594. Forester

The Victorinox Forester isn’t rare model. Even One Hand Forester model. But One Hand Forester with plain blade – it’s a rare bird. I even say – it’s an “extemely rare bird”. But it’s true for the past, because in 2017 Victorinox re-launched variation One Hand Forester with plain blade (and Dual-Grip scales).
So, I will call my Forester as “rare bird from the past” 🙂
