Swiss Bianco Newsletter
Issue 2007, vol. 3
This issue of the newsletter comes out as I am in the second week of my stay
in the USA, and I have some good news I would like to share with you.
After a bit of a delay, I am now ready to start the preorder of
the long awaited SG PE OHT!
While in Switzerland, I could not do it
for legal reasons, but now that I am in the USA, I am doing
the best I can to make this happen.
As I am sure all of you know, the standard Victorinox One-Hand
Trekker has partially serrated blade, a Phillips, and black scales.
This special version, which was featured in Tactical Knife magazine,
has the stayglow scales (not available anywhere else, except
on a Rescue Tool), a factory plain edge, and a corkscrew (with mini-screwdriver, of course!).
The pictures say more then I can describe, and many of you have seen them
and seemed to love this SAK.
In order to prevent problems with shipping, as well as to add value,
all the of these SAKs will have a small laser engraving with a
number (for quick identification by us and the police, if needed).
First 100 pieces will have a price of $65,
and the higher numbers the price of $55. You can request
specific numbers , say #10, #55, etc., and I will do my best
to accommodate these requests. Please don't ask me for #001
or #007, they are taken! LOL
SG PE OHT
These prices do not include shipping, please e-mail me for the final
price for your destination. Delivery will happen as soon as Mr. Elsener has them
shipped directly to the USA (these knives are banned in Switzerland).
Splash Alox OHT
I am working with my GA CNC miller on the alox scaled upgrade
version of the PE OHT with red anodized waffle pattern
alox scales, and 2 position clip.
Hopefully, this SAK will also
have the pen, pin, tweezers, and toothpick too!
The red veined custom handmade prototype in the picture does not have all the
correct features, but it gives you some idea of what it will look like.
I hope we
get 20 pieces together, and I will keep you informed about the
price as soon as I can.
From the previous special runs, I still have some items available for purchase, including
a handful of Alox Lumberjacks, some Black Yeomen, and some custom made 91mm
Lumberjack Plus with red and black eco scales. I also have some wartime SAKs for sale.
For more details on these please check my forums on KnifeForums and
on Messerforum (in German), look at the
+B Newsletter #2,
or send me an email to (swissbianconews at hotmail.com).
After the first successful run of Splash Alox Farmers, I am going to work more with splash technique in 2008.
I will do different sizes of SAKs, a Swiss made pen, and other items, like
alox Swiss cardholder, cigar cutter, flashlight, etc. I will be able to accept custom orders
for various items splashed the same way as a set.
There are also plans for a special Swiss run of gold anodized pioneer alox SAKs,
old cross shield, brand new in a box. I will work on those when I am back
in Switzerland at the end of this year, and I will update you on that.
In an week or so, the run of my NeckAngel knives should be
laser engraved and ready to be shipped out. I also still working on the
SwissKeyTool and many other things.
My website is in the process of being updated, and I will be very
happy when this is finally done.
The US shop is coming together and the new paperwork for the sponsored green
card is moving along.
Please stay tuned, there is more great things to come!
