The story made short: my 1999 Explorer was confiscated in 2015 in Paris and I'm using versions with glass lens 6x MG since then.
I have just done a "nostalgic purchase", buying a new in box Explorer with same details old mine had, being a second half 90's knive. You know: grey frame, larger driver, silver rivet on scissors, hook, crossbow and cross on the tang, no pinhole, etc...
Now I'd like to know your opinion about the use you guys would give to this older knive:
a) store it like a gem in its box for my "heirs" as I'm father of two Explorer users
b) use it as is, with its older scales (perhaps matching with an old rounded "Pat" mini driver, as I did with mine)
c) use it with brand new plus scales, adding the three plus tools: mini driver, pen and straight pin
The main problem I see with options b and c is the possibility of another confiscation
I'd much appreciate your opinions
