Yup. Those are my favorites!
Thank you, My Grandfather was a pilot in WW2 so these always remind me of some of the stuff he had around. Very cool.
Awesome. That's really neat.
I kinda wish there were some W.W.1 exclusives.
My Grandfather was in W.W.1
Of course, a couple of my Uncle's were in W.W.2

I’ve carried the same Victorinox Executive since 1999, regardless of what other knife(s) I have on me. Even though right now I’ve been keeping my non-essential spending to a minimum, I just bought an Alox Minichamp. I decided I’d give my Executive a break and try something new. I have other Alox models, but not an Alox Minichamp. And I like the durability of the scales, even if they lack the tweezers and toothpick. I ordered mine from Knifeworks, and it literally took only about 2 days to get here!

I have owned and used several knives and other tools made by Victorinox over the years. And I've got to say that for the money I find them hard to beat. NO they don't have quite the quality of a Spyderco or any of 3 other premium brands of knives/tools I can think of. But at the same time they are quite good tools for no more expense than you have to put out.

I also think their Swiss Tool and Swiss ToolX are both about thee best multitools out there in that class of multitools. I've used my one Swiss Tool that I bought back in 08 and I've used it a lot over the years. It's still in great shape and just as good as it was the day I bought it.

I've got a Victorinox boning Knife that I've had since 1998. It is model "407-F6" and it's been an incredible butchering and food processing knife and keeps an edge really great. I think I paid around $20 when I bought it at a local Gun Show. As I've said they are hard to beat for the price. They might be the best overall bargain out there for moderately priced knives and tools.

I have quite a few Vic's, and have edc'd one since 1983. I agree with you JD. I have a Spirit and Swisstool RS and can't think of any multitool even in the same hemisphere quality wise to the Vic offerings. The Swisstool and the Autonomy are my duty carries, and neither has ever come up short.
