Cheers all.

Yeah.  The pull on mine is OK, but it's a bit mushy in the open position.  It feels to me that most of the smaller RR knives are the same.  Smaller backsprings are tough to get right it seems.

Good info,,,thanks.

And now, ladies and gentleman, this is the news you've all been waiting for!   :woohoo:
DAK afficionado's and all others, fasten your seatbelts!
Here are the first detailed pictures of a genuine, beautiful, Holy Grail Victorinox: The latest version of the blue alox RNLAF Survival Kit Knife !!  :drool:

This particular knife is a little bit of an enigma...
In order to shed some light: Look at the tweezers.
Tomorrow I show you more detailed pics.

Incredible and beautiful example EMZ!  Thanks for sharing and especially the nice, detailed photos!  :hatsoff: :cheers:

My date estimate for this knife is late-‘75 to early-‘76 based on all the construction details I can see. Specific tool and part machining are pretty clear. Also good hints in the tang stamps. Even the tweezer helps confirm the range. I’m happy to see such an excellent survivor.  :tu:

Greetings from another UK user, I didn't realise there was such a scene!

I found my way here while trying to research an older Wenger SAK that I have.
There is a corkscrew mounting point on both sides of the tool.

Hah!!! Thanks for letting me know. I’ll check it tonight. I have an old model so I hope I just missed it.

Hmm still in the fence. The tool is a bit heavy for a pocket clip carry.

Those Knipex end cutters look like a beast. I paid more for my compact bolt cutters, so why not have both? I've put the end cutters in my cart, so once I find a couple more items, they'll be in my next order. :cheers:

I chose end cutters instead of compact CoBolt because I wanted to be able to use them as regular pincers (spoiler : it's not that easy, there is so much leverage that it tends to cut wire when wrapping).
I have no actual intended use for the CoBolt, but I think I'll get one someday [you never know when you'll need to cut barbwire to escape from zombies]

They ran out anyway. They had the price sign but they had flashlights  instead. The associate did say more will arrive. I’ll check again when I get a chance. Sorry. Must be a popular model.

Curious though, why get them? They seem like entry level tools. I would think the Rebar would offer more in a compact form.

The only thing that would make me get them is that for $40 and a lifetime warranty it’s an incredible value. Something I wouldn’t mind lending and losing. But there are better tools out there.
