I want in!  Only I loaned my sister my daily carry SI Sunday and may never see it again. For going on 6 years now it's been In my left front pocket, no matter what else I carry. It's a 97. At least the blade is.

If somebody sees my sister, tell her I want my knife back!    :ahhh

Sigh...

Haven’t carried my SI in a long time. It’s put back in its box, replaced by my Pioneer X.

I might just have to dig it back out and live without the scissors.

Nope, it's a totally ordinary Standard Issue.  I don't know if all SI's were made like this, but mine has its year-of-issue (89) stamped on the tang. 




Here's the LL Bean catalog from from mid-80's showing the knife.  I wish the Pioneer/SI were $15.50 today!

Yes, I believe up until 08 (or 07 for Wenger Maybe), after that they kept making them for a few years with no year stamp. 

I've got a '88 nib myself. It's cool that it still has the plate for the waffen kontrol stamp, they stopped stamping them in 88 and eventually lost the little plate  :cheers:

Very interesting, El Corkscrew.  I admit that I've been a Vx snob all my life, but getting this Standard Issue recently has opened my eyes.  I'll be looking for more SI's in the future.
