The eminently likeable and always cheerful Felix Immler passes along a solution which will work on some SAKs, specifically those models which have the hook as a back tool.

A wonderful tip, those jigsaw blades can do some serious work. Taking suggestions for the best way to safely carry one of those blades.

Method 1

Take an old belt. Cut 2 strips the length you need to cover blade and about 1/4" wider all around. Notch one end so you can grab the blade to get it out. Contact cement around the 3 edges. Stick together and slide blade in. Might open it up with a popsicle stick first so its easier. Same principle as I use for pocket sharpening stones without the stitching.



Method 2 (easier but not as cool)

Take a piece of sew on M/F Velcro and cut it to cover. Peel Velcro, insert blade, close Velcro. What I do with spare Boreal folding saw blades in my pack. Works for spare springs and firing pins in your range bag too!

I wondered about some flexible tubing, sized for a friction fit. I've got storage tubes for individual 18650 batteries but round and kinda big for a single blade. Maybe too short. To check the size of these blades, I'll have to get my jigsaw out, a major PITA and not on today's to-do list.

FWIW, these blades cut on the forward stroke.

Or you could just buy a Fieldmaster or Huntsman if you want both the hook and saw. Smile

That's pretty cool.....and here I have been wondering what in the world am I every going to use the hook for on my Super Tinker.
