IF YOU LOVE VICTORINOX SWISS ARMY KNIVES - READ ON. I have bought many knives in my life of 65 years. When I found this knife at a Estate sale I couldn't believe my luck. I immediately bought it without trying to get a better price.
It wasn't cheap and the owner told me just how old it was and where it had been. Needless to say this belonged to one of those rare old U. Soldiers who actually fought in 2 wars. I have one of these already - and it belonged to my father so needless to say that's my keeper.
This knife belongs with some one who will actually add it to a collection or use it from time to time with their grandson or son. This was bought in Europe and is an officers knife from what Swiss Army in Connecticut tells me. I sent it there for inspection first.It is is top flight condition as the pictures can tell. Colonel (the manager) told me that the small knife does hook just a bit but he would never touch that since it works perfectly, in the pictures you can see how it just barely touches the larger blade when closed. Each blade or tool is dead on sharp AND TIGHT!
These tools and blades are absolutely firm and are also dead on sharp. Clean Clean Clean - The pictures you see are the actual pictures I took of it after simply wiping it down. The stainless steel is just stellar, and the RED Scales are almost flawless.
This knife has NEVER been taken apart for any reason. The tools are all sharp and useful as if they were new.This knife is 3.5 long (without the bail). THE BAIL - trying to find a Swiss Army Knife with this bail alone is hard enough. But to find one in tact and in great shape is another great find. This bail is far more robust and designed to last for those who wanted to run a lanyard through it.
