Another BYSAK, but this one is in amazing condition for a 65 Wenger M61 with red scales - sadly it wasn’t cheap…..
Aaaah! A ‘65. Looking for one of those myself. Nice one Rizio. Colour me envious.  :like:

Unusual Marlboro Big Pack Swiss Champ. Still NIB, purchased from German seller.  :cheers:

I cannot find any references to this particular promo model. LeaF has a Standard model on his web site with this type of logo design, but larger font. And I cannot find any examples of the wood-design outer sleeve. Probably dates from 1994-95 (leaflet dated 12/93 and no pliers crimper). I was going to make this a user, but it's really too nice and will go on my display shelf. Gives me an excuse to look for another Swiss Champ - I seem to be collecting these  :facepalm:

A Picnicker (?) with a chequered past…

Started out as the leftover pieces of a DAK kindly gifted me by Reinier. It lacked liners but I picked up a set on Aliex. I had also used the Philips on another mod and only had a corkscrew - one of many! Thus the PK toolset.

Finally, I took a punt on a set of Taschenmessers (on Etsy) micarta scales. Not cheap, but I have to say they look and feel gorgeous.

Took me a while to put it together but I am very pleased. Nice.

Hey guys! 

I'm a complete newbie here, but I'm so glad I found this forum and community.  I was about to ask what a SAK is, but then I just figured it out, Swiss Army Knives, duh!  LOL

I'm not a newbie to Swiss Army Knives, just don't know a lot about them, as I was gifted a Victorinox Recruit (learned the name of this model recently) about 15 years ago at work.  My manager gave all the staff of engineers a Swiss Army Knife one Christmas.  So the Recruit with nylon scales on mine has been a trusty companion ever since and always accompanied me in my work laptop bag, and I always reached for it whenever I needed any cutting or "MacIvering" to do to get something done!  What a quality and reliable little tool.  I recently gave it a well deserved cleaning and oiling, and it feels as good as new with that satisfying Victorinox blade snap back sound!  The scales show a little patina from years of good use, and the Victorinox logo is somewhat faded with character. 

So I bought a new "Swiss Champ" about a month ago.  Had to use up my credit card points I accumulated.  All I can say is WOW!  It's the trusty Recruit on steroids!  :)  Absolutely love it!  Such awesome quality and craftsmanship, and utility.  I saw in a youtube review someone mentioned "The Swiss Army Knife, while it won't replace the right tools, it is the right tool when there is nothing else around".  I say absolutely, in fact for cutting and MacIvering, it is the best tool.  I also heard "the best survival knife, is the knife you have on you", which is so true with the Swiss Army Knife, as they are so darn compact and light for the tools it can pack in it's little foot print, you can have one on you all the time as an EDC.

Another knife that started to appeal to me was the Huntsman, as it seemed to focus it's complement of tools for the outdoors giving you just the right tools for that.  And then I came across the Victorinox Evolution S17 with a locking blade, with a similar complement of tools as the Huntsman, so I got that, and I really like that one too. 

My little Recruit will continue to accompany me in my laptop bag for work as I love it's compactness and the extremely efficient complement of effective tools.  Learned recently from watching SAK youtube videos, that little pen blade works great as an ink eraser.  Army officers used that blade for exactly that, to gently scratch off the ink from the surface of the paper to erase mistakes, and it works like a charm.

Here are my modest complement of Swiss Army Knives so far!

Great to have you on MTo Maxdog, an excellent cross section of SAKs you have there, small medium and large.

They do of course get smaller and bigger, but a Rambler or Manager for your keychain might be a nice addition

Thanks Echotech!  Yeah I've been eyeing the Midnight Manager.  :drool:  I think my keychain has room on it.  I feel like I am on the precipice of the SAK rabbit hole, and love it!   :climber:

Climber is a great SAK. If I didn't use/need the mag glass on my Explorer regularly, my Climber would be in my rotation. As it is, it just hangs in my display.   :(
