One of my favorite Vic knives is the 108mm real stag hunter.
With some sandpaper you can make a faux stag hunter look like american elk. It looks and feels good, in my opinion.

another old GAK,
this got the saw shield on, still no file-field, however if you look on the mainblade on this one see what is not rare to find, its been sharpened with a electrical grinder or smergel, this is not good for the temper on the steel :) i have restored such a damaged blade before and to my surprise it was usable :)

Yea, it should. No one mentioned it had to be a Vic. Just 108mm :D

Here's a Mil-Tek GAK with pliers. A gift form 50ft Trad.

The tool is well designed but the execution is terrible. The ergonomics are good but there is quite some play in the pliers which hinders the wire cutting ability. I should probably re-peen all the pins to fix the play in the tools (the peening appears to be made made. ) I tested the saw this summer in the big SAK and multitool saw test (posts throughout the Anyone edc a 108mm? thread) and I was very disappointed by it's performance. It looks like a cool tool on paper, but I wish a bit more attention would have been given to the fit an finish of the end product.

I only have 2 solo's at the moment but one feature I love is the vinyl slip case. Victorinox need to provide these with more of their knives.

Same old for me. Got in the meantime a Swiss Shark as well but did not take yet pics of him. Some of his earlier brothers pictured here. I am still looking for a 3 bladed +B custom and maybe a Walther and a Fireman if the chance will appear.

A Solo and a back-up one. Mainly for food prep but also a utility knife. I wish they came in alox scales >:D too but that might be scary I think  :angel:

I recently acquired one sole and then, a month later, another one! Loved them. Very ergonomic and great blade. I must confess I found it a bit harder to sharpen than the regular 91mm blades. Is the steel different?
I got my second because I found out they ran out of production. I suppose two is enough for a life, right?? LOL One to use and the other as a back-up ;)
