There is a lot to like about the Deluxe Angler, but it's a 5-layer SAK, which seems a bit big.





And it is discontinued.  :(

Even at 5-layers....it would be smaller than the Swiss Champ.

I don't really need the fish scaler....handy as it might be for somethings. So, if I see one, I'll let ya know.....   :pok:

Down here where we need a scaler. Bass and pan fish abound down here, so it would be handy! Most of the trout here are at grocery stores  :whistle:

For me, I want a blade and scissors, the Vic pliers are new to me and will see use, the hook remover will also see use for the aggressive feeders that get hooked deep, the scaler will probably never see it's intended use

I like the inlay on the scale, but nothing else really sets it apart  :think:

Not really, no. But the toolset could be considered to be fishing oriented.   :dunno:

Exactly, you can't beat perch for a shore lunch, and they're so easy to lift a couple of skinless fillets off of  :drool:  :drool:

I have a fun story involving a Recruit
It was the mid 90's and recreational shark fishing was becoming popular around here, with a number of sponsored derbies taking place.
One in particular was being heavily promoted by a local radio station, and they were going to be set up for the weigh in on the Halifax waterfront, so I decided to take it in with my young family.
Here's where it becomes a SAK fishing story.
The radio host announces a giveaway, the first person to come to the booth with a fishing related item wins a prize, there was a large crowd but no takers and the Dj kept asking, my oldest daughter who was around 9 at the time said "Dad we use your pocket knife when we fish can I take it up" so off she goes with my Recruit, the Dj made a big deal about the "young lady with the Swiss Army knife" and she won a set of lawn darts, the good ones with the sharpened steel tips, but I digress.
Back to the story, after a few songs the Host puts out another call for a prize and again no one comes forward, this time daughter# 2 asks for the Recruit, off she goes and the Dj takes note of the knife and gave her a T-shirt.
I thought it would end there, but no, another call for a prize and this time I handed the Recruit to a youngster standing nearby and off he goes, returns my knife and thanked me, this kept going with a new kid approaching me every time a giveaway was announced, with the Dj making comments about the Swiss Army knife.
After about a dozen giveaways all attributed to the Recruit, the Dj announced that the " little red knife would no longer count" and he would like to meet the real owner. So I went up and we both had a chuckle and we were both surprised that the knife always found its way back to me in the crowd.
Thanks for reading and here's a pic of that Recruit that had it's 15 minutes of fame  :cheers:

I like the ruler on the scaler, when in doubt you can measure to see if it’s of legal length.  :tu:
