Great find CeHo!!

Like Aleph, my current grail is a Syph custom.
Unlike Aleph, I ain't got one.

I'd love a ribbed Voyageur but not at it's current going rate.
And I'd love an exposed rivet SAK with bail.

:popcorn:

Buy now or regret later

I was hunting the knife for years. I asked the seller if he is sad he doesn’t have the knife anymore. He opened a box and shows another one  :facepalm:

That is good though. Less chance of the seller developing "seller's remorse." :cheers:

My grail knife is a Classic with the blade opening away from the keyring, and a Camillus electricians knife with the screw driver removed, to make it a single layer. Those would make me happy.

Those special Runs on the Benchmade 940 and 941...
The ones with Damascus blades, or titanium scales  :drool:

These were the knifes I was drooling over when joining the german knife scene years ago...the most beautiful and practical EDC knifes I have ever owned (had a green 940 which I gave to my Girlfriend, she loves it), in addition to the 710, a classic knife I sadly have never owned.

Wish I had the money and german knife laws were'nt that stupid regarding OHO blades.  :rant:

MYERCHIN Captain Pro, blade and marlin spike, titanium.


Specially for salt water environment. German 440C equivalent, but said to have even better corrosion resistance.

Tough on a pensioner's purse.

If you finally manage to get one make sure it is the latest version with the blade flipper, very handy. They upgraded their knives recently with the blade flipper thing.

Maybe you need to try a Rambler...

I've finally been able to acquire the main grail items I have been lusting after these last few years.

A Peter Atwood R25, Wenger Titanium Ueli Steck edition, and a Vic Voyageur.

My next grails will be the Wenger Esquire Titanium 80% serrated (though I would also like the 100% serrated version), the Wenger VIP and the Wenger Nature series knife that just has the straight ribbing with no animal image.

In the meantime I've purchased a Wenger PTC and some titanium scales to make myself a Titanium PTC ( I may have a slight titanium addiction).

I suppose a red ribbed Voyageur would also be pretty neato but I also like being able to pay rent so that might not be realistic.

-Wes.

Work EDC: Vic 8GB Jetsetter/Swisscard/Olight I1R EOS/Atwood R25

Weekend EDC: Vic Voyageur or Compact or Pioneer X/Stayglow Rambler/LM Squirt P4/Fenix E01/Atwood R25

Neatest items in collection: Full Wenger Titanium Series, Vic Voyaguer, 84mm Golfer with Long Nailfile, Several Atwoods.

These days I focus on 84mm with Scissors, odd Wenger Knives, and bladeless versions of SAKs so I can carry them at work.

My only grail for now is a Farmer X.

I've got the needed donors. Just need to find the courage to build it... or find someone experienced who can.

I'm looking for a Wenger "luxury" cigar cutter in good shape.   I have the aluminum scaled one and the new Vic-Delemont version, but this is elusive to me

Quote from: gerleatherberman
Gerber MP650. - Found mint condition.
Kershaw A100. - Found NIB.
SOG Paladin PT-540. - Found near-mint condition.
Leatherman Vista/Hybrid. - both found NIB
Victorinox XAVT.


Getting there. Gotta take a break from buying for a bit, but will finish that list soon. Bought a Gerber Flik Fish NIP today on eBay(for half of what they were selling for last year) and am in the hole with the MT funds, as well as just ordered brake rotors and pads for my car.  :ahhh

There are others to replace the old list with though. Just like the Vista led to the want for the Hybrid, the PT-540 has led to the want for the PT-525. Now with the Flik Fish on the way, I'll be looking at finding the MP600 and MP400 Fishermans pretty soon.

New updated "top 5" grail list:

SOG made Paladin PT-525.
"Pocket Survival Tool" marked PST.
Gerber MP600 Fisherman.
Gerber MP400 Fisherman.
Victorinox XAVT.

Likely ain't happening, unless Emerson makes some kind of commemorative. And even then, I probably wouldn't be able to afford it.  Unlike the Victorinox Master Craftsman, which was a run of the mill late 1970s Master Craftsman ordered by NASA, this one wasn't. Part of an order of 30 units in 1999, plus 4 prototypes. The cutout in the tanto blade is to open the rations.
