Working on some updates, mostly on available/unavailable models. Dropping this partially to see if anyone has info/ideas, and partially to have a to do list.

Confirmed Disco:
Full 74mm range (done)

Possibly Disco?
  • Flash/USB/@work line (delisted on some regional Vic sites, not all)
  • Watch Case Opener
  • Most Evo back side SD models (ex Evo 11) are gone from the site, but still available on resellers. Seems odd to drop those and not the CS. Is the Evo backside SD different than the one they use on other knives?
  • Cigar cutters (delisted on some regional Vic sites, not all)

Need Updates
  • The garden knives have some different variations and others discontinued
  • "Family" pics need to be updated to remove unavailable models
  • The 111mm and 135mm pages use asterisks for unavailable models. Most other pages use them for available. I think they should be in line with the others, but wanted to make sure there wasn't some reasoning behind it first.

I know we've reached out to Vic directly in the past on discontinued models with mixed results. Figured I'd bounce it off the board's brain before I attempt the potential frustration.

Hey BPR - Welcome to SAKWiki editing - Great to have you on board and thanks for your help.

Yes the whole topic of unavailability/withdrawals has been very confusing with lots of contradictrory information over the last couple of years.
And the Vic website cannot be taken as a source of truth as they do not always show all availabe models (even on the main .com site).  Vic thenselves acknowledged this and stated that the catalogues were the definitive source of truth - Although i did not see a new one for about 4 yrs  2017>2021 !!!     :pok:    :twak:

Here's my comments on your comments
 
Confirmed Discon:
Full 74mm range (done)
H - Is this really the case? The Executive is still showing in the latest catalogue we have - Although this is 2021

Possibly Discon?
  • Flash/USB/@work line (delisted on some regional Vic sites, not all)
H - Yep heard that rumour - Would make sense as they are pretty expensive compared to regular flash drives 
  • Watch Case Opener
H - Had not heard that one!   
  • Most Evo back side SD models (ex Evo 11) are gone from the site, but still available on resellers. Seems odd to drop those and not the CS. Is the Evo backside SD different than the one they use on other knives?
H - Well I have a theory that Vic are biased against backside SDs  ;) - Keep meaning to make a post on this!! I would imagine Vic/Delemont SDs different
  • Cigar cutters (delisted on some regional Vic sites, not all)
H -  I had noticed that the smaller one seemed to have gone - But a shame if both have gone

Need Updates
  • The garden knives have some different variations and others discontinued
H -  Yes that woudl be great - Been outstanding for a long time
  • "Family" pics need to be updated to remove unavailable models
H -  I did discussed this with NeleDo a while ago - He might porduce some updates.
I have mixed feelings about this  - as these images are really great - They are dated and the list above does show current - Also this could be a constantly ongoing task as models change!!
I think it would be a shame to make them with fewer models.  - Nele was wondering about maybe keeping model quantity the same - But having  a discon section at the bottom?  ???

  • The 111mm and 135mm pages use asterisks for unavailable models. Most other pages use them for available. I think they should be in line with the others, but wanted to make sure there wasn't some reasoning behind it first.
H - This was intentional !!!   :o
The asterixes are marked against the group that has the smallest number to reduce nunmber of asterixes and improve aesthetics!!   :think: 
So fewer 111mm models are withdrawn than available and fewer 91mm models are available than withdrawn !!  .....  :tu:
Hopefully the text is clear on this - However if people find this confusing or inconsistent - It could be changed ???     :think: 

 

I know we've reached out to Vic directly in the past on discontinued models with mixed results. Figured I'd bounce it off the board's brain before I attempt the potential frustration.

H - A mail to Vic would be great to see if we could get a definitive position on the discons

For the 74s I have email "confirmation" from Vic in this thread: https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,88257.30.html

Granted, someone else got an email from them saying they were still making them a couple months later... and Vic also told me the Compact got discontinued last year...

However I was also told by email (and then verbally this summer) by the guys at Casco Bay Cutlery/VSAKCS that they're discontinued, and I do trust them.

I personally think it makes more sense to be consistent on the asterisks, though I understand the "less is more" logic.  Just my 2c.

I've done some pretty minor work in the Wiki: correcting an error on the Fieldmaster page. As time allows, I'll poke around a little more and see where else I might be able to do some decent quality edits.

One to four layers of SAK is (usually) best for me.

If you have absolutely nothing better to do, my YouTube channel is awlways an option:

Massive thank you to all who contribute.  Getting the Zodiac series completed is amazing work.  Just goes to show what dedicated and generous folk we have. 

Again, a massive thank you to all.    :2tu:

Just wanted to confirm with someone else before I make the update. The VSAKCS knife for '21 is listed as a Deluxe Tinker. Mine (from the second run) is clearly a Super Tinker 1.4703.7R2. Was the first run a Deluxe and they switched, or did someone make a mistake on the wiki?

    PS. I updated the Vic 111mm page so that * shows available models in line with 91mm page     :D    :tu:    :salute:   
    TBH - The withdrawn vs available models for this series are almost the same in number.
    SO that makes sense and it looks good and is consistent   :tu:     

The ..... 135mm pages use asterisks for unavailable models. Most other pages use them for available.
I think they should be in line with the others, but wanted to make sure there wasn't some reasoning behind it first.[/li][/list]

Assume you meant the 130mm Delemonts

I looked at that page and as the whole model list fits onto one screen including the informational message about the asterixes

I could not bring myself to remove two asterixes and replace them with 18 !!!   
So I left as is ...........   >:D

Confirmed that the original was a Deluxe and the "second run" is a Super (which I guess I should still add to the page once I can get a better pic.) Worked out for me, I'd rather carry a Super anyway. Interestingly, the original announcement in the newsletter listed it as a Super.

Sounds good on the asterisks solution.
