    We like our SAKs, and we definitely like Alox around here, but I wanted to share a fairly uncommon Cellidor model with you. I considered throwing in the scissor layer from another SAK, but I'd hate to lose the slim profile of it, and I always have 58mm scissors on my keys or similar.

    This is the Special Mechanic. Two extremely useful layers, no frills :)

    That's neat! I've never had a SAK with pliers, how are those?

    Great actually, certainly for smaller tasks. Comparable to the LM PS4 or or Style PS for size :)

    I had no idea such a model even existed, the ones I've seen before with pliers have been a little too thick to my liking. That's really cool. (And now I'm getting urges to buy more SAKs just to start modding them.)

    I haven't seen that one before. Most of the SAKs with pliers seem to be loaded with tools but this one has just the basics. Cool find!

    SAK pliers are hard to beat for small task, even more so when it comes in a thin bodied SAK liek this. Whenever I have a splinter, I run to my swisschamp.

    The pliers are cool on the Wenger.

    Nope, a standard but limited number Vic knife :)

    Just the Philips. As far as I know the plier layer never had anything on the back.


    Thanks all.
    It is a nice one... hard to find but ever so useful :D
