A quintet from a lucky ebay-find - together with a bunch of junk SAK knockoffs and beat-up utility knives I noticed a few worthy pieces in a lot, namley two Vic Executives, a Camper, a 85 mm Wenger that looked like a Teton, a purple Classic and an "Esquire".

When opening the package, it turned out that one of the Executives' main blade was bent, but the other was in nice condition, the "Teton" turned out to be a Safari and the "Esquire" a Crusader with LED back scale. After a good soaking and thourough cleaning most of them are pretty good, the Camper, the Safari, the Classic and one of the Executives are "like new". The Executive got shiny new scales on, the Safari and the Camper got used but nice ones, this how they look now, after some TLC.

My brother just stopped by and was doing some yard sales while riding his bike. He had texted me and asked what I thought...they were asking $25 but went down to $20...after talking with me, he held out all the money he had and they said ok...$17.00...my jaw dropped when he told me the story as I was checking it out...its in great shape. As I handed it back to him, he said happy birthday...(it is in February)...the Golfer...in like new condition...

Normal for him really, but we have been going to Top Golf and he is wanting to buy a set of clubs so I figured this one was for him! So he got me there!  :cheers:

I was gifted this swisslite yesterday


Needs a clean and oil, but here’s my problem. Reading some older forum posts I understand there are two different batteries depending if it’s red or white led. This battery is too corroded to read a type number. Anyone able to tell me which one I need?

I just received a Ranger that was in very good shape but the scales were a bit scuffed so I did a little cleaning and changed the scales!  Now it is ready for duty!  :)

Thx.  Since I didn't have that color currently on any other sak's, I thought it would go good on the Ranger!  I was thinking about using a set of translucent white ones but then if I dropped it in the snow I would be SOL til Spring!  :)
