Hello!
« on: October 01, 2016, 02:22:18 PM »
Hi there!

I'm Nick, from Belgium, 25yo, alarm technician.

I'd like to say I'm new to this forum, but I'm not!
I visited this place multiple times allready as a guest to get ideas, opinions  and some eye candy from it's users.

Time to give something back perhaps?!

My passion for SAK's and multitools started when I was handed my first SAK from my parents as a child: a Victorinox Sportsman.
It rested in a drawer for some years, 'till I got out of school and started "the grown man's life".
I polished the tools and handles to new-like condition and it now rests on my display as a novelty.


Since then I upgraded my collection over the years with:

- A Gerber Suspension as an EDC work knife, which died on me after 2 drops...
- A Victorinox Spartan with Austrian flag on the scale as a souvenir from Austria (where else?)
- A Victorinox Spartan Translucent light blue.
- A Victorinox Huntsman with camo print
- A Leatherman Charge AL,
- A Victorinox DAK91 (NOS)
- A Victorinox Mountaineer Late 80's from a flea market in newlike condition. The seller asked €4 which made me feel happy for myself, but offended in the knives' place.
- A heavily used Victorinox Swisstool. Craved for one for months untill I found one second hand in terrible condition. Like new after cleaning and polishing.
- Last but certainly not least, my new flagship since today: An unused Swisstool Spirit S Black Oxide!


I hope I can mean something to this wonderfull place with all it's members who, together, give info and details about virtualy anything MT related.

Thank you all!


Sidenote;
I'm in to flashlights and watches as well!

Edit: Just added a pic... so at least I know how to do that now as well.

How could you not?  The Spirit is arguably the most beautiful multitool of them all, and the black coating adds an air of mystery to it.  Very dig-worthy!

Welcome aboard, nice collection already. 

There is Spirit 30 day challenge coming up from what I have understood.

It is a great way to share your use and photo talents!
