    Vic Traveller Lite.

    The corkscrew likely prevented bloodshed on at least one occasion when already inebriated partiers were about to try to open a wine bottle with a large knife.

    I like carring Scientist and Yeoman the most. Next week i plan on building a 84nn Golfer using 91mm scissors.

    How do you get it to fit? Almost 1/4" longer. Do you grind it down?

    It takes two scissor 91mm springs you cut them to make one a two piece 84mm spring. It is a lot of work to do but I enjoy doing it.

    I prefer to use the corkscrew that fits the Vic Spirit

    Huntsman or Spartan. I love the corkscrew for the micro screwdriver that can be held in it. Works so great on my eye glasses.

    Can open wine bottles with the can opener. Drive the can opener into the cork, and twist to pull it out.

    Works on some, but not all corks. My luck has been 50/50. But I only do it for fun. Usually, when I have to pull a cork, there is a corkscrew nearby. I can remeber only 3 times in 30 years when I was out somewhere without a dedicated corkscrew when one was needed, and the one on my SAK did the job. The last time, it was on the first day I was carrying that particular SAK, a Sportsman. Out of sheer luck, I got to be the hero (for 15 minutes :D .)

    Another vote for the Huntsman. I don't drink alcohol of any kind, but the corkscrew and bottle opener have come to the aid of my wife's drunken friends on more than one occasion
