Just a nice pic of a limited edition Climber with gold scales (basically SilverTech but 24 carat gold plated. GoldTech I guess?). It’s limited to “only” 20,000 pieces worldwide and comes in a nice LE box.
And two sets of the color twins: Spartans in new colors: translucent bright green and orange, plus matching fruit/tomato knives.
Look closely or you may not see them :)
These two SAKs feature a rather cool camo pattern made by Mossy Oak. It’s called New Break-Up and each knife uses a different/random part of the whole camo image.
The scales feel a bit like paper, I have no idea what material they are made out of and what kind of printing technique is used. They may or may not be cellidor or nylon. The Victorinox emblem is not a metal inlay but is printed in silver ink instead.
I bought these two SAKs on a trip to the United States. The one with the stars and stripes scales is a Super Tinker I bought in Portland, Oregon. The Boeing one is a Climber, bought at the Boeing plant in Everett.
I recently bought this Climber on a trip to London. It is available in the Victorinox Flasghip Store New Bond Street. On the front of the ruby red scales you can see the coordinates where the flagship store is located. The back scale features a (faux) skyline of London, including the Shard, the London Eye and the Tower Bridge. The skyline is printed in white, as is the text on the front. Brunnen, Ibach, Düsseldorf, Rio de Janeiro and São Paolo versions exist as well, and probably more.
You could probably buy this knife somewhere online as well, but I think as a souvenir knife you should really get it in the Bond Street Store. By the way, you can build your own Spartan there, they have a genuine SAK assembly machine.
I think I (finally) have all different colors of translucent scales that exist. Anyone know of any others? In 91mm, that is?
I know other colors exist in 58mm and 84mm.
