For all your 93mm cutting needs, there's... well, the "Cutter". Main blade, 91mm small blade, awl, wood and metal saws. Now where can I find a 93mm serrated blade?
I'm usually not a fan of the "see-through" scales but they work OK with the saw teeth.

The wood saw uses a main blade backspring (shared with the small blade). The spacer and the liner have been slightly modified to act as a rest, which can be seen in this previous incarnation of the same parts.

+B ‘Carver’ is one option off the top of my head. Expensive though.

I’d just use one from a Serrated Spartan.  :dunno:

Old Picnickers and Outdoorsman too, but good blades will be expensive.

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.

Yeah, it’s too long for any unmodified tools on the other end. it’s not crinked much if at all. I tested this and the floral profile. Not a lot of factory options to try anyway. And this is the 100mm profile I use the most. Thought about cutting a super short small Phillips, but I thought that would be a bit useless on this one so I didn’t bother.

But now that I’m thinking about it, maybe a shortened golf divot tool would be a good weeder.  :dunno:

I’m going to try to get one of the larger hawkbills in later. Definitely no room for much else with those.

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,,

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..

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 :dunno:

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!  :whistle:

 :tu: 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.

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)

I thought you didn’t crink the saw!  :oops:

….

84mm Stainless Metal saw. No bushing required at the pivot. Still in test fitting and needs final trimming, but geometry looks good so far.

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?

Original case hardened w/o the nail nick ones are. But I haven’t seen any of the Stainless or case hardened 91mm ones shortened to fit 84mm yet.

Yes, it is. Sorry, I wasn’t posting it as an example of a main blade knife replacement.

Thanks HB…I was thinking about making bit a ‘big money clip’.  But I think that should be on a riveted knife. Well, unless the clip is crewed in too. I was thinking the 74mm clip pinned into the back scale.

Planning to make one as my first mod over the holiday break from a Climber Small.

Maybe if this becomes a more popular mod, Victorinox would see the demand potential. Then do something about 84mm scissors!

Hi out there,

this may not be a very outstanding mod, but I wanted a clip at my Alox, and there you go.

This one is a bit more sophisticated (prototype), with handle scales made of herdened steel. On one side, the scales are double layered and act as pliers.
