Make a tool idiot proof and someone will make a better idiot. Also, Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

Yes it is nice. I think it is called GeoTech. It is one of several new scale designs just released this year.

Cptnodegard I am in USA. I can't see Vic Europe, and you can't see Vic USA.  All Europe people please try to find this on the Europe site.

Kinda off topic, but how is the MAP for the OTR SwissTool Spirit $164?  :o

While MSRP is the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price and is simply a suggestion, MAP is Minimal Authorized Price - i.e. the cheapest amount that a certain item can be sold for if you still want to do business with said company (applies if you're a reseller/distributor for that company, though there are some unofficial loopholes, thankfully).

Victorinox added MAP about half a year ago now, while other companies, such as Surefire, have been doing it for quite a while longer.

[Edit:  Also, my translation of MAP may be incorrect, so just head's up. :)]

Ohhh.  I thought 164 was MSRP.  At my local Campmor vic compacts are 30$ instead of 46$.  That is what made me think 164$ was MSRP.

I always thought that Vic's site price was MSRB not MAP.

Whoops, you're probably correct, Yud.  Still, it makes me shudder as to how much one would cost at the OTR tour. :/

This looks awesome  :drool:

Rest is not idleness,
and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day,
listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky,
is by no means a waste of time

Reinier, it may sound confusing, but the knife is in the soft grip category, and the picture shows it is translucent.  Some one from vic can probably clear that up.

Yeah, sounds potentially cool... but I keep picturing some sort of jelly-like or slimey goo substance for the handle.

To all not in the USA I can't get you links to the europe, mexico, etc websites.  You will have to find it yourself.  It is not to hard to find.
