Lanyards, zipper pulls, fire starters. What if anything do you like on your SAK?
« on: August 09, 2017, 06:38:03 AM »
I suppose I could post this thread in multiple tool threads, but I'm intending to find something for my SAK(s) and was wondering what if anything anyone else uses and why?

When I purchased a couple of new SAK's directly from Victorinox I decided to add a couple of their lanyards to my order. I was a little disappointed as their web site shows red cord with a black stopper. However, the ones I got are all black, both cord and stopper. Of course it's really not that big of a deal but it got me looking for other options.

A simple search on Amazon for knife lanyard, or pocket knife lanyard delivers all sorts of bizarre contraptions one could attach to their SAK. There are some rather large and thick looking paracord lanyards, some even have flint and striker included. (Honestly these appear a little large for a SAK - they might even dward a 91mm). There are some other nice looking ones with beaded ends, anything from hearts to skulls, some cheap some outrageously expensive (spyderco?). Then I found some regular zipper pulls which look like they'd do the trick. These are probably a bit shorter in general and I imagine use a slightly smaller diameter cord than the 500lb paracord.

Anyway, I was hoping to start a thread to see what other people are or enjoy using. I really just want something to fiddle with or make locating my SAK in my pocket a bit easier, but one that looks kind of cool wouldn't be a bad thing either.

Thoughts?

I like a lanyard to help locate it within a pocket and to add some grip on shorter SAKs.  The interesting thing is I have some SAKs without keyring and I quite like them that way.  On my 111mm SAKs they came with the SAK lanyard and pull with I also quite like.  Guess you can say I am pretty open to lanyards or none at all.

I like a leather or paracord lanyard. There are some really sweet and cheap beads on ebay - I got a Tibetan silver dragons head for £1.50 and will be ordering some more soon. With orange paracord it looks like the dragon is breathing fire!:

Come on Twiglet - everyone knows Dragons hate persimmons (wait, that might be why it's chucking it up). As you were.  :salute:

Besides, of all the commercially available dragon barf out there, persimmon flavor is clearly the tastiest and most popular. It's getting hard to find too, just the other day at Walmart there was only an empty shelf where the persimmon flavor would normally be, just a few cartons of radish flavor left. The prices will probably skyrocket now due to the demand exceeding the supply. Something must be done!  :ahhh

I dunno, the only way I can keep from killing threads is to be impertinent, while most of us can happily roll along being on topic, I blame the persimmons actually, I'm sure there is an epidemic on the way, good thing I live close to the CDC.  :D

Firstly, pfrsantos is right (not often that I can say those words together) - it's my job to drag a thread down so as much as I love you bro, back the fudge off.

Secondly, this persimmons thing is really getting out of hand. Should we inform the MTo consumer protection department and inform them?

And by fudge, do you mean smurf?  :o

Yes, we should inform all relevant agencies about the persimmon epidemic.

Like maybe yesterday.  :pok:

I'm comfortable enough here to show off my embarassingly small Wenger now because it's Wednesday. I also have an S biner attached to it, which is amazingly on topic in a spectacularly uncharacteristic way!  :D

Most of my SAKs have Vic's Lanyard... One has that TEC like clip and one without the split key ring holder...

A few have paracord lanyards... nice thing about this is that paracord lanyard comes and various colors... lanyards can be fully customizable to your liking...   lots of tutorial vids on how to tie a knot... :cheers:
