Victorinox soldier disassembly
on: March 20, 2020, 01:13:04 AM
Does anyone know of any videos/pictures of a victorinox soldier being disassembled. I was originally going to mod a huntsman lite but the one handed blade and od green color of the soldier appeals to me more. I'm planning on cutting my house key to swap places with the can opener and my car key to swap places with the reamer. I need to know what size brass rods are beneath the scales and also how many there are.

The soldier victorinox I'm referring to is picture, so it isn't confused with the alox soldier.

Please check this sticky here:
https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,43303.0.html

It contains all (or at least a lot of) the modding guides

And there is certainly one there on pin sizes

I saw that, but it isn't clear to me what the pin sizes are for a 111mm with a liner lock.
I found this picture of a 111mm with a slide lock. What would these measurements look like on the soldier liner lock model?

I can see swapping an inline tool with a house key, but the reamer seems like the wrong position and too shallow to swap with a key.
In any event it doesn't seem like a good idea to put a car key on a SAK, especially a big and heavy 111 mm.

Hmm you might be right about the weight being an issue. Do you think a Huntsman lite, where I swap out scissors for a car key would be a better option. I've seen pictures of SAK car key mods with them hanging down from the ignition. My car is on its way out anyway so I'm not too worried about potentially damaging it.

The outer pins are 3mm and the inner ones are 2.5mm.  For assembly you definitely want to keep at least the blade and bottle opener to so that the locks aren’t pushing on the tools.  I’m sorry I don’t have any videos, I might have a picture I’ll take a look tomorrow, if not I might be able to just lay out the parts on a bench and take a picture.

Thank you for the information. And pictures aren't necessary, I found a few online. Thanks again

be carefull with your car key.

The weight and leverage of the knife might damage your ignition lock.
Was told to watch out by my mechanic when he saw my huge key bundle hanging with my car keys.

So watch out.
