    I wanted to share this over here as it's my current EDC, and a wonderfully innovative piece of work. It was made my Syph007 @ MTO and in order to make it, he has been getting custom parts machined :)

    So, from this angle it's mostly a normal, perhaps vintage looking SAK. Brass liner was however made by him, as was one of the backsprings. And you can see it's held together with torx bolts which means it can be easily stripped down too.

    The scales are also custom made - nice bit of deep red hard anodising. He has done a few lovely colours, but I thought red went nicely with the brass option.

    Now you're getting a glimpse of the internal goodness.... scissors :)
    This is why the custom backspring was made, so it fits seamlessly with existing Victorinox parts.

    And the tools? My ideal choice for a pocket cutting tool. No drivers and fancy stuff, just the most useful things to me without any extra weight or bulk. I have since put a brass pocket clip on it so it's sitting quietly, elegantly, always ready for action.

    I LOVE this knife! :D

    Is it hard to get one of these made(waiting list, cannot contact he seller, etc.)? Also, is it very expensive to get one made? If you don't mind me asking?

    I had a nice convesation with Syph007 here on the forum. He is a pleasure to do deal with. He only used about a week to make mine. but that was some month ago. The price was a bit high ($100+) but sooo worth it. :)

    No probs, and thank you :)

    Yes it can get expensive, but I actually worked out a deal involving SAK trades with him. Just get in touch and ask him, as Vesp said, he's a real pleasure to deal with.

    Beautiful & very tempting,
    Any idea how durable the finish is on the alox , factory finish on the coloured alox range is terrible.

    From what I have heard and seen on my own. The finish on these are much much better than the original!

    I agree, the custom hard anodised ones seem to be tougher. I intend to abuse this a lot, so we'll see how it's holding up in a few months! :D

    I agree. They could replace that little file with scissors, then it would be great! :)

    Very,Very, Nice!! Sometimes it's well worth the price to get the custom item you want.
