Classic Collectors out there?
« on: May 26, 2016, 08:03:23 AM »
Hi, are there any link minded classic collectors out there the collect the different classics out there.

There seem to be more and more each year so I try to stay away form the advertising ones.

Hi Chako, it is a good thing these are Bijous otherwise I would have to add them to my wish list, very nice though.

I should have the full rock knife series coming soon.

I also have the newer set...its just a matter of finding the photos amongst my thousands of photos that span several albums on Photobucket.

Found it.





Digging for more photos...





















The top ones are mostly Classics.



And one nobody can ID...not a Classic though.



And a better photo of that gold one.

WOW Dan i am truly blown away, your collection is amazing.
I love the silver range, I have not really ventured there yet.
And the wood handels you showed I have never ever seen them or the semi precious stones for that matter.

I see I still have a long way to go to get anywhere near your collection.

I recently discovered the Japanese models and boy do they have a lot, mostly brand related but very nice designs, I'm still hunting for a lot of them.

You certainly have a lot of different ones I do not have. I am a generalist collector though...so I tend to have a little bit of everything. Can't wait to see your collection grow in the future. Be sure to post photos for us here. We do like photographs of SAKs.  :tu:

Folks around here tend to be enablers as well.  :D

Just thought I would share some additions to my collection of Victorinox Classics, these should not be that common.

While my group of Classics pales in comparison to some of the collections shown here, here are my 7 Classics.

Photo quality is a bit lacking, maybe I'll be able to shot some better pictures down the road.

Vic Ranger and original Gerber Needle-nose Multitool = EDC
Formerly, Vic Huntsman x3

My pocket knife collection counts some 150 pieces, roughly one third of them SAKs. They're more than enough for a lifetime of use. Yet I keep buying more and more, albeit at a leisurely pace (my collection took me some 30 years). Currently, the 58mm SAKs get special attention. My latest are a LE Classic "Rainforest walk" and a silver alox Minichamp (not shown).
