Ya I was out of nicer material and didn't have anything handy.  If the bubble wrap touches the Ti it will mark it so I needed to wrap in something. I've always underpackahed so if customs or someone curious looks in there it doesn't look like something expensive they will steal.

My wife started sewing little pouches of cloth that I use to ship in now though.

Nice. That adds a personal touch coming from you.  :like:

Can someone explain to me why the inline philips/cap lifter combo won’t work on a 91mm? I see others in this thread have asked before but the generic answer I’ve read is that the flathead and philips tips are too long. I tried it using the blade back spring and it seems like it would work if you shaved off the inner most round notch on the philips driver a little. What am I glaringly missing?

Phillips is too long and the pivot shape of each tool on a 91 is different.   93s are symmetrical so the springs can be reversed and each opener tool gets the correct spring end.  No way to do that on a 91 without major hacking to all the tools and springs.  I tried once and it wasnt worth the hassle.

Thank you Syph for clearing that up. Guess I’m sticking with the combo tool behind the main blade then. I’ve been reading this thread over the past couple weeks and have been admiring all your handiwork and ingenious ideas. Awesome work.

Since you’ve basically worked with all the available parts, do you know if the flat screwdriver (the one that goes on the back spring) can be retrofitted to work on the back spring that holds the scissors? It looks like a little rounding of the edges may give it the snap and fitting it needs. Like many on this thread who are following your work, I’m trying to make a custom SAK that incorporates only what I need for an urban environment - the flathead screwdriver is of greater use to me than the parcel hook.

Thanks again for your feedback it’s greatly appreciated.

Yes you can put the fine driver on back of scissors but it's alot of tweaking to work.  Round the pivot area, bend the scissors spring to give it more closing pressure and grind down the scissors rest area or the scissors will sit too high. That's what I do to fit the awl on back of scissors

Great thanks! It’s either that or keep the hook and add the saw/flat driver as another layer

Can someone tell me if the main blade on a 93mm electrician be swapped out for scissors and still have room for the awl?

Not enough room to fit any tool with scissors.  The main blade is bent to make it fit.  If you try to bend scissors similarly they will break.

I messed up my shoulder and was out of commission for a couple months.  Finally back at it with a mod that was very fiddly to assemble.  84mm Sportsman plus scissors, clip, drawer and timascus cross.  :D
