The Walker/Lumberjack owners club.
« on: April 10, 2020, 09:21:29 PM »
About a year ago I had to find a lighter tool set with a saw. I started working in a office so a Soldier/OHT on my belt would not work in that environment. I discovered the light weight compact Walker and now it's my work EDC.

So let's here it for the Walker/Lumberjack.

Jeep the SAK of the auto world or is it SAK the Jeep of the Knife world?

Very nice and thanks for sharing. I don't have one yet but I have the Walker on order and can't wait for its delivery ! I really like the 84/85mm format for its lightweight functionality. I intend my Walker to cover my daily hike/ trail run requurements. Will post pics when I recieve my Walker.

I inherited my father’s old Lumberjack (the Eco one IIRC). I don’t just have it to hand for a photo, but it’s included in my group shot that I took for my Knights Banner application on that thread.

I’ll arrange a decent outdoor shot of it at some point.

It was an absolute pleasure to find it amongst all the knives my brother and I gathered from his huge collection. He was a true Knife Man, and brought me up the same. The blade had a nasty 2-3mm chip out of it. An hour’s work on my waterstones from 400 up to 8000 got it, as I often say, “better than when it left the factory”.

It's hard to beat the size and weight vs. the usefulness of the Walker. I would really like to see an Alox Walker become available. That would be a great SAK for a compact survival kit.

That's the same reason it attracted me. I can carry it with a 65 or 58mm for a more complete tool set and the two SAK's are still lighter then a OHT.

First 84mm cellidor. I much prefer the feel of cellidor in the hand to alox when it's a thin (2-layer) 84mm since it's a little thicker with rounded corners and the plastic grips easier.

Not sure why but I suddenly took interest in the really basic Victorinox models, even though I pretty much insist on scissors for a carry tool. Something about this model is just so humble.



Here it is compared with some others (Compact, Walker, Cadet, Pioneer).

Very nice -- wonder which is more useful, the combo tool or the small blade. Suppose it depends on what you're doing, but I think the small blade might have the edge. (  :hatsoff:  :facepalm: )

 :hatsoff:  Thank you.......not a huge fan of the combo tool so the small blade does it for me.  I do have a Walker though and like it as well.    :cheers:

For me, clearly the combo tool. A SAK without a Phillips is useless to me.  :hatsoff:

It's great to see some interest in my favorite 84mm SAK.

For me, clearly the combo tool. A SAK without a Phillips is useless to me.  :hatsoff:


First 84mm cellidor. I much prefer the feel of cellidor in the hand to alox when it's a thin (2-layer) 84mm since it's a little thicker with rounded corners and the plastic grips easier.

Scissors and a Phillips driver are tools I use to often to not have on me along with an awl. I may sound like a broker record once again but. I pair my Walker with one of My Pocket tool chest and that gives me what I'm missing. The cap lifter SD is the same size as a standard Vic can opener SD and handles all the Phillips it well. Plus I get my scissors and awl. Pairing the two gives me a perty complete tool set.

This one just in.....an older style Elinox Lumberjack with the regular bottle opener instead of the combo tool.  Bare bones tool but I like it.  Thinking this would really be a handy tool if it had the Vic can opener instead of the bottle opener.     :cheers:

That's actually a really nice setup.  :like:

I wonder if the standard bottle opener is even better suited than the combo tool as it can really dig and pry... could be more useful outdoors (gardening, dealing with wood, etc).
