Thought I'd share this here. Got it a few weeks back. I believe this would be the first incarnation of the Explorer, notice the blank back tang.  Pretty neat.  :tu:
Nice find El C!  :like:

You could say I'm a fan.
My first ever Sak is the grey mag explorer vintage 1989 (I think).

I replaced the scales on the rest with plus scales.

I just got my second recently. It was purchased as part of a '$10 Challenge'.

My review of the tool.

It's in pretty awesome shape for the price.

it was full of stinking greasy mud when I got it, and I had to replace the scales (which I got from Syph007), but it cleaned up VERY well. $10 and some elbow grease and now it's pretty awesome.

That little mag glass gets useful and handy. I don't even wear glasses, but find use for it. And with a straight philips, in my mind the explorer is great!

It's pretty, but I'm glad I didn't pay the full pre-Christmas price for it!

The mag glass and inline Phillips are really worth it!
