Good luck. I've never seen one at all, even in battered condition. I'm guessing Telemechanique had as few made as they possibly could. Provided those VFDs were expensive, and they only gave out one knife with each VFD (or perhaps only to company techs), there aren't many out there. The only example I have seen was the one in the Wiki.

 I've wanted one for some time, especially during my time in Siemens Mechatronics Level 1 and 2 classes, as the tools were items I needed regularly.  My plans are to make my own using parts from the Automobile and an Explorer.

“Engineer”Still lurking around try to score an “Egineer”. Hopefully someone knows of whereabouts of a nice example. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you know someone who would part with one of those beauties.


Thank you for considering my request.

Hey Folks,
Just bumping this up...


I am still lurking on the web, looking for a Victorinox SAK “Engineer” model. I realise that their numbers are limited but would love to have one to accompany my “PLC” tool collection.


Cheers and Thank you.

I have nothing to offer you, but am curious.

Are you looking for one to carry, or to collect?

If it is the former, an alox technician or cellidor automobile are easier to find, and would be suitable tech-driver donors for a mod.
That would the route i would take, anyways.  :)

All I know is that I don't know anything - but I can't prove it!

T14,
It would be for my collection only and not an EDC knife. It would become a shelf queen.

zoidberg that would be an option for a nice daily carry; But, from a collector’s point of view, i’d prefer the real McCoy.

I understand mate.

Not trying to wind you up here so take the following with a grain of salt.
I make a SAK and sell it to person A, they sell it to person B who now treasures it as the real deal.
Isn't it interesting how the mind can be happy when it doesn't know it doesn't know.

Just out of curiosity, what is an Engineer worth?

Zoidberg,

Well, to me, it depends on the condition. If it’s “like” new or never used it will be more than a used one that’s been sharpened by a debutante. In dollars, it would be more than a Scientist since it is more rare. By rare I mean the “blue” one; issued by the Telemecanique corporation. That to me is a prize worth looking for.

How much would you need to make me an engineer model from parts?

Hey Pabs,

This is your homework for the next couple of days. Find out where the expression:
“The real Mc Coy” comes from. I will require sources and a list of references. You have until Friday the 02 Feb 2018.

I would build it for free but you would have to find the parts and cover postage etc.
Seriously, I would ask Syph, one he is closer to you, two he might have the parts already and three he does it for a living.

Finding a tele corp one would be totally awesome.
