1. The official use is as a package hook, to turn your knife into a handle that will help you to carry a parcel that is wrapped in string.

2. Similarly, you can use to carry heavy plastic bags. Normally when a plastic bag is heavy, the handles become thin and carrying it for a long distance will hurt your fingers since the plastic handle will dig into your fingers. You can use the hook to grab the heavy plastic bag.

3. On my compact I can use it to hold the pen when writing. It is much more comfortable to use that way. Refer to this YouTube Video.

4. As a fishing aid it is extremely useful. You can hook it through a fish's jaw and carry the fish like a strung parcel.

5. It can also be used for grabbing wire wrapped hay bales, so you don't cut into yourself.

6. You can also hook the bail of a cook pot to lift it on or off a camp fire.

7. Check also this YouTube Video as well wink.gif

8. Additionally, on my Compact knife it also has a nail file on its back. Refer to the image below (bottom hook).

If anyone else knows of another practical use, you are welcome to build on this discussion... thumbsup.gif

It truly amazes me when people discover so many uses for a single tool on a SAK. It makes it that much more useful.

I will never see that hook the same way again!!!

Although I wouldn't recommend trying it, one could use the multipurpose hook as a handle on an improvised zip line to escape from some bad guys. surprise.gif

All of my SAKs are too old to have the hook, but my son has a Swisschamp and got a real kick out of this! An old friend of mine says they were used to cinch up laces on boots.

Here's a very another video that show a huge amount of uses for the hook. The truth is that once you start down this path you realize that this one tool can truly be a extension of your mind's will upon the physical world, and isn't that a huge part of what MacGuyvering is all about?

Your mind like your SAK works best when it's opened up.

Since my last post on this thread, I've picked up a few with the hook, and it's amazing what you can do! That video really opens the possibilities up!! thumbsup.gif
