Hi abwaluyo

This is the layer next to the cap lifter/large flat driver.

Unfortunately there is no easy way to repair a bent liner at the pivot area.

Without the opportunity of inspecting the knife, it’s difficult to make an assessment.

You could try pressing the SAK together in a vice between layers of hardboard for protection. This may help press the liner flat without removing the scales. (Fold the CS out to prevent pressing it).

If this does not work, next would be more forceful work involving removing the scale and using a light hammer to remodel the liner. Obviously this and above techniques are not without risks (...no responsibility, etc, etc)

Final option is a rebuild. Either factory or modder.

Good luck!  :salute:

greetings, experts. I have a Swisschamp. The outer liner of my knife is bent.
1. Because I love and appreciate this tool, do you know the right non-destructive way to fix this problem?
2. Is there a possibility to repair without removing the scale?
 The answer from you experts will be very appreciated. Sincerely Thanks
I'd try a C-clamp and use some of the suggestions above. I'd open the Caplifter/SD too, to press the bent liner against it.

If that doesn't work, you're probably best off sending it to Victorinox for warrantee repair.  I don't see why it wouldn't be free aside from shipping.

A Clamp would be a good idea.

I'm not sure whether to send it to the Victorinox representative store in my country. but I will try to find out.

Here's mine.

Members of the club - Is there any tool on the SwissChamp that you haven't used, or feel like you dont need? 

I could do without the file... blasphemy, I know... but I just never need one.

What about you?

I figure most people use that the least - I've used to the ruler and the forked hook disgorger (for unintended purposes) enough times to consider it useful.  At one point I nearly bought the Fisherman for that reason.  It's lucky that I didn't have the money at the time, because I haven't used the fish scaler in a while, and I need the saw more often nowadays.

Some folks will hate me for this but I've never been a huge fan of the pliers. :-[  Add a lot of thickness to the SAK and I wouldn't miss them if they were gone.

Try not to be the person who blunders around and causes everyone else to get out the way.  Everyone else thinks you're a utter...

Nothing wrong with that Gareth  :tu:
If we all liked the same tools than Victorinox wouldn’t
have to make so many different models of SAKs  :D

I use my Champion (SC minus pliers) much more often to be honest.  But I have this recurring nightmare that I will need those little pliers and I won't have them with me.   :ahhh

I will agree. While they are good for some tasks, they would never handle the plier abuse I deal with at work. Mainly because they are too small.  :tu:

for home, messing with small parts they work just fine.

The Dolphin screwdriver for me.  I just don't have a big use for it.  Great to see some Swisschamp love!

Nice Wim. :like:

Got this as a trade yesterday. Identified as a 1986 Swiss Champ. Needed a new small blade, polish and good clean.  :salute:

These old model are growing on me.  :cheers:

That’s a nice model then Wim.  :like: Will make it an early version 3 when they first introduced the stud on the scissors, the hook, smooth CS and pin. The keyring moved to the opener layer but the pliers still did not have the crimper.

Yours should be smooth behind the pivot, like this pic. In 1995 they added crimpers.
