I didn't think I'd see this again
« on: December 28, 2021, 05:44:15 PM »
Ok, it's nothing special as far as collectability is concerned, but it is important to me.

This little SC was the last birthday present my Mother gave my father. So it's irreplaceable.

When I got divorced a few years ago I thought it was gone for good. Fortunately my son has been looking after it for me, even though he really didn't know why.

I'm glad  it found its way back to you, and that your son now knows why it's important to you.  :cheers:

What a beautiful story, I'm delighted about it going back into your hands !!!  :tu: :cheers:

That's funny, because a few days ago I also found the Champion my father got gifted by my mother for his 30rd birthday !
I always loved looking at this big boy. It's in really rough shape, but I won't fix it, I will leave it like that I think.

I hope you will have fun with your SC  :woohoo:

Thanks guys, as much as I'm happy that I got the knife back, I'm proud of my son for him subconsciously realising  that it belonged to me. He's only 10, so he worked this out when he was 4 or 5.

I’m glad you found yours, especially because of your mother. I realised the other day that I should own a black 1990s SwissChamp, but I haven’t carried it for over a decade, and now I have no idea what happened to it. It’s possible I gave it to my older brother, it’s possible I simply stashed it somewhere I’ll never remember. I tore my house apart the other night, but came up empty.
