    Yep, this is an original 1971 military issue Swiss army knife. Swiss cross logo with "W-K" horizontal in cross. In pretty food condition, I will cary it for a while, and then it goes in the vault. I need to buy a vault now! :p

    Thanks Bubba! Unfortunately, they did not made black ones in 1971, but I wanted a SAK as old as I am, so silver will have to do. :)

    Picture of the current black Alox collection
    [​IMG]
    from Left to right: Classic, Rambler mod, Minichamp mod, Cadet LE, Cadet, Pioneer, Farmer LE, Midshipman LR
    I asked the 2 modded ones for the shields to be reversed, but I should have specified it better, so the keyring was on the correct side - so that is that they matched the bigger ones. Well, it is what it is. I know it for next time now :)

    If you don't mind me asking, how much did the Rambler mod (and the Minichamp) end up costing you? I never asked Henry how much he charges.

    Hi Enki, Henri was great, for a single mod the price would have been pretty steep. But when I asked him for these, he raised some more interest online, so he could get combined shipping part prices that lowered the final price. (hence me ordering 2) . The final price he gave me (including shipping) undercut Swissbianco (excluding shipping) by a coupple of Euro. Still, not cheap, but worth the costs imho. I love the Alox Minichamp. It is the true essence of a Swiss Army Knife, in mini form. You have got to hold it to realise what a marvel it really is.

    The Minichamp got promoted to keyring accesoire, the Leatherman Style went to the drawer.

    Thanks my friend! The few black ones I am missing are as rare as hens teeth.
    Still, very happy with my current collection, it works just fine for me. :)
