    Thank you for your useful reply. I really like the pocket clip, plus the fact that Böker uses 12c27, which is a really good allround knife steel. IMHO, it is vastly superior to both 420HC and Victorinox' proprietary mystery steel.

    It seems a bit strange to me that the serrated blade only opens 3/4 of the way. Perhaps that is supposed to be better for rope and seatbelt cutting, but doesn't it make it much harder to use the screwdriver tip?

    Yeah, I wouldn't want to put any pressure for fear of it closing on me.

    I have the Sanrenmu variant of the Tech Tool 2 called WA721-A1 (really catchy name indeed). I had high hopes for this serrated tool as I liked the hook on another SRM knife, the T01. This serr. tool is rather blunt and I also don't get the position where it's locking.

    After disassmebling the knife to round and smoothen the rough textured G10 I've seen no way to alter the angle, too.
    If I ever decide to make scales for this knife I'll try to mill the gap for the tweezers in the other direction to get the clip in tip-up position, at tip-down it's biting my hand while working with it.

    Instead of the corkscrew I'd prefer a philips screwdriver, too.

    My collection so far. Viper Ten in the front is the latest addition. Got it today. Smoothed some sharp edges in the G10 with fine sandpaper. Only after a bit of flipping it's already feeling super smooth and like the quality blade i was expecting. :) I'm getting shivers at how it closes with just slight shaking. :D

    Hope my knife fever calms down for a bit with this latest purchase. ;)

    Handle painted, stop pin painted, yellow paracord wrap on the spacers, laseretching on the blade, mirror polish on blade and clip, custom G10 scale from suingab. The paint needs 2 months to harden out (1 left), then i'll sand it and repaint because it has allot of inperfections.

    edit: these pictures are better:
