I don't collect SAKs with company logos, sorry. I do have some family members who live near the factory in Goor.

What model is it? Alu tweezers are nice.

Let me join you guys with this recently completed Voyageur mod... Originally wanted to use custom Ti scales but I will reserve it for future builds...



Hopefully some day I can get my hands on the real deal Voyageur...

It’s just a shame Vic discontinued it... We’ve said this before... Vic should listen to us and bring back those 84mm scissors...

There is nothing wrong with mods! In the end you are getting what you want and what better way if its been discontinued or the manufacture hasn’t done it already.  :like: :tu:

Very nice Voyageur, Jaya Man! 

I built one just like this for my brother for Christmas, but I decided to add a keyring.  My thinking was that it's easy to file off if he didn't like it but impossible to add later if he wished he had one. 

The finished assembly:

The finished Voyageur.  I'm still working on making my peened heads look as nice as Jaya Man's!  :)
(The orange glow is from my headlamp.  I built this SAK on Xmas Eve in my garage workshop!)

Me too, Aloha!  I originally set out to build my own Voyageur with a regular bottle opener, but realized upon inspection that you can't build a Voyageur with a regular cap lifter.  It's incompatible with the main blade when they are in the same layer.

It was actually this realization that caused me to abandon the Voyageur as my EDC SAK, and to start building Super Cadets, modifying the can opener into other implements.
