I tried to put the can opener from a Pioneer in front of the blade. Didn't work for me. The blade is bent parallel to the scale but there's still not enough room.

I have just discovered this thread and would be interested in the outcome but while i agree that the cap lifter is stronger than the combotool wouldn't the pin be the weakest point if trying to pry with it?
So no matter which tool you put in there the brass pin willbe the first to break.

Also the holes in Alox scales are a weak point in the system.
But come on, who pries like a beast with a SAK?

Do you have the spacer on the wrong side?  There needs to be a spacer between the scale and cap lifter, and no spacer between the caplifter and the liner.  Thats the only way I can see it working, otherwise the blade would hit the caplifter.

The brass would be the weak point on standard alox for sure, but once I have swapped in tempered steel pins, it woudl be the scales that I would expect to fail then.  Even still it would take alot more force than the combo tool for prying, those things are much thinner than the cap lifter and would bend much easier.

Yep, spacer between scale and lifter.

Sorry for the necro, but I tried searching and couldn’t find this anywhere else:
Has anyone succeeded in making a large blade / caplifter layer for their mods? It seems you guys here were well on your way. Can it be done? Any tips on how to, and pitfalls?
I would be interested in making a Yeoman with such a layer, instead of the large blade / combo tool.

Did some experimenting today. I have an increasingly hard time believing this could actually be done. What am I missing here?

My problem is that, when using the normal spring for large blade / small blade layer, the cap lifter sticks out way too far when closed. That is not only ugly, and it will snag on things, but most importantly, it will cover the nail nick on the large blade.
I don’t see any room to remove any material of the spring (as suggested earlier in this thread), as it is too thin for that amount of material to be removed.
I don’t see enough room to remove material of the cap lifter itself either, as the ‘hook’ of the cap lifter will be compromised, or most likely have to be completely removed. I would really like to keep the cap lifting function intact.
Can’t use the spring from the opener layer either, because the cutting edge of the blade is going to hit the spring when closed.
All in all this is way too complicated a mod for me to be attempting for my first one. And I don’t have enough cap lifters to just try and sand one down.
So, just an ordinary Yeoman it will be.
I did learn quite a lot about the build and layout of SAK’s today though.

Nope that won't work.  Cap lifter is too thick and is designed to only work on the special shaped opener layer spring.  You'd have better luck with a 84mm cpanlifter with pivot end reshaped to match small Blade pivot end.

Thanks, I might try that at a later date.
Practicing peening and etching blades at the moment...
