664. Outrider Damast LE2017

I’ve already mentioned several times, that in 2017 Victorinox discontinued slide-lock series (in 111-mm form-factor). So, it wasn’t a big surprise, when were announced, that as part of Damascus limited run, will be presented a new edition of very popular Outrider model (but with liner-lock for sure).
More interesting detail was the fact, that this version of Outrider will not include wood-saw and corkscrew.
Let’s review some pictures?
P.S. I’m not absolutely sure about materials of scales. On official press-release it was specified like:
…Epicurean scales with sequential numbering. These are manufactured using environmentally-friendly wood fiber material, that accentuate the elegant design.

475. RangerWood Damast LE2015

Probably all readers of my blog knows that every year (from 2010 if I’m not mistaken), company Victorinox released one knife as Limited edition of the current year. The major sign of such LE model — damasteel main blade.

In 2015 company Victorinox released as Limited edition ex-Wenger model RangerWood 55. In this edition knife comes without saw, but, as was mentioned, with damasteel main blade and etched serial number on the liner behind the corkscrew.

Maybe you remember that previously I’ve declared decision to collect only real Victorinox knives (no ex-Wenger models in other words). For this time it was a hard decision, but I hadn’t other choice! 🙂

So, just enjoy with photo of another masterpiece from Victorinox..

424. Spartan Damast LE 2014

In 2014 year company Victorinox released as Limited Edition knife probably the most known model — Spartan. This knife as all previous LE has damasteel blade and limited to the 5’000 peaces worldwide.
 
­In comparison with previous year’s knife (Explorer 2013 LE) this one has much more accuracy wooden scales (I understand that it sounds very strange, but yes, I can confirm again — 2013 LE model had ugly polished scales).
 
It’s hard to say anything new about so famous knife as Spartan, so I prefer to post a lot of pictures instead 🙂
