Added a fero rod, and tinder on the CS, so the saw blade should be able to do a fire pit!

This might be a silly question but... Why is there no 84mm version of the Camper?

It's not like we have a 84mm scissors situation here, the 84mm wood saw is still in production!

Interesting, I never thought of that.  It would essentially be a Tourist with a wood saw.  :like:

Exactly! I love the Tourist and the 84mm size category in general. The wood saw is on the Walker… It’s right there!

I used the saw! But not on wood…

I have a little plumbing project going and this old hard plastic flexible tube/pipe that has to be replaced. It was capped by a threaded brass fitting that I just could not get off with my hands. Plus it was under the sink, so I was in an awkward position.

Then I remembered my Camper was in my pocket! I whipped out the saw and was through that 2” flexi-tube in under 2 minutes!

Then I used the main blade and bottle opener to gradually work the remains of the flexi-tube off the end of the brass fitting since I need to reuse it.

I’m very impressed with the saw!  I’ll probably be using it on some PVC later today too. I look forward to trying it out on some actual wood at some point.  :D

The Camper performed admirably again today.

My plumbing project continued. I had to reconstruct a poorly done sink drain and air conditioning condensation line tie in. Apparently someone thought that a roller coaster style loop the loop on a gravity based drain was a good idea….  :facepalm:

I had to cut through some 3/4” PVC and a few other plastic pipe types to get everything to fit correctly and create a non-gravity defying drain.

Plastic pipe stands no chance against the Victorinox saw!

I really like the Camper though. I might not need a saw every day but when you need one there’s really not much you can do/use as a substitute. Even when it’s not being used the saw layer adds just enough thickness to the SAK to make it a more comfortable grip versus the 2 layer Spartan.

Plus, I usually have a Rambler in my pocket so I have scissors covered that way.

Exactly why the Camper plus Rambler combo has long been a favourite carry of mine.  :)  :salute:

The other thing is the scissors. Vic scissors are fantastic, no question. But at some point I realized that the 58mm scissors were sufficient 99% of the time. I cannot remember a time when I needed the 91mm scissors because the 58mm version couldn't do the job.

So the fact that the Camper doesn't have scissors isn't that big a deal for me (at least so far!).
