Bit of a long story of how I got into 111mm. I always thought they were to big.
One item on my bucket list was to assemble my own knife in Brunnen. Well two months ago my wife and I went to Europe for 40 days. Brunnen was on the itinerary. I booked a date and time and arrived in Brunnen. We went to Ibach as I still had time for my date. There was a sale on Victorinox knives and I got this nomad for 19 Euro's. The box said Nomad but Sakwiki now calls it the (new) Picknicker.
I used nearly every tool on the tour. I had to open tins, pull corks out of wine bottles, open beer bottles, cut bread and "wurst" and last but not least make a hole in my belt because I lost 6 kilo's in the heat of France and Spain!
In Madrid I had to buy new shorts as I took only one pair. I bought those in the photo and found that they have a nomad pocket.
Now I have 6 of these pretty 111's
This qualifies you for a badge if your up to it. At least if you havent already :cheers:

Thanks Jaya!  This thread got me thinking about 111s again.  Went and unpacked my GAK.

Since its the holidays, I too got to play with my only user 111mm... a custom OHF-PE... used that locking caplifter to tighten and loosen the screw on my lansky sharpener...

Ahh, that GAK is nice. I like the DAKs but both the 111mm DAKs are lacking a saw. And Vic saws are awesome!

They sure are Mac :D.  I picked it up to use as a hiking/camping knife.  The tool set is just like the Hiker, but it's hard to top that caplifter for strength.

I’d love to get my hands on the German border police knife, and the Dutch army knife

My guess is that blade has been reground to a plain edge, as all the GAKs I have seen have the standard forward serrations. I have seen people regrind the blades too so not outside the realm of possibilities.

My third and newest 111mm model, the Forester with walnut scales. Very pretty knife, something you'd take to a picnic or something, but I guess as soon as my next 111mm one arrives, an Outrider, I'll do a scale swap, as I for me scissors are pretty important, and width isn't a factor because I don't carry these big SAK's in my pockets anyway.

The One Handed Trekker (non-serrated) is currently my favorite 111 mm SAKs.  Mine rides in my medical kit in a cargo pocket ready to be a backup in case that's the only tool I still have.  Someday I'd like to acquire the regular Trekker and a Locksmith.

Question: the liner lock on the more modern 111 mm SAKs seems pretty solid to me.  How does the older style lock with the release on the side compare in terms of strength?
