    So, here's the story: I was doing some government work down in a small town in Alabama a few years ago and one of the people I was working with mentioned that there was a knife store nearby.

    At lunch time I went to the store. It had a pretty limited selection of knives. As I was leaving I noticed a small Victorinox display. I saw this knife:

    The price on it, $29.99, was really, really reasonable. (I had seen Internet prices of $50 to $75 for one of these at the same time.)

    I enquired what the deal was and the owner told me it was "new old stock" that had been laying around unsold.

    I asked if he had any more. He thought there was at least one more in back. He went off to look. A few minutes later he comes back with three more. Naturally, I bought all of them. Since I was taking these "off his hands" he even gave me a 20% discount. So for about $100 I got all of these:

    Yep, there are still deals to be found 'out there.'

    Forgot to post a pic of the little leather pouch that came with each knife:

    Swiss Bianco. They have apocalypse green and Skyblue which is an incredible color. They kind of missed the boat by not having the kelly green.

    The s. africans I was getting for 22 US a piece direct thru a friend but he has gone MIA.

    Good luck in your search.

    My deliveries get sent to the UK and I wait until someone brings them to Nigeria for me, and these four just turned up in a suitcase. The 2015 Alox Pioneer Special and three from Swiss Bianco.
