This is my latest Victorinox 111mm slide lock knife. It is a model I have several of from before called the Rucksack. This one came in a blister
type packaging. This is one of my favorite models because it is so lightweight, slim and functional. The Forester model liner locking is the model that replaced the Rucksack.
It is mentioned around that the slide-lock category is retired. This you can see from all the new releases of the liner-locking models during the last years. That said I am not 100% convinced
that the slide-lock is completely gone. Victorinox is such a gigantic Company that only time will tell. It is for sure that most of the models are transformed into the services range construction and that after the merging of the two factories we got a new
product range that could have influenced it. To be honest I am a fan of the services range construction but I also very much like the slide-lock models. Many enjoy the lightweight, slim and the nice functionality on them. They will go a long way for most things.
So I decided to secure myself another Rucksack because it is probably a model that will be missed. So far it is possible to get several of the older
models if you search the web. This one got the big V tang stamp and open spring construction. About the Big V I do wonder some on it. If Victorinox use both big V and small v still based on other knives I have seen. Anyhow
this is a very nice Rucksack SAK!
