    Default Ideal SAK?

    What's your ideal SAK, whether it be one already manufactured, or something you would like to see added, etc? Why?

    I Love my "Farmer"! I have purchased extras for the grandkids I will have some day!

    Maybe I should get some more for the great grandkids? Jeff

    I think I'm with Iz on this one. The SAK Farmer is pretty dern close to ideal for me, but if they made one like that with the pocket clip and a carbon steel convex blade I'd still buy it.

    EDIT: oh yeah, liner lock would be *awesome* if they could fit one in the SAK. I dislike non locking blades about as much as I like my fingers

    I did see someone a while back that had posted a thread where they used a glue-on pocket clip meant for a handgun on their SAK, so I guess the pocket clip could be worked around

    EDIT: Found it, it was solocanoe's post with a "clipdraw" clip added to his SAK Farmer.

    SAK Farmer....Love it. If it had a belt clip, even better. Carbon convex would be sweet too, but its not a big deal for me. Im fond of the steel they use. Worked well for me for many many years.

    My current favorite is the SAK Camper. I like that it's really light and thin enough to stay in the pocket comfortably. I much prefer having a corkscrew over the phillips, as the corkscrew is great at getting stubborn knots undone and the can opener already functions as a phillips anyway. I often take this knife with my Wetterlings hatchet and the two work great together.

    To be a true bushcrafter you must own a farmer! Seriously it's a very versatile tool. Has all you need and none of the BS. Plus he aluminum scales are tougher then the plastic ones. It's about perfect for my needs, and I have owned a few SAKs in my day.

    ideal one would be medium blade, small blade, screw driver, can/bottle opener, sawblade, scissors, awl/reamer, magnifying glass, toothpick, and REAL tweezers. i hate the flat tips, and have ground most of mine to a point. would be nice to have a better quality set included.

    what i've got that's closest is the Huntsman.

    i have little use for the corkscrew, phillips driver, and 'hook', that came with some of my knives (a Classic, a Tinker, and a Champ).
