You are right but I already carry a full sized sheath most days and it might be a bit much :ahhh I also carry a cell phone holder next to my sheath so not a lot of room :whistle: :D

Just picked up a Surge form the sales forum.   :D

I thought the Surge would just feel like an over-sized Wave, but it feels like a MT with its own unique character --- a big character!  I have small hands, but I feel I can handle the Surge fine.

I swapped out some tools to give the fit-out I prefer (outside scissors, awl, large bit holder, Phillips and slotted fixed drivers).

All I needed to do was to remove the smaller slotted blades and fitted a Phillips.  Surge already had an awl and outside scissors.



I had to use the Ph from my Wave, so I'm looking out for another (the second large bit holder is a placeholder for now), and I may try the Wave slotted driver because it is a useful general purpose size whereas the Surge large slotted driver seems a bit big.  Only drawback so far is the Surge scissors are left-hand one-hand opening, whereas I really like the convenience of the right-hand one-hand opening of the Vic modded scissors on the Wave.

I always had the impression that a Wave's internal tool doesn't always lock nicely in a surge. The locking groove is shallower and may slip on pressure. I could be very well wrong. Maybe BP could do some testing?  ;)

Yes, you are right.  The Fuse/Blast Phillips driver does not make a solid click when deployed (unlike the original internal tools).  I can also put pressure on the Phillips and make it dis-engage.   :(

This makes me want to re-think my Surge fit out.  Maybe I'll go back to the stock layout.

The cut out on the Surge and Wave is the same depth, but the tang on the Surge tool is larger (more material).   Taking a Dremel to the Wave slot and deepening it won't help. The Wave tools would need extra material added to pad it out.

I don't have any ST tools to check against.

I put my Surge tools back in place.  I think the Wave and Surge will each serve a different purpose.   :)

Cool! Yes the ST300 Phillips is what you want.  :pok:

Only drawback so far is the Surge scissors are left-hand one-hand opening, whereas I really like the convenience of the right-hand one-hand opening of the Vic modded scissors on the Wave.
I open the scissors right-handed, pushing them out with my middle finger from underneath and finishing with my thumb.
