more Cybertool bits would be great, Do you have the extra bits that the Swisschamp XLT had? I've only been able to source three of them (from Pizzini), still after the extra flat drivers for my CT29:

Indeed I do! Would like more hex sizes, and maybe even a tiny phillips since there's no tiny phillips for the corkscrew (another thing they should make!)

Where did you manage to get the bit with the flat screwdrivers on both ends? I've been having problems tracking that one down, at least from somewhere with sensible postage rates

I wonder if Vic may start to cut back on models that are fairly similar to each other, to consolidate a bit and run a little leaner company. From various comments I've seen concerning Q&A, so many special editions, legal BS being thrown at modders, etc., I get the impression the company is being run more by the accountants than those who actually care about the product.

I don't pay to close attention to all the various cellidor models and sizes since I'm pretty much just a 93mm alox person, but to me it just seems there are a lot of various models that are really close to each other with the exception of perhaps one tool or something like that.

I'd guess they'll do their dozen or two of special ultra collectible different shades of the same color alox runs as well. :)

I have to admit that maybe I'm stuck in the past but Vic really hasn't done anything to get me too jacked up, can't wait to buy, for a long time.

In all fairness, to me personally, as long as they make my trusty Tinker/spartan, super tinker/climber or hiker/camper ill always be happy. Call me traditionalist or old fashioned, but that's just the way it is.   ;)

I would so much like to see alox or similar scales with scale tools and a yeoman in that configuration!

While we are dreaming, I'd like a build your own SAK/special order division. With all tools (past and present)available in 84mm.  :whistle:

I still like that desert soldier, and the national park ones are purdy. The fact that we've already known about all these is par for the course. I actually don't think Victorinox reveals new stuff at SHOT Show, do they?

May it be as the Pattern has chosen.

No way. Everyone would buy the ultimate SAK, and after that sales would drop to near zero.

That was sarcasm. Should have put a smiley after I guess.

Totally agree, nothing new in this video, just regular models with fancy scales. I'm not saying they're not cool, but more good for collectors than for users.
Being mostly a user myself and a die hard fan of the classic cellidor red scaled sak's what I would love to see is actual new models, new tools and tool configurations. As for fancy scales, they should just sell them freely to the public so one buys a regular model and slap some new fancy scales on it if one chooses to. But then again they couldn't charge a collector's item price tag on them.... ::)

I am good with this, I wanted one of the limited edition UK military alox in a similar colour to this, but not the silly price and box that went with them.
I see a user and a shelf queen in my future



*also was it just me or was that video of "new stuff" so last year?

Nice indeed. I'm hoping for models other than the standard Pioneer/Bantam/Classic however.
