:cheers:

I still have CeHo's MOTM, but haven't opened the shipping carton. I'm assuming it is close to the one I have, but we'll find out when CeHo gets it. :ahhh

 :cheers: I'd assume the same unless he says otherwise! 

Now, would you have looked if yours was #1,968?  :D

It would have certainly led to a question to check and see, respecting an answer either way.
It helps I have never been strongly motivated by money or prestige, to my own detriment many times.   :rofl:

Then you are a better man than I!  :hatsoff:

Only a sense of honor would compel me to leave it be.  I've been strongly motivated by money...used to care about prestige. Perhaps just less so now.

...

19 of these sold on * bay so far...so just less than 1%.  I wonder when the scalper/speculator copies will run out.

...

Not liking the wear that's visible on the backside of the small blade. Makes light contact with the main blade when opening and it put in some fine arced swipe marks.  :P

I'm sure given the actual choice, you'd do it right.  :cheers:

I'm also curious to know how many are left with the scalpers.  :think:
The three per customer thing really did set up a precarious situation for actual collectors who missed out on the selling. :ahhh

You are the best  :tu:
Thank you much for the kind words, CeHo! :cheers:

Yeah, I wonder how many are waiting out there.

Looks like #1,002 came to the States.


Went for 'only' $165.  Not sure if that was a BIN price or maybe a short duration auction. Didn't notice it earlier. 

Only one more for sale on *bay right now in the US, and 5 globally.

Outside of the US, looks like they've *all* sold at over $300 USD shipped. Crazy.

Looks like #634 and #359 (sold) originally stayed in Switzerland.

14 sold from the US so far and 22 globally from * bay.

Gotta wonder where #1,969 is!  :ahhh

Interesting question, Kamakiri - I should imagine #1969 stayed in the factory! #1537 came to the UK - when the e-mail arrived on Saturday, I tried the link, and as many here have reported, it didn’t work, so I tried again early on Sunday morning and had success (6a.m.) - I tried again 30 mins later, and they were sold out, so I was very lucky.... :cheers:

Now there’s an idea!!  :like: sadly, I’m sure I’d botch it up and have snapped scales, scratched tools etc!! Pity Victorinox didn’t go for a PS master craftsman/astronaut with special scales.... :drool:

Wouldn't be an expensive set of scales at all.  :whistle:

Would look good though! Have you looked into the SwissKnifeShop MOTM Tinker scales?

That would make too much sense for them to keep it!  Does anyone know if that's typical for Victorinox?  I'd like to think it went to some really lucky Smurf!

 :cheers: And thanks for the number info!  I'm hoping that later placed orders have a better chance at higher numbers.

Hrm...I do have a lightly used one...and am pretty good at removing scales...  :ahhh

 :iagree: Still a spendy mod to go that way!  And I wouldn't want to get just one... :think:

Maybe, just maybe, if Vic makes some of the other tools needed in the PS finish.  :ahhh

39 sold so far on *bay worldwide.  Scalper inventory appears to be out in the states and the handful available elsewhere are listed in the $500-$750 range USD.  Crazy.

Aside from #100 (which sold for a best offer under $500) and the one that was pre-sold for $440, looks like the practical high range for these is about $250 in the states and about $350 elsewhere.

Another one sold NIB recently for $699.


One before that was $550.

I watched that one go today and could not believe my eyes.  No box or manual, no other provenance, no nuthin'.   I guess I will never own since their values have gotten so crazy outta hand.   

And to think I had the opportunity to buy one brand new at a Cutlery World store back in 1989 but couldn't justify the price tag then, when I was a starving graduate student living on loans... :facepalm:

Now this is bananas.  Anyone who missed out on the MOTM now has an opportunity to buy 15 of them for only $10k.  I mean, that's only $667 apiece.  Who wouldn't do this?

Same seller has a Fischer Pioneer listed for $2k.  Also nuts but I'd sooner buy that than 15 double-priced MOTM's.

It has gotten out of control with the 20th Anniversary copies! They weren't even on my radar in '89.  There's no way I would have spent a week's pay on something like that!

Any guesses how high this one will go?





I don't think it will tap $400. Mostly considering how many sold recently. $300 ish?
