What kind of serrations is that on the serrated blade?
Please excuse a dumb question (I don’t know much about carbon fiber), but is the frame strong / solid enough if you use e.g. a screw driver on a really stuck screw where the multitool will be twisted?
This is the dream! A customizable multitool without requiring mods, just put it together with your tools of choice!
Older multitools like the supertool can get away with no locks because when the tool it deployed blades still can't fully close. An outside opening tool like this without either a slip joint or lock is a lawsuit waiting to happen imo. If it's outside facing tools you need some form of rentention.
Thanks everyone.The serration design is originally from an old knife from Colt called the Cobra. I had a go at replicating it on a Charge mod I did a while back: https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,28429.msg493275.html#msg493275Still not sure if it actually works, but I just like the way it looks.That's a good question and I'm not really confident that the answer would be a positive one without performing some real world tests. The carbon-fibre scales being relatively thick should resist twisting well and the central metal core will give the handles some 3-dimensional rigidity.Glad you like the idea. I'm interested to hear what tools would constitute your preferred setup.The original Supertool did have proper locking tools, although the mechanism was very crude.It's a good point, but Ver.3 does have slip joints for every tool and blade.
Considering it is a scale/chassis change of material, 30g weight saving is still significant. I wish someday we will live to see a new kind of material that could replace some of the metal we use in MT, now that would drastically save tons of weight.
