There were 7 winners.  Hobie was one of them, not sure about the other 6.   But check out this Compact!  :climber:

Hm! Congratulations to Hobie on winning such a quirky one-off SAK! Those things will be worth an absolute fortune one day!
Can't say I was too impressed by Victorinox's choices, however. In Hobie's case they were obviously impressed by the focus of his collection - vintage Saks, but most of the others look like they won cos they owned the most display cabinets. And clearly they weren't interested in aesthetics, just quantity.

Hey SAK Kollectors

Where did the they post the winners and the winning shots/kollections/interviews etc ???

I had a wee look for this on the Vic website recently (including the competition page where you could see the initial entries) and could not find anything

Maybe I'm being dumb or looking in the wrong place   :O

But I'd love to properly check out all the winners - I did see a page about the Chinese guy!

Thanks

PS. Thanks for the link to the Hobie vid El C.

Still bummed about JB not winning   :(

I'm not sure about that info, I'm a hobie subscriber so it was in my YT notifications.

Don't worry, we awl know JB is probably the most legit collector on earth.

My entry was some old, random pic I had on my phone, it took me 3 minuted to participate in that competition. Obviously I didn't win :)

Funny: I can spot 2 or 3 of the actual knives that jazzbass outbid me on.

I tried to enter 3 times but my pic never showed on their site...

I got a "Smurf you then" feeling and moved on.

Buy now or regret later

In Chako's case they probably said, "this guy doesn't need ANY MORE SAKS!"

The whole cabinet is like that, if I'm not mistaken. And it's just one of many cabinets!

If Jazz has one thing against him, it's that his picture looks too professional. Whoever filters the lousy photos from the contenders may wrongly assume that this couldn't possibly be the work of some dude who collects penknives, and that he's trying to pass off some corporate advertising shot as his own.  In which case the picture could be disqualified - which would of course be a huge injustice.

Thanks for the nice comments, guys. I think I had two things go against me. First and most importantly, my picture really only grabs you at high resolutions when you can see all the detail in it. For the context they shrank the images down to (IIRC) something like 600px wide. The original image is 6000px wide and the version I posted here was 2000px, which is the minimum I think you need to get the full effect. Basically they were looking at an images that was about 10% of the size of the the one I posted here and 1% of the original size.

The second issue was the multiple submissions with the boxes and no boxes. I should heave just submitted the no boxes image once and that was it. But with all the confusion of "did it or did it not get posted" I submitted twice, which I think hurt the effort.

In the end it was a fun project for me and I got a great picture out of it. Even got a 36" x 24" print made up that I'm going to frame and hang in my office.

Just now seeing this. What an amazing picture, and the effort to get it was most impressive as well!

Just looking at the pic makes me feel happy :cheers:
