    This is my first mod and though it is a little rough around the edges, I like what I learned doing it. If it will remain whole or be reincarnated again as a new SAK remains to be seen, but for now this is my new edc.

    I was trying to think of what to name it, I was thinking "Expeditioneer" or "Gentleman's Farmer" but would like your input as well. To my knowledge, which is little, this is one of the first, if not the first alox with a back tool, in this case a corkscrew.

    Please let me know what you think and I apologize for the rough condition.

    I took them and the blade backspring from an old golfer.

    Thank you.

    Very nice! Per chance do you have photos or notes from the building process?

    Unfortunately I do not. However, it was very close to this tutorial, with the exception of the corkscrew. For that, I simply made the first layer with two liners, one on each side and trimmed, then set the hidden fourth pin. After that, you create a small divot for the pin to fit into the alox scale and then assemble like a regular SAK.

    It's the first Alox corkscrew mod I've seen, and I like what you have done a lot.

    Original thinking is always great in my book, and I encourage more of it! ;D

    Wow, I've got this 84mm golfer sitting here waiting to be sacrificed myself. Where did you get the liner with the lanyard ring?

    Great SAK! I Love what you did. I'd like sometime similar but without the saw for EDC. The scissors are awesome.

    The ring came on the Cadet that was used for the blade, file, openers, and scales. You can basically look at this mod as a Cadet with a saw, scissors, and corkscrew added to it.

    Ahh. My ideal SAK just became a Voyageur with Copper Scales and a keyring. Now I need a Copper Cadet to sacrifice with the golfer vs a Bantam. Getting expensive.

    You should be able to make the Voyageur with just an old 84mm Golfer and Cadet, as the Golfer had scissors and a combo tool.

    Thanks

    The Cadet has the key ring.
