Victorinox SwissBeat

<!-- @page { margin: 0.79in } P { margin-bottom: 0.08in } -->

Longtime readers here will know that I have never been a fan of what I refer to as “Electronic SAKs” and yet last month I posted an article about my appreciation of a 1g SwissMemory model. Since then, I couldn't help but obtain a 1g SwissBeat mp3 player knife, but perhaps not for the reasons anyone was expecting!

New Ranger- In Yellow!

<!-- @page { margin: 0.79in } P { margin-bottom: 0.08in } -->

At this year's SHOT Show in Las Vegas Wenger was nice enough to show me their new models, and the ones that caught my eye the most were the yellow Patagonian Expedition models. Having been fascinated with the yellow EVOGrip 18 released two years ago, and the different colored New Rangers released last year, I'd been hoping for a yellow New Ranger this year. Wenger didn't disappoint me, although they didn't do it the way I'd expected!

New Spirit Versions

There have been rumors for some time now about a new tool from Victorinox. Some think it's a new plier tool like the Spirit, while others believe the rumors were in reference to the new Dual Pro model, but I know different! From a source deep within Victorinox, I obtained documented evidence that proves the new tool is based on the Spirit! For those who don't believe me, check out the new versions here: http://www.sosakonline.com/images/stories/April_10/road_spirit.pdf

Have a Drink with Wenger!

A few weekends ago with my family went to a beach in northern Chile (Temblador Beach, La Serena), the place is very beautiful and peaceful. Driving on the beach I could see traces (Garbage) of previous visitors, then came to my mind, as could transform salt water (sea) in fresh water (drinkable) with the residues found.

Colored ALOX Models

If you've been on the forums lately you have seen some interesting new colors appearing in some members' collections- Green, orange and blue ALOX models have been showing up, and for some reason they seem to be mostly coming from South Africa!

Kershaw SAK?

 Ok, so it's not a Swiss Army Knife. That much should be obvious, but it should be of interest to any SAK collector because of it's SAK-like functions, and the fact that they are reasonably hard to find. I should know- I've been searching for one for years, and I finally found it on our own EDCSource of all places!

Wenger Mike Horn Model

Since it's initial release last year the new Wenger Mike Horn model has gotten a fair bit of attention- something Mike Horn himself has been doing for years! Mike's history is long and reads like a Clive Cussler novel- from paragliding to mountain climbing to cycling to sailing, Mike appears to have done it all.
