Butch,
Maybe skip paying the phone bill for a while and buy one. :pok:

Seriously a gorgeous knife though. Top notch. :drool:

Never saw anything like that ever before. Really interesting set up. Screw on blade, survival kit in handles, holes so the blade can be removed and lashed to a stick to make a spear?  And from what I saw about that model online, there's a sharpening stone glued to the back handle. Seems like it would make sharpening weird.

Found almost everything on my earlier lists, except the Vic XAVT. :ahhh
But, those are easy to find, so it isn't a huge deal.

The new list is comprised mostly of tools needed to finish some sets.

1. West Marine Sailing Tool(the SOG made tool based on the PowerAssist with the Marlin spike instead of SE blade).

2. Paladin PT-525(made by SOG). They don't fetch a lot, but fate has it against me getting one, because I never have the money when one pops up for sale(my fault for not managing spare cash right though).

3. Gerber MP400 Fisherman(same issue as previous, but they come up for sale less frequently).

4. Pre-1985 Leatherman PST - non-Japan(already have two JPSTs). Probably the most costly of the grail tools listed.

5. Victorinox XAVT(carried over from original list).

But, as always, patience will win out(hopefully). If someone had told me back in 2017 that the collection would have so many rare tools, I would have declared them crazy. Like the Gerber Multi-Lock Trailrider, MP600 Cable Cutter, Multi-Lock FPRs(BN and NN), Multi-Lock Maroon Prototype, MP650 Evolution, Gerber Grappler, Gerber FLiK Fish, Leatherman Vista(and Hybrid), Leatherman Charge Ti(mint), Paladin PT-545, SOG PowerAssist(US version) EOD w/C4 punch,  etc. etc.

I’ve had so many knives that I’ve wanted, but a while back when I found out that certain things can be done to a sak I sooo wanted a custom, especially after feeling a alox for the first time!
So one day the Mrs said to go ahead and have it made, so it did! That’s my pride and joy, I rarely even carry it, even when I do the sheath has a clip so if it was to open and fall out of the sheath it would dangle from the piece of paracord, just a little over protective!

I’m currently working on one with similar tools but is a tad smaller, yet I won’t be so worried to carry it or scratch it! That is if I ever finish it.

Not a bad configuration, but I raise you this one.  And $142 CHF really isn't bad, but given, I think all the secondary tools are actually sourced from Victorinox, not made new.

A Limited Edition Vic Spirit RT is my holy grail. Look it up, its a Spirit X but with black handles and an "your companion for life" engraving on the blade. Mainly I want it because:
a) I love Spirits and
b) Already have the LE Climber RT and Master RT, which are the 91mm and 111mm pieces of the RT Series, so I just want the full trifecta!

VICKIES I own:
CLASSICS: Techno ( lost it ) , Edelweiss Green &  Black Alox
91MMs: Cybertool Lite ( My #1 fav EDC) , SoftTouch Climber RT, SoftTouch Desert Digital Camo Huntsman & StayGlow Spartan Lite.
111MMs AND BEYOND: One Handed Forester MWC ( My #4 fav EDC), Soldier 2008, Master RT, Hunter XS, TrailMaster MWC Desert, Rescue Tool Swisstool Spirit ( My # 2 fav EDC ) & Hunter Pro Alox Red.

Oh yes the Spirit RT is a beauty. I sold my Master RT and still have the Climber. I wish I had a few set!

I guess I should bump this thread as I got a few items I wanted to try.  I got a GECs that has become my favorite, the  Pemberton.  I also won a wonderful Bark River a while ago as well.  It was one I very much liked from the first iteration.  Bushcrafter in 3V.  I also got a Griptillian 555 that I had wanted a long while ago.  I picked up a Erik Frost Mora as well.  A little work and its in great shape to take out and use.

I don't think one particular item is my grail but the items above are items I had wanted to get into my hands and thankfully I did.   :woohoo:

Recently, I’ve received a couple of things I’ve been wanting. 

First, I was wanting a full custom big locking folder. I was fortunate to find a winner: a Morrish Daedalus in Ti and 3v.

Second, I had been looking for an early Chris Reeve Professional Soldier for several years and came across one NIB.

Congrats.  This is one SAK I had to try again.  Early on I was enamored with the Swisschamp to pay much attention to the Champion.  I gave away both I had and never looked back.  A member kept posting about theirs and other chimed in as they do and my interest was piqued again.  I picked one up in nice used condition and carried it to work.   :facepalm: How did it miss the wonderfulness of this SAK the first time around?  I was lucky and picked up a second also used but in better condition.  I now carry one to work everyday and one for my garden and around house use.
