"It's a very good investment."...I am not so sure. Yesterday I sold by auction on Ebay a near perfect Amefa KL 81. Highest bid was at only $ 11.50.That knife I bought myself a while ago for about $ 19, so this one was definitely not a good investment!
It is a great example!

Very nice KM87, Glenfiddich! Mine is more like your previous specimen, but I still like it. (Image removed from quote.)
Newest addition is this all new and unused 2010 model DAK in its most complete form:(Image removed from quote.)Not only does it come with box and sheath, it also comes with the box that contained the box!
Boxception Did it come with the instructions/papers in Dutch?(Image removed from quote.)
Nice set indeed!The larger box is rarely seen, because most of the time the soldiers order their knives from the computerized armed forces logistics order system. They get only the knife in its small box plus the manual, while the larger box stays at the armed forces warehouse (and where it will be thrown away when it's empty).Here's mine.
Ah, the guy with seven Marktplaats aliases and 42 eBay accounts
Jup, that’s him
Here are the three slightly different types of Victorinox Spirits for the Dutch Army.Left one has a 2005 dated manual; middle one a 2013 dated manual; right one has a 2017 dated manual.It is a small enigma, because the most recent one -at the right side- has an old type logo with a 'cross-less' pliers.
Dutch Army line worker set with Knipex pliers, "Richard Abr. Herder' knife and 'Agora' leather sheet.Who knows something about the leather pouch which is stamped 'AGORA'.??
Today I found a unusual print in a "KL 93" DAK.This type of knife is rather common, but I have never seen one with this extra imprint. Seems to me that it is factory done.Does anyone know the meaning of "T01" ??
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'.
I wonder how many of these test-models were made. Yesterday I received this one with T56 (Image removed from quote.)
