Title: Spartan Saturday!
Post by: kirk13 on September 19, 2015, 01:21:51 AM
I'm thinking that the humble Spartan maybe doesn't get the love it deserves. So,from now on,til I get bored,or change my mind,I'm going to carry a Spartan every Saturday.

Who's with me?

Remember

I'd be happy to carry a Tourist tomorrow, but there's no way I'm committing to any weekly routines. Life is about variety and adventure, and pocket carry should reflect that. There's enough restrictions in life without me adding new ones  :D

I carry a Pioneer every day, if that counts as a sort of Spartan? :) I tend to see it as my minimum staple, rather than a restriction though.

I don't own a Spartan, I prefer the Camper model for better girth.  :-[

I started out carrying a Spartan as my first SAK many moons ago. However I rapidly discovered that a scissors was one of my most-used tools, and the Spartan vanished from the carry line-up. Instead I carry a Traveler, Super Tinker, or Huntsman; in about that order of popularity.

( Gun shows, what a great country!)

Bumblebee spartan plus has black scales on reverse. That will be Saturday carry.  Along with a tiny set of pliers. 

The other one has deep grooves in the corkscrew and was ridicuously filthy when I got it with brown goop and animal fur everywhere including under the scales

I don't have a Spartan.

But I do have an ugly old tomato red Elinox Standard (Spartan, without T&T)

Like the others, I'm not sure I want to go without scissors, esp. every Saturday, when I typically need an MT the most.

In answer to your original question, I don't have a Spartan but may be the recipient of a Tourist soon. Does that count? If so, I'll gladly do Spartan Saturday (Spaturday?)

If Victorinox made a Spartan in 84mm i would be all over them, as it is i EDC a small Tinker and have reached the conclusion that a corkscrew has more use than the #2 Phillips screwdriver on the back of the Tinker, after all the point on the can opener will do the job and it is in line.

I carry a Spartan most of the time anyway, so setting some weekly routine for that wouldn't make much sense. Not a lot of people like the Spartan, but there are a few of us. :) I'm with 50ft-trad on the philosophical ramifications of variety in EDC.  :tu:

I like the sound of Spartan Saturday, though.  :cheers:

I carry a Tourist a couple days a week. Find it easier on the pocket than a Spartan. If I carry a 91mm it's usually a Climber.

I'm surprised by just how many folks don't have a Spartan.  That said I didn't have one for quite a while myself so perhaps I should hold judgment. :D  Oddly this rather coincides with me thinking I'd not had my yellow Spartan out for a long time.  Need to change that I think.

I have a bunch but they are all packed away in tubs for fire season. I'll try to snag one of mine to carry next Sat.

I just redid all my knife storage because the wildfires have already started in the surrounding counties.

Ok, I'm set. Found one in that pile that came in last week...wood, almost unused! I'll clean it up and tote it next Sat!!

A few new ones and some older Spartans.

Is that a Richard Petty Spartan in the first row in the top pic?

Excuse my slow response but we've been out of town for several weeks.

It is a Richard Petty Spartan.It was on ebay for $25.00 and I offered the seller $20.00 and they accepted my offer.

Just a little family game shoot in Suffolk. It's a good way of encouraging interest and responsible behaviour amongst keen young 'uns. Fortunately the young lady I was mentoring knew what she was doing and was quite safe. Only one lad fell over in the stream and I had a fine morning teasing the shoot captain. I'm sure he'll pay me back. I wasn't called upon to whittle a beaters stick but the Soldier was ready and able  :D

I'm off for a morning in the woods. Given my track record with Spartan Saturday I have made a special effort and obtained something nice and shiny in black. That said I'll be taking my Grizzly Bear along for most of the morning though I'm hoping for more pheasants than grizzlies (pretty confident about the absence of grizzlies, less confident about the former!). The new shiny can help with breakfast arrangements.

That Picknicker seen some hard use,and not a lot of love. It's well known that I'm not a fan of the 111 family,and it started here. Oddly enough,it's not there was anything wrong with it,it just wasn't the 91mm I know and love.

In its service life,the tip of the blade got chipped(not me,one of the muppets that worked for me in Watford) and somewhere along the line,and I really don't know where, the liner on the opener side got bent

I've tried trading it off a few times too. I realised a while back that it deserves an honoured place in my permanent collection, so it got properly resharpend,cleaned and lubed

I bought these three Saturday for under $10 delivered. One goes in my collection the other two get put up for when the next two Grandchildren are old enough.

As SAK collectors we should remember that without the Officers knife we may all have to carry Letterman's. :facepalm:

Just to prove I did more than just remember here's my Silvertech Spartan ready for a wet day in the field. After some indecision I figured this would stand out best on a ploughed field if I lost it. I didn't but it reminded me I must teach the dog to retrieve it. If I get a dog ...  :shrug:

Still going with the Sportsman. I had the Spartan in my hand this morning, almost took it. But the Sportsman already had the pocket clip attached so I took it instead.

Must remember this to begin carrying the Spartan. I got it new plus scales recently. This as made me wonder...

I wasn't expecting to be out in the field yesterday but a late phone call on Friday night  brought an offer I couldn't refuse and a chance to trial my wellyfix. So, a flask of coffee, a hat and a jelly blue Spartan and I was good to go. Kirky woz right though. One damp sock and it was clear my boots were on the smurf list  :surrender:

As I'm new here, and new to this "avocation", I don't have many different SAKs. I don't have many at all as compared to most of you guys/gals. I have been carrying for a long time, and thru different periods of my life.  But as I have been doing my "research" or reading here, to learn more about the modding, and as I looked at the Swiss Knife Valley, and the "root" site in Schwyz, I saw the assembly tooling for the manufacture of the Spartan. et al.  Searching further, I found the pix of Spartan assembly at the Museum, and the U-tube videos of Spartan Assembly in The American Mall, I think, and at the 2011 Shot Show. Verrrrrrry interesting!! I decided right there and then, that I wanted my own Spartan, built in Schwyz. Well, that's an expensive trip, I can't do it right now, and it won't be my first "build". But I will settle for building one, some day, here in the US, on the jig. And if I get rich---who knows! Anyhow, If I ever get to do that, I might like to add my own alox scales, however. Maybe a few other changes, if possible. Anyhow. so this Christmas, this Saturday, and this thread, will remind me of that goal! Thank you guys,Happy Spartan Saturday, and  Merry Christmas!

As I looked very close at the "pins" used, I noticed that they are just  brass nails, made by the millions on a "cold heading" automated machine. Very common here in the US. They are indigenous to our Industrial base, here. I have stood next to the deafaning roar of these machines a few times. This is the first step in the manufacture of screw and bolt fasteners. This must be some of  the "automated tooling" that Mr. Elsener's Dad installed in his factory in the "60s, as listed as a "first" in their historical cronology.

Sooooo, all you hot modders, why don't you all have a run of these "pins" made for yourselves. It would be a good little product for this site to support itself thru the EDC Source sales. so let's all network together and get a run of these made!!  Spread them around among yourselves. As for the bushings, I'm still thinking about that!!The sale of those two items, could probably contribute greatly to this site. Buy 'em  for a penny apiece, and sell a 3-pair set for $$$$whatever. You could cold head the back spring pins, also. From what I read, the different knife sizes have different pin and bushing sizes, this can all be done. Then we could have a "bin" of the critical modder parts!!  The trick for "economy" or the economy of scale, would be to find someone somewhere, (possibly even @ the Vic factory) Hint, Hint  :pok:, who already has existing tooling, and skip or minimize the small tooling costs. Maybe one of you out there is already in the business, or next to the business. I have lost  my contacts in this by now. Merry Christmas!!

But to take this one step further......And to facillitate a modular type knife.....

I've noticed that there is (personal?)variation in the "pin" and "bushing" parts, among the top modders. I do not have a handle on this yet. Info is mum, I think. Anyhow, here's what I'd like to see: Pivot barrels,  threaded completely thru the inside, also with other threads just on the ends, outside.  Using the outside end threads, to hold the SAK layers together. with  threaded bushings as "nuts".  Make these threaded bushings or "nuts", to the same, present, stock, smooth outside dimensions, and with 2 outside flats for "wrench" purchase. The two bushings, on the outside of the pivot barrel, would hold the knife layers together. The end  inside threads of the pivot bushing. would hold the alox scales on, with torx screws. This  is what I prefer. (The material is variable) Or, the outside of the bushing nuts, which would be smooth like the original bushings, would be able to accept the original cellidor or nylon scales, exactly as they are, in a stock SAK. No one would know, with a cursory look,  in this last configuration, if the SAK was modded or stock, without taking the scales off. I could draw this easily. Or take a picture. I have a picture, which I am trying to describe. I see fasteners almost like these, just on the knife kits sites, with only about 30 minutes of research. What I want, may already exist.  I suppose the knife kit sites would easily understand this, and make them for SAKs across the board.   Merry Christmas!

I might also like to see the dia of the pivots increased. but that would require drilling of all the SAK layers. This could easily be done, drilling out one larger thru hole, thru an assembled knife (minus scales), with 2 stock pins still installed and holding the knife layers together. Can you imagine a 2.5mm-4mm reamer? In other words, these "new" type threaded pivot barrels, and threaded bushing nuts, could be installed, without taking the knife layers apart! And from there, those of us that wanted to, could go Modular!! Or Ballistic!!      :climber:

As I said previously, Brake for commas, it's easier to read and understand. Or, as suggested, just wait for the pix!

Also, my last extended "rant" or diatribe, or description,  on SAK clips, ended the next day, with two different executions of SAK pocket clips.(I couldn't wait for my Spyderco clips.). They are unlike what I alluded to, and novel and unique, as far as my research shows. Both are totally functional, one is less than aesthetic. I am now putting them thru Will's "pre-use abuse".  I am much less than fluent with pix on computers, than I am with words, IMHO! I do know, that "one pic, is worth a thousand words", and I would add that "One 'DO' is worth an infinite amount of pix and words." And, I like these clips so well, that I hesitate to send them into public domain. I will show them in person. You all may think that I am a nubie, and that I have no experience here, and that I am full  of feces, but I am not new to design, or to new product development. The SAK is just another "vehicle' for my 'fertile' mind. Or maybe it's my 'fecal' mind!?!     :o
                                                   Happy Hollidays!     Thanx    Oclip      :salute:

Trying out the SE Spartan  for a test drive

To be fair it's a SwissTool mod so it's not 100% Vic but nice nonetheless

It's Saturday isn't it? Oooh. I'm gonna face the same moral Saturday dilemma as last week. And the week before. My black Swisschamp looks like an expectant puppy and never mind my new Huntsman which might actually be handy out in the field. Oh no, all that would be weakness. No. I must think Spartan.

At this rate I'm going to end up loaded down with cutlery and clanking my way round the fen ... :ahhh

What Spydie is that?

Its called the Chokwe and is one of the ethnic inspired knives. Named after a tribe in N-Angola/Congo that have traditionally used knives of this shape.
Its a Ti frame lock in S30V, nothing primitive about it.

Yeah...I agree.  I remember sitting in Reston, VA bar for dinner in the mid-90's, and a guy telling us that he was selling ad space on the internet for a start-up.  We looked at him like he was nuts...little did we know at the time!   :ahhh    :ahhh

At the time, Netscape (one of my customers) was at the top of the heap waiting for the 800lb gorilla (ie, Microsoft or AOL) to sit on them...which happened.

Funny how time tells us the story.  It's my favorite coffee cup, so I still use it, though I'm deeply immersed in the 2016 e-world.

And the Spartan in this picture, sits in my home-office desk drawer...used as needed...in this case to open a package containing my latest eBay purchase.

The Sportsman is a great knife. I have one as well in EcoLine scales. This knives lived in my desk drawer at work for about ten years and it came in handy rather frequently.

But I retired it several years ago. It go replaced by a Classic. Its main duty was removing staples from papers. But the SD on a Classic also works fine on this.

Was just thinking how nice it would look with scrollwork engraving like they do on guns, but the stainless steel is probably too hard for hand engraving.  :)

I think it is a "Hostel" emblem. I didn't recognize it when I bought it, but I found the same logo on a site Google steered me to that was about hostels in Europe. If someone knows better, I'd love to hear more...

Today's Spartan that was once a Tinker, swapping its Phillips with a Waiter's corkscrew (to also create an Apprentice). Put black scales on it to replace badly scarred red ones.

Crikey... now I'm trying to figure out just how they ended up doing scales on a Spartan. Perhaps the marketing budget wouldn't stretch to freebie lightsabers ? :think:

I hope that your knife will not become fluorescent !

Two-tone models (Gold/Silver) are very hard to find, they are no longer manufactured, except 2 or 3...

I prefer the engravings of historical events of Switzerland or Swiss folk scenes, but the other engravings are also very beautiful.  It depends on what you like...

And the man who was admiring them.....moi!   :hatsoff:

Robert MOIX is a Swiss citizen who lives in the Canton of Wallis, and he's my friend.
He's first a collector of Soldiers knife of the Swiss Army, but he owns also lot of "special swiss knives" like carved Swiss knives or Swiss knives made for foreign armies or strange knives made by Victorinox or Wenger.

The SPARTAN -"PONTIFICAL SWISS GUARD OF THE VATICAN" is the last knife of this Army (special corps of the Swiss Army), but I know other former models also exist.

The series of "CARVED SPARTAN" : knives are made by Victorinox, but the scales are produced by an old Swiss Craftsman in a Art Foundry. First he worked for several watch industries, he produced lot of pocket watch cases like this one :

(http://i35.servimg.com/u/f35/12/24/75/57/sans_t11.jpg)

Next, he wanted to produce scales for Wenger, but it was not possible (I don't know why), so he made scales for Victorinox...

This is the history I know, I have no more details.

Strictly speaking yes, that was the name back then. Notice no T&T, but Spartan is the general term most folks use to cover this pattern.

The early ones did not, but had a bail when others of the era did not. There's some pics on the wiki of the actual catalog.  :)

It is. Remarkably detailed about all of the members of the 1920's expedition and their formative experiences in WW1. In one sense heavy going but really does put into perspective their achievements at and beyond the limits.

 With help from Lowtech on knife, and WoodMan's laser cut walnut scales, I sent this off to a half-sister that I've not seen since I was a teenager. Reconnected with my 3 half-sisters (kind of) through an obituary of biological mother. Sent a request to the cemetary to give my contact data to the surviving daughters. Soon had reconnected with them on Facebook. Saw one about a year later, she came down to see me so gave her my Juice XE6 that I won from a Leatherman Halloween Pumpkin contest.

  So when I got this Spartan donation from Lowtech, and idea formed. WoodMan came to the rescue, and it went back east to that biker half-sister of mine.

Jelly Red Spartan yesterday and a fascinating read about Everest and Mallory

Looks like a great book!

It is. Remarkably detailed about all of the members of the 1920's expedition and their formative experiences in WW1. In one sense heavy going but really does put into perspective their achievements at and beyond the limits.

Sounds really interesting!!!!  :cheers:

Really great pix of beautiful carries guys!

Had storms last night and hoping they stay non severe today. The cold front that came in yesterday afternoon kicked off storms with 50 mph winds and sparked 4-5 grassfires with lightning strikes. We got 1 3/4" inches in a couple of hours.

Cautiously optimistic with the Sportsman today.

Nice pic James and good luck on the Bay Spartan!

Thanks and here it is, delivered today. Nothing crazy. It's just Gumby green and I like the color. Tools are clean and new (minor nick in blade shouldn't take to much to remove), gleaming corkscrew. But scales could stand a buff.

Some years ago, my youngest brother was in charge of PR at a company specialized in the breeding of grass and other seeds.

One day, the local newspaper printed an article about a scientific breakthrough they'd achieved: together with a Japanese gene technology firm they had developed a new kind of grass that was entirely white. This meant the end of chalk lines on sports fields. People were invited to come and have a look and sure enough, it drew a lot of attention. Unfortunately there wasn't a single white stalk to be seen. It was April Fool's Day, of course.

Anyhow, my brother was a great source of advertising Spartans at the time. Here they are, together with my other Spartans.

They are by one company. Cebeco was its name when my brother started, Nutriseed is one of their product ranges. In 2003, the Danish company DLF took over and the name changed to InnoSeeds. The InnoSeeds logo was designed by my brother. The company moved away from its home in Vlijmen shortly after and my brother found another job. In 2015, InnoSeeds was renamed DLF.

To be honest most days of the week I don't need more than a Classic so I find Spartan Saturday quite frustrating at times. Especially when I really feel I ought to carry a good honest Climber more often. This whole conscience thing eh ? Tut .... :facepalm:

It is not a bright light....it is a , works and works in a pinch type light, IMPO :think: :tu:

Ok. That's enough confessional. The Huntsman came in handy at lunch to spread game pate on a few cream crackers. Strictly I didn't need the saw for that and a Spartan would've done admirably but there was a good conversation about pocket knives comparing with a friends Laguiole.

Picnic aside it's been a murky old day round here so the Hudsons Bay Company is going to brighten my evening together with some Conan Doyle.

Some nice ones.   I really need to get on the ball and buy one.  I'm  eyeing a white one with advertising for the General Dynamics TOW missile, with a TOW missile printed as the shield.

Post by: NorCalJim on January 22, 2017, 01:38:03 AM
I picked up a Spartan on the secondary market that was advertised in excellent condition.  Unfortunately, the seller overlooked the tiny bend on the tip of the small blade.  My first SAK purchase was a Tinker followed by a Super Tinker since I preferred the philips driver to the cork screw.  Eventually, I discovered the Explorer and made friends with the cork screw (not hard to do with an inline Philips driver).  I picked up the Spartan because I thought that I should have a sample of the three key 91mm 2 layer base models (Spartan, Tinker & Compact).

With the bent small knife tip, Mr. Spartan has volunteered to pry off scales needing replacement in perpetuity! 

Spartan Saturday seemed like the perfect time to announce this new honor.   :)

Heck yeah, works even better on the red ones I think.  I've been trying my hand at sanding down and refinishing some of my more loved SAKs, with pretty good results.  I think I need another grade of sandpaper or two between 600  and 1500 to get out those fine scratches, at any rate, the headlight stuff does a good job of just giving it a nice shine with very little effort.   :cheers:

I started out my SAK journey with a two-layer Wenger in the eighties. That was a constant companion for many years. Then I discovered the Victorinox small Tinker, I got that, and felt it was a huge improvement. Small blade instead of nail file, no gimmicky locking screwdriver (which over the years will be filled with gunk and thus stop working reliably as an actual lock), an extra screwdriver in the can opener, no useless corkscrew. I was happy, but didn't know I was on my way down the rabbit hole. Some time later, I dropped my Tinker on a concrete floor, damaging the Cellidor. So I started shopping around for replacement scales. I think that was the breaking point where I started actually collecting SAKs. I replaced the scales on the Tinker, but now I had started buying knives from specialist stores.

I started carrying many different kinds of SAKs. I am not a true minimalist, but I like avoiding stuff I rarely use. I tried the Bantan and Waiter, but didn't like the way the combo tool feels when using the blade. I tried the Recruit, but didn't like the sound (yes, really) of the hollow scales when there is a pin less. I had started favoring the corkscrew as I grew older, since I grew disenchanted with the short, back-mounted Philips, so the Tourist was next, but the 6 extra mm of the Spartan makes it feel very much more comfortable in my hand. I have also tried larger knives, but the Spartan has everything I really want in an EDC. I have carried alox, but I start missing the tweezers and the small blade.The small blade is the single most used tool on any of my SAKs. With the Pocket Pal/Secretary/Sentry/etc family of 84 mm, I miss out on tweezers again and anything to poke and pry with.  So there you are. About three decades and a triple digit number of SAKs later, and I have moved from a Wenger Commander (I think) to a Victorinox Spartan. I have told this story before, but I find it an enjoyable example of TS Eliot's poem of discovering the world only to understand your origins. ;)

No, I'm not a member of the SAKMC, expecially since I want to rotate between my Spartans too. When I travel, I usually opt for a knife with a few tools extra too (or pair a Spartan with something else, like a Classic).

Great story Steinar!  You're right about that journey.  The minimalist challenge I'm doing right now has confirmed what I knew:  I really only use three tools consistently, the small blade, can opener/screwdriver and the cap lifter/screwdriver.  I'd say the awl takes fourth place.  As in other challenges, I find I don't even miss the scissors.  If I didn't love the SI so much I'd probably join the SAKMC!

It's the tales why people carry their SAKs that do tell you a few worthwhile truths. I like Spartan Saturday for the very reason I couldn't resist variety but it forces me to take things back to basics once a week .... Swisschamp Sunday is almost an overload in compensation !

+1 to this. It's the one thing that nags me about Spartan Saturday. But I cope and it's proves what a great and versatile tool the Spartan is. Mind you a bit like the prodigal son it's great to pick up a Climber and know you've got scissors again.   :clap:

Good idea Barry - but Sunday is a pretty good day to EDC a Swisschamp and, for me, use it ... it'd have a dull old time most weekdays in my office !

So, to help bring you smoothly from one simple toolset to a complex one without tripping out your excitement fuses  .... what would that ideal transition SAK be ?  :think:

Yes, spanning Victoria to Elizabeth II (IIRC) from across the British Comonwealth (incl., Australia, Canada, India and lots of smaller countries from the Caribbean/Africa.   I used to be an avid collector concentrating mostly on Pre Decimal coinage. Nothing super rare but a pretty good coverage of the Commonwealth. I love the designs and themes. I'll try to work some pennies into next Saturday's pic (if I don't forget).

(http://i833.photobucket.com/albums/zz256/SAKGuy/QE2%202-25-17_zpsh8wwh0pb.jpg)

Very Respectable Robert. You could do with a Sovereign by the look of that loose change  :salute:

Thanks Bill I would love to add one to the collection but they are a little pricey.  :D

Too true. Got any old pennies in there ?

Yes, spanning Victoria to Elizabeth II (IIRC) from across the British Comonwealth (incl., Australia, Canada, India and lots of smaller countries from the Caribbean/Africa.   I used to be an avid collector concentrating mostly on Pre Decimal coinage. Nothing super rare but a pretty good coverage of the Commonwealth. I love the designs and themes. I'll try to work some pennies into next Saturday's pic (if I don't forget).

Top plan that. I'll see what I can do too. I don't collect but I've a pot of old pennies etc for family games  :cheers:
