Years ago I spotted an olive green Money Clip with Eddie Bauer logo somewhere online, possibly on SAKWiki. I never found one for sale so eventually I stopped searching. But a while back, after having been on a “SAK Break” for a few months, I stumbled upon one by accident. They are pretty uncommon so I’m pretty happy with this one. It’s a nice shade of green.
One step closer to a complete collection of all 74mm scale colors and variations.
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.
This is a Victorinox Pioneer with alox scales in Apocalypse Green. It’s a lovely shade of green, very bright. It was part of a special run for Swiss Bianco consisting of several standard and non-standard (e.g. Sea Rancher) alox models.
I mainly collect 74mm and 91mm SAKs, but somehow I now own more 93mm alox SAKs than I thought I would. I have bought and sold/traded several more in the past (including a 2010 Damascus Pioneer, colored Classics, Farmers and Cadets, and of course a million Dutch Army Knives), and there is a mint old cross Pioneer in a sealed display case that is not in the picture.
I’m not an expert on 93mm SAKs but these are: green Farmer, black Pioneer with red shield, Swiss Bianco (+B) Pioneer in Apocalypse Green, +B gold First Mate, Syph007 custom HA black Pioneer with scissors, pocket clip, red anodized liners and Black Oxide tools, Syph007 custom HA matte gray Pioneer with scissors and brass liners and a regular Soldier (08).
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.
