someone of you already saw the pilot episode of the new MacGyver, I think the intro climber uses a model and in chapter 1 climber also
|Posted by: sneto 28 September 2016 - 07:47 AM|
but I think that at the beginning uses the model spartan

In the Rising, MacGyve seems to use a victorinox 2 layer and 3 layer knives.
|Posted by: Makoto 28 September 2016 - 05:37 PM|
2 layer knife.

|ok used climber and spatan model|
|Posted by: Barry Rowland 29 September 2016 - 12:55 AM|
|Love both models, but the Climber has to be close to being the ultimate pocketable SAK! Thrilled that the new Mac is still using traditional models in the new show!!|

| Discussions and identifications on the SAK's used in episodes of the MacGyver reboot.
|Posted by: KiwiTek 29 September 2016 - 03:15 AM|
| In the bomb truck scene they switched from a 3-layer (which had the scissors to cut the bomb wire) to a 2 layer for cutting the canopy to make the parachute.

| Hello everyone, new member here. I just signed up because, beside being a long-time Macguyver buff, I wanted to participate in this discussion. I am into pocket knives and posted about this on a similar thread on a swiss army knives forum, so I thought I'd share with you folks.
In the second episode we see Mac using a sak 5 times: 4 times while in Venezuela and 1 time back in LA, towards the end.
I spent a bit of time analyzing screen captures and here is what I found:
In the last scene, the one in LA, Mac is using a Climber.
In the second scene featuring a sak (the one where he's taking the cameras off the wall) he's using a Fieldmaster (or possibly, but unlikely, a Mechanic or Tinker Deluxe).
In the 3 remaining scenes he's using a Camper.*
As a side note, I noticed Mac keeps his sak in his pants change pocket (you can see it sticking out), which I think is cool. Anderson kept it in his back pocket, if I remember correctly.
*I am not 100% sure about the first scene, where he's opening the elevator door. It's most likely a Camper (also since he's using a Camper shortly after), but it could be a Climber instead.

|Welcome to MacGyver Online shadowrider! And thanks for the info.|
|Posted by: Barry Rowland 2 October 2016 - 11:30 PM|
|Welcome aboard and great observation!!|
|Posted by: Danjo1 5 October 2016 - 10:20 AM|
| In the original series, Mac carried his SAKs in various places: right front pocket, back pocket, shirt pocket, coat pocket, etc.
This also adds to my personal (and totally unofficial) belief that Mac carried at least two SAKs on him at all times. They have a saying in the military "Three is two, two is one, one is none" when referring to equipment. If one is broken/lost/stolen, then there is at least one backup. Mac was always forward thinking, and I'm sure that he would have carried two (or more) SAKS on him in various pockets (hence the different places he carried them in the original show) with different features on them. This also helps me suspend disbelief in that the reason that he always seemed to have just the right tool on his knife on him.
Thanks for the info on the knives used so far everyone!

|combined two posts for clarity.|
|Posted by: Barry Rowland 5 October 2016 - 10:52 AM|
|I always carried mine in my left front pocket until I watched Mac pull his from his back pocket. I gave it a try and I like it better! It gives you more room to carry that Classic with the scissors and still have the Tinker/Spartan with the bigger tools. Live and learn I guess!|
|Posted by: shadowrider 5 October 2016 - 11:02 AM|
For me, the trouble with the back pocket is that the knife doesn't sit there straight, but tend to turn and lie horizontally, making it unconfortable.
I've actually thought about modding some pants to avoid this.
|Posted by: Barry Rowland 7 October 2016 - 07:30 PM|
|I agree with that. That's about the only downside to that carry that I can think of.|

| EPISODE 3
This episode's knives were a bit complicated to identify, due to different knives being used in the same scenes. But here it goes.
Mac uses his SAK a total of 7 times throughout the episode:
1- making body bag buffers (gambit)
UNIDENTIFIED 3 (maybe 4) layers knife
2- making a directional antenna
3- applying credit card to wound
NOTE: Mac is using this knife to open the car door panel and strip tape from the cable. However, a few seconds before he starts doing this, as he picks up a bottle of hand sanitizer, he is shown holding a 3 layer SAK (while the Ranger has 5), with the cap lifter folded out. Was this part of some deleted scene?
4- making a smoke bomb
5- performing an intercostal chest drain procedure
(5.1)- First, Mac strips the van back seat using a CAMPER (which is a 3 layers SAK).
(5.2)- After that, when Mac is cutting the guy's chest, he's using an unidentified SAK which appears to have 2 layers.
(5.3)- Then, when pulling the valve from the car tire, he's holding an unidentified SAK with 3 layers.
(5.4)- Right after that, when he's cutting the wiper tube, he's again using a CAMPER (or possibly a CLIMBER).
(5.5)- Follows a split screen scene of the tire valve being fitted in the tube:
((5.5A))- Upper half screen shows the awl being used, in an unidentified knife that has a corkscrew and looks like having 2 or 3 layers.
((5.5B))- The lower half screen shows SAK pliers being used. This knife cannot be the same one used on the upper half screen scene (nor in 5.2), since the only 3 layers SAKs with pliers don't have a corkscrew (and there are no 2 layers SAKs with pliers).
6- turning a ballpoint pen into a syringe
NOTE: just before tinkering with the ballpoint pen, Mac is stirring water and he appears to be doing so with a SAK metal saw. I'm assuming it's the same SAK he uses a few seconds later, the RANGER, when he uses its metal saw on the ballpoint pen.
7- making gas masks
UNIDENTIFIED 2 or 3 layers knife

But I do not understand Spanish.

|Posted by: sneto 14 October 2016 - 08:39 PM|
|in the 4 episode wear deluxe tinker victorinox|
|Posted by: shadowrider 15 October 2016 - 09:50 AM|
| EPISODE 4
1- fitting a laptop battery to some device
2- cutting flour bags
SPARTAN or TINKER
|Posted by: Riddick 18 October 2016 - 06:42 PM|
I love Levis jeans because the change pocket is big enough to carry a SAK in it. If I'm not wearing jeans, I'll keep it in my front pocket while sitting, and then move it to my back pocket when I'm walking. The only reason I do that is so my car keys don't scratch it up in my front pocket.
|Posted by: Barry Rowland 18 October 2016 - 11:36 PM|
|That's a good way to do it too. I keep gravitating to the 3 layer SAKs which can be a tight fit in the change pocket for me (or just a sign my middle aged body isn't what it used to be!! ).|
|Posted by: sneto 22 October 2016 - 05:55 AM|
| I. The new episode toothpick i think uses a deluxe tinker and climber model
|Posted by: sneto 29 October 2016 - 11:27 AM|

|Posted by: Barry Rowland 30 October 2016 - 09:01 PM|
|I'm thrilled to see Mac use a larger SAK, especially an Evo. I've always thought Mac would be at his best with all those tools at his disposal|
|Posted by: sneto 13 December 2016 - 01:44 PM|

|Posted by: denizen 16 February 2017 - 07:54 PM|
| I sure am.
If its anything i like about the new series, its the choice of other knives being used. Especially the larger ones.
|Posted by: Barry Rowland 16 February 2017 - 10:19 PM|
|I agree Denizen!|
|Posted by: DashboardOnFire 17 February 2017 - 01:00 AM|
I have to admit that despite being Swiss, I don't know much about SAKs *blush*...

|Me too, but I have to say Climber is my favorite!|
|Posted by: Jediferret 19 August 2017 - 06:06 AM|
| I like my Spartan. lol
Though, my Dad prefers the small pocket knives. He's always kept one in his pocket, long before MacGyver came about. He said it's the best tool he's ever had, and he never needed anything more. I got a small one for my sister, but hers has a flash drive on it. He liked that one. XD
I mean, a SAK with a flash drive is brilliant! Why doesn't the new MacGyver have one? Or better yet, why doesn't he give one to Riley? =P
|Posted by: DashboardOnFire 19 August 2017 - 07:35 AM|
Yes. I remember that after the news about the MacGyver Reboot hit, we joked about MacGyver having an SAK with flash drive. Doesn't make sense he wouldn't have one; especially one with a preinstalled programme to delete all the programmes on the computers of the villains.
As a modern secret agent, you never know when you come across data you have to make disappear
|Posted by: Barry Rowland 19 August 2017 - 05:17 PM|
|I wonder if this season we might see him with one? I'm just thrilled he is still using a SAK!|
|Posted by: DashboardOnFire 20 August 2017 - 08:03 AM|
Uhm.... there would haven been riots and pitchforks in the streets if he didn't
|Posted by: Barry Rowland 21 August 2017 - 04:21 AM|
|Absolutely... I would have led the charge Dash!!|
|Posted by: MacGyver85 21 August 2017 - 01:22 PM|
|Right behind you Barry!|
|Posted by: DashboardOnFire 11 October 2017 - 06:45 AM|
| So, they DO advertize the SAKs, but they're just the normal models that were "approved" by MacGyver. Doesn't look like there's a logo on it or anything.
Several pictures of the different models on here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BaHB1OuH3xl/
|Posted by: DashboardOnFire 11 October 2017 - 06:47 AM|
|I guess only the red ones are approved by MacGyver|
|Posted by: Barry Rowland 11 October 2017 - 04:48 PM|
|I never knew Mac did endorsements 😀!!|
|Posted by: denizen 11 October 2017 - 07:53 PM|
|You were saying?|
|Posted by: Makoto 13 January 2018 - 06:15 AM|
| I think that in the episode Toothpick first macgyver uses 3 layers knife with tweezers and corkscrew, no multipurpose hook,perhaps Camper.
Second macgyver uses screwdriver, Explorer and Deluxe Tinker
Third macgyver uses 4 layers knife reamer with pliers, Deluxe Tinker.
