"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!

You should have used “not victorinox” in the title  :rofl:

I once sold an Amefa on eBay, sold it for €40 as a BIN with Best Offer enabled. The title I used was “Amefa KL82 DAK, rare Dutch Army Knife, 1982”.

Mechanickal told me so :facepalm:

The KM87 I received yesterday is a nice improvement over the one I already had!

Thanks  :cheers:

Already sold the old one… for the same price as for which I bought the new one. So for me it's a free "upgrade" from a used KM87 to a mint condition KM87  :woohoo:

Very nice KM87, Glenfiddich!  Mine is more like your previous specimen, but I still like it.  :)

Newest addition is this all new and unused 2010 model DAK in its most complete form:



Not only does it come with box and sheath, it also comes with the box that contained the box!

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.

Thanks, and nice to see another set with a large box!

I knew they existed but since I started collecting I have only seen it three times: mine, yours and one that contained 25 KL92 SAKs, that was two years ago. I then managed to get a couple of the KL92’s but another buyer (Sander K, you probably know him, he used to be very active in collecting and reselling) got the large box.

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'.??

The United States Military has a similar set up that I have always wanted but could never find! Very nice set you have!  :like: :tu:

I really like how you meticulously acquire every single variation of every DAK!  :hatsoff:

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  :D

????????????  :think:

What's the tang stamp??
Considering it probably is a very normal, newer type of tang stamp, I doubt if these are testing models.
