I read on Facebook that due tot their server troubles they somehow accidentally sold more knives than there where available. So even if you ordered one, there's a chance that it will be cancelled and refunded.
They also still show in stock in the US,
I just called Victorinox customer support and the lady told me that my order is shipping and that she didn't know anything about orders getting cancelled in the US that were placed yesterday.I had also ordered one for a friend and she(CS rep) said it is also shipping today.
And I don't see the SOLD OUT text right now...maybe some orders got cancelled?
And officially OUT OF STOCK on US Vic site!
Thanks for the info, but I looked and didn't see that post. Admittedly I am not very active or savvy with facebook. Do you happen to have a link to it?They also still show in stock in the US, and I wouldn't expect a server issue to be left unchecked for such a large company going on two days. Hopefully we'll all get our MOTM LE we ordered.
My only wish is that they would have put an astronaut on the scale, even if it was just a partial view of a helmet or something.
Did you order the Swiss Knife Shop exclusive version as well?The SKS version looks more like a "Man on the Moon" graphic than Vic's. Though Vic's is still very nice looking.
Not too sure the finishing would hold up well in pocket, but I've got plenty of user SAKs, so these babies are Shelf Astronauts. (Image removed from quote.)(Image removed from quote.)
The way they handled this is absolutely horrendous. They are on limited staff also because they're officially on holiday.
Yep, the ones I ordered are going to be Shelf Astronauts too. I ordered the Tinker (like you), and I ordered the Classic with the same scale. I didn't opt for the pug...at least not yet. Now, if it had a pitbull, that'd be hard to resist.
Thanks my friend
The one I really want, and in my opinion is the coolest, is the 20th Anniversary Craftsman I'd swim to Switzerland for that one!!
