Trying to customize my swisschamp a bit…
« on: December 04, 2021, 10:44:41 PM »
Hey guys. I have a Swiss champ I carry on and off. I’d like to customize it a bit to make it more discernible from other Swiss champs. I don’t know a lot of the factory/aftermarket stuff out there so I thought I’d ask…

-I’d like to find a set of plus scales. Including the pin. But if I can I’d like to get something different than the solid or translucent cellidor colors.

-Do they sell an implement that can replace the toothpick that’s more useful?

-A pouch. I have the nylon victorinox pouch they sell for the size swisschamp on my belt currently but looking for something different. Leather? Kydex? Horizontal? Molle?

Current SAKs: Explorer, SwissChamp, Handyman (modded), Climber, Super Tinker, Tinker, Woodsman (modded), Electrician, Pioneer, SwissTool

Perhaps a FireFly might be an option for you:

You can find Victorinox scales in different colors pretty easily on eBay; however, lots of them are shipped from Ukraine or Russia. If you want a leather sheath and don't feel like you can make one yourself, there are some good leather crafters out there.

Current SAKs: too many to list in a mere 512 characters.

A good number of custom sheath and pouch makers out there.
The popular one is Skinth, but I find their stuff a bit unimaginitive and almost jerry-rigged. They also refuse to use certain types of fastener, which automatically excludes them from my list.

Etsy can be good, and there's always the likes of Baribal if you're into MOLLE kit.

Here's one of my champs with aluminum scales. It feels pretty heavy duty and I think it looks awesome. I also added the fire ant and tinder. If you find yourself needing a fire it's awesome, office work may be better with the mini drivers.
