Nice pick-up! A scale swap is definitely w viable option. I, personally, would go with blue or yellow (simply because I've long wanted a 91mm in those two colors).
'54 Soldier/Standard Issue model 1951, it did not look very good on the sellers pics... turns out okay after a thorough cleaning session ! Tools are in really nice shape, only the rivets did rust a little and started cracking the fiber scales Very happy with that one, btw, it is my first model 1951 SAK
Very happy with that one.
You seem to have quite the knack for finding interesting SAKs, Glenfiddich!
I bought a Wenger Seafarer with the Old Spice logo from a member here. I like the fact that they replace the standard sailboat with the old spice one and it integrates nicely.Here is the one I got (sellers picture):(Image removed from quote.)and the standard model (SAKWIKI):(Image removed from quote.)

Very cool find!
(Figured out how to get back into my old account. Need to delete my new Wengerfan account. Any Admins can help?)
Got a new Spartan.

I picked up another used Swiss Champ on eBay a few weeks ago and finally had time to clean it several days ago. When I bought it, I thought I'd break it up for parts for mods. But it cleaned up so well that I'm thinking of saving it as a spare, especially after enjoying a 30-day Stack Challenge with another Champ. They are great SAKs!Maybe some new scales though as I have many red Cellidor SAKs. Emerald translucent? Hmmm... I've never seen these in person. Opinions?(Besides red, I already have black, yellow, and sapphire translucent SAKs.)
Just beware…this is only the 5th stage of SAK addiction. Stage 6 is when you rationalize keeping even the junk ones intact…or any other excuse not to tear it down when you bought it specifically for parts.
I just added a few more knives.
Apparently I have that to look forward to now. Care to recap stages 1-4 so I can tick off each one of them?
