yeah, it feels like a block of stainless steel, i didnt know the blade locks open and no play what so ever....the new ranger series is as tough as the swissgrip? cuz if it is, i may as well get me a ranger 75 just for the sake of it :D

Asides from knife blade it seems to have exactly the same tools as new ranger.

The Swissgrip is in the middle.
The saw is the same, as is the bottle opener (which does not show on my picture)
and the backspring tools.

The blade on the Swissgrip is a clip-point, like the old Rangers (below left).
These are, afaik, the largest blades you can get on a multitool.
The Vic OHT at the top left is for scale.

The pliers on the Swissgrip are much heavier-duty than on the New Rangers
(or any other multitool I have seen).  The New Rangers have needle-nose pliers
which are very precise and excellent for fine work.   The Swissgrip has regular
pliers which are the sturdiest I have seen on any multitool.

The long screwdriver on the Swissgrip also appears on the Alinghi (above),
and the Swisstool bit driver adapter will work on the Alinghi for that reason.

The New Ranger 174 (top right) has a bit driver in the handle (like the Swissgrip)
but does not have the long screwdriver for the bit adapter.

The file on the Swissgrip is from the 85mm line.
The New Ranger 70 (below) has a larger file.

Wow I guess I'd never considered that file on the NewRangers before. The size seems much more suitable to the big Rangers. Is that the largest file of any SAK?

Yes.  The file is about 3/4" longer than the file in Vic 111's like the Locksmith and the Workchamp.
