Super Tinker Club
« on: September 23, 2018, 04:32:03 PM »
Not really in the habit of starting new topics much, but here it goes....
Decided to chop off one of my Super Tinker's ring tab yesterday, and it looks and feels a lot better now IMO  :D

And so... here i was thinking....  :think:
There are so many Sak models "clubs", but i don't think i ever saw a "Super Tinker Club"... Now that's not fair on this great 91mm 3 layer Sak, and decided to change that.

Anybody else want to contribute...?  :cheers:




EDIT: BTW, this is the one that went to Vic in 2016 to repair the Phillips liner, took 6 months to get back, when it did they did nothing to the liner (or pin). Changed the main blade that only had minor scratches and needed sharpening, and changed the scales...  :facepalm:

But anyway, it is my first Super Tinker from early 2000's, carried for quite some time and seen lots of use, and i decided to not take it back to spend another 6 months there.
Heck, the Phillips still works great, and the bent liner just adds a little character anyway...  :D

Good idea and great opening photo!

I am a big fan of the Super Tinker since it checks two of my top requirements (blade & scissors).  Despite owning multiple Super Tinkers, I didn't think I had a photo of any of them.  Happily, I found one!

I like the background that you knife is on. It looks like it was drawn and written with a fountain pen.

That's only because of your generosity though, B! :pok:  :twak:  but seriously, this one is great; Hoffritz stamp, square Phillips with can key, no half stop on the caplifter, love it.
You gave me this beauty a while back... it's the only Super Tinker in el collection.

 :drool: :drool:  That deep dark red on those scales... The new ones just don't have that "mojo"...
 I love those old solid scales. Beautiful vintage Sak too  :like:

I used a slip cover & various volumes of a Vincent Van Gough Letters set that my wife has to feature some of my SAKs.  I did this for awhile and later just used my hobby table.

Wait, there's a Super Tinker Club?  I'm in!

Here is the Super Tinker that I bought in 1987 ($31 bucks!) from Cutlery World.  It's pictured alongside my NIB LL Bean special edition Super Tinker, which now that I think about it, also cost about 30 bucks.  But $30 bought a lot more thirty years ago than it does today...

Yup, super tinkers around here cost between 30-35 €, at regular/fair street prices. There are of course the places that charge ridiculous prices for any Sak...  :facepalm:

I've had this Super Tinker since the '80s, and it used to be my EDC. I don't carry it much any more, although I do occasionally.
Now I'm more likely to carry my much newer Deluxe Tinker.

Well, since mine has just arrived from Victorinox maintenance after me procrastinating for years, might as well take part in the club.

Recently picked one up. I really like that is has a Phillips driver instead of the corkscrew. One of the best SAKs I think!

Bought my first Swiss Army Knife back in '88. Super Tinker. No hook.

I carried that until about 2012 when I dropped it off a 3 story building and it got run over by a truck. I STILL used epoxy to re-attach the scales and tried to pry the tools open, for a couple months and I thought it was a lost cause

Received a Tinker Deluxe as a Christmas gift that year and carried that instead.

Few years later I joined here and saw that I could replace the scales of my Super Tinker. Ordered scales and used oil and a flathead screwdriver from my Leatherman PST 2 to pry open the grooves and allow tool opening.

It is now basically retired since I have about a dozen, but I do break it out every now and then
