I have had Gerbers, they were the 1st Multipliers I owned. I will admit
that I did abuse the hell out of the orginal Multipliers and broke three of
them. Gerber was very good on honoring their warranty. I did not like the way
the tools would fold in or how my palm would get pinched when bearing down on an
item in the jaws.
I have to be honest when I first read about this contest I wanted to
enter and win those custom scales (they would be purple for my wife’s Spartan).
So I started thinking what could I write a review on?
I'm calling this 84mm a "Fieldmaster, one of the knives that Rich at Central Valley Wholesale sold to me for parts; it was in pretty rough shape. Because this knife was so unusual due to the configuration and nail file feature on the square shank Phillips, I thought it was worthy of a restoration effort.
There isn't too much new to see here, this model is very basic in design. The backsprings are the same thickness and profile; they are in fact interchangeable with each other. The center liner is full profile, providing an extra margin of strength to the knife. The blade layer shown is a B&H contract knife that had a broken spring. It has been fitted with a spare ICAR backspring in order to repair the knife.
I thought I would post a few pictures of SAK innards for those who might be contemplating this type of Mod. Top pair is a Tinker and a Waiter with scales removed. Note the difference in the liners at the front rivet; I believe this is to accommodate the differences between the combo blade and the pen/nail file blades.
