I'm checking in today as well. Swisschamp has been my regular carry these last few months, it's a non threatening tool to carry, especially with my dozens of hospital and clinic visits these last few months. Long story short, getting a tumor removed and then after that's done I have to get a second round of back surgery on L3, L4 and L5. Needless to say I haven't been on a good mood for a while, but seeing the posts here keep me in decent spirits.

LW, I'm really sorry about the turn of events you got handed.  I'm glad you're here, and please feel free to PM me if you need a place to vent.

Aw...that's rough, LW. Praying for you just now. Feel better!

Regarding SwissChamps, I need to get another one! I want to get one in rough condition I can keep and carry without feeling like I need to sell it.

I want to rescale mine in the Second World War theme.  In the meantime, here's mine.

That's the trick Jim.  Most of my gear consists of users.

Thank you both Jim and Barry, I appreciate it. The way I look at it, it's not for me to understand God's plan in life, we just have to roll with it!

This is the original SwissChamp with the SOS kit that I bought more than 30 years ago.

I thought is was the coolest piece of kit since sliced bread.LOL I also couldn't believe that Vic made a black scaled knife because I had never seen one up until then.

I have the original purchase receipt,I paid $89.95.That was a princely sum at that time,12/04/1989.

I remember those days Toolguy, and you're right.  Now, that's probably the best investment money wise anyone could make given what you got in return!

Even though it's quite old ,I'm still thrilled and fortunate to own such cool toys.

Well, I still don't have a SwissChamp in my possession, but I just won two from Boulder City off eBay.......

One is pretty beat up but functional. I think I will keep that one and sell the other.  :D

Functional is the keyword for me Jim.  I've had some collector pieces over the past few years, but I've pretty much moved them on.  I like to use mine!

Speaking of which, I had some mag glass fun with mine today.  No success, but smoke from a dried leaf!

very cool Barry,  if I'm not carrying a Little one, I may try the black or the Hoff with the pliers! Both are grey mag and fluted CS, no hole for straight pin.....need a P7 clip....

I like the best mags Tony.  The field of view isn't terrific, but I'm convinced that I can get a fire going with one of the Sun and the tinder are right.  I went from having no gray frames to having only gray frames, purely by accident.

Blasted autocorrect... I meant gray mags  >:(
I'm looking at extending Swisschamp Sunday thru at least Friday for me.
