I've never had my Executive fold up on me while using it, and it gets carried every single day.  :tu:  As for the scissors, they are a nice split the difference size between the 91's and 58's.  Very useful keychain knife IMO, I do like it a bit better than the 58mms.

There's no such thing as "Too pretty to carry".  There's only "Too pretty NOT to carry"...... >:D

Here's a scissor comparison pic, Rambler, Executive, and Huntsman.

Here's a link to a mini review I did of the Ambassador a few years ago.  Just so happens I've got that very knife on my keys right now. :)

The store where I got my Executive had an Ambassador as well.  The nail file on the Exec is what sold me.

Since writing that I've also become the proud owner of an Executive as well.  Couldn't agree more about the nail file, it really is much better.  Yet for some reason I do still find myself carrying my old Ambassador more.  I think I just find the extra thickness of the Exec a touch more noticeable when worn on my keyring. :shrug:

I'll give it another chance this weekend. :)

That is fantastic.  I quoted it because everyone should get a second look at 'em. ;) :tu:

Gold plated Ambassador! High on my wanted list for years. Found one in good condition for a fraction of the list price. I'm happy :)

Anyone else, not seeing the picture in the above message?

Oh that's probbaly your Web-Hosting site... trying to prevent hot-linking so that your site uses less bandwidth.

No, it's not that. Hot-linking is allowed. In fact, my images have always worked fine. The .htaccess file keeps changing, it tries to redirect all traffic to some blacklisted malware site :(

Oh that's nasty... I hope you can find the source... they may have compromized your hosting site, if your using a hosting service they should be able to tell you if the change came from rogue software at your IP or from somewhere else.

If you're hosting it on your own machine, you may want to check your hosting software, they may have been able to just break the security for that.  Sometimes once they are in once, it's hard to close all the doors they make for themselves.

Yes, you are right. It's probably caused by some vulnerability in Wordpress or a plugin. I'm contacting my hosting provider ASAP :)

Okay, late to the party here (no surprise there...  :whistle: ) but I'm an Executive owner/carrier too.  :)  It's one of my most carried SAKs.  I vacillate between it and my Squirt S4 as my primary pocket tool.  I suppose I could try carrying both of them... I keep thinking it'd be too much overlap, but if it's not to uncomfortable to carry, I just might try it.

Its an Accountant model. Seems they are at least going back to the 1940's.

I picked up 2 like yours, one with inserts and one without. Both are Victoria stamped. I also have a cracked ice 84mm Accountant? Not sure if the size makes it some other model but it looks the same. Stainless steel models are found often too.
