What is this tool for?
« on: March 22, 2015, 06:10:29 PM »
I picked up a VSAK at a yard sale but it has a tool I have never seen… nor can I find it through the usual sources.

Pic attached.  The edge of the tool facing the camera is a file.

Any help is appreciated! :salute:

That would be an early Golfer, the later versions had a combination bottle opener/can opener tool.

and the tool is a long nail file.

Nice find. Congrats. Could we see a picture of the whole knife?

And welcome to the forum.

Thanks for the info!

I am attaching a photo (but forgot to open the nail file!).  You can see that the large blade has been broken and badly re-ground.  I also noticed the small blade has a different bevel on it than my other SAKs.  It was only 50 cents… so it might be fun restoring this one! (I already stole the metal tweezers for my EDC SAK! - 50 cents covered!)

One first sight of this damaged 84mm, it made me feel like Bluto in this clip...

It might be a fun restoration project. Just pick up a Bantam or a Waiter and replace the whole broken layer. You'll need brass stock for the pins. There are a few tutorials on how to do it in a sticky post on the top of the mod squad. You can keep the old 5 turn corkscrew or if you choose he waiter replace it with the newer 4 turn one.

Also, the 84mm scissors are in demand here for mod jobs. :D

That's a bargain for 84mm scissors! Nice find :)

You should seriously visit vicfan.com. All the hoopy froods are doing it.

Thanks enki_ck, I should do that, it would be an inexpensive intro to SAK modding.  I like the idea of using the 4-turn corkscrew too, that way I can add the small screwdriver.  Will the scales from the waiter fit this knife?  These scales have seen some use!

Yes, but be careful when taking them off. Heat them in warm water or with a hair dryer to soften them a bit.
