At this very moment a Victorinox DAK KM 87 is for sale on a Dutch online auction site, called Marktplaats ('market place'). Bidding price now is an astonishing € 125.

Today the M 87 was sold for... € 210 ! (~260 dollar...)

Given the rarity I sort of understand.
I'm just glad I only paid about € 15 for mine :D

Different Victorinox logo styles on DAK Spirit S BO. Both multitools are genuine army issue. (See 1st pic)

The 2nd pic shows both sides of the handles of my spare DAK Spirit. It was damaged and then repaired at Victorinox. Now is has a pliers without the Swiss Cross, plus handles with both the old and new style logo's.  :D

A while ago I posted a message about the KL 1993 model with "T01" inscription.
Another Dutch collector has a second one (see pic). He's an retired Dutch Marine who got this T01 many years ago from a Dutch Commando. It was a test model, so the 'T' probably means 'test'.

Here is a DAK model KL 1993 in official wooden gift box. It was supplied to or by the Dutch Army “Landmachtstaf” (Army Staff).
The knife has a gold painted crest and a special wooden gift box with printing “Landmacht. Landmachtstaf” (Army. Army Staff).This “Landmachtstaf” was up to 2005 the Staff organisation of the Dutch Army “Bevelhebber der Landstrijdkrachten (Commander of the Land Forces). In 2005 this staff organisation was abolished.
The tang stamp is the standard DE-GM / 9305297 on one side and ‘Victorinox Switserland’ on the other side. However, the fonts of the latter stamping are rather small, compared with other similar tang stampings.
It is not known wether this special version was made by Victorinox itself or by another company.

Do they all attach the same way on the back? How do they attach?

Jeep the SAK of the auto world or is it SAK the Jeep of the Knife world?

The pouches for the Zwanenburg knife and the ones for the KL 2010 Victorinox knife have straps & snaps.

The pouches for the KL 1993 type knife have belt loops and Alice clips. Made by Arwy NV and by Fosco.

There are also black pouches for the Vic KL 2010 knives. These are used by the Military Police ('Koninklijke Marechaussee') on their black ops vests.
Very hard to get in a descent condition!
