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” 🙂

529. Soldier 2008 (Fu Br 41)

This version of Victorinox Soldier 2008 (militarian version of civilian Trailmaster) I bought accidentally here, in Ukraine. I was surprised with a logo, printed on top scale – something which was called a “Fu Br 41“.
After short (very short) investigation I founf information about this Swiss army unit – Command Support Brigade 41.
In Deutch it sounds more dramatically (I’m not sure that can pronounce it ;):
Die Führungsunterstützungsbrigade 41 
Besides that, it’s a regular SAK 2008 (year of production is 2011).

503. Forester OH

The Victorinox Forester is a 3-layer 111-mm which was produced in several variations – with One-hand and regular blades, with standart neylon and Dual-Grip scales. Current instance is a Ohe-hand variation with serrated blade and usual black scales.

Interesting  fact: version with One-hand regular (non-serrated) blade was produced during a very short period and for now it’s a highly collectible item!
