The heavy functionality can be found on the 91mm but also on the 111mm category. The WorkChamp is an example on this. You will always find special models and such. The WorkChamp on the picture is
the slide-lock model. Today you will find it with the liner-locking construction. The very good thing with these 111mm models is the fact they have not gone past the functional use for the hand. In many ways it resembles some of the abilities which the SwissChamp
got. What is very different is the total selection, knife blade and wood-saw. You also have a locking blade which makes a big difference for many.
To compare the Classic models
and gentleman pocket knives with these two mentioned SAKs is impossible. It is about picking the correct tool for you. The big advantage with the SAKs that got the heavy functionality can be many. You do not have to worry about your EDC that you have enough
tools with you. EDC can be many things and many got the minimalistic idea with this and would prefer the Spartan, Climber or such for their need. Which is a good thing for sure. I really enjoy learning and researching on the web about what SAKs people like
the best. I also enjoy very much to learn about all the good things people use their knives for. Correct use and all the good things around it. This is probably my favorite research to do.
the picture above you can see some parts from much damaged SAKs I collected which i used for further study and knowledge. I never do any destruction tests on my SAKs. I love to collect SAKs that never seen any use in original box. It is necessary to collect
some that have seen use too. In general they are usually very nice. Tools are made for use so it is possible to gather knowledge from this as well. To learn about the Swiss quality and also use Swiss Army Knives whenever the chance arrive!
It’s been a long process with well over 15 years.
It can be a step up process with the constant quality development to be aware about. When you have the liner-locking edition of the WorkChamp you have the stronger philosophy. For the eye it could be small differences but
in reality you have a stronger design. I know I have mentioned many times how the slide-lock category came to be. Basically it is a larger locking blade with a bigger philosophy. It is not a weak design. Basically the liner-locking category represents the
professional category with SAKs.
