I have a few articles that I forgot to use this month, ready to go for next month! :D

It should be pretty interesting... there's still lots of stuff from the SHOT Show to go through, but it's more company related (like catalogs) than SHOT related, so hopefully we'll get back to "business as usual" there.

A great month alright, I prefer the original configuration of my Cybertool 41 to that custom job though, but I do hate serrated blades.

To each their own... that's what makes SAKs such a great thing.  We can all agree that SAKs rock while we each carry (and collect) our own preferences. 

As I wrote in the story, I always felt that two plain edged blades were a little redundant and always thought it made more sense, if you were going to have two blades, to have one serrated and one plain edged.  I s'pose I could've gone for a much more conservative mod and just swapped the short blade with a nail file, but you really don't ened that with the metal saw.

Anyway, I'm a little surprised that I haven't been called out on the fish scaler as an odd addition to an urban knife.  No one questioning that?

I don't argue with anyone's SAK preferences unless they prefer cheap knockoffs!  :D

Frankly, I think the CoreDuo is a pretty sweet knife.  I don't understand the fish scaler myself, but I assume you have your reasons! :D  If you are looking for an excuse to tell the story of why you have a fish scaler, please feel free to use this post!

It's long and has a forked end...great for getting into extremely tight spaces and moving/grabbing something. 

EDIT:
I think there is an actual computer oriented hand tool that has a similar shape...no ridges to scale fish or a ruler, but it has that forked end.

Are you wanting the fish scaler just because it has a ruler? :think:

Well, it really isn't much of a story.  I'm just figured that would be the one tool that people would question.  The reason is just that it's a nice long narrow arm that I can use to reach into tight places to try and push or pry at something.  The lack of a sharp edge means I won't accidentally cut something. 

The ruler part is a nice little bonus, but that isn't primarily the reason for the tool.

I will say this though, I've already used it for a task that I thought I really won't need it for.  My son was in a public restroom and needed some assistance.  I won't go into the gory details, but he's youngish and had locked the slide on the door.  The lock had access from the outside of course, but you needed a special tool to be able to reach into the opening and push it over.  The tool much have two small prongs on it cause there where two small holes, perfectly spaced for the hook gouger on the end of the fish scaler.  Man I love SAKs!

BTW, I also recently used the watchmaker's tool to change a battery on my watch.  Works fantastically well!

I knew why you wanted a fish scaler. I had a SAK once that had a fish scaler and it was about the best pokey thing you could ask for.

Did scibeer ever send that one to Victorinox? And if so, was there any feedback?
With all the combo tool mods he is doing (like the recent family of coloured lumberjacks), I bet he can put together a 20-opener-layer SAK just from the parts lying on top of his bench  :D

I just bagged up 50 opener layers to get them out of my parts bin and make some room and there's still more left!

I never sent the opener knife in.   People conviced me that it wouldn't be funny to the folks there.   I still think they might like it.

Dont think I haven't thought about it!!

I have these foot long sections of pinstock that I'd love to see a knife made from without cutting down.   How wide is that Wenger Giant again?   I'd have to go at least a half inch bigger to make it worth it.

By the way, in case anyone here had trouble hearing the audio clip from Peter Hug discussing the future of the Soldier knives, I have re-posted it as a YouTube video.  I didn't want to go this way initially because it seems kind of lame, but since the other option didn't work so well for everyone I had to do something.

I was thinking of a knife with three main blades would be cool... a plain edge, a serrated edge, and a combo edge.

The obvious name for it would be the Trident!  Should have blue scales with the fish logo found on the angler.
