Why the Swiss Federal Shield?
« on: November 23, 2017, 11:39:57 PM »
You know, this sort, maybe flat on the top, more round on the bottom:

Found on the Victorinox Soldier, Wenger SI, the famed Black Beauty, etc, basically all the SAKs used/sold by the Swiss government.  :think:

Why do you prefer it to the Victorinox (or Wenger) shield?  :think: :think: :pok:

Apologies if I pictured the wrong shield or called it the wrong name.

All hail the hook!

Honestly, I prefer the new cross more. My favorite is the simple "+" on the old cross alox.

If the trees blew down the wind and no one was around, would the alphabet song really go backwards?

The old cross IS kinda cool.  :whistle: :gimme:
I like the new cross too.  :climber:

Still unsure about the federal shield though.  :facepalm:
I'm on the lookout for a 1999 Soldier/SI(psst... Got one for sale?  :pok: :whistle: ) though, maybe I can make up my mind about the shield after I get one.  :salute:

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

That shield only appears on the Soldiers... That’s what makes them appealing...

The Economy scales had that shield too, the one on my Climber (what's left of it).  :D

Lol, I keep thinking that the shield on that SAK is a tad small for the size of the SAK.  :rofl:
Very pretty though.  :salute:
