Looking good! Never heard of rambutan though. Looks like a lychee, but hairy :D
I love lychees. Does the rambutan taste similar?

That's looking a bit chunky for a regular Yeoman, has that one got pliers too?

Nice - a very versatile (if somewhat chunky) SAK!

I've never owned a SAK with pliers, but could be interested, however I'm not sure what I'd use them for, but that may be just lack of imagination... For most pliers-type jobs it seems like I'd usually need something hefiter, like those on my Leatherman (Knifeless) Fuse, but the Fuse is too big and heavy to carry around all day... What do you think are the most useful applications for the SAK pliers?

Yes it is definitely small size. But it is very useful in my daily activities. For sure I use it for light duty tasks only, like pulling car fuse, removing staples, cutting small wire and much more. It's been countless times the little pliers help me. That's why when I leave home I always carry SAK with pliers.

Think of the small SAK pliers as an extension of your fingers.  When you need to pinch or hold something the little pliers are quite nice.  Craft work is also an area where the SAK pliers come in handy.  I recently sewed up a leather sheath and used the pliers to pull the needle thru the holes.  I've also used them for added reach to grasp something.  This is especially handy when the thinness of the pliers is better suited vs thick fingers.

Fair enough, I'm almost convinced, it's just that it's such a thick layer! I have thought possibly about getting my Cybertool 29 modded so that it only has the bit driver and pliers and scissors, so it's just a tool, but not sure how feasible that would be to do, as what would you do with the scale and liner on the side that normally has the corkscrew cutout?

RE: Winking rambutan flavor...The ones here (Southern California, USA) taste like green grapes with a hint of coconut. But in their native region I hear they are sweeter.

RE: SAK pliers (91mm and 111mm) I don't think of them the way I think of heavy duty pliers. 
  • They can hold a pin while a lighter flame is applied to it (to sterilize to lance a blister while hiking, for instance)
  • They are good for repairing eyeglass hinges (cap lifter or metal file tip to pry hinge apart, pliers to squeeze together)
  • I use 2 SAKs with pliers to add or remove loops/links to necklace chains
  • The wire cutter works fine on smaller wires, and I use the pliers to hold wires while soldering where it would be too hot to touch.
  • In the absence of a socket, I use them on electronics nuts around potentiometers, switches and audio jacks
Anytime you need a lot of force, of course you'd want SwissTool or Wenger 130mm/Rangergrip type..Though when I need larger pliers, I generally prefer the slip joint type, not the needle-nose shape.

My Hunter and what's left of a 6 year old batch of Whole wheat hardtack. After 6 years sitting in a closet it's still almost edible  :facepalm:. Thise stuff is so hard I think it would be better as a sharpening stone then as breakfast.

Jeep the SAK of the auto world or is it SAK the Jeep of the Knife world?
