Same here mate  :rant:

Mine is still living in Germany (awaiting pick - up by DHL) Delivery date is marked as the 23rd (yesterday  :rofl:)
I hate Vic' UK simply because it's not UK!!!!  :poh: :crash: :bnghd:

Same here lads. Ordered on Tuesday and no further movement since then. Permission to feel grumpy sir? :salute:

Excellent news, Myron! No idea why mine still hasn’t been picked up by DHL - I’ll certainly be asking Victorinox what went wrong when it does get shipped - it’s not been like this before…. Cracking pics though!

I don't know how they are across the pond, but in the States the answer to "what went wrong?" when DHL is involved is always, DHL is involved. Not really sure how they're still in business, since I've worked for multiple companies that had explicit policies to never use them, regardless of cost, shipping time, etc.

Definitely a yellow green color.  My wife agrees, so it’s official 😁

This!   I have never had an experience with DHL that wasn't somehow delayed, lost, stuck, or otherwise screwed up.

Good to know I’m not alone! Previously DHL weren’t that bad and shipments from Victorinox usually turned up within the 3-4 day window…… well, Jud65 permission granted and I’m feeling grumpy too!

My wife says it's chartreuse. I can't disagree.
I've been carrying my PX for a couple days and I like the color more everytime I pull it out.

Sorry to read that…. They’re really not much use as a courier anymore, so why does Vic still use them - the 3-4 day shipping is absurdly inaccurate!  :facepalm:
