    I really do like the way the National Park SAKs look.

    Just ordered this beauty and I'm so darn excited - I love it. I think white SAKs are stunning.

    Me too. It's my second. I want to collect each of the parks that I've visited.

    No. I don't know if they are available there but I got mine from Central Valley Wholesale Goods on eBay. They can also be had from Smoky Mountain Knife Works. I'll be at the GSMNP in 2 weeks and see if they carry them at the visitors centers.

    I don't know if the parks sell them, but I got mine from REI online, which has 7 different ones.

    Regarding the park models, I don't own any of those, but Central Valley Wholesale is my go-to Victorinox dealer on fleabay whenever possible. I was just recently checking their fleabay store and noticed they have several of the various park designs available, so anyone interested in those should check Central Valley Wholesale.

    Short story is that you can't. Long story is that the scales were made by Andrzej Woronowski of ALM Knives who no longer makes them or offers them for sale. This is a modified Compact with the backside corkscrew replaced with a phillips and anodized scales by Andrzej. I wish there was a way to access these scales as I would like to have a few more but, unfortunately, there is no one I am aware of that sells the scales only. Robert Lessard, sakmodder on IG, makes a complete custom SAK with similar scales and Swiss Bianco offers some custom Ti and Cu scales but with a different look. Someone here may have some different options for scales that I am not aware of, if so I would like to find some more. I do have a set of 84mm scales, identical to the set on this knife, that I haven't used yet. But I'm saving them until I figure out what knife I want to mod. Apologies for the rambling story...

    Okay - I hate it when things are left hanging so I put together a large picture of all the special US Parks limited edition SAKs. So, click the link below for the huge picture...

    US Parks SAKs

    And here is a link to Central Valley Wholesale's page showing the limited edition SAKs with links to sales for each one...

    Hope that helps, guys!

    What, no Everglades knife? I feel so cheated and unloved.
    Thanks for the pic though. The ones they do make are beautiful.
