Great stuff Have any you actually carried these for a while? I'd be interested to know how the scales hold up to some wear and tear.
I have a Mike HORN wenger... One of my nice fixed blades had its horn eaten away by worms, after a few years in storage.. Really sad.
Marius,You mentioned over on your alox thread that you had only been collecting SAKs for a year. I'd say it's been a VERY productive year. Great collection!
Marius i noticed that your knives haven't the keyring and i also noticed that in your red alox thread.Why is that?

Nice knives there!Old picture from me, also.The complete Savana set from the Wenger Star series (already posted by Karl)
Some more horn handles. The three tan knives on the right appear to have a horn-like grain structure, but may be an early plastic like celluloid.
I ordered some of this... Buffalo horn.(Image removed from quote.)and some in Brown, and some camel bone blanks too, so soon I'll have some horn scaled SAKs of my own.
The idea came to me thanks to a post from Reinier.I really love the horn handles in a Swiss knife, and i believe many other members of this forum also love them too.So let's give them the credit that they deserve with posting some photos of them.I only have three Swiss knives with horn handles.A Swisschamp with a old magnifying glass, a old Spartan of 1943 and a old 74mm Cavalier variation.
I like the spartan the exposed rivets really set it off!
