    I'm searching for a Swiss army classic sd with emergency blade. I'm having trouble finding one. My question is, is this knife really tough to find or is it just me? Also, when I do find one, what is a fair price that I should pay? I wouldn't want to over pay.
    Thank you,
    God bless

    I don't think I have ever seen a classic with anything else than the standard pen blade. Have they ever been available with anything else?

    Yes. SAKwiki has some pictures and talks about it. That it was the rarest version of the classic.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "emergency blade"

    On that note, I wouldn't trust/rely upon a blade so small, flimsy, in an 'emergency'... Just my 2 coppers

    I wouldn't use the knife. I am just looking for one because I would like to own the variation of this knife just for collecting purposes.

    Also referred to as the letter opener. It kind of reminds me of a sheeps foot blade on a case knife, just much smaller.

    Oh...I thought the small wharncliff was called a small wharncliff. Never heard it referred to as an"emergency blade". I was envisioning a seat belt cutting or pull blade of some sorts.
