One would believe that the flat screwdrivers are history. The little flat screwdriver tip on the can opener is actually becoming more versatile and not opposite! Be smarter than the rest and carry a Swiss knife folks.....

I have a big interest for SAK and Swiss knives. The Swiss are experts with slip-joint mechanisms and functionality. The absolute best is still Victorinox based on all the knives I have seen and collected in my time. The spring is perfected to a superb degree. The durability is unbeatable and that is a factor that makers outside Switzerland sometimes make mistakes. To avoid unnecessary movement during use and to makes sure the spring tension last a very long time during use. I do believe superb precision with dimensions and the correct hardening plays a key here. That spring is the best.

Hi! I am Trond Ole and i am a collector, researcher and enthusiast about Swiss Army Knives and other Swiss knives. I have had for about 6 years now. I am independent, free and do not represent or work for any Company. Best Regards
Helle Viking :))very nice one with a supernatural sharpness. I have one from before, this one got a darker sheath with inlay while the older one is lighter without inlay. laminated carbon steel With a core 58-59 HRC that is similar to O2 (steel called XC10 90/MV8. Wood machine :) Digital caliper read 4mm 100%. Scandi grind.........
This is my latest 58mm Classic SD model and this is the Limited 2018 Cappadocia model. It is very nice with beautiful decoration. It is also educational with the hot-air ballooning that is popular there. Small knives like this makes me happy!
Bel Horizonte
New Helle GT factory handle :)
I really like Helle knives, quality knives made by a wonderful traditional Company.
This is my latest sharpening/maintenance device. This is the Worksharp Guided Field Sharpener. This is a very versatile product and just perfect for pocket knives and folders. The manual is inside/under the abrasive surfaces held by magnets.
Superb safety SAK!

Hi Mr. Trond. is there any special way or rule to sharpen and maintain the sharpness of the awl and chisel? I haven't found such tutorial. Would you make some?

Trond 21.01.2020 09.08

Hi! Thank you very much for question. The awl and chisel can be sharpened by following the grinded angle on them. I will have it in my mind. BR Trond

Hi Trond! Question, do you know if victorinox at any time reduced the surface of the nail file like wenger did? I saw this in a couple of classic SD nail files

Trond 11.01.2020 19.20

Hi! Good observation. Yes it seems there are some differences on them, both Wenger and Victorinox.

Hi Trond! A doubt. Are the tools dating rules on Vic's regular and economic lines the same?

Trond 19.10.2019 18.22

I would say on the economy line without sewing eye up to 1987. With sewing eye 1985-1987 until today. The economy line got variations. BR

Trond 19.10.2019 18.18

Hi, good observation. The economy line does not follow the regular line. Some times it is close like the sewing eye can be 1985+ couple years on the economy.BR

Sebastián 19.10.2019 12.31

For example, if a Spartan economy line has a punch without a sewing eye, is it still pre 85?

The absolutte best is the Polyamid handles, the wood is more beautiful. Folding knives with wood is best for light outdoor use. BR

Thank you! What are your concerns about the fastness of the wooden scales of Hunter Pro? The blade itself is big, which encourages the user to do some hard work
