This thread is for comments on the article "Outdoor Retailer: Building a Victorinox Swiss Army Knife -- by hand "

Anyone with twenty-five dollars to spare can go out and buy a Victorinox Spartan multi-tool. But, making your own by hand? That's priceless. I was lucky enough to make my own Spartan, thanks to Victorinox's Brian Ordway who patiently walked me through the process at Outdoor Retailer.

I love the photo of you where you are about to give the knife a good whack with the hammer, great facial expression.

Yes that was nice. When looking at the contempt smile on Bills face I'd say he had a good time too. If it were not for the grey beard, he somewhat resembles my grandson of 6 when he assembles space lego. Boys will be boys, no matter the age.

But victorynox makes good knives! I have my pocket knife on me always. And the only time in airplanes where I must be without it, I feel naked.

Nex week my holidays starts, and I'll be going to the "homeland" of victorynox for five long weeks.

Re: Outdoor Retailer: Building a Victorinox Swiss Army Knife -- by hand

Thanks everybody! It was really cool. I was super excited, and yes, quite intent on the process. I didn't want to screw up my big chance to make a knife and there were a bunch of people watching too.

I've already used my knife a few times. It works!
