541. Pioneer 2223 – VSAKCS 2014

In 2014 VSAKCS released a new limited model – Pioneer 2223 (or Sea Pioneer). It’s a definetely rare model which was produced only several times with special-runs.

539. Doctor’s Knife – VSAKCS 2012

In the 2012 VSAKCS released probably the most unusual knife that ever they released – the Doctor’s knife. This knife contains very specific tool – medical spatula. I cannot remember other regular Victorinox knives which also has this tool, except SwissChamp XL-series. If I’m not mistaken, also one unique knife with spatula, based on Climber model was produced specially for Hewlett-Packard company.  Who knows more models?

538. Workman – VSAKCS 2011

This is another limited model from VSAKCSWorkman and (in comparision with previous one) – it’s an absolutely unique. It looks like enlarged version of Apprentice (84 mm) model. Definetely rare and valued knife!

536. Compact – VSAKCS 2009

The next model in my collection from Victorinox Swiss Army Knife Collectors Society (VSAKCS) is a Compact, anniversary knife for 2009 (hope that my attentive readers understood that I’m looking for models from 2007 to 2009 years 🙂

This time VSAKCS used a regular model, but with unusual wooden scales. Looks beautifull, isn’t it?

535. Astronaut (Grand Prix) – VSAKCS-2006

At the beginning of this post I would like to say “Thank you!” to one good fellow, without his help probably I never didn’t find this knife (and several others by the way).

Jason, thanks! 🙂

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away when I just started my journey to the wonderfull world of SAKs, I’ve heard a legend about some group of collectors (maybe better call them “Secret orden”?) – Victorinox Swiss Army Knife Collectors Society, or VSAKCS. Every year, starting from 2000, this society released a new anniversary knife specially for members of this group. Sometimes these knives were a regular models, but sometimes… not. Every knife was produced in small quanities and has a special emblem on scales.

Very long introduction, sorry. Lets look at “Astronaut” model which was released for VSAKCS in 2006. First thing, that we can see – it’s not an original “Astronaut” model. Technically – it’s a Grand Prix model, with inlaid logo of Shuttle on its scales.

P.S. Some announce: several future posts will be related to the knives from the same series – VSAKCS!
