You and me both Tony!  I love the Camper.  A Spartan with a saw... what's not to love?  :D

Hi again
Its spring leading to summer so I have to put the Camper w/firefly in the outdoor rotation.
No actual 90° angle to strike it but well see.
Time for the old Zippo

Saw??? :dunno:

Looks good!  Did you make them yourself?  The one set of wooden scales I've made I got lucky on and the holes were perfect and the scales actually snapped on.  Because of that, I left them as they were.  Did you use anything to keep them on?  Adhesive?  If yes, what did you use?  I'm curious about how flexible/brittle and how permanent your adhesive was if you used any.


Thanks!

Yes, I made them myself. My wife works at a custom bass shop and they use a bunch of exotic woods that I am lucky enough to get the cutoffs of. The scales are affixed with two part epoxy. Not much chance of them coming off without being broken off. I glued the wood on then shaped them, at first with my little 1”x30” beltsander, then with a jitterbug palm sander and finally by hand, working my way down to a smooth finish. Topped them off with some boiled linseed oil and rubbed in a few coats and will rub in more over the coming days, weeks and months gradually spacing out the coats more and more.

The Camper is a great SAK that I think often gets overlooked.  The little saw is cool and works really well.

I like the Camper. I'd miss me scissors if it were a solo knife, so I usually pair it with a Classic.

That combination seems really useful to me: a combination of tools and options. The only redundancy might be in carrying two small blades, but I wouldn't complain about having an extra sharp with me.

My deployment SAKa were an Alox Camper, a.k.a 'Farmer', and a Classic. I never wanted for anything more.
