very cool buddy. Try the wiki or other collector pages here.
I love the climber, Spartan with a scizzors!

I think we should edit all Wiki pages and change "scissors" into "scizzors". Who's with me? 8)
You should seriously visit vicfan.com. All the hoopy froods are doing it.

I am all for being part of a Climber Club!

 On the weekend I always carry my trusty Stayglow Climber . I love everything about this SAK. . The tool I use most is the scissors so I love that I get those great Victorinox scissors in a 3 layer SAK. As a kid I LOVED anything that was "Glow In The Dark" so for me this is the perfect knife. I am shocked how long the glow stays bright, and even hours later it often has just enough glow to make it stand out in the dark. Perfect for hikes close to home or when I go mountain biking .

I have actually done some testing.

 I left my Stayglow Climber near a lamp for just over an hour. I went to sleep at 11pm, and left it on my night stand. It was nice and bright. At 3:15 am I woke up and it was still very bright. Then at 6am I got up and it had dulled but I could defiantly still see it in the dark.
So that means it was nice and bright for a good 4 hours then dimmed a bit. Sure it wasnt super bright after 5 or 6 hours but I could STILL see it in the dark. I have been very impressed.

I also notice on both my stayglow climber and Classic SD it will glow brightly with even just a couple minutes in a well lit room. Often I pull out my car keys 5 minutes before I leave work at 10pm and I leave them on my desk. When I get in my car my classic stayglow on keyring is glowing very bright in my dark car from just 5 minutes under the office lights.
 When I leave my home on a sunny day and I am carrying my keys in my hand for just the one minutes it takes to get to my car I notice my Classic SD is glowing bright when I get in my car from just that one minutes in the sun.

As a kid I LOVED everything " glow in the dark" but was always disappointed because the toys were never as bright, and never lasted as long as they did in commercials. This is NOT the case with Victorinox Stayglow. It is far better than I expected

hey, thanks for the in-depth answer!   :salute:  I may start with the red SAK lanyard too but a P7 clip makes it less notice in pocket.
P.s. love the scissors.

 :salute: :climber:

"Old Faithful" is the model itself, not necessarily this specific "unit"... This one is maybe 3 or 4 years old. I've put in some new scales a few months back though...  :think: The surface micro scratches doesn't show in the pics.
I'm more attached to SAK models than any specific SAK units.  ;)

oh, sorry, there is a series of 91mm scales displaying American scenes, I thought Old Faithful, the geyser, may be one of them, then you changed to red.

Oh, ok...got it...  ;)
But no... nothing like that... I don't really buy any SE or LE Sak's... just the good old standard factory stock red classic models. The other scales where basic red too, just a bit beat up...  :P

Here's my favorite Climbers Small, a 70s and a 60s. :climber: The 60s has a very slight bend in the tip which annoys me but I am just leaving alone sice it's a lesson learned the hard way too many times. It also has a very degraded blade etching "Ottenburg Basel" which is the family cutlery shop in Switzerland where it was sold originally. The 70s is one I carry regularly.
Sorry for the filter, I saved from my FB since I just started using a real puter again.
