I saw some before but I looked a little bit ago and I only found like the saw and not the other parts..
JR

I didn’t look, but at least Campers are cheap. I wouldn’t hesitate to tear down a new one if the mod warranted new parts.  :dunno:

hi all,

just finished modding my beloved mini champ so i wanted to brag about it :). i'm not done yet (scales need some minor tweaks and i plan to acid etch the tools but i don't have the acid yet).

so, here's the list of mods:
  • m1.8 screws instead of pivots (had to widen the holes on all tools and springs a bit)
  • custom designed 3D printed scales: front side has the compartments for both the tweezers and toothpick and additional one for a pin/needle, back side has pen
  • removed the ruler/flat screwdriver and cuticle pusher
  • nail file modified to have the flat screwdriver instead of nail cleaner (i plan to also mark the ruler on the back side)

future plans involve darkening the tools with acid, maybe adding some small magnifier, improving the scales design (pen doesn't move as easy as on the original, toothpick is a bit loose) and maybe ordering a 3D print in metal from shapeways (this is printed in PLA and works pretty good as i carried a "testing" PLA scale for last three months and haven't had any issues with wear). i'm also thinking of removing small blade and citrus peeler (to basically get a manager SAK) as i have a small scalpel on the keychain for precise cuts but i just love that small blade.

I think I might have found the right parts for my mod I want to do, going to start with a compact, switch out the corkscrew for a Philips, but then add a layer of a saw with a awl on the backside.. just talking to someone to see if they have the right tension spring, but they have the saw and Philips I actually have the awl,, so it all boils down to the one part.. then once there shipped and I get them I’ll begin!

Nice mod 1g0rb

I really like the idea of the three scale tools in the 58mm - But was wondering how you got the tp and tw on the same side - as they would crash into each other.
Then looked again and reckon that their slots are slightly angled so they slip beside each other - Correct?  ??? 

Vic shoudl think about that!!

thanks Huntsman! yeah, after a lot of time trying to decide which tool to have i decided that i really need both (and the pin comes in handy for removing SIM cards and similar things :))

yes, they are slightly (5°) angled. here's the pic of the bottom side of the scale. i'll share the design files for it after i evaluate it a bit more.

Ok, I figured out the parts, and I found someone who had just the right parts rather then ordering multiple sak’s to do the job, so now I just have to wait for the parts to come in,,

as promised, i'm sharing 3D files for my custom scales from my last post. it includes a lot of variants: with two slots, with two slots+pin, pen and basic, all of them with screw/nut holes as well as with standard SAK snap-on mounting (I haven't tested those recently but before this it worked well on a previous version).

here it is: https://www.prusaprinters.org/prints/124359-sak-58mm-scales

I don’t 3D print, but that’s awesome of you to share!

I think the sincerest compliment would come from Victorinox, if they actually use your idea!  Perhaps you should submit it to them? It would be nice if you got recognition directly from them.  :tu:

Ok who’s done it? I’ll admit I bought the whole kit like 25yrs ago but that was to blue a antique rifle, but for some reason I was kinda curious how many of you have used it on your sak? How long does it last for a edc?
I have that compact that I’ll be customizing, the extra parts came in and I was kinda thinking, what else can I do to add some flavor for it?

I made my first Spydernox Mod today.  It took a bit of work, and it is far from perfect.  At least know what to do next time.

The above was made with left over parts. It's grown on me but has schoolboy errors hidden:

1. Pre-peening, the saw kept hitting the scale liner so I added an extra tool liner to provide clearance.
2. The scale wood was Red Heart. I tried to scorch over a metal Swiss cross to leave an imprint in the wood. That didn't work, so ran a blow torch over the length of the scales, wire wooled them and waxed to cover up the error.
3. I glued on the scale with the corkscrew closed. This pushed down the scale slightly so that it did not line up nicely with the scale liner. Liberal filing tidied things up.

Amateurish, but lessons learned.

I always add an extra liner if I am putting a saw next to a outside liner as, like you, I always find it eventually hits it and starts taking lumps out of the alu. The wood saws especially have a propensity to bend so I find the extra liner gives you that extra bit of leeway.

I use blue painter's tape when I’m being careful, like with brand new or really old ones. Folded over the tool and sealed to itself is all it needs. That’s also what I do with leftover sharp parts that I store and organize with small zip locks.

Lightweight Huntsman:

  • Wood scales
  • Old style scissors, screwed pivot, no back tool
  • Combo tool is a bit stiff, hopefully it will loosen up

Noooo, way beyond the reach of my abilities.

From EBay, a Russian seller, I assumed they were Victorinox OEM.

Yes, my favourite toolset is:

(1) Blade/Combo
(2) Wood saw
(3) Scissors

The Lightweight Huntsman.

I have limited tools and experience, but have made up one 91mm with red scales and another with wood scales.

This is my latest, and last, I've got enough!

84mm in Alox.

I was going to make it in red scales, but Myron tempted me with Alox, which I've never done before.

The peening is rough, but it works. I think I need to hammer it home further. Unfortunately there is a hammer mark just below the pivot north of the cross. I was using a punch to round off the pivots and it slipped. Impatience and lack of attention to detail.

Many thanks to the generosity of Myron who supplied most of the parts.

Such a cool knife!  And you did a great job peening those pins over.  So fun to see how this looks in an 84 mm frame, too. 

Excellent work, @SAKTaschenmesser!
