Hello from Tennessee
« on: January 17, 2019, 07:23:28 PM »
First, thanks Steve C for getting me here, earlier this month when I found I couldn't register. Then life got hectic and I have not had time to post at all since!

Been passionately attached to Swiss Army Knives since 1989 (an article in Smithsonian Magazine about SAKs, the history of Victorinox and Wenger) gave me the bug and I've been carrying ever since. My first was a Huntsman (and being '89, my guy has no hook). Sometime in '95 I popped out to K-Mart and got a Wenger Traveller that I carried until just recently (it isn't dead, I just got a new knife).

Last year my girlfriend decided she wanted a SAK and somehow, we both ended up with one for Christmas. Just after Christmas I ended up finding a used one in a shop and picked it up. Bought another coupe online, and began reading these forums (and mourned once more the end of Wenger -- why didn't I buy all the Wengers I wanted in 2013?). Went a little nuts in early January buying a few things and now have a burgeoning collection going. Luckily finances and reality will keep collecting in check, but the list of SAKs I want is pretty long so far (everyone's pics and knowledge here are fantastic).

She got a climber with stayglow scales, while I got a Pioneer X (which hasn't left my side since, my first alox).
