    Has anyone ever removed this part of a SAK?

    If so, what method did you use? I'm considering a dremel.

    You can remove it with pincers and than sand off the remaining part with sandpaper/stone/diamond coated file.

    very easy. I did it twice. unvoluntarily on a vintage old cross brass liner Farmer after a massive truck rolled over it (keyring attachment split and thus became useless - the knife itself is bombproof and fine, don't worry) and then from my Cadet, because that slim knife is so much better without that ring.

    I just took a cheap old metal saw and cut it off and then some coarse and then fine sandpaper to remove more metal and smoothen it. I just put a piece of sandpaper flat on a table and ran the knife over it until it was good.

    very easy to do. takes only a few minutes even without power tools.

    Will this void the warranty?

    Probably but SAKs are so inexpensive, I'd buy a new before I bothered with the warranty.


    Anyway, I was able to do it quite easily. Snipped it off with some diagonal pliers and sanded down the stub. Looks awesome.


    Thanks for the help everyone.
