Title: The Vic Ranger club!
Post by: Poncho65 on August 18, 2016, 04:15:14 PM
I guess you guys know by now that I have a Vic Ranger :whistle: :D

It really is shaping up to my favorite SAK of all time :cheers: I have an older model with only 3 backside tools and the older camping scales but the tool selection of the Ranger is very dense :dd: I guess for a 5 layer SAK it is as about feature dense as you are gonna get and still be as pocketable as it is :like:

You all know the drill, show'em if you got'em :D

Here let me get this started with my daily pic of it :tu:

Given the members of the club so far could we amend the thread title to 'The Vic Deranged' club?  :pok:

Assuming that you meant taking pictures of all the Rangers rather than shooting them...... :rofl:

Looks kind of like a porcupine when opened up.....5 back tools on a 5 layer SAK is pretty dense.

And I resemble that deranged remark...😜

What is crazy is the Ranger can be had for a way more reasonable price than the Master Craftsman (most of the time anyways ;) ) and all you have is a corkscrew/phillips swap :o

The above statement is only from what I have observed on ebay and if I am wrong please call me on this :D

From the top the Ranger is just a Mountaineer + wood saw.
But underneath it has two extra tools, the long thin screwdriver and a tiny chisel.
I wonder why the Mountaineer has a blank space where one of these extras would fit. The chisel is kind of useless, but the long screwdriver is great, as anyone who has tried to wire a light socket will know.

Sad to say, I still haven't found a convincing reason to buy a Ranger. The pliers on the Craftsman may be tiny but they're jolly useful.

That is curious isn't it.  Any knife that has only one of the saws has no back-side tool on the saw layer.  But with both saws, they add the chisel and screwdriver.  I wonder what the reasoning is.

On the newer models they have 5 tools on the back and I wished the older ones did too :ahhh I am currently trying to track one of those down as well for EDC so I can put my older one up so I don't mess it up :whistle: :D

I like the pliers but never had a use for them with what I do and I always have a LM with me so I decided to drop some of the weight of the Swisschamp and went to the Champion and then now down to the Ranger :D By this time next year I may be down to a Solo if this keeps up :rofl:

Had couple as a kid.  Was my favorite though i did not like the "camping" engraving in it.  But it has the perfect tools i think.  Would have bought it again instead of the Harvester if they had an Alox version

I think it's because Vic wants you to buy several and have to decide which you like!  :D  If they made the one perfect SAK, sales numbers would suffer. On the flip side, having RA, I can live without all the extra backside stuff and those long uninterrupted springs on the back translate into strength and confidence, at least to me. The only broken Vic back spring I've seen in 45 years was on one of those backside tool springs. Another reason I like older Ranger/Master Craftsman models with less back side tools if I have a choice. Weird, nonsensical? Yes, yes. :D

Two eras...

I think it's because Vic wants you to buy several and have to decide which you like!  :D  If they made the one perfect SAK, sales numbers would suffer. On the flip side, having RA, I can live without all the extra backside stuff and those long uninterrupted springs on the back translate into strength and confidence, at least to me. The only broken Vic back spring I've seen in 45 years was on one of those backside tool springs. Another reason I like older Ranger/Master Craftsman models with less back side tools if I have a choice. Weird, nonsensical? Yes, yes. :D

Two eras...

Had couple as a kid.  Was my favorite though i did not like the "camping" engraving in it.  But it has the perfect tools i think.  Would have bought it again instead of the Harvester if they had an Alox version

</Gee via Tapatalk>

I have thought seriously about just getting one made in Alox or Ti :drool:

Thanks, but an internet shot. Only character knife I ever owned was a Raiders of the Lost Ark. While looking at it I popped the scissors spring out. An hour later, after the expenditure of a fair amount of blood, sweat and profanity, I threw the #$%^& in the trash.

On the subject of the 'William Tell Overture', check out the overture to 'Donna Diana', by von Reznicek. It was the theme music for 'Sgt Preston of the Northwest Mounted Police'.

Got this Ranger in this week.

Company A of the Rangers (Arizona) has also grown to two in number, although I must admit that I expected a nice Mountaineer with camping scales in the mail.  Photos didn't show the woodsaw or the number of layers so I "assumed".  Not whining though, nice price and beautiful condition.  It's older than my current one, probably somewhere between 85-91.  No hook and only 3 back tools.  It's good to see the "strength" of the Rangers growing.   :cheers:

Here is the only thing that I had to fix on the Ranger when I got it :tu: The small backside fine screwdriver was twisted and had a bit broken off of it but I straightned it then took a diamond stone and filed it down with a good profile again and it works as it should again (albeit a little shorted) :cheers:

Always glad to see them!!!  I've had to straighten a few of those as well but the most often screwed up tool on all my ebay bought knives is the corkscrew. Have no idea how the idiots can screw that up so often. If you're not smart enough to use one correctly....you're probably too dumb to own a sharp object like a knife. :facepalm:

And don't even get me started about broken blade tips on a knife with 4 screwdrivers...  :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:

I'm just watching a documentary on BBC4 about the history of the Dada art movement.  At one point in the programme, there was a series of Dada-style cut-and-paste montages representing the places where the movement started, and the Switzerland one included an animated Swiss Army Knife.  It was a Ranger!

I do like the Ranger, particularly it's tool density. I do have one, but I don't carry it. If I feel like carrying that style toolset, I carry my Original Outdoorsman instead. It doesn't have all the backspring tools, but I like the fact it switches the two blades for a serrated main blade and pruner blade. The Ranger I have got will be sacrificed to build the Mega91 at some point.

"Nacho" has the latest version of the tools and arrived in great condition.

The cross and camping logo are both the screened variety.

Though given my food choice this should have the "CRAPPING" logo.

We'll be making a trip up to the Case Factory/Museum here in the next couple weeks.  PM me if there's anything you'd like from up there.  You're right....they are gorgeous but run a little pricey!!

 :cheers: :cheers:  I'm a big Space nut so the Master Craftsman is one of my main areas of interest.  I almost never carry one. Carrying this one today because a buddy sent it to me this week (along with a bunch of other goodies).

I can understand... especially if its rareand disco'd...

Am actually am thinking of doing a ranger with minimum back tools (corkscrew/phillips and awl) and replacing small blade with the inline awl... and probably adding an inline phillips as well...

I love me some outer space too. I've been eyeing the slightly more modern (pliers-having) NASA Craftsmans for sale from Japanese sellers. But wouldn't be able to take it out of the house if I spent that much on it.

Thinking about getting a small pliers MT that has a good phillips driver to team up with my Ranger. Kind of silly backing up a Ranger with a SwissChamp.
I do have a Matterhorn, but would prefer an inline phillips that can take a lot of torque. So maybe some kind of  :multi:

Here's a "Ranger" for ya....the scale actually came off a beat up spartan (back scale is from old Huntsman, both economy style) and is going on to a good condition Tinker and will be buffed out. Thought about saving this for an actual Ranger model but...already have a good 2005 or newer Camping Ranger in my lineup.

It is amazing looking at my pics how differently that my Ranger looks in them :o In some of them it looks brand new and in the latest ones you can tell it is well used :D

Looks like you have some very nice Slippies to go with your SAKs!   :tu:

Who made the Stockman?

That is a German made Hen and Rooster :tu: I have some of them and have really been enjoying carrying them lately :cheers: :like:

Thanks, nice looking knife!   :cheers:

I have a different Hen & Rooster Stockman.

Yes, as I understand it since 2015 Victorinox has issued a version (model: 1.4763.SS) of the Master Craftsman (with the inlaid shuttle scales) only available in the Japanese market (I purchased mine through Amazon Japan). Unlike the orginal version it has the hook and wood chisel. I don't know if this issue is just a temporary one, or will be on-going. I only ordered it on 15th Dec, but it was delivered on 19th Dec (to the UK)!

My son just joined the club!  I was pleasantly surprised at how sweet a knife the Ranger is.  The lack of pliers really takes the heft from it.  It really is a pocket friendly Craftsman!

It seems way smaller than a Champion in my pocket :cheers: But with a suspension clip they both carry very well and I never even notice the Ranger in my pocket during the day :tu:

I didn't know this was a Ranger, but happily just found out it is!  It's the older one without hook and chisel.

The Ranger is an example of a SAK with a great assortment of tools that I really like and admire but don't use.  Why not?

I think some of the lyrics of an old Elvis Presley song explains my feelings:  "Her hair is soft and her eyes are Oh so blue / she's all the things a girl should be but she's not you"

I have become so attached to the Explorer and its set of tools that it has become my go-to for EDC.  I frequently carry a secondary SAK such as the CT-29 but the Explorer is the SAK that I use most often.  As much as I like the Ranger, I don't want to give up the inline Philips and magnifier.

This hasn't stopped me from enjoying my ownership of the Ranger.  In fact, it would have been a perfect companion for my many motorcycle camping trips (rode for 35 plus years).  These days, it has an honored place among my other SAKs.

Add the inline phillips and magnifyerto the Ranger, and you have an Expedition... Replace the small blade with a 93mm inline awl, then you have Poncho's ideal knife... :cheers:

I love the Explorer too, but I think if I had discovered the Ranger first, it might have been the only SAK I might have owned.  My son has one and it's darned near perfect for what I need.

Expedition?  I hadn't heard of it but checked on SAKWiki and another site and found Expedition Lite.  It had an LED light instead of a magnifier.  I would definitely get an Expedition if it had the magnifier.  Swapping the small blade for an awl would be wonderful!

Even though we all have our favorite SAKs, it is amazing how many SAKs we have in common.  For example, I look at the Swiss Champ Sunday thread and there are the usual suspects (including me).

WAIT! I forgot the blue one!!!!!!!

So it's 15.   :facepalm:

I have one.  She's on shelf queen duty since it was my first knife from my dad. Early 80s if I remember right. (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170210/bf424d6bb155e2e2f04843e76267478e.jpg)

I accidentally got a Ranger off Ebay... I was certain I would be outbid but it never happened.

I'm not over the moon about it, cos I prefer my Craftsman and Mountaineer. It'll probably go on ebay again... I find it very hard to get excited about anything in red plastic scales these days.

Nothing like the feeling of relief when you are outbid on an item you really didn't want :D I try not to do it but I am sure that most of us do it from time to time :facepalm: Swap out the scales to something different like wood :shrug: Might be a fun project ;)

Actually, it wasn't entirely clear from the pictures what it would be. I was one of those "You can see it from the front and the front only, and I'm not opening the blades for you or anyone else!" kind of deals.
I was hoping it would be one of those weird Marlboros that you see on ebay America but never in a million years here in Europe. Some of them are awesome!

I think I have two Rangers now.
This first one I was sent as a freebie from a seller on eBay who I bought quite a few SAKs from.  The original scales were rough, so I swapped out these green ones from another SAK I have.

My other Ranger is in original box and a shelf queen at this time.

Those old style Camping scales look great in my opinion.  I don't blame you at all for staying original.
I didn't mind removing the green scales from another knife I had because the guy said he had put them on there himself, so I felt as though I didn't disturb an original knife in removing them for the Ranger.

It is nice keeping one as original as possible :tu: When I bought this Ranger I knew that the scales were older and special but the first one I bought I was buying just because it was a Ranger ::) It has the same scales but it is in way better shape and stays in a drawer :D

Hi Poncho,
I thought I'd add this older one to your thread.  Model 236maU, jazzbass said it's an early 1960's Ranger.
Here it is next to my other one, old meets new:

Yes that should have made there day brighter IMO :D :like: :like:

Way to spread the Ranger love FB :tu:
New owner is happy!  I just put my green scales on my new-to-me one, so it's a win-win!

Glad to hear everyone is happy with a Ranger :D :tu: :like:

Did some more digging. The Monitor was a BAR with a pistol grip and shortened barrel. Some sources say it was full auto; others that it was semi auto only. May have depended on the agency buying it.

That Monitor of Hamer's is probably the most famous one in existence.  A few years back, I had the pleasure of cracking a magazine full off from an original BAR at a WWII event.  An old friend, long gone, was a BAR gunner in the Army and loved it (except lugging it!). 
 
Great pic CS....I love working pics!   When I was a boy I used to help an old family friend in his masonry business.  Hard work but an honest day's work!

That Monitor of Hamer's is probably the most famous one in existence.  A few years back, I had the pleasure of cracking a magazine full off from an original BAR at a WWII event.  An old friend, long gone, was a BAR gunner in the Army and loved it (except lugging it!). 
 
Great pic CS....I love working pics!   When I was a boy I used to help an old family friend in his masonry business.  Hard work but an honest day's work!

 
love
Did some more digging. The Monitor was a BAR with a pistol grip and shortened barrel. Some sources say it was full auto; others that it was semi auto only. May have depended on the agency buying it.

Wow!!!

I've hefted a BAR (heavy) but never had the chance to shoot one. Sounds like a fun afternoon!   :tu:

Think that's Poncho's pic you're refering to.

I join the club with not one, but two ranger! The older one appeared for the first time in the thread dedicated to "sak and cat". Now is arrived also the second I have bought. Either are by second hand, the older have blade very consumed, but still sharp, and other tool are not used too much. I will put it in the car, ready to be useful if is needed.
The other is in very good shape.

Old Ranger in for surgery.
Victoria tang stamp, clip point sml blade, +PAT opener, wire stripper cap lifter, bail, metal tip tweezers... all the good stuff.

(https://c1.staticflickr.com/4/3939/32920955674_ebab1ecb36_b.jpg)


The finished product with a present-day model.

(https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4171/34294363091_8cf62340b8_h.jpg)

Yes I know there is a chip in the blade but it would take too much to blend it out. I'm trying to think of it as a single serration.
No it didn't come from the bail, the blade of this knife was snapped off and this one came from an old Fisherman which didn't have a bail and it doesn't line up anyway and the bail is brass which is too soft to ding the blade unlike the steel bail on a SI.

Before I came down with a bad case of "Gotta have a magnifier", I bought a Ranger because of its great assortment of tools.  Wood saws are a nice to have but I am very partial to metal files/saws.  My ranger spends all of its time in storage and has been eclipsed by my collection of Swiss Champs.

It started life as a Champion and I removed the fish scaler and Hiraethus kindly sent me an inline awl (and also the scales) and the rest is history  :salute: It was my first mod and wasn't to terribly hard to do :tu:

I love that mod!!!  I also read your reply in a subsequent post that you did the mod--impressive!

The inline awl is my favorite.  I think that the other would do the job just fine but I never give it a chance because every time I need an awl, I grab one of the alox Pioneer models.  This morning, I was getting ready to leave to take my wife to a doctor's appointment and was wearing cargo shorts for the first time since the weather has warmed up.  I didn't notice that the belt was too loose until we were ready to go out the door so I grabbed my Harvester and less than a minute later I had another belt notch.  You had a great idea in going with the inline awl!

Depeding on the scratches... The 108mm Solo, I started with 240 and work all the way up to 2000...

Medium to light, I start with 600 or 800... sanding one way from tang to tip... moving on the next grit once sratches from previous grit is gone...

From 1000 up, I wet sand...

Amici,
I am now a member of the club! :climber:

 Recently, I picked up a late 70's or early 80's Ranger that only has the awl, fine screwdriver, and the grooved corkscrew on the backside. After a thorough cleaning and sharpening followed by a set of new scales, here you go!

Cheers,
Serge

:mail:  Received this "old Ranger" today, good condition , good snap on all the blades, Elinox tang marking and old style metal saw, 5 turn grooved corkscrew.  Vic must have had a problem sharpening though, small blade has a curve/hook and large blade has a whole bunch of little teeth.  Still, a very nice knife so I think I will keep it.  😜😜😜   :rofl:

I've been looking quite some time for this "old Ranger"!!!      :drool:

Thanks SG, wondered who would be the 1st to pick up on my "old Ranger".  Figured you were a good bet.  😛  This OO is so much like an older Ranger that I thought it would be a good place to post it.  It will be interesting dating this one.

Another 5 layer to carry........... :cheers:

You bet I saw it!!!! And it looks to be in exceptional shape too....much nicer than my old "rode hard and put up wet" example!  :rofl:  Congrats on the snag!!!! :cheers:

Thanks SG, it is in very nice shape.  I get the impression that this was someone's tackle box knife.  Even had an old brass swivel with clip attached to the key ring.  Scales were a little scuffed, not like pocket carry but they cleaned right up.  Only things used seem to be the two blades and even those not much.  It will get some pocket carry now........😛     :cheers:

Yeah, possibly. It might be better as one of those "make it up as you go" kind of projects.  :D
All I know for certain is that I want the serrated blade, pruner, scissors, cybertool, and metal file. Undecided on saw and pliers, or which backspring tool would pair best with the file,

Carried a relative of the Ranger today... A Master Craftsman made from left over parts...

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170715/f13487daa0401e82e2a16f2e44333520.jpg)

I had to build this one just the get it off my mind as I initially was debating either to build this or the Master Ranger.. now I built both...

It's not final though as some day it will get disassembled again to make way for an inline awl and remove the small blade... some Ti scales, brass liners and  Torx screws... at least that's the plan... will enjoy this baby in the meantime...

Poncho, I had to go back aways to see the Ranger with camping logo that you used to feature in your posts on this topic. There must have been some subliminal suggestion in your posts because this look grew on me to the point where I just had to get a camping logo Ranger for myself. 

Now, you are featuring a Ranger mod with a magnifier.  I saw someone else post a similar mod some time ago that also featured an inline awl. I think it is a useful tool that I would love to have but it's no longer a Ranger. Bring the camping logo Ranger back buddy!!!

If you would read more in the matter you would find it is my mod the Master Ranger :pok: It is modeled after the Ranger with the addition of the the Phillips mag layer and an in-line awl ;) Plus I figured since this is my thread I can put what I would like :whistle:

Now, you are featuring a Ranger mod with a magnifier.  I saw someone else post a similar mod some time ago that also featured an inline awl. I think it is a useful tool that I would love to have but it's no longer a Ranger. Bring the camping logo Ranger back buddy!!!

Jim

P.S., Wonderful photos!!!

Thanks for the kind words Jim :salute: I am quite happy with my mod though and have carried it everyday since i made it with the exception of challenges where I don't :salute: Also mine has an inline awl :cheers:

I would love to see you guys post some pics of Rangers in here as well :tu: Also since there is no model like my mod I dubbed it the Master Ranger and that is why I post it in here :cheers:

That's right! I forgot about your Master Ranger. When you first mentioned it, I was thinking "Where do I buy one?"

Jim

I wished I could have only added the inline Phillips and not the mag glass (using the double openers across from the Phillips) but it wasn't possible so I just put the whole layer in :cheers:  It would have made it much closer to the Ranger than this one but I still really love this SAK and am very happy to have made it :tu: I may get my old camping scale Ranger out next month and get some pics of it :salute: :like:

For me, the magnifier is my major weakness.  If a SAK has a mag, I probably have to have it! The mag is one of compelling features of your Master Ranger. The inline awl is another feature that I find hard to resist and probably my most used Alox tool.

I was happy with my one Ranger purchase until Poncho teased us (quite some time ago) with post after post featuring his Camping Logo Ranger. Finally, I just had to get one for myself.  Pictured below is my new old stock in box Camping Logo Ranger together with my other Ranger with the standard red scales.

So, what do you call a Ranger with pliers?

Answer: a Handyman

Poncho has a mod he calls the Master Ranger and I wish Victorinox added that tool set to its offerings. Poncho's mod adds an inline philips driver, magnifier and inline awl to the Ranger. It could be a Swiss Champ if you swapped the inline awl for the fish scaler. What if all you wanted to do was add pliers to the Ranger? Victorinox has that model--it's called a Handyman!

Pictured below is a new in box, old stock Handyman together with a standard Ranger...

Thanks! I do have a number of vintage boxes but no where near the amount of FolderBeholder. She had an impressive inventory of NIB SAKs from old stock. The Craftsman is a cousin of the Handyman (like Tinker and Spartan) in that the Craftsman has the Philips driver in place of the corkscrew.

Folder beholder does have some drool-worthy stuff!

Here's the old ones I've held on to...  just sold a NIB 70's economy Camper and kind of regret it.... but the 60's Elinox Camper helps me deal with the loss.  :D

Included my one and only Ranger as to not completely derail the thread...

I am looking for a Ranger but don't want to buy new. Will trade and will puchase a good tool version. Scale condition is not paramount, I will most likely recsale in a Plus format.  If you have a good Ranger tool set, send me a note.  Scratches and a little real use wear is not an issue but the body must have good snap throughout the tool set.  No missing or broken tools or springs. Thx

Ranger says, "Yes, you're bigger, but it's just those silly pliers!" Awesome pair. That box is a nice touch. Damn, I'm really bad at holding onto boxes.

I've got a used one on the way, condition good but specifics unknown. I figure once I give it a good cleaning and sharpening, I can swap out the scales for hunter green that are also on the way.  (If I'm not satisfied with how clean the joints are, I figure during the scale swap I can use liberal amounts of rubbing alcohol without worry.)

Mine showed up today!  For being used, it's in very, *very* good condition.  Some dents and dings on the scales, the front one is a little loose, but otherwise is great, no wear on blades or tools.  I'm guessing by the stamps and pinned scissors and hook, it's post-'91, pre-'05.

Would an original outdoorsman be welcome in this company?
It is a proto-ranger of sorts, after all.  :think:

There should be a Ranger challenge badge Poncho.... I'd love to try it!!  :dd:

I might even break out one of my Camping logo ones for it :think: We might try it around the first or 2nd month of the new year :tu: Or perhaps a middleman type badge for 4-6 layer SAKs :o :cheers:

Minimalist, Midlman, Stack.
1-2, 3-6, 7+.
Kinda seems unbalanced from a purely numerical point of view?  :think:

Imagine:

I think the three layer could be considered as minimalist, depending on the tools. 

The Pioneer and Farmer would count in my mind, tho the Pioneer X or Super Tinker might not, while the Climber and Camper are allowed, so :dunno: 

Certainly, my +B Yeoman seems like a mixed-up middle ground,  with scissors and magnifying lens,  but then it lacks an awl and pen blade and has only one regular and one Phillips driver (not counting the eyeglass driver), compared with the three sizes of drivers on the Ranger and that plus a Phillips on the Master Craftsman.

1-2 layers: Minimalist
3-4: Scout
5-6: Layer Cake
7-8: Stack

Cybertool S is three layers, but goes in Stack. Let's ignore that for now.

This has got me thinking... The Mini Pabsman is three layers, but I bet that more than one person here would say that it's not very useful by itself.  :think:
(Don't worry, I won't be insulted.  :rofl: )
Compared to say.... a Compact.
