I picked up a waiter to use in the minimal challenge. I am liking it. I can see it replacing the sportsman as a suit knife as well as a lightweight shorts /sweatpants. It is my first combo tool. I still need to open a can but it has passed bottles, flat head and light duty phillips

I thought it was you complaining ( ;) ) about all the green stuff here on MTo lately.

Nice SAK Max :dd:

Brand new cellidor looks so good. Too bad it scratches so easily.

...yes it was. I had a chance today to pick up a pair of scales, and after all the green posts (and yours  :pok:), I had to get something green  :D

Thanks Rizio - they went on a Waiter that needed a change anyway, so a good excuse for a change of clothes  :cheers:

True, but you know how Victorinox is (was) with model names...
"Early Alox scaled models (see 2230xx Identifiers below) featured a regular cap-lifter, rather than the combo-tool opener, and had horizontally ribbed scales. These models were known as the Waiter at the time, but more closely resemble the current Alox Bantam."

Mostly true. ‘Regular’ caplifter...except that it’s 100% reversed or symmetrical to what I’d call a regular one. I wouldn’t bother with owning this Waiter if not for this distinction.

Either Bantam has a Combo Tool.

The waiter (not sure- did it used to be called bartender? ) it is a thing of beauty- Unobtrusive, light weight and oh so functional. I’m a big fan of the corkscrew for its plethora of uses However most recently the tweezers came in quite handy- as a make shift lock pick set  - when I was locked out of my shop on a rural property.
Cheers fellow waiter enthusiasts!

Very cool. You actually went full MacGyver with the scale tools to pick a lock?! Holy crap! :ahhh  :salute:

And you’re right, the Waiter was called the Bartender in some markets (canada? :think: ). As referenced in this thread about 3 years ago
