84mm Climber w/ hook?
« on: December 07, 2016, 02:24:59 PM »
There's what looks to be nylon scaled Small Climber on the Bay, but it shows a hook on the backside.  Did they come with a hook or were they discontinued prior to the hook?  SAK Wiki only shows them without the hook, so I'm more inclined to believe that the Bay knife is a 91mm.

I thought so too Leaf.  I think that guy's meter stick is off by about 7mm!!

I've never actually seen an 84mm Climber, much less one with a hook. I'm more inclined to believe it's all just a rumor anyway.   :climber:

That makes two of us!  I'd love to have one just to see how nicely it carries.

There is a quick way to spot if a Vic' SAK is 84mm or 91mm.
If the awl/corkscrew pivot is nearly inline with the point of the shield it's 84. If there is a gap the size of the shield it's 91mm




you're welcome

Small climbers certainly do exist.  Here are a couple of mine  Both in horn scales, one a 1940's Armee Suisse and the other a 1950's Victoria.




But 84mm scissors were discontinued long before the introduction of that abomination the hook.

The trick that @PTRSAK pointed out is the quickest way to differentiate an 84mm from a 91mm...

84mm knives have never been produced beyond 4 layers... existing models are max 2 layers... rest assured, 3-4 layers are discontinued models...

84mm models only have the phillips/corkscrew and awl as backtools. Older models may have the long file...

cmiiw...

Unfortunately the Delemont Vic's probably stopped that from ever happening.
But as I proved, http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,41486.0.html , it's not a big job to fit the "Wenger" scossors into the 84mm Victorinox frame. Maybe a factory version of this "mod". All they would need to do is a new backspring, much less work than both scissors and spring.

At one time I did consider your approach for my 84mm Golfer build. But then went for 91mm scissor implant as I couldn't get myself to like the Delemont scissor serrations (self sharpening). Just my preference...
