This was my antique store find the other day. I don't know too much about it except how much of a wonderful knife it is.










I just made the hemp lanyard for it.

It is indeed a champion, but not an original one I don't think  :think:.  I think originally they didn't come with the magnifying glass layer with the phillips, but instead it had the phillips on the backspring that was squared.  I could very well be wrong though, it certainly wouldn't be the first time!  :D

I'm back!!

OK here's what it comes with,



It does have a file and a saw. :P




My next purchase is going to either be a Wenger standard soldier or a Vic farmer

Both the Vic Farmer and the Wenger SI, are both awesome Sak's, the Farmer is the better of the two IMO, but you'll not be disapointed by either :)

Give in, buy several Farmer's!!!!!!

Definitely a champion, but not an original I don't think.

Does it have the pen in the scales?  Also, what is stamped on the main blade?

You can get replacement scales that are called "plus" scales.  These have an added slot for a pen and also a pin which goes near the corkscrew.  Rotokid at sosakonline.com should be able to help you there.

Thanks! Right now I am deciding whether to get the farmer or the soldier...Eventually, I know I'll end up with both. Most of my day now is going to be spent at SOSAK site.

It's just a million foot tower a awesomeness.  :drool:

SOSAK is an awesome site.  :)

Now you're gonna start me and Mike off here with our usual row over which is best, the Wenger SI or the Vic Farmer.  So hopefully before he does, GET THE SI!  :D

Yep got to love Sosakonline :D

I'd go for the Farmer mate, as even if you don't use the saw, the extra layer does make the Farmer fill the hand better, and make it even more comfortable :)
