The Swisstool got such a wide jaw gap that you can use the cut center opening easy.
Here you see one example on a hot device that you would need a plier for
adjusting or for change.
The SwissTool plier got a wider possibility than the Wenger plier. It is possible to use the tip or front section. There are different
camp chores and tasks that would need a plier to be used as a grabbing or holding device. Remember proper use and prevent the plier getting so warm that the tempering will be damaged. This is usually never any problem because if you use the plier just for
adjusting or grabbing then it is not enough time for the plier steel to get damaged. In the outdoors such a torch is maybe not normal but you never know today.
A plier is an ancient device. A multi-tool with a plier is an evolution anyway because it is made to fit the modern world. The torch is not any device that can be turned without a plier or a key.
The design and hybrid construction of the Victorinox plier is an evolution
on multi-tools. I have touched some factors and aspects. One of the reasons for the shorter and sturdy front section of the plier is because it is a stronger design. It is
obvious that the further towards the front you get the jaw opening are bigger. This then mean that in some situations this section is used. Sometimes a nut or a bolt is in a position that would require you to use the front section anyway. A needle nose design
or a plier may get damaged by such tasks if you have to apply force turning a bolt. It is a big advantage with a shorter and sturdy tip section like I have explained around Sakhome.com. This is why it is an evolution plier.
My testing of the Swisstools is over and i can give special information
if needed. This has taken some years but it is there if you want. I have no need for further testing on SAKs and I hope my information is of help. It is necessary to tests a few tools and SAKs to know what I am talking about. I have shown a few pictures
around Sakhome.com for guide and information. They have been tested far more that the pictures tell.
It is important to know all parts of the SwissTools with
all the functions, plier and construction. It is important to know use, maintenance and durability. The locking mechanism and module must also be understood. With the plier that can be divided into 3 factors are the front section with what I call the hybrid
design and the pipe wrench (cut teeth for bolts and nuts) and the wire cutting areas. I have full knowledge now on all parts on the 1998 and 2002 type plier head. I have also used a 2005 type. I do not have count on how many knives included
SAKs and multi-tools i have tested but it is a good number over the years. This was neccessary and i have had the luck to see a great deal of used and hard used knives over the years. This is important knowledge.
