The 93mm pioneer x model is a popular choice, but users have always lamented the loss of scale tools found on the plastic scaled models. Traditionally this size SAK does not have scale tools such as toothpick/tweezers. I have developed a solution to remedy this by designing a fold out drawer to contain these tools. This is my own original design and the drawer is machined from solid Ti-6-4 stock and uses the natural spring of Titanium as the retention mechanism. I went though many iterations to get this option dialed in, and it works flawlessly.
Simply use a fingernail to press on the retention notch and the drawer can be opened to reveal the scale tools. It's easily possible to fit other small items of similar size such as needle and thread or pins, to customize the available tools in this hidden drawer. I have tried many different types of texture and finish of Titanium scales over the years and Ive settled on this diamond pattern with tumbled finish as a good all around balance between non slip and not too aggressive of a texture. The cross is also titanium and I polish that after tumble to get some contrast.
Modifications - Stock alox scales have been replaced by custom made Ti-6-4 scales. Scales have been CNC machined with diamond texture - Stock nickel silver liners have been sanded and edge polished - The front scale has a fold out drawer to house the scale tools - Stock toothpick and tweezer heads have been thinned to allow them to fit in drawer - Stock pen has had plastic nub removed. The standard Nickel silver rivets have been replaced with 0.125 hardened steel pivots, and T6 torx screws - Weight as shown is exactly 100 grams. My name is Robert Lessard and I have been customizing SAKs for over 6 years now, with well over 1500 custom swiss army knife builds under my belt.
