The day started easy today.
A day of...
Waking up at 9. Coffee, breakfast.

An unexpected turn of events caused me ending up in the Netherlands, at the Victorinox Outlet Store! :ahhh

Nice store!! :dd:



Nice staff too!

Sadly, the tales of rare, NOS SAKs in display are tales of the past.

I heard some great stories about awesome finds here, but when asking around at the staff, it turns out that there are no old SAKs left.

That is, apart from some Mother Of Pearl SAKs. And that's only because of the price... €415 for a Swisschamp... no thanks, even though they are plain beautifull.

Since the opening of the Outlet store, collectors from all corners of the Benelux visited the store and asked the people there to keep their eyes open for specific models.
The list of "waiting collectors" grew quite large throughout the years, so quite sadly, the golden years for collectors are behind us for this selling point.


People who are looking for some bags, clothing and fragerances, will get nice discounts on retail pricings!

On SAKs too actualy... but standard models available only!

They did have 4 "year of the Horse" Climbers in stock from 2013. The price was good, so I brought one home.




No fancy box like on the Huntsman, but a fun knife nonetheless.

I also grabbed some full red lanyards on the cheap, which are usualy not available in Europe, and drooled some over the watches and EDC bags. The watches were still a tad more expensive than I was willing to spend today, the bags were awesome, but I couldn't justify getting one while my current leather one is about a year old and more than decent. It's just not a Vic bag...

In short, great experience and I'll happily visit again when I'm closeby.
Be sure to do the same! :tu:

I would like to apologise to anyone I have not offended. Please be patient, I will get to you shortly.
Just a small personal observation.  ...........I would not be at all surprised that when God created the Earth & the heavens, that the SwissChamp was the tool he used. .............. :hatsoff:

I scored some nice tools there. You’re right- there are a lot of newer models there...

Not much sense in buying current production models at a discount for me. But for someone who is just beginning...

I visit this store at least 3 or 4 times a year. Just a 40 minute drive.
But lately they sadly have nothing new. I like the little  SD Classic, but they have the same models for at least 2 years now. Too bad…

I've been there a dozen times and I've spent a lot of €€€ on several Directors, horn scaled Accountants and other stuff. I also got several freebies after telling them about my collection :)
And I bought my Airboss watch there at about 50% discount (impulse buy :P ).
Years ago they also had a couple of Wallpaper Cuts knives. I think an MTo member bought one or two.

Too bad they don't have anything really nice anymore.

Freebies??!

I just said "I've got quite alot of Victorinox knives now" and was immediatly blocked off with a "oh quite alot of collectors walk in here"...
:wait:

I want freebies too! :D

True story, but friendly staff nonetheless.

TBH it was maybe 5 or 6 years ago.

And they probably prefer my face over yours.

In 2017 I visited this store for the forst time. There were some really nice knives available (for example one with the long nail file). Also for sale was a brand new Victorinox Swiss Army Airboss Limited Edition Chronograph #241599. A titanium automatic watch of which only 300 were made. Price was about 1650 Euro, which was really a good deal. Unfortunately I had not the money to buy it. (Okay, I had the money, but my wife decided that I hadn't... She yelled something like 'divorce' or so.)

This year I visited the store in summer, but it was rather disappointing. No special models, no special clothing, nothing special at all, only some 2015-2016 'limited' SD's.
Anyway, when I'm nearby I'll stop and shop.
