So, we all love our heavy duty, hard to kill, die hard tools, don´t we?
More prybar than cuttingtool, nukeproof...

Thtat´s the way it is, right?

Something smaller than a Handyman or a Herkules won´t so it, for a multitool we choose at leat the Spirit or even better, the Original Swiss Tool?
..big Divers Watch, 600feet waterproof.
We are Men! Whoohah!

Sometimes, it can be a little smaller, at least for me.
And that´s what it looks like:

Small, lightweight, full of options.

So, when Victorinox announces a new Limited series of the venerable Classic, for the sixth time by the way, your´s truly has to have a look.

It was a contest, which brought us these new motives, all from the animal kingdom :-)

That´s the way to go, well earned win, I´d say!

Being a series of ten pieces, you´re in for a ride, so grab a beaverage, and have some fun!
Front and backside have different prints on them, nicely done, as always.

Here we go:

That´s the Honey Bee

Let me introduce the Guacamaya:

Joined by the Giant Panda:

Woody, oh sorry, the Woodworm sends his regards:

Told you, this will take some time...

My personal favourite :
The Wolf is coming home:

Glimmers own th enight:

I couldn´t resist.. Anybody in for a little pictorial humor?

The Dragonfly.

Noah sends his best wishes, The Ark:

Not to get political on this one, but sometimes a nice little Ark sounds like a pretty good idea... Not beacuse of rain either.

With this one, I hab to think of Snoopy, Omega (which is located in Swizerland as well as Victorinox) and the Speedmaster. So sweeeeeet:

Right now, I still don´t own a Omega Speedmaster Professional, so if any of you doesn´t need his, it will get in decent hands, promise :-)

Part of my family enjoys it there for years now, Turtles Down Under:

With ten models, we have the luxury to show all tools in one picture. My collection isn´t that small, but ten from the same model? Hardly so.
There are too many variations with Vixtorinox, but with the Classic, its a no brainer:

Knive, scissors, nailfile with small flathead screwdriver, tweezers and toothpick. And the ring for the keychain, of course!

A bummer, with some variants the knob is colored too! Never have seen that before.
Wouldn´t it be cool to have this feature with the white, red and black versions as well?
You bet it would!

I will burn, burn, burn, in a ring of scissorsssssss.....:

Forgive me Johnny...

Never bring a knife...:

Stone, paper scissors:

I´ll grind you...

Who , if not Victorinox...

Is there anything, which hasn´t been written about the alltime Classic, a bestseller for years?
Well, the guys and galy in Ibach must get something right, I´d say.

For me a least :-)

I realy like the choice of motive, so I got all ten, as you´ve seen. Obviously :-)

The quality is the same as ever, impeccable. Has been, is and will be for the next 1000 years I guess...

Ever got QC-hickup with Victorinox?

Nah, me neither, never nada, niente.

Me, a fanboy?

Do I own more than I need?

Could I arm a small army with my collection?
Hell yeah!

Does my wife love anyhow?
With all her heard, as do I.

The Classic Limited Edition 2017 is a real treat and I hope you had some fun reading my rumblings...

If you have any questions, shoot!

To us and those like us!
Cheers boys!

 :like: Great post
Although i dont own any limited edition classics yet, i do like looking at them, they are real nice works of art and very useful too, the two i will probably end up getting are the honeybee and the woodworm
I think though when they are all together they look fantastic, so probably i will end up with more than two, nice collection you have there  :tu:
