Bottom Line:
I can’t help think that Victorinox made a mistake with this product. The more I look at this SAK, the more I love this tool load. If it wasn’t $200 I’d probably whip off the digital scales and use it for EDC. I may just carry it as is and enjoy it. I guess this is the ‘sleeper’ of the range...a great SAK to finish the range as a bonus day!

I agree with you 100%. I absolutely love this knife. I originally bought one for my collection on a trip to Italy back in 2012, since they were almost impossible to get in the US at the time (at least for a reasonable price). It became my EDC on that trip and was so good that when I got home, I stuck that knife in my collection and immediately began scanning eBay for a good price on a user. Ended up getting one for $40 and that knife is my absolute go-to for any camping/hiking trips.

Great story jazzbass  :like:
And you got a steal for $40. How do you find the LCD holding up after years of service? It seems to have a thick window to protect it, and it is a little recessed.  :think:

Max... thanks again for a great series of reviews and congratulations on your badge.  I look forward to any new write-ups you do.  Maybe a 60 day challenge (or 90)... maybe a book?   :salute:

PS. One more thought ......
The Expedition Kit should really be called the Traveller Kit or the Traveller Expedition (Kit) 
Although not if they take up Max's suggestion !
What do you think?

Just realised that this would not work - As Vic already have a 'Traveller Set'  - Which is actually a Huntsman Plus   :think:    with the pouch and compass
:pok: ........ Confusing Victorinox !!!       :twak:

Hey Knights
Max has very kindly done one extra bit of work for us, as promised, and converted the daily posts into a PDF document.    :woohoo:

This now has its rightful place in the (LINK:) 91mm Wiki page (bottom of first section) for all to enjoy and learn.
Note - It's a PDF so downloads from the Wiki - As opposed to being directly viewable - I will try and work out if it is directly viewable

Thank again Max for this most excellent thread and a fabulous artifact to add to the Wiki    :tu:    :salute:    :hatsoff:

Max, I had been following this thread like many others and just downloaded the pdf, but seriously, this material could literally be expanded and turn into a book.  Ever think about publishing one?

Thanks comis. Yes, with a bit of editing, it could be. Maybe a project for later this year.  :cheers:

That’s exciting, looking forward to that!  I would love to read even more thoughts of yours on selective products from different lineup(such as 130, 111, 84, 74, 58 or discontinued), with all those material, I’m fairly sure it’s gonna be a great read!

Thank you Aloha.  :hatsoff:

I really enjoyed this challenge and it gave me a good appreciation of Victorinox and their 91mm range.

I did a pdf version that got added to the SAKWIKI 91mm page.

Just been sitting at home recovering from a cold and read this from start to finish. Hats off to you for the dedication to carry out such a task, and to do it so well and thoroughly, without it being a dry toned affair.
As many others have said, thank you for your efforts and please let us know if you go down this road with other ranges  :hatsoff:

Thank you Storm  :hatsoff:
It was a great journey and I learnt a lot as I worked through the range. In the end, what I realized is simpler is better. And size has the final say in what finds its way into my pocket every day.  :salute:
The other Vic ranges have less appeal to me, so I don't think I'll make the same journey. I do like the Alox models, although that's a rabbit hole all on its own. Some of the 111 and 130mm models are also great, but they get a little too specialized for my needs.  :cheers:
The journey was also a wonderful way to feel part of this great community here at MTo. And in the end, this was what mattered the most to me.  :tu:

 :like: :iagree:  Still one of my favourite things to come out of this forum  :tu:

And a great addition to the Wiki.

Also we don't seem to see much movement from Vic in their SAKs these days - especially the medium to smaller ones - So I think the doc will stay current for a long time!

 :hatsoff: thank you Huntsman.
I agree. Vic seem content with their range and adding some limited editions here and there. I suspect the growth area is in their kitchen knives and related cutlery. No real innovation with their SAKs or SwissTools for some time now.
