Hi,

just found this on youtube:

A collection of SAKs which never went into production.

- This little fork was meant for onions or olives in vinegar. Not enough potential customers.

- For the comb, Urs Wyss (the guy with the white shirt) says it is for hygiene reasons :
It is not advisable to put side to side a comb and a knife you cut your food with.

- The tapemeasure was too tiny to be readable/usable, and the lamp goes back to "before the LED" times,
so, as Urs says, it was 90% lamp and 10 knife. Makes little sense.

Neat to see some ideas from Vic outside of what we're used to.  Thanks for sharing   :tu:

No need for a comb...the fish scaler works just fine for that.
 :twak:

And what is going on with the one behind the fork model? The blade seems to only be sharpened at the tip and it has a tang lock hole like you find in traditional switchblades, but there is no room for the rest of a trigger latch. It cant be that because the logical place to put it would be on the outside next to a scale. There is a main, but that doesnt look like a normal pen blade either. So what is it?

Perhaps it has a little too much flair so such a stoic and traditional brand as Victorinox?

Forks are the work of the devil! Eat with your God given fingers!  :twak:

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

Of course! The fish scaler itself is a multitool.

Often its hair from the cats. They like the fish scaler. Too bad that the Workchamp XL doesn't has this tool. I've still to wait until tomorrow to get that beast  :climber:

The beasts here think sometimes they are tigers. But when they see themselves in the mirror they're just cats.  :D
