Victornox Trekker/Trailmaster OHO non serrated

Hi team,

Is this a model Victorinox still produces? Im looking to replace my Soldier with the serrated blade, I can only seem to find the Forrester with a corkscrew or non OHO versions online. 

Cheers,

Nope.
Plain edge Trekker is discontinued.
Don't recall when exactly.
One or 2 years ago.

Buy now or regret later

@ Mechnikal I thought as much thanks.

@ Rich S thanks for the link. Thats the model which i own, I was hoping to find the plain edge version. Might have to cannibalise my Sentinel  :D

Or you can do what I did...

I grabbed an older GAK, swapped scales from my Sentinel. Had to cut out the area for the Phillips, but it wasn’t hard.

Thanks!  For me though, it would be more to my liking if I could replace the wood saw with the metal saw/file. I have more use for a file than a wood saw.

Add in scissors and we’re all set


Same as I am trying to do with my alox Farmer X. I have sourced the threaded barrels/pivots but need to source a 91mm metal saw/file. Swap out the wood saw and I have a near perfect SAK for ME.

Give the serrations a fair chance, before you sharpen the blade and let the serrations wear down to the point where you can sharpen the whole thing to a plain edge .  You might be surprised with the serrations... I was.  They have their uses, and they're well designed
