@enbloc what are the best vendors for SAK, etc?
I like BladeHQ, Victorinox.com and most recently the Swiss Knife Company out of Amherst, NH (free shipping/consistently lowest prices)

Victorinox.com does have the biggest in-stock inventory though for some of the rarer items and is the actual web-sales link for the Victorinox Company...

one year marlboro had offered 5 swiss army knives in that point promo they use to have. i got all five that year at the risk of getting lung cancer. this is the little guy, i think they call it the gent. not a fan of victorinox, the blades don't hold a edge well. but in a macgyver situation, well...watch out now! [laugh]

proud papa, here's my little guy.

That greens a good color, I like the 2015 too. Wish I had seen it then
With a little financial catch-up for the already issued knives, and a future filled with a "1 knife a year" commitment, I believe this will be a worthwhile opportunity.

I now own/or am waiting to arrive: 2016, 2018, 2019, 2020 Limited Edition ALOX Pioneer knives, The 2015 and 2017 will be the kickers though...

Nothing like jumping in head first I always say. I managed to sell a Bladeforums knife, and a GEC on FB. I have another GEC fs on the bay. For some reason GEC knives are hot right now. I also have the Swiss Army bug. I bought my Soldier new in 97, I think it cost like $17.00 back then.

It held to have the original box!

Another one to look for. You can find used Swiss Army Knives pretty cheap as people tend to think they aren’t collectible or worth much. They aren’t particularly expensive but even cheaper used. The quality is unsurpassed.

Love mine they are in my bug out bag. Now I’m thinking they are too collectible. Ironic as my dealer sold them to me on the cheap. I mean less than wholesale to get rid of them.

Since you took my knife for the first post (I believe it’s called the mechanic), I’ll post my backup.

Almost lost it to TSA once, but luckily had enough time before my flight that I could retrieve my checked bag to put it in. It’s so discreet, I often for get it’s in my wallet.
