The Walker/Lumberjack owners club.
« on: April 10, 2020, 09:21:29 PM »
About a year ago I had to find a lighter tool set with a saw. I started working in a office so a Soldier/OHT on my belt would not work in that environment. I discovered the light weight compact Walker and now it's my work EDC.

So let's here it for the Walker/Lumberjack.

Jeep the SAK of the auto world or is it SAK the Jeep of the Knife world?

Very nice and thanks for sharing. I don't have one yet but I have the Walker on order and can't wait for its delivery ! I really like the 84/85mm format for its lightweight functionality. I intend my Walker to cover my daily hike/ trail run requurements. Will post pics when I recieve my Walker.

I inherited my father’s old Lumberjack (the Eco one IIRC). I don’t just have it to hand for a photo, but it’s included in my group shot that I took for my Knights Banner application on that thread.

I’ll arrange a decent outdoor shot of it at some point.

It was an absolute pleasure to find it amongst all the knives my brother and I gathered from his huge collection. He was a true Knife Man, and brought me up the same. The blade had a nasty 2-3mm chip out of it. An hour’s work on my waterstones from 400 up to 8000 got it, as I often say, “better than when it left the factory”.

It's hard to beat the size and weight vs. the usefulness of the Walker. I would really like to see an Alox Walker become available. That would be a great SAK for a compact survival kit.

Looking forward to seeing the old Lumberjack. :tu:

That's the same reason it attracted me. I can carry it with a 65 or 58mm for a more complete tool set and the two SAK's are still lighter then a OHT.

First 84mm cellidor. I much prefer the feel of cellidor in the hand to alox when it's a thin (2-layer) 84mm since it's a little thicker with rounded corners and the plastic grips easier.

Not sure why but I suddenly took interest in the really basic Victorinox models, even though I pretty much insist on scissors for a carry tool. Something about this model is just so humble.



Here it is compared with some others (Compact, Walker, Cadet, Pioneer).

Very nice -- wonder which is more useful, the combo tool or the small blade. Suppose it depends on what you're doing, but I think the small blade might have the edge. (  :hatsoff:  :facepalm: )

 :hatsoff:  Thank you.......not a huge fan of the combo tool so the small blade does it for me.  I do have a Walker though and like it as well.    :cheers:

For me, clearly the combo tool. A SAK without a Phillips is useless to me.  :hatsoff:

It's great to see some interest in my favorite 84mm SAK.

For me, clearly the combo tool. A SAK without a Phillips is useless to me.  :hatsoff:

Scissors and a Phillips driver are tools I use to often to not have on me along with an awl. I may sound like a broker record once again but. I pair my Walker with one of My Pocket tool chest and that gives me what I'm missing. The cap lifter SD is the same size as a standard Vic can opener SD and handles all the Phillips it well. Plus I get my scissors and awl. Pairing the two gives me a perty complete tool set.
