When I was into horses from the course of when I was 10-13, I wanted an Equestrian pretty badly for it's hoofpick; but I got stuck with a crappy ten-dollar special from Tractor Supply that had a clip-point blade, a comb, a hoof-knife, a hoof pick, and a useless awl (and I still have it!). Now that it's a liner-lock model, with the heavier pins, I'm thinking about making an OH version. So, maybe waiting 10-12 years wasn't too bad; seeing as it's now heavily upgraded.  I'm thinking OH serrated blade and swapping the corkscrew for a backside Phillips (since the Equestrian is one of the few 111mms that has a combo tool; meaning no decent Phillips driver otherwise) and calling it the Roper.

That would be cool 111mm mod.
The mod I would like to see is magnifying glass added to the 111mm series.  :tu:

Rapidray - my only 111, the Garant, also has that stop - I got it earlier this year from Navarra, Spain - just had to have those orange tools and a use for an orange Vic lanyard!
So cool.

Your friends in Navarra just became my friends in Navarra  ;). Thanks for this tip!

A little fruit this morning with breakfast. No fork, so improvised with the...shackle opener/marlin spike! Which worked out very well!
Have you owners of this tool found any more unusual uses??

But the $64,000 question is...does it make  a better fork than the fish scaler??

I don’t have a SAK with that style of marlinspike but I have an Alox with the other type (a single straight spike with an eye in it). I used that recently to push a cloth belt through some very wide belt-holders on a kinda jumpsuit the wife has.

Of course it does! When you improvise, anything is better. Which is why the SAK will never die. Just so many uses.  :cheers:

For a size comparison from the top to the bottom. The 91mm Woodsman, the WorkChamp XL, the Buck 112, and last is the Caset Trapper.  And just for fun, a side view!

Scissors - just about everyone loves the scissors. It is one of my favorite tools that is a must have! Especially during the Christmas season. Next to blade use, it is second on tool time.

The hoof cleaner. Not just for horses. A great little tool for getting stones out of tire threads. Which is kinda the same thing when you think about it.   :whistle:

I never knew it existed!  I could use that for both the 4 legged and wheeled modes of transportation!

Didn't know the XL was usable. Here it is only a shelf queen, no user.

How would Mr. Spock say? Fascinating!

I really like that side view. The XL towering like a titan among the pygmies!

Today tool use was with the inline Phillips. Nice small and with a long reach! I can see why a lot of users love the inline tools!
