The Greatest SAK Combo Thread
« on: June 23, 2017, 08:19:34 PM »
Hey folks, I go back and forth on this all the time. I'm not sure if there is a perfect answer, in fact, I know there's not a perfect answer...  but I'd like to see some of you guys try.

This is one of my favorite combos (Farmer/Manager).... and I have a lot more ideas still to come.  So for those of you who like to keep it Swiss, on the key chain, in the pocket, or on the belt or whatever. Show some pics. :salute:

I'm a big fan of combos, but pliers and light and knife (typically). If I pick up a Swiss knife and then have to pick up a second one to carry with it, my first choice was wrong  :D

Seems like this is not the thread for 50ft  :D

I'm an urban kind of guy and and can't remember the last time I needed a pair of pliers.  I keep a pair of needle nose in my guitar bag to cut excess string with the wire-cutting portion. I personally find it awesome just to think of which combo I shall try next.  I'm thinking tomorrow of a Rover/Fisherman Combo.... hmmm... saks.....  :drool: :D  :salute:

Great idea for a thread Amigo.

Classic holds down the scissors, so that free's you up for all sorts of 84/91/93 japes.

Farmer or Camper for minimal carry,

Woodsman or Swisschamp for maximum carry with some overlap

Or SI/Pioneer/Soldier/Spartan for super minimal.

I'm liking the OHT and Signature Lite team I've been carrying.  Minimized redundancy  (don't need two sets of T&T), while covering one of the shortfalls of the 111mm SAKs (IMO), no small pen blade.

Well I think in my opinion it's either the farmer with a leatherman skeletool or juice model or it's gotta be my custom alox blue farmer with the can opener replaced by an Electricians blade and added scissors and pliers to it.

What are these words I am reading?  :think:  I assume you are talking about your favorite He-Man character, or breakfast beverage.  This particular thread is devoted only to those options offered by our neutral, industrious, banking, peaceful, cheese-making friends. 

Btw, I was whittling a SAK display at work the other day and a local fireman asked me what I was doing.  I told him I was making a display for my Swiss Army Knives...  his response was awesome:

Are you from Sweden?   :rofl:

But seriously, this thread is about Swiss Army Knife combos, people.  ;)
