i'm pretty sure the swiss cross only is a vinatge thing and victorinox hasn't produced any new ones since switching to company emblem
So ebay and trades, and they should be guttered if they are mint
on a side not i dont understand why victorinox doesnt just switch to 91mm alox scales now that the soldier is no longer produced for military contracts. Surely it would be easier to bring out a ton of configurations like scissors and (including current pioneer electrician and pruner variants... which they have in 91mm)
The only extra tool they would need a machine die for would be the layer awl.
Then your mainstream sak configurations could be bought in alox... much like the 84mm line but no backspring tools and awl instead of small blade. EG Climber, Ranger, Champion, Mechanic etc
