Wow, I did not know there was a Deluxe version of the Climber! Looks hot! Though, apparently it has a philips screwdriver instead of a cork screw. I'm not a fan of "perpendicularly located" screwdrivers (I realize that that adjective clause looks weird but please say you understand what I mean) and prefer a corkscrew.

The Deluxe Climber does indeed have the corkscrew.  :tu:  :cheers:

I gave mine to my girl friend when I was drunk-ish and I think I kinda regret having done that hehe. As a compensation I'm still trying to like my Ranger more than the Climber. Though, for some unknown reason, I can't! I'm a saw- and file-lover but Ranger's file is a destroyer, unlike the "forgiving" and "easy" file of the SwissChamp. Which makes me kinda like the Ranger less...

Is your Ranger a newer model than your SwissChamp?  All of my SAKs have the finer-toothed files, including the Rangers, but mine are all older models.  As I understand it, the more recent Victorinox SAKs have a file more like the one on the Swisstool Spirit, and I assume that's the one you mean when you say it's a "destroyer"?

Oh, I think so. It's almost brand new -although I bought it second hand- so I doubt it's an older model. I never used a Swisstool Spirit but the file on the Ranger I mention is like a chainsaw :) For starters, one cannot use it to file down finger nails. I once attempted to file down a lump of lead on a silver ring which turned out to be a mistake. It removed a larger amount of lead from the ring and left wavy marks on the surface  :-\ For my purposes that file's not that practical. For harder metals though, it may be a good pick.

Maybe I should be looking out for the older model you're talking about.

Yep, that sounds like the Spirit file.  That's just another reason why I don't buy newer Vic SAKs and stick to the older models.

I'm right there with you on the backspring phillips.  I much prefer the in-line phillips and corkscrew.

Thanks all.  :hatsoff:

That one was from the 2006 SOSAK mod contest. All contestants modded a Climber that year to be submitted for judging by the members of SOSAK.

It took 3rd place.  Below is what it looked like then, before the patina naturally formed:

Thanks for the information, and the history on it. It has aged very well. That blue is just awesome.

Dropped my favourite Climber yesterday and cracked the top of the front scale...  :'(
I'm pissed....  :rant:

It didn't broke off but i can see and feel the line of crack. It's an early 2000 one, and the scales is the reason it is my favourite, still has the older deeper red shade, and the shield fitting is a bit better than on the later ones.

I'm tempted either to break the piece off and superglue it back, or just scrap those scales and put new ones in and just forget about it.

What do you think...?
