- wire crimper, called the “hook thing” and misunderstood by many SAK users – used to bend the end of an electric wire, for example to install a switch or wall plug.
- straight pin, stored under the corkscrew – it’s stainless so can’t be magnetized as a compass as some claim — but separates from the knife, bends into a fish hook
