I can't help myself....it's like the movie Conspiracy Therory, when Mel Gibson saw a copy of a Catcher in the Rye, he bought it.   

Whenever a nice Ranger in $19 - $25 range shipped pops up...... :facepalm:

Blue, sterile scales. (yeah, I know the toothpick is sticking out)  :facepalm:

Oh yes that is very awesome 8) :o :like: I like the knife case you have them in :tu: What kind is that if you don't mind me asking :think:

Thank you!!!  It's this one:

I have about 3 different sizes of them....they are sturdy and keep everything organized.

Ranger is really cool; one of the models to feature the "Camping" logo.

From the top the Ranger is just a Mountaineer + wood saw.
But underneath it has two extra tools, the long thin screwdriver and a tiny chisel.
I wonder why the Mountaineer has a blank space where one of these extras would fit. The chisel is kind of useless, but the long screwdriver is great, as anyone who has tried to wire a light socket will know.

Sad to say, I still haven't found a convincing reason to buy a Ranger. The pliers on the Craftsman may be tiny but they're jolly useful.

Love it. Why do so few models have the small flathead behind the saw?  :think:

That is curious isn't it.  Any knife that has only one of the saws has no back-side tool on the saw layer.  But with both saws, they add the chisel and screwdriver.  I wonder what the reasoning is.

On the newer models they have 5 tools on the back and I wished the older ones did too :ahhh I am currently trying to track one of those down as well for EDC so I can put my older one up so I don't mess it up :whistle: :D

I like the pliers but never had a use for them with what I do and I always have a LM with me so I decided to drop some of the weight of the Swisschamp and went to the Champion and then now down to the Ranger :D By this time next year I may be down to a Solo if this keeps up :rofl:

Had couple as a kid.  Was my favorite though i did not like the "camping" engraving in it.  But it has the perfect tools i think.  Would have bought it again instead of the Harvester if they had an Alox version

I think it's because Vic wants you to buy several and have to decide which you like!  :D  If they made the one perfect SAK, sales numbers would suffer. On the flip side, having RA, I can live without all the extra backside stuff and those long uninterrupted springs on the back translate into strength and confidence, at least to me. The only broken Vic back spring I've seen in 45 years was on one of those backside tool springs. Another reason I like older Ranger/Master Craftsman models with less back side tools if I have a choice. Weird, nonsensical? Yes, yes. :D

Two eras...
