 :tu:. Definitely Starbucks!!
Holy smokes!

Have you been hired by Victorinox to get fans all ginned up to boost Q1 sales or something?

More power to ya, but I'll just be watching.

Worst case scenario, head over to Def's get em before they go to Ebay thread. You didn't say they have to be new.

Between Def's sales thread and Lynn LeFay's cheapo depot reviews, in a pinch, many could be got for less money than the price of a trip to Dunkin Donuts. Certainly Starbucks

I haven't been to Starbucks since this challenge began, so I'm about $30 ahead.  :tu:
It's day 6 and I'm looking for today's purchase.  I bought 3 SAKs yesterday.  Two from Def's sale and one Vagabond on eBay.  Just love those Vagabonds.
Regarding snow, the forecast pushed it back to 10pm.  If it did snow, it has already melted.
Gotta go shopping.  :cheers:

Day 6 and Wenger Wednesday, I bought this Wenger:


Broken backspring  :facepalm: and I probably should have waited for a nicer condition one, but I liked it and hopefully I can get it repaired.  If not, I guess I could always resell.

Thanks for buying that SwissCard, now I don't have to :)
Happy to help, although sometimes he has more than one.  :pok:

Looks like it. Or he sold yours twice.

You should seriously visit vicfan.com. All the hoopy froods are doing it.

I hope so too.

Good thing I paid right away.

It is a looker.  I love the shield and the bail. If I "had" to resell, hopefully I'd get most of my money back.  But knowing me, it's hard to part with SAKs.

I will try, but it has to go to Switzerland because the US does not repair, they only replace with current stock.

Nice SAK. Sorry to hear about the broken back spring. I think I would try sending it back and get it fixed and a spa treatment.  :like: :tu:

I know!  And to think the logo has to do with Austria Mountain Rescue...it seems white would not be optimal.  :think:
