Today this absolute ugly beauty came in the mail: A genuine KL 95 Fosco!According to the seller (an ex-army officer who also collects DAK's), the alox KL 95 Fosco knives were bought by the Army in 1995 because the Victorinox KL 1993 knives weren't available at the time. The Army's Defence Material Organisation (DMO) soon realized that the Fosco KL 95 knives were of extremely bad quality, so short after the release, the contract was cancelled, the knives were withdrawn from service and remaining stock was destroyed. Consequently these alox Fosco's are very rare.
question to the DAK collectors, here is my first bailed DAK I got today, and the first thing I noticed is the bail is not mounted on a hollow rivet as on my SI ('91) and Soldier (92) but on what looks like a drilled non-hollow one ?(Image removed from quote.)
Wow! Who can resist busting that thing out of the plastic bag!

Decided to finally EDC this guy. I was a little hesitant as it is my only one, it was between this and an old red OC.... the red on the OC is and pretty darn good shape so I've decided to keep that one on the Shelf.I'm finding a great amount of satisfaction in carrying the DAK... I like the older, thicker tools and the KL 92 on the scale.
Today this up to now unknown DAK came in!! It's a Leatherman Tool plus leather pouch.The pouch has the Netherlands Defence Force gold colored "Interservice" logo on the flap.The tool is dated 0696 (or is it 9690??) on the inside of one handle.On one of the handles it is marked with an US NSN: 5110-01-321-8805.
Very nice find.......I believe that would be the PST as the PST2 has scissors.
