Blue 84 mm scales with the vintage awl, shackle and exposed rivets. Has anyone seen those before? Very unusual http://www.ebay.com/itm/390434589546
Very interesting. No chance that the Climber could be a fake? Looks original but at the same time some small details do not appear completely right to me (the places the nail cutouts are, the shapes of the opener tools, the tang of the corkscrew, etc). 100% original?
By the way, I had never seen a SAK with the long nail file ánd the lobster claw type opener before. Very cool.Francis, who was it that outbid me?
Those unusual blue pinned-thru scales (w/ T&T)-- do you figure they are metal, - or plastic?Never heard of metal scales with T&T (except maybe sterling silver), and cellidor other than red is first mentioned by Victorinox in 1974 - a couple decades after invisible pins.
Oh and have you ever seen an F236 fmaU?

Well I'm happy it went to a good home. Now polish it, scales and tools and let's see some awesome pictures.Are you going to be able to fix the shield? I know you have to be very careful with the type of adhesive one might use on these scales.
I have what I believe is a F236 fma (no 'u' as that indicates a bail) with blue handles. Congratulations on your win; that's an interesting looking knife which I thought would go for much more.
