If I'm sporting Plus scales and don't have the hook to hold the pin I'm all like  :td:

I understand that mate, but all 84/91 current scales have the pin hole (plus or standard), except the nylon ones i think...  :think: so no need for the hook for that...

That might be a typo Mac.  :salute:

Oh yeah... didn't thought of that one, meaning the Pen...  :oops: well there are some guys that store the Pin under the hook so i thought that's what EC meant...

Yes it does come in handy for that too, but again, for me i don't consider it essential (hook or pen/plus scales for that matter...). Come to think of it, i don't even have a single Sak with  Plus scales on it... :think:

For sure, the essential Climber for me is a Pioneer X, but nice to have the extras on board occasionally.  :tu:  :cheers:

Much like El Pikacthulhu, Unit 3 will never completely disappear from the map.  :D

Sadly, both are hookless (relating to the thread to avoid a major derailment)...  :ahhh

Well... even though i like the 93mm Alox line, for the main EDC Sak i'm still firmly on the Cellidor camp  :cheers:
These days specifically on the 84mm Cellidor camp...  :salute: It seams weird but when ever i pick up a 91mm these days it just feels huge to me...  :facepalm: for the pocket at least...

Nope. The only "non standard" model he had other than the classic red cellidor models was the hard wood spartan on "Serenity"  :cheers:

The fabled 11th Anniversary Celebratory Global Passaround (or 11ACGP) eh? Can't wait. I must say, the passaround is prolly the only thing standing between Mo and Madam Guillotine currently.

Well that's true, and he actually used a Huntsman in 2 or 3 Ep's  :D
But the idea for the character and the use of Sak's was always the minimalist aspect, his mind was the "real" Sak, while the actual Sak was just a tool he used to help achieve his goal. Not a guy using a load of gadget's... (like the current Macgyver reboot... :whistle:)

People tend to fantasize a lot about the Sak's used on the show, like there was some kind of master purpose for all the different ones, but there really wasn't  in general... Unless they actually needed a very specific tool (scissors or saw, or the orange peeler...  :whistle:), 90% of the time he just used the blades, opener's, awl, and philips/corkscrew.

He used a lot of different models because they bought a whole box of them for the show, and RDA sure destroyed a load of them as he already admitted (150 plus...), either on the actual shoot's or in his spare time, throwing them and sticking them everywhere...  :rofl: That's probably the main reason they wen't thru so many, and so many models  :facepalm:

Just going back through season 1, pretty sure I noticed him going from 84mm to Executive in the same scene.  :D

Oh yeah, i thinks it's the one called "Hellfire" where him and his friend are getting some dynamite to put out the fire on a oil drilling weal. He is using the small tinker blade so scrape the nitro from the bottom of the dynamite box in one shot (of his hands), and on the same but shot facing them and the dynamite box he has an Executive you can clearly see the ring on top of the main blade  :whistle: Clearly the shot's where filmed in two different days. The shot of his hand's and the Tinker it may not even be him (RDA) as he said in interviews his brother doubled him in some "hand" shot's because their hand's are very alike...  :rofl:

the day i see someone walk into the post office with a stack of brown paper wrapped parcels and string being toted by a vic hook is the day when I give all my saks away, what year is this 1948? In fact if that has ever been done by a living human being I would be shocked

 ??? ??? ??? Ookkk....
:cough cough: The hook was introduced n 1991 :cough cough:

ITS NOT FOR CARRYING PARCELS.  :D
Its a hook shaped piece of metal that can save your bacon(or cook it easier) in lots of situations,
and why would anyone want no tool rather than a hook?

So far, a hook hasn't saved the day or my bacon.

I purposely focused on buying pre-1990 SAKs (91mm) w/scissors that I could clean up, re-scale w/plus scales so I didn't have the hook. I only have a small handful of SAKs that have a hook...primarily in order to get the StayGlo scales.

As for no tool vs the hook, on my Golfers I get the Awl vs the hook...a worthwhile trade if you ask me.

I never used it as such, but always thought that the hook would be great in case I dropped my keys on the ground and they landed into a catch basin.
I would open the hook all the way, tie a string to the knife ring and voilà!

I think it happened to Macgyver once, and he used the can opener instead... I don't think that would be very doable.

Just in the past week at scout camp, I used my Climber's hook to haul a gallon of BBQ sauce in a bag a half mile, loosen a too tight end of a minimag light, undo a tent knot.....etc.  I've become a huge fan of the hook!!
