Narrowing down which Swisstool I want
on: December 13, 2007, 04:57:45 AM
I know there are a few variations out there of the Swisstool, but does this exist?  A black Swisstool with scissors and a file.

If so, what's it called?

It don't exist  :(

The only black SwissTool has the "standard" blade layout. (file = yes, scissors = no)

The scissor + file layout is the SwissTool X, which doesn't come in black.

And the haggling in my mind begins.. :ahhh

OK, which Swisstools come in black?  Or is it just one tool layout that got the BO treatment?  (The two blades, file, and saw being the "long" outer tools)

Well scissors aren't totally necessary for me; I'll carry a Micra.  What kind of sheaths come with the BO Swisstool?

Mine came with a heavy cordura affair, with snap closure. (note fancy Vic embroidery, inside and out)

I'm a big fan of the snap, and a big hater of the velcro.

I hate that riiiiiip sound of velcro :twak:

Alright, time to ask Tim how much these things go for :-X...

The "standard" version and the Spirit are available in black.  Neither model has scissors.

Do you plan on getting any fullsize BO Swisstools in the near future?
