If anyone knows the whereabouts of the 91mm Waiter, please let me know... :dunno:

I think it's hidden away, wth the 84mm Climber.

I see. Dynamic Astigmatism Chameleonitis. I think a Waiter can be used to fix that.

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

There was always something that annoyed me on the Waiter - something did not feel right, especially when putting it into pocket or pulling it out.

I realized it was the key ring - the standard size is I believe too large for such a thin knife. I replaced it with the smaller one from 58mm models and all is good now. Finally it feels right!
Current SAKs:
58mm - Rambler, Alox Minichamp, SwissLite
84mm - Waiter, Alox Bantam, Excelsior, Tourist
91mm - Cybertool M, Swisschamp, Compact
93mm - Harvester
111mm - Forester Wood, Tradesman
other - Baker's, Floral

Excellent point. I generally don’t like keyrings or the lug for them. But I’ve had a few show up over the years with the small ring and they seem to make more sense on a knife like a Waiter or Cadet.

My travel knife.
Airlines allow under 60mm blades in carry on luggage in the European Union.
I shortened my Waiter respectively and made some other minor mods.

I haven't posted anything in a while, so here's my Waiter, tarted up (classed-up?)in white cellidor, doing its thing.

Not that "waiter" isnt a badass profession, but I too feel like the name "bartender" is more suited to this model.
