This maybe a stupid question but has anyone thought about doing a partnership with a company that edit hardcover books to print the content of the wiki on a yearly basis for instance? I would buy it and this could be a way to support this forum and the wiki contributors while having good info from SAK specialists. I know there are companies which do that for blogs for instance, and even for your Facebook publications. I believe they take a small fee but maybe a poll would give an idea of the number of people willing to buy such a great encyclopediaAnyway just a thought </Gee via Tapatalk>

I have a spready that does this let me know if you want me to send it to you for a quick ganderI initially read this to mean you have a chart of which layer each tool is in, so we could put L1 to indicate the blades are in the first layer, then L2 for scissors and L3 for openers on a Climber for example. I think could be handy for anyone who wanted to custom build discontinued items, or build Franken-knives while using the original orders on similar knives to potentially avoid "hiding" nail-nicks, etc. And SOOOO OCD - what's not to like .Or did you just mean a simple list of whether each tool is layer / scale / back? If so then I think we have that covered now (Phillis and fine screwdriver being a bit special because they appear in multiple places...), but let me know if you think the grouping / ordering should be changed.

And there is one more model that could go in the 6 layer table - It is a Handyman variation - Which the Wiki says is a SABI version, but I think could be an older version - So it could be known as Handyman (old) - Anyway the Fish Scaler replaces the pliers.I could even try this myself - I think adding a row would be easy enough!! Moving column around - No way!!!
As for my changesI have updated the Cybertool headings to mention S,M,L (thereby messing up the links in the first para) - Can any body help - I think it does not like the brackets in the headings I tried a slash too this also did not work
<h2 class="showhide_heading" id="CyberTool_29_S_">CyberTool 29 (S)</h2>
[#Cybertool_29_S_|Cybertool 29 (S)],
Might I suggest adding an index somewhere at the beginning of the page that explains the abbreviations used? Or did I miss it? I understand that L means the tool is found as inside the SAK, aka a layered tool, S stands for scale tool, B stands for back layer tool, but the occasional browser of SAKwiki might not know that. Just a thought
I'll address the sakselektor question when I'm a bit more awake.

Moving column around - No way!!!Lots of good ideas in there that I'll think about.Be careful with small edits to the tables since a bulk update (more will be coming to fix the ~hs~, etc...) of the tables will trample on any local edit there, so if knives are missing then adding them to the Wiki pages is the way to go ……….
Would it be at all useful to put this in the Wiki somewhere, which shows how you can move from Spartan to SwissChamp adding one tool layer at a time amongst the knives in the Victorinox 2015 catalogue? Or maybe an expanded version showing discontinued knives as well (which could get messy!)?
My preference is still the sequence I discuss above (all L,B,S together and within that Spartan, Champ, others) - But that's just me. If you do leave it as it is now - One change I would make is to swap the position of the CS and Phillips - So that all the L's and B's are together in that section
The hyperlinks to Champions and Cybertools don't work - That probably was me - Sorry
The hyperlinks to mainblade and awl and small blade don't work
The list of 'common to all' tools would be better with commas - This is really OCD !!!
For the six + layer table I don't think you need the extra text saying how many layers is in the SAK - It's in the table above - So unneccessarily doubles the depth of the table
The tool to model reference is brilliant - I always wanted one of those - I would be tempted not to bother with those tables for the Spartan toolset - As the tables are so big (eg check out the keyring!!) and pretty much all SAKS have the Spartan tool set, but the rest are really, really useful
The Cyberbits related SAKs table - Should probably be the Cybertool not the bits
Love the family tree too - Really nice - Really useful - That could go somewhere on the tools main page, or better still the page of 91mm (and 84mm) SAKs that does not have the layers ?? Someone else here did one of those with all the models, and as you say it was pretty complex - So I think your curent model one works best - And you can always cross reference a current model to an older model if you will
