More to the point, who's going to do them for us now 15 years later? :)

It's awesome that you were able to score such a beautiful example of Scott's work Def!  :tu:

Here is some documentation that you might want:

One other thing to note...  My Soldier has Scott's initials and either a date or serial number engraved at the top inside of one of the frame pieces.  You might want to check yours for more info.

Beautiful knives!  :salute:

I didn't notice (or had forgot) that anyone had done these before, and I have been steadily collecting materials to attempt this very concept myself, but with mitred joints between scales and bolsters, and with scale tools fitted too. I think I've sussed out the methodology for them now, and hope to have at least one done by Christmas.

Al, be sure to see the PDF document above.  It's has very good details on doing the mod.

OK.  Let me know if there are issues with the document and I'll try to correct the permissions.

OK, Got it!  :tu: (I just needed to use the laptop)

His methodology is quite different to what I'll be doing. I'll not be able to use soldering or adhesives like he did, as I'll be creating the channels in each scale components for the scale tools, and I won't be able to risk solder or glue flowing into the tool voids. This means that I'll have to use a purely pinned construction method. I will be picking up on some old tips from the Sheffield knife industry though, which will help secure the various components, such as ensuring all pins that aren't pivot pins are not perpendicular to the body of the knife. The mitred joints should also help the bolsters lock the materials in, so there's more than just the pins holding the wood/horn scales on.

Hello Everyone,
It's Scott aka Knifecoop. Those Old School SAKS bring back some memories, thanks for posting them!

Def (Grant), pinged me about the thread last night. Life sort of got in the way and I  took  a break from modding SAKS for about 10+ years. I still have all the parts and tools as well as my Victorinox collection. After seeing your kind comments, I might mod a few this winter once things slow down a bit. Unfortunately, I don't have any of the Old School mods in my collection. I dug out this early mod I did with Mammoth Ivory bolsters and ebony handles (aka Ebony & Ivory).

Thanks Again,
Scott

Hello  Again!
NutSAK was commenting about engraving on the inside of the frame, typically I engraved my initials J.S.K. and the date in most of the mods I did.  Those stag soldiers and amber bone recruits were my favorites. That bone on the recruits was early 1930's bone from Cattaraugus.

Thanks!
Scott

Not Old School but another one  of my old mods from around 2008, my CadetX. Did you know that with a bit of work you can tie a Reeve lanyard and it makes a great place for a toothpick for the Alox knives.
