Yesterday I received this old style Amefa DAK. It is at the bottom of the pics.
The configuration of the tools is different from the 'normal' style KL knives. As far as I can see, it lacks the KL stamp.

BTW:The KL knife in the pics is an Instalex.

Lijnwerkerset (Line worker set) with knife TL-29  and pliers.
The Knife is a post 1987 Camillus. It's not a very nice specimen, but these complete sets are rather difficult to find.
The electricians pliers are made by Knipex. This is not a regular, commercial pliers. The canvas pouch is Dutch made.

The latest addition to my collection: The Amefa KL 72 knife
It took me 4 years to find an affordable, nice specimen. Probably the KL72 is a little bit rare.
The only ones still missing are KLU 63 and KLU 74. The hunt continues!

Last week I saw a KLU63 for sale on MP with broken blade

Yes, I noticed it. However I am not interested in knives with broken tools. I don't mind if tools are bent, worn or ground too much, but broken tools are one step too far.
I am also missing some other Dutch Air Force knives like the ones with the blue aluminium slabs (There are 3 models of which I only have 1) and the blue Wenger knife and two "KLU EIGENDOM" types.

It's not like Victorinox was using blades from different production!? For example blade that was made for production civil model nomad or centurion. I made this conclusion because well know tang stamp de-gm is not originally made for DAK.

Nice KL72.

Keep my fingers crossed for finding KLu models.

Who ever wins, it won't be me!
That's a lot of money for in fact a standard Amefa knife. Thanks for keeping me informed.

"Geen Victorinox". That's misusing a brand name.

I know a seller who has a full plastic bag of Amefa KL knives...
Anything specific I should look for?
I always ignored them so far.
Lots of Alox models, but also the older fibre handles in there.

Buy now or regret later

It is allowed on Marktplaats.
The highest bidder at the moment is someone named 'Van Polen'. I've never seen this name before bidding on knives. Could it be this bidder is from Poland...???

Then why is there the option "Merkvergelijking in titel" when reporting a listing?

Every KLU is rare.
Very few fibre Amefa's have the tang stamp 'Instalex'.
Some fibre Amefa's have what I call 'invers tool positioning'. It's described here in this forum.

I especially like the alox KL 72-73-74 Amefa's because they lack the can opener, and KL 72 was the first aluminium Amefa.
The last Amefa was the KL 84.
The first Victorinox was the KL 83 (with brass liners)

Today, the highest bid is a whopping € 210... and that price for a knife that is in a rather bad condition (broken blade tip, broken reamer tip, slightly bent screw driver).

Here's a multi-tool from the Dutch Army 1st Division "7 December". Now this unit is known as 11 Air Mobile Brigade.
These tools were issued as gift, representation and for normal use.
The multitool is probably a Chinese copy (the blade is stamped 'stainless') of an older type SOG tool.

Could be. We have some "havy" collectors.

Price are get wild. I always knew that besides hobby, it's a very good investment.

I am not so sure. Yesterday I sold by auction on Ebay a near perfect Amefa KL 81. Highest bid was at only $ 11.50.
That knife I bought myself a while ago for about $ 19, so this one was definitely not a good investment!
