Well, if I had to pick I think the GAK would win but that is maybe because I am thinking I need one in my life.
Was discussing GAK’s in the What’s your latest SAK forum yesterday, they’re an excellent bit of kit and can be usually had for a very good price so I’d recommend adding one to your collection for sure.
This challenge is a particularly good one, 90 days definitely means you need to choose well even though any of the Soldiers would be an excellent choice.
Up to now I’d been thinking either mod 61 or 2008, I know I’d be happy with either. Carried the 61/Pioneer plenty and really like 111mm SAK’s in general, last year’s 111 challenge was one of the best.
But getting another GAK recently made me realise I’ve never really carried one and that it’s lighter and slimmer than the 2008, but with almost same sized blade and saw, plus it’s not much heavier than a 61 (approx 86gm Vs 70gm). The scales are more grippy and the drivers work well even though they look a bit awkward…anyway plenty of time to decide
