All of the photos in two previous post are mine and can be used in SAKWiki.

I also have some photos from the internet that show Gen.1 Card (all solid black too) that looks almost identical to Gen.2 (even has that inner marking for scissors) but doesn't have a protractor. Inscription above the card is changed to "10 Functions" (7 features is omitted) and has a newer PN at the back cover (0.7133).

Thanks Nele     :tu:

We'll definitely get these into the SCard Gallery - Need to work out how to use them on the page via links or direct etc etc

Hello Knights and SAK Editors

I thought that the model table in the Classic LE page was getting a bit cumbersome   ::)
So I have created an alternative format

The new one is about 60% the size of the original (1.5 screen-fulls vs 2.5 on my laptop)    :tu:

Both are on the page at the moment - New one at the bottom
https://sakwiki.com/tiki-index.php?page=Victorinox+Classic+SD+Limited+Edition+Annual+Series

Which shall we go with?    ???     I am in two minds !     :think:
Slightly prettier format vs Save space and see more on the page     .... I am leaning towards the new one!

Bugger - Just checked on a Smart phone
The table gets a bit screwed up due to text wrapping - Looks like we need to stick with the original.

Thoughts? Other ideas ???

The original looks better in my opinion.

Thanks for the great addition  of Dave Arnold's book to the Books page Reinier and Jnoxyd

I re-organised the Additional Galleries a little - Creating a new subgallery for the books
Can be accessed by the gallery button right at the bottom of the right hand menu bar

The page is also due a minor restructure which I will get around to sometime

No problem. It was mostly Jnoxyd's work.

A book gallery makes sense. Thanks! It took me a while to find the gallery where the other book images were located. Probably not the best subgallery :)

Hey bismouth - Thanks so much for these details - The images are in the gallery and the page updated with links and model number
Apologies for taking so long to get around to this
Nele - Have not forgotten your Swisscard images !!   :popcorn:

I have just made an amazing discovery .......  :D     :o     :tu:

As many of you know we have mainly jpeg images in the Wiki, however we do have a few pdf files - Which mainly feature in the Catalogues page.

One thing I never liked about that page is that when you click on a PDF catalogue it just got downloaded to the user's PC.  :(

I have just discovered that there is another option which, when a user clicks on the link, the catalogue is displayed     :woohoo:   
This is much friendlier for our users (way quicker too)    :tu:    ....  Of couse they can still download if they want to.

Very happy about that!!    :D    :D    :D

This discovery was triggered by some work that Max is doing on the catalogues.
He has found a fabulous document:
Everything you need to know about multi-tools and cutlery    - which was written by Victorinox in 2008 - It's really great
- I think MiniChamp may also have pointed out this document to us earlier.

Well it is in the Wiki now - So please go and have a look.
https://sakwiki.com/tiki-index.php?page=Victorinox+Swiss+Army+Knife+Catalogs

Thanks Max

My pleasure  :hatsoff: I'm still digesting the document, some good Sunday afternoon reading.  :salute:

I have another 106 Victorinox and related documents that I've pulled off the web, that I still need to work my way through to see if there are any other gems. I think I may start a separate thread to begin listing these and seeing what interest they garner.  :popcorn:

Could I get a passcode? Saw a few edits I wanted to make while poking around today, and realized I can't sign up to make them.

OR... you could list the pages/text you think should be edited and let the current admins take care of it, in case the editing is indeed needed.

Thanks Aloha, my contributions have been sparse recently, but I've just updated the Classic page which was missing the Classic Colors and Classic Precious Alox Collections, both new for 2021.

35 new identifiers - I had to list the new names. My favorite description is Cupcake Dream.  :cheers:

Thanks Max - Great stuff - Yes a very obvious omission     :tu:

I am soooooo glad you listed the nunmbers horizontally in their groups not vertically     :o

Just a thought - Should we put the name of the group at the beginning of the list rather than at the end? Maybe following a group identifier - Or even first as a 'title' for the line?      ???

PS. I never even knew about the Precious Alox series - That's really 'hot off the press'
Lots of sites do not have an image yet - But they are there on Victorinox.com

They look really nice - Biut pretty pricey - It seems - $50 usd
And the classic red - sorry iconic red is definitely the best ...... IMHO

It really is an interesting shift for Vic to releae all these colour choices on the Classic
I wish they'd offer them on the Rambler! Which is a so much better model.
