Thanks. It sounds similar then to the older, finer, 91mm metal file in use and effect.
I see the combo tool as a #0 to #2 Phillips with a passable cap lifter if you need it. It's a well thought out tool for low torque usage. The extra weight and thickness over the Classic is negligible.
Kind of liking the Spidey blade there. My one gripe about the 58mm blade is that it flexes when cutting some items like 6mm diameter hoses that I feel no small blade should be bothered by.
I have to say "kind of liking the Spidey blade" because I don't like the protruding hump it makes, common to many OHO blades.
I just don't like bottle openers because I don't drink and would rather the cap lifter wasn't there.
I have lots of things that incorporates a cap lifter and I'm fine pretending it's not there when theres no good alternative to said knife or multitool, but won't trade something without a cap lifter for one with it if what I've currently got works for me.
If you ground the hook off the caplifter, it wouldn't look like one any more.
The Spydie blade is pretty small for on hand opening, but it’s quite fast 2 handed because of the hole and the protrusion.
The old file cuts in one direction. The new file smears in both directions.
My vote was other - I find the Ambassador to be the perfect companion to the larger single blade knife I always carry. I carried the Classic for years but the slightly larger Ambassador is about perfect for me.
However, I've got bigger SAKs in the vehicles and the main requirement for those is a corkscrew. I honestly couldn't tell you what models they are as I've had all of them for years. They also have the magnifying glass tool.
I think I've washed and dried my Recruit at least 3 times. Scales are slightly loose, but they stay on.
I doubt if anything like loose scales could happen to its cousin the Cadet.
You might consider the Manager. It's a Rambler with a pen.
Admittedly I mostly carry my Pioneer X these days.
I think the Rambler would be better as a 78mm.
The Cadet and the Pioneer X are the only SAKs I carry. They can do most anything. But, we still need a CADET X!
