Thanks!

What's interesting is that while both soldiers are from 1971, the WK stamps are different. See how one is horizontal while the other is vertical:

One of the endearing quirks about SAKs are those strange little oddities. I mean, someone had to decide to add those differences, but who? And how were those decisions made? Fascinating.

Yeah, fascinating indeed!

I read on the SOSAK site that the stamp was rotated 90 degrees in 1972. Turns out I now have the proof that the rotation actually happened in 1971 instead of 1972 :salute:

One of the reasons I majored in History in college was because of my fascination with details like this. I look at those things and my mind takes me on a mental journey trying to unravel the stories behind them. Especially the more trivial details. When you consider the watches, clocks and knives that the Swiss invented, and their precision, you know that these things weren't accidentally done. Everything from the design to the placement of the stamps was intentional, but to what end, and how were those decisions arrived at? One man? A committee? Another interesting thing is that it seems that for all of their precision, they didn't really keep records of these things. We have to guess. Anyway, so much for my quirky nature. Thanks for sharing.

I share your fascination for detail! :salute:

I don't know why the stamp was rotated in the first place. Stamping was probably done with some kind of presser. Maybe after some time the W-K cartridge needed to be replaced and they simply inserted it without thinking about it, and it got 90 degrees rotated, the explanation could be that simple. Otherwise I can't see any reason for rotating it.

Used the tip on the can opener tool to pop the clips on the 2 struts holding the rear hatch door up on my son's Santa Fe, so he could R&R them...

I was initially skeptical of Victorinox oil before I learned that it was "Food friendly".  I picked up two of them in December and now I am a believer.  I even use it to clean my blades when they get gummed up after using them to open packages.

Like the photo!

True, and it's pricey as well. However, I picked one up at a sale and I like the oil. Plus it's easy to apply with the tip on the bottle.
As an alternative I like Ballistol oil. Just like Vic-oil it's food safe, but it has a particular smell. So I'm back to using Vic-oil.

For cleaning gummed up blades I like white-spirit best. Or acetone. With the latter you have to be real careful not to get it on your scales. It will ruin them in an instant.
Also very good for cleaning is a sonic cleaner. Just fill it up with luke warm or warm-hot water and a dash of dishsoap.

And thanks for the compliment on the photo ^_~

Used my SAK to open up the Lego set I'm about to put together.

Hi FB
This is one of the best Lego kits ever.
My other half got it for her birthday a couple of years ago (from me of course!!)

It's on permanent display in our house on top of a bookcase - We point it out occasionally to visitors - No-one believes it is even Lego till they get close.
Lots of really fun features in the set eg "Make Lego - Not war", the lava lamp etc etc and incredibly true to life - pop up roof, fold away bed, sink etc -  the driver's cab is amazing.

Here is the designer talking about why and how they conceived and made this set!!

I've built it and was it ever a fun build!  I bought a light kit (inbound) that will go inside of it and also light up the head and rear lights!
I'll have to watch that video, thank you for posting the link!  :cheers:

I used the phillips screwdriver on my Spirit to remove a license plate from a car today at work. This thing digs in and doesn't play!

Installed a "peep hole" in our front door today.
Don't know the actual translation, but over here it's called litteraly "door spy"

The Swisschamp came in handy.

Used the small blade to cut away some remaining material.

Afterworths it seemed that the inside needs to be screwed in by using the small cutouts, which are apart way to far to use a screwdriver.
Luckely, the spine of the caplifter worked flawlessly!

Fixed a central heating system with my Handyman.
The pressure was low so it didn't work. I had to refill the system, but the hose connecting it to the waterline was busted.
The o-ring was worn down and it sprayed water everywhere.
I made a new hose out of two older ones and connected the central heating to the water line. Used my pliers to turn the valve which was missing the key.
