SwissChamp with Cofee Plants

I love the SwissChamp, but at the moment it's a toy to play with when I'm sitting on the couch. It still needs cleaning anyway.
The cofee plants are grown from fresh beans I got at a cofee bar/store. They were for demonstration purposes, to show what the beans look like.
I got to take some home when I askes, but the dude said I would never be able to grow a plant from them. Now I have two of these.
Sadly they are not doing that well at the moment, Ever since we moved the leaves are getting more brown.

Those are some mean-looking blades.  Swiss made on the single layers?

I was wondering about the Swiza, does it have rubberised scales? how do those hold up? Is it easy enough to retrieve from your pocket?

Mac Unit - you have a lovely Swisschamp there. Why do you want to go wondering about swiza's? It would be like foregoing that delicious coffee you have, and drinking some puddle water instead.  :pok:

The Swiza has ruberised scales, softer than the wenger Evo versions.

Despite the negative perception/opinion from some who were offended that anybody dared to produce another SAK/did not like their advertising/jumped on the bashing bandwagon/etc. they seem to be selling well and are now a lot more widely available.Some issues were encountered with them, initially, but i do not know if they are still there, in newer production models.

It looks different and for us that have many, similar looking SAks, it adds a choice.

They may not be the product of 100 years of experience, but they are not some low quality product produced in someones basement, in a third world country, as some tend to imply.
If you are happy with LM, Gerber etc you will be happy with a Swiza

Well it definitely sounds like they've won your loyalty and that says a lot.   I think they seem pretty cool and have watched a couple videos about them.  I think Victorinox and Wenger (to a slightly lesser degree) have earned a very loyal and protective following over the years, but everyone should always keep an open mind.   Vic & Wenger's illustrious history and longstanding affiliation with the Swiss military really defines what a SAK actually is to a lot of us, so it's not a big surprise that the new kid on the block has a tough go at it.

 :) :cheers:
