For quite a few years the Victorinox Mauser was my outdoors SAK of choice. I hadn’t been introduced to the beauty of alox models yet and there was something about the 108mm size that felt just perfect. When I learned about the collection value of a Mauser I promptly retired it, it had served me well from age 10 and it was time to find a replacement.
Credit goes to Spudley for giving me the ideal for this.
Materials needed: J-B Weld, large diameter straw from Mickey D’s, tool of choice (Phillips, Allen, Torx, etc.) and masking tape.
Often times the subject of carrying a SAK is brought up. In fact, easing the carryability of tools has spawned a number of credit card type tools like the Victorinox SwissCard to the Spydercard. Many times, the discussion goes to maximum size for pocketability, then into number of layers that are comfortable etc. I personally prefer carrying SAKs in sheaths, which is the subject of this article.
