Daily Customs Swiss Army Knife Handle Installation Instructions
Daily Customs German-made Swiss Army Knife replacement handles transform your standard everyday carry into a unique collectible that's up for any task. They can be installed easily with an adhesive (such as 2-part epoxy) and a pair of clamps.
A Few Notes Before You Begin:
- Modifying your Swiss Army Knife in any way, including installing Daily Customs handles, may void the manufacturer warranty.
- Model 91.2 and 58.2 scales do NOT include slots for toothpick or tweezers. Model 91.2+ and 58.2+ scales DO have this feature.
- These handles can be applied to Swiss Army Knives which originally had plastic handles. Victorinox Alox handles can not be removed and replaced.
What You'll Need:
- Swiss Army Knife with plastic handles
- Set of Daily Customs handles
- Sharp implement for removing plastic handles
- Sand paper
- Adhesive such as 2-part epoxy
How to Apply Daily Customs Scales to Your Swiss Army Knife
- Remove the pen, tweezers, toothpick, and any other tools from the original handles of your Swiss Army Knife.
- Use a sharp object to carefully lever the plastic scales off of your Swiss Army Knife.
- Clean the surface of your knife with a fat-soluble detergent, and let it dry completely. For best results, lightly sand the surface to give the adhesive more purchase.
- Double-check to ensure the Daily Customs scales fit snugly. When applying pressure, there should not be any clearance. If you have 91.2+ or 58.2+ DC scales, ensure the toothpick and tweezers fit into the recesses as expected.
- Screw the enclosed screws into the threaded holes on the back of the DC scale.
- Carefully apply adhesive on the inside of the DC scales, avoiding the slots for the toothpick, pen and tweezers if you have the 91.2+ or 58.2+ model.
- Press your Swiss Army Knife onto the Daily Customs scales.
- Clamp the scales in place to ensure light, constant pressure.
- Keep your knife and scales clamped until the adhesive is completely dry. We suggest waiting longer than recommended by the adhesive's manufacturer.
- If you have used the Loctite 2-Part Epoxy suggested, you can remove any that has squeezed out from between the handle and the knife once it has dried.
