thx :)
red is brand new -bought it years ago at a knife store-
green has seen its worn spring changed by Victorinox a few moths ago,
silver is in pretty good shape
the wengerinox has its spring broken right after the central rivet (but it's so old, I don't think Vic can do anything about it)

A candid snap of my two of my best friends from the continent.

Once a cat burglar, a master among jewel thieves...
And now, a professional bodyguard - primitive, savage, in love with danger."  - T.H.E CAT

Since I've got my birth year SAK '71 Vic. Soldier from Syem  :hatsoff: I'm really tempted to use it.
I like the bulky can opener with wire stripper and the more straight/thicker blade etc.
I've managed to put a nice edge on it and used it one day for my Apple at work.
But I'm just too worried to scratch anything on it.
Even the drivers are pristine... so it went back into the SAK/MT tool chest  ::)

Naturally I was looking for another one to EDC. But I couldn't find a nice enough '71 again, so I jumped on a very nice '81 instead... and it arrived today  :ahhh

It's un-used, like new... and I'm afraid but this one will be used...  >:D

Thanks, Ray!  They're both 'classics' in their own right.  :hatsoff:
