
I think Silver Tech are my favorite scales. I wish they had them in 58mm as well. Who else would like to see it available for other models?

The 91mm scales should be plus though.

Are there any non LED Silver Tech 58mm scales available? I'd like to keep the toothpick and tweezers but like those scales.

People seem to prefer Silver Tech over red, black, blue and other Cellidor colors and and the same time prefer red, black and blue (as well as other colors) much over the silver for alox. Go figure.

Now, jk aside, I personally like the look but do not like to be reminded that these are cheap, hollow scales resulting from cost reduction. I do not think that any of the solid-through Cellidor scales can be Silver Tech and that may be a reason why they are not so common on the 58 mm series because these are the only Cell. scales that (with two exceptions as I know - the backside scale for the pen and frontside scale for electronics) are still solid-through (filled in), probably because they are so thin to begin with.

'know what? I've never seen one in person. I have a feeling they're more impressive in person than on web images.

How is it different than just a transluscent scaled SAK? Because for me at least, if it is going to be transluscent, I'd prefer Onyx, Emerald, Sapphire, or Ruby color.

I'm very old school when it comes to Vic SAKs. Red cellidor or silver alox. Period.

My Silver Tech Spartan was a present from my wife. I like the 58 mm ones, if only they would not have had the red shield.

Yet another fan of the SilverTech scales here. I like them, but I would be happy enough if they showed up on more 91 mm models.

Sorry, I'm a sucker for camo...

More choices on more knives would be a good thing. A camo Mountaineer, for example.

It's very easy to swap scales from one SAK to another, so you can just buy a camo Spartan and put those scales on a Mountaineer. Or buy a set of camo scales (from felinevet :) ). There are a number of sellers on eBay who do just that.

Funny thing...

I had to take a quick trip down to Florida (where I am at the moment), and could only bring my Leatherman Style PS (airport carry-on idiocy). While I like it, I also wanted more robust scissors, and scoured the Daytona area for ANY MTs at a reasonable price (as in, NOT Military Surplus store rip-off prices).

I finally found a Target nearby that had Leatherman and Vic stuff.

And ended up with a Silvertech Climber.

It looks pretty frikkin sweet.

Oh... and pairs nicely with the Style PS, IMO.

I am normally a fan of tools with very bright colored scales, which make them easier to find if you set them down (or drop them in leaf clutter). However, the Silvertech is a pretty good second, and they look like they're all futuristic.

Ouch ouch ouch

In fairness to Thunderpants, Silvertech is primarily for collectors in my mind - because it looks nice. Doesn't do the tool any favours other than that :shrug:

In regular daily use, it's brittle, doesn't allow use of plus tools, and the scales clearly show all the crud and grime collecting beneath that's hidden with conventional scales. This is why I never bought another one - Silvertech is drawer fodder, and I don't buy SAKs for that. It's not a great choice for the scales on a working tool IMHO
