A friend of mine asked for a slim 2-layer festooned with Phillips screwdrivers… et voilà…
The micarta scales were a bonus.
Any ideas for a name?

Hi gents,

I've been lurking a bit, getting some tips together and finally have something to post.

First up is a blade delete 91mm Tinker Deluxe.
Initially, thought it would be a cool idea to have the opening layer in the middle, but the plier blocked access so had to be re-done.
I wasn't happy with the peening on some of the tools on v2 and wanted to add the phillips/magnifier from an Explorer so that lead to v3 which is where we are now.
  [ Quoting of attachment images from other messages is not allowed ]  
Much happier with the peening and tension on the tools - the scissors will never be perfect as the back tool isn't the one it wants, but at least now they aren't flopping open by themselves  :D.

Second one is a 84mm Waiter/Walker hybrid.
Plan for this one was to have something with a corkscrew/eyeglass screwdriver to leave in a jacket as needed. The saw was added after I took up whittling and wanted to take some branches whilst out on walks (a weak excuse, but was looking for a quick and fun mod).
  [ Quoting of attachment images from other messages is not allowed ]  

Black/orange Plus sales on both from Taschenmesser.

Next on the menu will be a cut down mini-champ. I'd like a jetsetter with nail file so would need to think about the 4th tool. As I haven't had my hands on a mini-champ just yet we'll have to wait and see how that one goes.

Welcome aboard!

 :cheers: :salute:

Thanks for sharing, those look great!

Bit of a variation of a mod a I’ve tried before but didn’t like in the end. This one is much more balanced being essentially a huntsman but with a Philips and a corkscrew on the back layer and the awl inline 93mm style. It also got a file hook (thanks to a very generous member - thanks Tach! ;0) to fulfil that ‘necessity’ tool for me.

Opener layer inside the scissors and all layer apart form scissors are on main blade springs. Lots of brass spacers to take up the slack.

Plus scales to come of course. See what you think …

Top and bottom pics below. To keep the pressure on the saw blade I had to cut the hole end off of an old corkscrew and insert that in the back layer and then create a rest for the tip of the saw from an old 2.4mm main blade shown in pic below and  in previous pics. Scales on now too!

Ok, so the Phillips is taking up two slots? And is flat with the corkscrew? This is a newbie, can you take a pic from the end so the Philips and corkscrew would look like |I x @|

Ok ok, that’s pretty nifty, so what does the Philips work against on the other side? It looks like the saw? I can’t tell,

It’s the opener layer. The saw is the layer that needed the extra bits added in to keep the tension up.

Very nice job! A lot of work in that, I just recently did a mod which is on this page, but all I did was take a compact, now I could have gone simple and just drilled the one pin in order to take the corkscrew out and replace it with a Philips, but I really wanted a saw, which meant drilling out all four, the other thing I kinda wanted was an awl, which I could have put on the back of the saw, but that meant a lot more work, I do have the awl and I believe the spring but there not the same thickness, so maybe in the future? Besides the awl that I really like are on alox not the sewing needle ones,,

Yeah I Think I comments  on that - love a lumberjack and a few backside tools can’t hurt. I’ve done one with an awl (see pic) and is not that difficult to bring it down in width a bit - take it off the on- nail nick side. You can get an inline awl in 91mm - this one has it if you missed it?  I just thinned the spacer so the combined width is still 2.4mm

The awl I have would be going on the backside of the saw and the awl is a little bit thicker then the saw, so I’d have to thin the awl down,,

Found myself in a mod mood this evening and I can already tell you this one is going to irritate some for messing up a classic, but I just couldn’t resist. This is my Yeotimer. Has little of the old mixed with the new as far as tools.

Victorinox would make a killing, if they saw some of the mods people do here and made them themselves, as LE or the like.

Thanks for comments guys. I decided to tweak an 85 mm Victorinox “yeoman” mod I have today. Added keyring, old school corkscrew and tried something new, I rit dyed the magnifier black. Like the way it contrast with the Evogrip scales. What do you guys think?

Cadet X Celador ( as that’s all I had :0)

Made with Delamont scissors so not ideal but still makes a  very neat little package. Also used a slightly modified Delamont liner in the build - note that the two end holes fit pretty well as they are it’s just her middle ones that need re-drilling for an 84mm Victorinox
