Hello Huntsman, I'm pleased I could offer a little edit  :salute:

Yes, I think it would look better to have the image section above the pouches, after the variations section. A small change but it will probably look better.

Dear sirs here’s a picture of the deluxe leather sos set from 1989, after doing research I think the double pouch came after this .
Thank you

Hi 11sumos

Welcome to MTo - And thanks for the pic - Yes I think we are in agreement with each other

After a few years, someone on FB noticed I accidentally switched names and PNs of Delemont Juniors 03 and 09. Here is the corrected version of the poster. I sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.  :cheers:

Thanks so much Nele - That was quick work   :salute:

I sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.  :cheers:
Don't be silly -  :twak:    Very likely this was never noticed, or caused any confusion/issue until now
And the benefits of these amazing images, and the work to create them, far outweigh any tiny error like this!!

I'll upload it now

PS. And as I said on FB - IT's Wenger's silly numbering system that caused the error
In what world is 09 smaller then 03

PPS. Glad to see you still left it at the 2020 models -
A nice full picture - with a date - is better then a later one where models start to drop out!!

Would prototypes be eligible for entry? I had a wild hair to look for Aussie-themed models, like an "Outback" or "Walkabout" and sure enough I found a factory prototype,  long gone, from arizonacustomknives.com in their archive. (Search under the name and "sold" as parameters.)

I reckon if one liked the pattern enough, one could be cobbled from an OHT by dropping the opener layer, tho you'd still have the backside tool, like the old Cowboy and Alpineer.

We don't usually include prototypes or customs.

This one here looks like a Sentinel ?   ???  Edit: Ah just seen it has a saw

And $449 as the original price?    :think:   You gotta be kidding

Picture of the Deluxe Kit posted above is from a Victorinox SAB 1991 catalog.

As for the "prototype", I have the same one but with a clip at the back and it's not the only one I've seen (but not too many and not on any website or in any of the catalogs). I assume it was made as a part of B2B offer (if I remember correctly some of those had ads or graphics on the front scale).

Here's mine  ;)

P.S. On Vic 84mm general page between the Family Poster and the poster itself there's a typo "This image is of the of the currently..."

Sorry, my bad... all's fine on the 84mm page  ;) :cheers:

As for the prototype, I would go for "Sentinel variation" because we don't know much about it.

Sorry for not sending a postcard, PO doesn't work due to the holiday  :D

Hi SAK Fans,

There is a bit of a debate going on over here about how we describe the orange peeler in the Executive
https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,91602.msg2450078.html#msg2450068

Please let us know your thoughts here or there!!   :tu:

Great spot by new member Zimbo Jay of an error in the awl tools page

This style awl was also used in the Wenger Professional series

It is corrected now

I tried to upload this year's catalog to the wiki, but not sure what to actually do. Just gonna drop the link here for someone more knowledgeable.
https://exhibitorsearch.messefrankfurt.com/images/original/mics/10000001202401/0010074160/1702574004301_4129721016.pdf

85mm line and small Cybertool are gone (which I think we knew) and there's a new Swisscard style "smart card wallet" which I think is new news. I think there's more gardening/pruning knives than there used to be, but might just be ones I wasn't aware of.

Thanks BPR - The catalogue is in the Wiki now - (Only admin can upload PDFs for security reasons )

Shall we mark all the models that are not in the 2024 catalogue as retired in the Wiki ?   ???    :think:

There has been so much change and speculation recently (Vic Spain etc etc)
And it is quite confusing as the website has models that are not in the catalogue - Eg  the 85mm Delemonts and the CT 29
Maybe these are still there because they have stock to use up?  ???

So the question is - Should the catalogue be the definitive source of current product line/availability?    :think:

PPS. It's interesting - As it used to be the other way around - ie there were models in the catalogue that were not on the website !!!

PS.   Just did a very quick check on the 91mms and 111mms

There are lots of models not marked as retired in the various Wiki pages - That are not in the catalogue    :cry:     :(   

..... Or do we wait until they drop off the website?  ???

In light of not having an "official" statement from Vic indicating that the models that do not appear in the catalog are actually discontinued, it would be hard to use the word "discontinued" as a definitive statement.

However, being that historically if a model does not appear in the catalog it usually means it's been discontinued even if there's backstock still left to sell.  I think we could use the verbiage "potentially discontinued", or something to that effect, until we can revisit the statement at a later date, perhaps somewhere closer to the end of the year.

That's my 2cents.  Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk!

Hi Huntsman,

I guess it's a question of what's more important, convenience or topicality.

Although I have to admit that I would consider it a bit weird if the Wiki listed SAKs as discontinued while they can still be readily had at Vic's website, I reckon it would be asking too much of the Wiki moderators to constantly monitor Vic's webstore and match it against the catalogue. Furthermore, the catalogue shows us the near future, so marking something as "discontinued" which doesn't show up in the latest catalogue is not per se wrong imho.

Just my five cents.

Cheers,

Simon

It does kind of raise the question - why doesn't Vic make a statement about these discontinuations themselves? Is this standard practice from the company?

I would be tempted to wait for an official statement from Victorinox, if we think that one will be forthcoming before the next ice age. If we can't expect to hear anything direct from the horse's mouth, as the saying goes, then the best we can do is to agree upon a set of criteria that qualifies as retirement/discontinuation for the Wiki and stick to it as best as possible.
