It must have a cap lifter to qualify as a multitool
Back in the day any self respecting Land Rover had to have an old style cap lifter from a cooldrink fridge fitted at the rear
Actually mine has a hole in it below the right tail lamp that I've been thinking of "fixing" with a bottle opener. (Image removed from quote.)
No one can argue that one of the finest, most useful and sought-after knives was made WAY more useful by the addition of a cap liter!! This knife had it all...a fine mystery stainless steel blade with a heat treat that could cut through most major brands of butter...loosely attached to a hollow handle made from beer can class aluminum. The hollow handle came with the tools one would need to rebuild society in the wake of nuclear war, and it had a compass in the butt that pointed in a direction most of the time...sometimes North! All of this was housed in a sheath made of "linoleum leather" that would hold up to the rigors of...well, not much. In the pouch was a sharpening stone that I am convinced was just a piece of pumice so you could grind away any callouses. (Image removed from quote.)
Not a happy Gilmore here! (Sorry! Couldn't resist.) Have you damaged a flat SD because of the cap lifter? I've got no problem with the cap lifter in the flat SD of SAKs. I use my tools within the limits I imagine them to have, and I think the pivot pins would fail before the tool itself would.
Cap lifting is an action, not a tool imo. Hell... I see caplifters even on shovels..
Hello thereThis thread is heading my way of goodness.Some Multitool chat and then some Land Rover stuff as well !!!!!There is any number of places on a Landrover - Series and Defender - to open a beer bottle and I have used many of them. Until I fixed one with a bit of string in the cab my most common trick was to open the door, hold open with my elbow and use the door latch as an opener with the other hand, all whilst driving. I must however say it was always low alcohol beer so not much drinking and driving. The LM is/was always on hand as well because Land Rover.
