I feel like I need to come on here and admit that I have a problem.  :(

I was browsing the interwebs, looking at SAKs.  I saw one that literally made me....  :o    then  :drool:  and quite literally have heart-pounding excitement at a new purchase. 

then I realized that I already own it in a different color.

Difficult to get knives in these times, completely without flea markets, antique shops etc. What remains is the trade with other collectors. Here are my "corona times entries" for the past two months. The last three soldiers 98-00 that I was missing, two rare bicolors, and a few others. Thanks to the collectors for these pleasant exchanges!  :salute:

Nice ones Sneider. That's a complete collection in itself!

Do you have any info on the 58mm checkered alox one? I've only seen one of those before which was orange (mine, sold).

Great haul, Sneider! It would take years to get anything like that in the UK at the best of times! :hatsoff:

Thanks Reinier. It's a rally, unfortunately I don't know anything else about it.

Very few indeed. I tried schpock - gumtree/ebay alternative - and was surprised to find a good few.

I don’t see where the problem is. It is a different color after all  :pok: :D

Picked up on my 42 birthday. In my favorite knife shop where I was allowed to choose my first SAK as a little boy. The sales team knows me and has reserved the damask number 4224 for me. Call me sentimental but for me such small things make the difference.

Very, very nice. I have the 2020 pioneer but that damask hunter is a beauty. Happy birthday! Oh to be 42 again...

Nice!  Wishing you many happy returns of the day. It's nice that they were able to get a particular serial number for you. 

I still remember the knife shop that I used to go to when I was small.  My father picked one out for me - while at that age you might think that a child would prefer to choose their own... at my age, you realize that someone else choosing for you leads to more sentimental value.

Many thanks guys!  :salute: :cheers: :drink:

@ElevenBlade: Cool! For people who love knives, remembering when you got your first knife is always something special.

I remember exactly how my father always took me to this store when he needed something there. There was a big wall where all SAK models were presented. I always looked at all the many SAK models that were presented and waited for my father. One day he was standing next to me and just said I could choose one! I pointed to the 111mm model Rucksack, thought my father would not agree because it was too big (or I was too small), but he bought it for me. At home my father put a cord on my knife and showed me how to attach it to my pants with a loop. He said "don't lose it, I won't buy you a second one!" I felt like a king and this knife meant a lot to me!

My dad would have smacked me upside the head if I chose the Rucksack.  He picked out a red Tinker small for me.  I really can't remember what I would have picked out at that age except that it would have been black.  I think I'd have picked the Swisschamp (or equivalent). 

These days, I prefer the 2 layer SAKs, and have a particular appreciation for red scales.  Red serves a purpose in nature... usually as a warning.  For SAKs it makes it easy to find in your pack or if it's lost on the ground.  It also serves as a "not tactical" signal in my natural habitat.

Tinker small is a great knife for children's hands! 
I was a forest child, when it didn't storm and I didn't have school, I was in the forest until night. A lockable blade, saw and awl was important to me. Somehow my father felt how important it was to me.

Knives with many layers have never really fascinated me. Today I use one or two layers.  :cheers:

Happy birthday Sneider!
You must be their favourite customer in that shop! Your corona-crisis alox haul is ridiculous. I hope your house doesn't collapse under the weight of 45,000 SAKs. You should ask an architect to figure out many SAKs the beams can hold and if you need to get rid of a few, feel free to dump the old cross oranges in my direction!

I know, but normally I find my knives at flea markets, antique shops, meet collectors, etc. Because Corona doesn't do anything now, that's why it's so ridiculously little.  :'(
The Swiss houses are well built and mine is only 200 years old, the beams will carry my knives for a long time.
And they are not (yet) 45,000, not even 10,000. ridiculous, so ridiculous ...

My first new SAK in a while - treated myself to an L.C.S.A.S. Bantam in red alox. Also a Spirit...but that's not really a SAK
