Well I've finally managed to get my one other grail item, a brand new OC Pioneer :drool:  According to the seller in Ebay, it was new old stock that was left over in a display case.  It is indeed brand new as far as I can tell, and I love it.  This is the first item I've gotten that I've actually had the feeling that I shouldn't carry it.  Now it doesn't really work as a carry item for me anyway, but would be just fine paired with my Swisscard once I get it.  I just don't want to mess up these scales.  I never really intended to carry one if I ever got it, so it won't bother me if I don't.  I love the rear scale without that foolish engraving plate messing up the looks.  I don't have a clue how old it is though.  The openers are the non polished version, but the blade and awl are polished.  Victorinox Switzerland Stainless Rostfrei on the blade tangAnyway, here are some pics :)







:drool: :gimme: nice pics! Love me some OC!

Still no changes for me.  Grail item would be Mr Leatherman himself signing a tool of mine.  Not sounding arrogant but some of the items I like I could afford, I just cannot justify spending the money on them.  I'm still much to frugal to spend dough on such things.

I'm not sure if I've got one. :think:  There's nothing rare, expensive or unusual that I really, really want.  There are things that I'd get if money was no object, but I think I'd only be buying them because I could, not because I had to. I like cheap, standard and well-used tools, which seem to be easy enough to find.

Meh,  I'm just not into the looks of the Sebenza.  It doesn't appeal to me in the least.  I feel like the BM 940 looks so much better.  I'm sure that one cost just over an arm leg and a few fingers  :D

While expensive certainly not unreachable. 

It would be neat to have a knife made by a custom knife maker, a "one off".  I wouldn't say grail item but neat no less.

Agreed, but if I went there I would go the extra mile and want to work with the knife maker. Not in the work-shop, that would be catastrophic, but in the design stage... you know so it fits me. That, or one from André Perret... damascene CyberTool anyone :D

Kinda what I was thinking as well.  I'm sure there are smaller knife makers who would be interested and not want truck loads of money either.

As I've recently started actually collecting instead of a bunch of knives/multitools I alternate between, I've formulated a list. 


Any 100mm Soldier. I'd really like a 1941 one, since that knife saw WWII. Any from Wenger, Victorinox or the "minor cutlers" is fine. 

Victorinox Officer Knife--'Cause it's the one that started it all!

Soldier Model 1961 w/Waffenkontrol stamp.


SOG Pocket Power Plier and some no-name German pocketknife engraved with the post 1994 American LaFrance logo.    I found these on the Wayback Machine when browsing an older version of the American LaFrance site.  I found these on a version of the site dated 2001.

Zippo money clip--printed with the American LaFrance "Bar N' Bird logo.  This dates to the 1970s.   American LaFrance operated here in my town (Bluefield, VA) from 1986-1994.   Thus, I want these three, as unlike the cheap $5 Chinese tactical knife they gave away a few years ago, since they are good knives and tools.

Soldier Model 1961--Year 1996 (my birth year)

You and me both.  I think the River of Fire Damascus was a limited run though. Good luck actually getting one for 615.

Lots of grails for me at the moment.  A few mint OC items and 2009 heritage limited edition would probably be right up there at the top though

Waiting for the time when I can finally say; this has all been wonderful but now I'm on my way.
