Very smart Neil.  :salute:
What the Sak, or standing behind the curtain :think: :D

The Knife!  :ahhh I meant the knife.  Although the curtain idea seems like a good one to me.  :D

Moving swiftly on ;)



Got this little Tiffany SAK from the cat man the other day.  I really like Silver SAKs but the Vic ones are often a bit on the expensive side so I tend to buy used and then get polishing.  This one was a particular challenge in that it had quite a large stain in the silver on the back.  I should point out that this was very clearly mentioned on the sales page, there were no surprises here. 



Unfortunately the stain ran quite deep and normal polishing failed to change it at all.  I had to remove quite a bit of silver before getting rid of it, hence the defacement of the Tiffany logo.  Couldn't be helped, I did manage to reduce the amount of silver taken away at that end by very gently sloping the scale but there was only so far this trick got me. 

I really should have done before and after pics but I'm slack :D   Despite the aggressive restoration of the rear scale I think it turned out nicely and am very happy to let it join my other precious little SAKs :)

That is very nice Neil.

I hope to include one of those soon.

As you probably know, I am on a little precious metal Classics hoarding jaunt atm. I have ordered all 5 sterling silver Vics + the little gold ingot fellow.

I might look at Wengers next. I noticed that the Wenger sterling silvers are cheaper...and yet they are larger. Any explanation...hollow scales maybe?

It turned out really nice actually. I'll have to experiment with the lighting at some point so that I can give a better idea of how the silver ones look.

No idea why the Wengers are cheaper.  No idea at all  :think:

Sorry Ben, can't help myself :D

Digging up an old thread of mine but I took this shot and thought it would fit in here as well as anywhere.


91mm down to 58mm.

I think it shows the main reason I am still carrying my Ambassador, the blade is just that significant bit bigger then the Classic's.

That's actually a great reference picture!  What's that funny logo on the 58mm?
