Re: My SAK modification ideas

I am a big fan of SAKs but I have only ever made very basic modifications to mine so I doubt that I will have much to add that will be helpful to you.
I own a Rangergrip 78. When trying to decide which one I wanted to buy, I was considering one of the models with the pliers, but in the end I didn't go for them because I couldn't find one with a one hand opening PE blade that also had pliers. I think that the idea of putting Rangergrip sized pliers on a smaller sized tool seems daunting but if you think you can do it, I would be eager to see the results. (sounds cool)
I don't have any experience changing out the blades on a SAK style multi tool, so I cant really help there. I have been changing and modifying blades and other tools to a plier based multitool for a while now. I had a great deal of difficulty drilling through hardened knife steel. I smoked so many bits in the process that I was hesitant to invest in really expensive bits. In the end, I got the job done with a combination of glass cutting bits and masonry bits from harbor freight. I am sure others have more helpful advice.
