Now that my birthyear SAK is on the way, I think at this point, my only possible remaining grail item would be an old cross red Pioneer.  Preferably either NIB, or barely used, but I know those are hard to come by for an affordable price.  Someday I'm sure I'll find one, but I just hope I'll be able to get it when I do.  Also, in order to be able to get one at some point, I should probably lay off any further purchases in the meantime.  I was fortunate to be able to get the '78 SAK, especially after telling my wife I was done getting more of these things for a while.  Once I get all my MTs/SAKs out of storage, I will likely have a for sale thread to help fund an OC red Pioneer.

If I had one it would have to be a user. Too many useful tools to let sit.

Cool birth year score !   

I wonder how hard it would be to find my birth year '67

Thanks Steve :)  Not sure how easy a '67 would be to track down.  The '78 took me over two years to get, but I wasn't trying too hard to find it either.

Left handed Spyderco Military.  I carry and use mine most days.  The lefty version would be perfect!

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 :)

My holy grail multi tool is an early Cabela's PST with hollow knurled screws and "Leatherman USA" etched in the blade :gimme:.  I saw one similar sell for $449 on eBay recently :o.

My grail items tend to be whatever tool is best for me for a specific job or setting. I never know what that is until I find it .... or build/mod it. I don't have any specific things that I consider grail items.... thankfully  :D

My holy grail will be impossible to ever find and I've accepted that.

It is the limited Wenger Ranger that was given to the Alinghi Race Crew. Wenger created a special version that incorporated a rescue cutter.

I think only 12 were ever made  :drool:

That's my holy grail!

I don't claim to know it all, but what I do know is right.

BO Minitool

Same here, though I'm in no hurry to get one.  Its just a missing piece from my Leatherman BO arsenal.

My feelings the same. Most Leathermans in the collection have their BO mate. Really I own my grail tool, a BO Supertool. The mini would just be icing on the cake.
