Looks like it might work as a flathead also?
It would work in a pinch... Unless it was a screw that was a small screw with full slot across it probably wouldn't work very well as its thin.
-If that makes any sense.
I dont have one to look at but it looked like a driver. Wouldn't be a deal breaker but would be nice. I'm just impressed to see a saw on such a small knife.
If you want I can take a comparison picture tonight of the drivers on the Pioneer, Cadet (non-combo tool), and walker.
The only real difference between the normal driver and the combo is the shape on the inside. It's more hook like so it can be used as a can opener, but I believe the length and width of the driver blade is the same. I've also be told that it can be used on philips head screws at a 45° angle.
The early Alox Lumberjacks had a standard caplifter before the combo tool was developed. All of the cellidor versions l’ve seen had the combo tool.
Well I take it back, the combo tool is thinner and narrower than the cadet which is thinner and smaller than the pioneer.
Agree... Like I stated above it will work in a pinch. I EDC a Tinker and use it quite a bit so I have become pretty familiar with the Victorinox classic standby tools.
Ether way, hard to go wrong with the walker as a pocket carry compliment to a good fixed blade when in the bush.
Picked one of these up the other day so thought the thread was worth a bump
As an aside I found pics of the original 50's version - for some reason I'm preferring both the exposed pins and the position of the nail nick on these much more
Gah, that is exactly the SAK I've been wanting.
me too - just have to rewind 50 years
I really like mine, but not as a primary blade. I think it the perfect spare/ backup blade. Goes perfect in my hunting pack as a spare, or in my possibles pouch when out playing in the woods.
I EDC a multi tool most of the time, and it doesn't feel right not having one when in the woods so I usually reach for that prior to a pocket knife.
With that said I think I am going to integrate my farmer into more frequent pocket carry and the walker is going to be my spare that rides in the kit.
So I've got two of them and the only thing that (apart from the lack of awl I knew before of course) annoys me (even though just a bit) is that the combo tool is not closing with the SNAP I'm used to with my Vics. It's touching the blade during closing and so it won't click into place. That's with both of them Walkers.
Another shocking thing ... one of them came DULL as !@#$%! It was literally the first time I received a dull Vic.
Nice knifes anyway!
