No clue on the inlay as i have made a start at cleaning and polishing the front scale   ::)
Scissors and reamer  :tu:

Sorry I never got back to this, Borg!  I need to see the other side of the reamer!  :D  We know it's post 75 and pre 85 so far  :cheers:

I believe that beveled tip of the awl will place it '82 before, and the cross looks like it's stainless steel which would place is post '80

I think you could date this one 80-82.. ish  :)

behind the safety of two Spydeholes, and a body of plastic
and a big chunk of old Hoffriz scales, which look fantastic,
both LEGO minifigures approach the Spyderco sticker,
that just arrived and is aggressive, no doubt it's a critter!

There are some very nice Hoffritz models displayed.  Congrats to the owners.

This is the only one I own.I believe it's a Champ.There wasn't much attention paid to this when it was up for auction,so I took a chance and bid on it.I believe I bought it below its true value but that's just a guess.

Thank you.

Yes it is a Champion.Sorry about the mistake and improper abbreviation.

It is in new condition.The scales are perfect.I added that screwdriver but I believe I will replace it with an older and appropriate round mini-driver.

Love the old Champions,  I've never been a big fan of the Victorinox pliers, I kind of feel like they had too much bulk for the usefulness of the tool.

I've noticed that the older round mini screwdrivers will often fit a lot looser in the corkscrews. It seems like the newer version fits more snuggly and most corkscrews, especially Wenger corkscrews.  But up do understand wanting to put the older version in there for historical accuracy sake.

I think if you paid less than $50 for it, then you got a great deal.  :cheers:

Against the Hoffritz, in futility, fought the brave Pumpkin
but both in taste and in utility, the two were top ranking

A Special Delivery on Sunday...my newest Hoffritz is the Fisherman. Hoffritz scale and blade stamped. The nicest little surprises were the metal head tweezers and the sea horse inlaid is the complete eye and more detailed body.

Yes it is, that’s when I jumped off the fence and hit the buy now button! I don’t know the history of it but I like the Ritz way better.
