You're correct on both counts Bunk!

The Delemont line's main blade IS quite thin. I'm not sure if it's thinner than an 84mm Vic but I know for a fact that it's thinner than a 91mm Vic main blade. I'm not sure if it makes much difference in practice though, at least not in the scenarios that I'm likely to be using a SAK blade. In fact, for me, thinness is usually helpful!

And yes, the bottle opener is not the same as the traditional Vic models. My understanding is that they kept the Wenger design because it has that "push lock" that keeps it from closing on you while you're pressing down on it and the traditional Vic version of the bottle opener doesn't have that feature. Meanwhile, they did start putting the Vic can opener on the Delemonts - I'm glad they did because it's my favorite tool and I don't think I would have bought one if they still had the old Wenger lobster claw version.
Back in high school electronics class in the 60's I used to mount components (like a potentiometer) on aluminum boxes.  Once I got a small hole drilled I often used that can opener like an awl to widen the hole.  I used it similarly on wood.

I started the day with an Evolution 23, and a Farmer X rotated in later. The Bantam remains in another pocket, and the Executive is still on the neck lanyard.

One to four layers of SAK is (usually) best for me.

If you have absolutely nothing better to do, my YouTube channel is awlways an option:

Dug out an old mod of mine.  An 84mm Vic with scissors, saw and combo tool.   8)  I'd first tried my hand a modding in order to make the 91mm version of this, but wanted to really lean into the "maximum minimum" idea.

I really like the white scales. Thats a color I need to add to my collection
Carry a Victorinox SAK folks,  because you dont know what life is about to throw at you.

I just got the card the other day.  So far I’ve used the scissors and the glass.  Haven’t used the other tools yet.   The card is a functional form factor.  The knife will make a good package opener, and I’ve found the pen, pin, tweezers on my other SAKs useful through the years.  I’m looking forward to seeing how the 4 way screwdriver works when needed.  The card easily fits in a wallet or pocket.  I’ve been dropping mine in my shirt pocket while at work and a I don’t even notice it.  It’s a hair smaller than a credit card but a 2-3 millimeters thicker.

I've had one in the note section of my wallet for a while, now. Fits perfectly.

I carried a swisscard in the note section of my bifold for years too, hardly noticeable until you need it and then it's there to save the day.
Check out my Youtube channel  for gear reviews, comparisons, and carry philosophy.

Love belt carry? Consider doing the Batman Challenge!

I carry mine in front pocket like a normal SAK/foldie or in jacket pocket like a wallet/phone/card holder etc.

Got my black scaled Spartan as on family holiday so no need for the heavy duty alox ( although it is in my bag, never hurts to be prepared 😎 )

No action shot but I had good use of my alox mod today. I understand that the use of plastic should be lowered in the world. But with lunch today we got paper utensils! Paper! Can you believe it?

Anyway to be able to cut my schnitzel I needed a real knife and not a paper one..
