This guy knows...
Dude is just all over the house/garage looking for things to hook lol
Back in the day we used them to pull the cotton ball out of pill bottles
I (almost) felt discriminated for not having a hook on any of my SAKs, but then I remembered that I do almost all of those things with my fingers. But then again, they don't bend like string cheese when I'm opening a (beer) can...
Ok, I have the vaguest of memories that there is something specific to the K-31 that the hook is specifically meant for. But, hanged if I can remember what.
Try tightening your hunting boot laces.
i have used it in one weird way, when i was 13 i was out rabbit hunting. it was about 10 degrees out. shot 2 that day. when i was unloading my 10-22, i dropped the mag. it landed on a rock, right on the rim of the 22 round in the mag. that round when off, i check all was ok. when i got home, got my boots off and it was full of blood. the 22 when thru my jeans, and about 1/2 inch in to my leg. just right of my kneecap. i did not even feel it. the year before i had a bad bicycle wreck and cut that same spot. i needed 30 some stitches the cut was 6 inches long.
the reason i did not feel the bullet was that area is always numb even today. and it was so cold my legs were numb to. i used that hook to pick the bullet out. seams to have a million and one uses.
It was for grabbing the bundle string around a package and using the the rest of the knife as a handle to carry it.
That's what I had heard as well.
I've owned 6-8 SAK's over the years. The hook is news to me. Never seen one with that feature.
They work well for a handful of plastic grocery bags. Until they banned them here, that is.
Mine came in handy the last time i was required to do an impromptu mummification on a pharaoh. Its a bit short for getting ALL of the brains out, but the Inox was a snap to clean up.
Gutting small birds?
I thought it was a package hook, to carry packages tied up with twine. Not as much use for that anymore, of course.
It's a lace hook, for lace-up ice skates and ski boots.
They ARE Swiss after all.
It is a parcelhook, but it obviously has a myriad of other uses.
I hope this link isn't verboten, but Blade Forums had a thread on this at one time. https://bladeforums.com/threads/a-mysterious-sak-tool.1467175/
I've heard it is for tightening shoe/boot laces
