Cool find FB! :like: :tu: :tu:
Thank you Vicman!  :cheers:

That's a very nice one, with the late 1940s opener (I think) ánd scissors.
Thank you, do you think it's 84mm or 91mm?  I can't tell.   :dunno:


Victorinox nail clippers for about $8 should help with the budget, maybe spread out into the cutlery dept and get a paring knife? Just giving some suggestions cause this sounds like it could drain your wallet if your set on completing challenge and lose an auction and need a quickie Vic so you don't overpay on something.
Good ideas Blackbeard, thank you.  :tu:

Thank you Wspeed.  Right when I think I have enough exposed rivet SAKs, another pulls me in.  :hatsoff:

Holy smokes!

Have you been hired by Victorinox to get fans all ginned up to boost Q1 sales or something?

More power to ya, but I'll just be watching.

Worst case scenario, head over to Def's get em before they go to Ebay thread. You didn't say they have to be new.

Between Def's sales thread and Lynn LeFay's cheapo depot reviews, in a pinch, many could be got for less money than the price of a trip to Dunkin Donuts. Certainly Starbucks

True, they can be new or used, although I do prefer mint-in-box.  :tu:

I think it's 91mm, but since you want it to be 84mm I say 84mm ;)

Day 3

I couldn't find an item from my most wanted list, or anything that caught my eye, so I settled on getting 4 pens to fit in some plus scales I have.  I bought directly from Victorinox.com:

Thanks all.
Day 4 - I bought the one shown below today.
I like MiniChamps (they're big Vagabonds to me  :D ) and this one caught my eye as I haven't seen a black scaled one.  Plus it seems it has an LED, so the Midnite version.
I thought it might be a scale switch, but then I can't see any reference to black cellidor w/LED in the SAKWiki.  But then maybe it isn't an LED version.  :think:

Thank you RR and Wspeed.
I found one that is similar on an ended auction.  It has a red LED and L.L. Bean on the other scale....so when it arrives I'll know if it is one of those.
