Picked up a new Executive from my local agent (stock moves more slowly my neck of the woods), and also some new scales for my 1980 Companion, as the original scales were not staying on.

A few differences to note on the older Companion, other than the obvious missing keyring. The pivots are smaller, the large blade's tang is a tad deeper with VSSR vs. VSS, the small blade has a bit more of a belly, the notch on the orange peeler is sharpened both sides (vs. chisel), the file has two cut directions, scissors are older style with single spring and screwed pivot, all the nail nicks are a little smaller and all the springs are a little stronger.

But overall, quite impressive how Victorinox has kept the identity almost identical over 40 years of manufacture.  :tu:

I'm now ready for December - both of these will certainly feature during the challenge!  :salute:

Cool score, Max! I bought a black version a year or so back after reading the CY thread - I’ve since given it black tools for added stealth! :facepalm:

I am going to sharpen and polish up my trusted sidekick before the challenge begins on Monday.

I carry this daily and have for some time now and it shows the battle scars.

Clearly deserving of a tune-up.

You can start early.  If you want you could even join the November SAK Challenge and choose the Executive. 
I realize Pit Carver already has the <75mm Badge, but CM Yo, could apply for that one.

Thank you both, I should be okay, but thought I should bow out just in case...plus I may post here and there for fun (not challenge)...but didn't want to have to each day in case I wasn't feeling well.
