I'd get one of these, except it has no hook.  :facepalm:
For me, under 74mm is fine, any bigger and it better have the hook if it includes scissors.  ::)
Stupid reason I know, but that's the way it is.  :ahhh

I'm on the lookout now for a red pioneer. :dd:

Hooked, like everyone else. :D

I was thinking of opener as including screwdrivers and such.  :think:
But I suppose a more narrow definition of opener makes it fit after all.  :tu:

Master Opener.  :like:

On the bad side, another subject, this Master Opener is making me want a Pioneer now.  :facepalm:
I can get a silver one on Amazon, but I was thinking of a red pioneer. What do you think? Where can I get one?

Hooked, like everyone else. :D

.... Don't think so Doug - Didn't Def say earlier in this thread that it is one hundred and only one hundred of these ....
You are correct on both counts, but it was also a minimum of 100 for Victorinox to make them for us........   

Ah - Got it Doug - Thanks - You were sayng that was the minimum we would be able to order from Vic.


Hey Folks - Just thinking - If anyone is expecting these before Christmas - I think they should lower their expectations......
The order is only due to be placed next week
Vic then have to make them - Production Lead Time .... And we have already heard that things move slowly at Vic
They then have to ship to Canada - International Shiping
Then Def has to pick, pack, and ship 80-100 orders all over the world - More International Shiping

Can see all this completing before Christmas !! Certainly not to Oz !!   :(

If you look back through the thread I think you might be surprised to find the order was placed last week anf Def is trying to have it expadited.  The possibilities  I guess to be 50/50. The one sure thing is we will all have a piece of MTO/Victorinox history in our hands, so who cares if it is before or after Christmas.
