SAK's - Corkscrew or Phillips?
« on: June 26, 2009, 07:17:25 PM »
In the spirit of starting polls, I thought I'd start this one.  :D

So, which do you prefer?  For me a SAK just has to have a corkscrew (not including glorious Alox  :drool:).  I hardly ever need one, but cellidor SAK's just scream corkscrew to me and I always have a phillips on my multitool.

I'm back!!

Can't say I have a preference, depends if in going to work when I take a philips, or out for the day which would be a corkscrew.

So I suppose I should prefer the corkscrew as I would prefer to ahve a day out than a day at work   ;)

Much as I do like the Phillips, it has to be a corkscrew for me.  There is nothing rational about this, I'm slightly more likely to require the screwdriver than the corkscrew, but SAKs should have corkscrews.  On that note there is a nice bottle of Pinot Grigio that needs some attention.  :D



I bet it has a screw cap.  :'(

The corkscrew, just to have a place to put my eyeglass screwdriver.

The only wine I drink is a peach wine from a local winery and it's a screw on tap so I have no use for a corkscrew. I highly prefer the Phillips.

I voted corkscrew cos it's a classic as Ben said. A Phillips would be more useful, but I can get by with the combi tool :sak:

Corkscrew all the way! I only have use for inline phillips as I'm usually dealing with screws in tight places.

Well, my Champion has both....

However, if I EDC a smaller one, I do not drink, so no need for the corkscrw, but I am always "Tinker"ing with things.....so Phillips for me!!!

I think it is an American thing....why they make the Handyman (Craftsman with corkscrew in lieu of phillips) is beyond me.

Corkscrew to hold the mini-driver.

I went with Phillips too.  I wait for the time when I get to use the cork screw, but honestly, it almost never happens.  I use a Phillips prolly 10:1 over the corkscrew.

Corkscrew clearly. The can opener handles Phillips perfectly well and what will you look like trying to open a bottle of wine for that gorgeous chick with your Phillips?

:cheers: Humm. there appears to be no suitable wine-bottle-opening emoticon.

The Philips is far better IMO... I don't like using the can opener as a philips driver.

The question is about backspring tools though, so unless you have some wicked mods, I doubt you have them both on there.  :D

I do agree though, both is nice, but when carried with a MT it's pretty pointless added bulk IMO.

The corkscrew, for the eyeglass screwdriver, plus the inline screwdriver and can opener work fine

Whoops; I didn't actually read the poll.  :-[

Umm, I'll have to go with corkscrew, then, simply because a phillips can be inline, or the can opener can be used on them.

Corkscrew for me. Like skydan says there is a phillips on the can opener and I find this more useful than one on the back as it's inline. And I just don't feel prepared without a corkscrew.

Prone to daydreaming.

I don't mind either, but I think my preference would be for the corkscrew for untying knots, and for the wicked little screwdriver :)

Sums up my thoughts exactly.  The mini screwdriver is great, and can be used as a mini pokey-thing if needed (it scrapes the lint from the layers of my SAK quite nicely :D).  The corkscrew does help with knots, and I've used it loads for its intended purpose as well.

I think Spork is the only person to have ever done that but I don't think he bothered to peen the resulting monster as it was a bit unweildy.

Corkscrew is good for holding the mini screwdriver but I think I've only opened two bottles of wine in my entire life with a SAK.  The backspring phillips is in a pretty crap place and I'd rather use the can opener instead if the SAK didn't have a proper in line one.  The phillips does make the SAK comfier to hold though, especially if it one old the older style square shank jobs.  Frankly I think its time we had a better option than either.

I'm not taking any more mod orders at present, sorry.

Corkscrew for me i am a wine drinker. I live in the San Joaquin valley in California we have wineries everywhere and i am a big fan of the eye glass screwdriver.

Corkscrew.   The Phillips should be on the end!

+1

Hate corkscrews!

Hate the feel, hate the aesthetics.

Corkscrew ruins the smooth, sleek lines of a SAK.

A decent Phillips is crucial for me.  The backspring Phillips on my Tinker has proved its utility many times over the years.

Would never buy any SAK with a corkscrew, unless it also  offered an inline Phillips, like the Wenger S557.
