Old timer noob question
« on: November 06, 2017, 09:15:10 PM »
As many of you already know, the champ has been my go to SAK since 1974. It has also been my only SAK until now.  I bought my first SAK that was not a Champ on the bay of E & just got it today. A Vic Skipper, the person I bought it from was throwing in a free gift with purchase & mine was a little amber colored vic Classic. The camera in this Kindle leaves a lot to be desired so no pics right now, but here is the question..
On the scissors side there is a little slider built into the scales, there is a small round hole in the end of the scale & the slider pushes something out there. It is absolutely not a toothpick. Does anybody know what belongs in there?........???........sadly confused........ :think:

Just a small personal observation.  ...........I would not be at all surprised that when God created the Earth & the heavens, that the SwissChamp was the tool he used. .............. :hatsoff:

The best part is... these are available new for a few bucks. Try searching for Victorinox Swiss Army Retractable Pen 58mm or any combination of these words on your favoured online shopping site.

There's plenty about, they'll be a few on the bay... make sure you get the right one though, there's two different types (i think?) - you want the retractable one.

Edit: Ah... Dutchy's beat me to it!!!

The pen is a great addition to the 58mm SAKs.  I use my Managers quite often.

I've got a MiniChamp with pen too.  I prefer my 58mm SAK with pens.  Heck I prefer my SAKs with pens.  Plus scales turns an already wonderful tool into wonderfuller.

Most Victorinox dealers have them in stock. Or you can order them there or online.
It's a really useful pen.I use it more than I thought.
