Black Victorinox SAKs

There is a thread on the MultiTool.org forums about black Swiss Army knives, with lots of great pictures.¬† I happen to like black cellidor scales a lot. In fact, it’s one of my favorite scale colors, along with green and any kind of colored alox.

Here are some of my black Victorinox SAKs. I have some more, including a black Compact (awesome EDC knife!), more Classics and a black SwissCard:

Black Victorinox Swiss Army Knives

A little info on the knives in the picture:

  • The knife on the left is a black Sentinel from the 111mm liner lock range. It’s the non-one hand opening version and only has one large blade;
  • A black alox Classic SD. The Classics are the most common Swiss Army Knives out there, but the alox scales make it a little bit more special. It does not have the tweezers and toothpick;
  • A soft touch Climber RT. This is a regular Climber but with soft touch scales. It also features a laser etched “Your companion for life on the road” logo on the large blade. This knife was part of the 2010 Victorinox On the Road tour;
  • Top center: a nice onyx Voyager. The Voyager is basically a Climber with an electronic timepiece and alarm in the front scales. It also has a nailfile on the multi purpose hook. The back scale contains a small pair of tweezers since there is no place for the tweezers in the front scale. The scales are of a different material, it feels more like translucent nylon than cellidor;
  • In the center of the picture there is a Michel Jordi Spartan. It has a gold plated corkscrew and keyring, the famous Michel Jordi cow logo on the blade, a flower print on the front scales (not shown) and a gold-colored insert on the back scales;
  • Below the Jordi is a 2010 Victorinox Pioneer Damascus. It’s a regular Pioneer model, but with a Damascus steel blade. The edging on the blade makes it a very pretty knife. It’s limited to only 2010 knives worldwide and comes with a certificate of authenticy;
  • In the upper right corner is a regular black alox Pioneer. Like the Damascus knife but with the normal stainless steel blade. I really like the 93mm (alox) series, including the Soldier model. The blade is a bit thicker than the blade on 91mm models and the knives have a “sturdy” feel;
  • Between the Pioneers there is a SwissChamp. For a lot of people, the Victorinox SwissChamp is the Swiss Army Knife. It has a ton of tools in a relatively small package. It’s an all time favorite;
  • In the bottom right corner there is another Classic SD. This one is from the National Flag series and has the Canadian flag on the front scales. I bought this nice little knife on our honeymoon in Canada, july 2009 ;)

I will get into more detail on some of these Victorinox knives soon :)
