I have two Swisschamps. A red and a blue transparent one. Both users. I carry the SC vertical in my right front pocket, hanging from a Vic steel belt hanger. The Swisschamp is a very usefull tool and i don't consider it heavy or big. I love SC
I love my SC!I'm fairly new to SAKs, up to three weeks ago I only had an excelsior (which doesn't really count), and now I have... 7. The SC was my fourth, and first 91mm. Having bought a 58mm, 84mm and 93mm, I knew I needed a 91mm, but how to choose? Fortunately I stumbled upon a helpful Amazon review (unfortunately I can't find it to credit the author), that essentially said:"buy a SC so you don't have to worry about which tools you want but don't have, once you have everything you can begin to decide how to downsize"Of course, I was well on my way to becoming a Knight, so this made perfect sense to me. But I can honestly say I'm glad I followed this suspect logic; the SC exceeded my expectations. I never knew I needed a magnifying glass; the backside tools have been fun to find uses for; and I'm even enjoying the fish scaler! Great for cutting polystyrene foam.I can tolerate pocketing it when I'm spending the day doing DIY. It fits in the 5th pocket fairly well, and the size when handling it just gives a better grip.I was surprised that the girth did not affect even the chisel.I've settled on 2 layers of any length to be my upper limit of thickness for daily carry, so I'm glad I didn't spiral down the 91mm rabbit hole of hiker, climber, huntsman, etc.In short, I would consider the SC a mandatory purchase
Posted this in the latest acquisition thread but thought I'd toss it in here for anyone browsing the biggy mac champ I have an idea for a very useful mod for this one. I'm still planning to see if I'd be able to get it right as it'll be a bit tricky -- have never seen it done before. Nice thing is the mod wouldn't remove any of the existing functions, only add.
