Sad news about long time collector Karl Soppeland - aka ColoSwiss
« on: March 11, 2019, 03:17:01 AM »
I am sad to report that my brother, Karl Soppeland (ColoSwiss) of Boulder, Colorado lost his battle with cancer two days ago.  During the last twenty years he assembled one of the finest collections of Swiss Army Knives in North America with almost 3000 different models.   He purchased knives on his travels throughout the world and from many varied sources.

If anyone is interested in his collection please contact me at (email removed- contact Grant if interested) for more information.

I'm so sorry to read this post.  It really hit home.  My brother passed in August and it's so difficult to endure.
My sincerest condolences for your family.

Sincerest condolences. Karl's passing is a HUGE loss to the SAK collecting community.

I sent you an email - please let me know if you need help with Karl's collection. Karl was a good friend and I'd like to see his wonderful knives find good homes.

I am shocked to hear this, Karl was a great member of the SAK community and always surprised me with his pictures. If some extremely rare model of SAK was discussed you could always expect Karl to pop up with some pictures, he seemed to have everything.

My condolences and I wish you and your family all the strength on processing this loss  :-[

Mechanickal told me so :facepalm:

Just to clarify, Karl, aka ColoSwiss is who passed away, not his brother.  His brother was kind enough to let us know, despite having to deal with this loss in his own life, and for that, I greatly thank him.

This is a HUGE loss to our community and I am very sorry to hear of this.  Karl was a great friend and an exceptionally knowledgeable collector.  He and I go way back, to well before Multitool.org, and I was very glad when he made the jump from SOSAK to MTO with me.

Karl, I am glad to hear that you are no longer suffering, but I am going to miss you immensely.  RIP buddy, and my most sincere condolences to your family.  And huge thanks again to your brother (I'm sorry, I don't know your name) for taking the time out of your grieving to let a bunch of faceless people on the internet know what happened.

So, so sorry to hear this. :'(  Karl was a great guy, a big part of this forum and will be sorely missed.
