The Victorinox Climber Stayglow. I absolutely love it. Goes great with my stayglow classic that is always on my keyring

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.)

Opinions?
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  :pok:

Very happy with that one, btw, it is my first model 1951 SAK  :climber:

We think alike! I've already got a translucent blue Champion and a yellow Outdoorsman. I can't say I'm a big fan of the solid blue scales though.

I ended up ordering the translucent green ones. They should be here any time now.

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):



and the standard model (SAKWIKI):

Thank you, it was being sold here, and I seem to have been the only one interested in it at the time.

Got a new Spartan.  Like the slim and functional elegance carried down from the original Swiss Army Soldiers knives.

I should get myself a Spartan to carry around. Yours sure is sweet.

Excellent! I'd like to get my hands on one of those. Maybe I should build a stock of Alox exclusives from U.S. dealers to use as trade bait.  :think:

 An Outrider, very slightly used which included a Firefly ferro in the toothpick slot. Added a microdriver to the corkscrew and have been carrying it since it arrived on Monday. Nice upgrade in tools from my Rucksack.

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.  :ahhh

Sweet scores! They all look nearly new, if not completely untouched. One of my Campers is of similar vintage and condition, and still in its original box.

  • More than one SAK
  • SAKs you don’t need, not on a list, and impulse buys
  • Duplicates/backups
  • Purchases you need to hide from your wife/significant other

I’m somewhere down the line at: “I forgot I even had one (some number) of those!”
