Anish Goel, managing director of Victorinox India, pulls the Indian prototype out of his pocket. It is a gorgeous, matte-black instrument, its body unusually hinged in half. “They’d asked us to include two tools in particular,” Goel says. “One is a saw to cut metal, and the other is a marlinspike. The navy uses the marlinspike to tie knots and open shackles. And we’ve also included two blades instead of one.”

Oh snap! New Spirit model?

I need one of those!

You and me both, that sounds like a quirky knife. :)

Oh Catman...  :D

I wonder what the Indian knife is?  It sounds interesting anyway.  Of course it might never make it past prototype. :-\

Thanks for the read though. :tu:

It sounds like it has at least one OH blade and a belt cutter.  Add to that the marlin spike and you'd assume a 111mm model but then it mentions folding in half making you think SwissTool/Spirit :think:

I'm not taking any more mod orders at present, sorry.

That was what I took from it as well, the fact he makes specific mention of the 'folding in half' strongly suggests to me something other than a normal 111mm SAK.  Perhaps (and don't get to excited folks, it's only a prototype) it's a Swiss Tool with OHO blades, I know I'm curious as heck but there's a chance it'll never see the light of day.

Well, judging from the way they describe all those "novelties" ("slim steel dividers" (aka liner lock), "purpose built hole" ::), etc.), my guess is that it's just a 111mm folder, that happens to "fold in half" (as opposed to being a fixed blade)... ::)

Yep, exactly. The writer sounded like a complete idiot to me. I'm pretty sure it's just another 111mm configuration.

Even if it IS just a 111mm variant, its an OHO with file (metal saw) and marlin spike. Sounds cool to me!
