On rare occasions Amazon reviews can be quite good. This one for the Waiter is excellent and comprehensive. It even references multitool.org :tu:

My brothers Waiter.
He told me this is his first SAK. It has seen a lot of action playing in the woods.
And I could tell. The blade's tip was bent, the combo tool was bent. And the edge... was as good as gone. The straight part of the edge had a slight convex curve to it. As far as I know Victorinox has no recurve blades on the Waiter... :facepalm:


Victorinox Waiter

I like how he kept the box and booklet. He now keeps it in his desk drawer, but still uses it.
I think he got this SAK in 1995/96. These things are really lifetime tools.

Now that it is winter and I'm wearing a coat when I leave, I've been regularly carrying a KF4 in a jacket pocket, which means that I really only need a SAK for the SAKish items like the thin blade, corkscrew, bottle/can opener, tweezers and toothpick, which means that the Waiter is the perfect fit. So now I'm re-appreciating the Waiter :tu:

Also during the holiday season I am quite likely to need the corkscrew to open a bottle of wine and will definitely be using the cap lifter to open a beer or two :drink:

yup, homemade.
I often use them instead of the P7 clips on smaller, thinner SAKs, as they keep them closer to the edge (seam) of the pocket

I got so mixed up with Wenger Wednesday... I'm so ashamed  :facepalm:

I did come home and open up my 1st gen, early 80's Waiter a few times, and used the newer one I have in the kitchen drawer to help me cut up some garlic..

Ha! I saw Wenger Wed too, but not being a colector, I figured I give you guys a hard time about the Waiter...  :whistle:
I might gift my spare to my nephew if he's good, which would be a miracle. ...

Yup. My favorite SAK mod so far has been my waiter->apprentice conversion... the white economy scales would look stunning with a contoured can-key phillips driver apprentice.

Wohoo!

I won a lot of vics from ebay which included a Waiter. It's my first, and MAN do I like it. So incredibly light and such a slim package. I figured it was about $3.75 worth of a $15 lot. Worth every cent. :D

Congrats on the Waiter. There is something really appealing about the size/functionality ratio. I carry mine regularly, especially when I don't expect to be doing much more than cutting something and opening beer, which is frankly most of the time these days :)

If I'm dead honest, I'm the same. Friday nights, I go to a freind's house and drink beers that need to be popped open. It's not like they don't HAVE bottle openers in their kitchen, but it's more... 'fun' I guess... to use a SAK.

And most of the cutting I do is cutting open mail... which is usually packages with other multitools. :D

funnily enough, I had a Waiter with the "MAN" branding on its scales. I guess it must've been a popular gift from that company since I've stumbled upon six or seven "MAN" branded SAKs throughout the years

I read your post quickly and though you had purchased a "MAN" Waiter too, but then read it again  :rofl:
