Now where can I find a 93mm serrated blade?
100mm Hawksbill in a Trekker + Hook. Uses the liner lock for the Hawksbill. Retains all the other original tools aside from the OH serrated blade.
May I ask how you did it? My early attempts had the hawksbill hitting anything I tried to pair it with.
I think I’m getting a Compact for Xmas, and the one thing I can’t stand is the corkscrew, yeah it gives you that little screwdriver but I’d soo like to put a Philips on it, heck even sneak a saw on it with a blank backside? But that means changing out all the pins rather then just the one if swapping out only corkscrew for the Philips,,JR
Thanks again, HB! Performing well yesterday after extensive sharpening efforts. I think I might do that with my ‘old’ Trail Guide that I used to demonstrate the scraper mod on its Combo Tool. Either regular Phillips, 58mm Combo phillips or ? Corkscrew isn’t so useful to me on more ‘urban’ knives. Thinking of a blade swap for serrated too while I’d have it apart. New plus scales as the original Marlboro ones were already trashed when I got this one.
Pretty much the same tool but with the added file, my thing would be to only have to pop that one pin in order to swap to the Philips, although In your case and just having to swap out the serrated blade you might be able to just do one other pin, unlike where I’d like to add a saw I’d have to do all of them..JR
That’s true…one pins swaps are nice when that’s all you need. I have a habit of doing that to donors when I only need one part, like a serrated blade. I also have it in my head to convert the whole thing (the Trail Guide) to 84mm just to try it. But I haven’t shortened the case hardened type metal saw yet. Stainless ones are easy enough.
I have a few parts one being a backside Philips and a saw and I think I’m getting a compact for Xmas, so simple and easy, or pop them all and go all out JR
No idea what I was playing at here but I like it! It works for me as a 2 layer but I feel with either a mag layer or a pliers layer (either or, not both) would make this even better!
Nice. I do something similar, but with the spring 1 liner width more under the saw. I did it that way because of the higher spring pressure in the saw tang. Liners ‘hide’ the exposed sweep of the tang.
Pics please … ;0)
nice Good idea Helvetica Bold is it the spring of the big blade?
Thanks Hulk. Yep same same spring as if it were a blade just need a thin .2mm extra spacer to take the wiggle out as the saw is thinner than the blade ;o)
84mm metal saw is quite a rare beast isn’t it?
That’s down the small blade end isn’t it? Mine replaces the main blade which may be the difference?
Cadet XModern bits, vintage details.
Very nice indeed! If only Victorinox would just build it Planning to make one as my first mod over the holiday break from a Climber Small.
