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.
