Vic Champion C Survival Kit from the 90's
« on: February 04, 2018, 02:10:00 AM »
Hey all, long time no see!
I came into possession of this and have no idea of what to price it at...any help?  The pouch is in almost new condition and it has everything except a 2nd safety pin.   I only found one in the set, but leaflet shows 2.  The tools are in great shape, the spring on the pliers might need to be replaced.  It was just a bit off and got pinched under the magnifying glass, but I simply pushed it back into place and its been opening and closing no problem since. 

The main blade is fairly scratched up, unfortunately. :( and the small blade has scratches on one side.  Here are some pics:













Thank you for any input!

That looks like an early swisschamp to me. Not a Champion C. It is pretty cool because of the tangstamp. Should have the thinner original pliers. I have one with the same pliers but a big V tang. As for price I have no idea. To me any value will be in the knife as I do not really rate the survival kits.

I'd rate it more amongst the $80 mark because of the scratches.

Buy now or regret later

Thank you all for the input.  I was thinking the 80.00-100.00 range also because of the scratches and the Marco Lorenzi stamp.   I was told it was a gift in '91, so '86 makes sense.

I thought it was the C because sakwiki said the C has the magnifying glass

To me it is a really cool knife because there was (I think) only one year where the Swiss Champ had that tangstamp and only 2 years with those pliers.

Special.

Wow, thanks for that.  Any idea where i can read up on this?

The sak knowledge in this place has never ceased to amaze me

After some judicious use of the proper abrasives this blade was brought back to life.

That blade looks fantastic, if i have a badly scratched blade i usually up the grits with paper to 1500 then Garryflex and Autosol to finish, my blades never look as nice as that, would you mind sharing how you did that?

Is this still for sale?  I've been looking for an SOS kit like this for years.

The scratches on this blade necessitated the use of a very coarse grit .I started with 320 and wet sanded until it appeared the scratches were removed.I then proceeded with a 600,1k,2k and then buffed it with black emery compound on an electric buffing machine.

Thanks toolguy, I do appreciate the links.  I'm looking specifically for an '80s champ with the SOS pouch made of that green material.  They appear very rarely.

OK.

 Vic also made the dual pouch SOS kit with that material.

Good luck with your search.

Thanks, will get hold of some 2000 grit and give that a try next time  :tu:

Hi I think I found one with the green pouch, as soon as I have it I will show it to you and if the place is reliable I will let you know so you can buy it too
