The one I have and like best is my Wenger Field Dresser...
It has one more blade than yours Greg and that is the blade I like most.
The blade up at 45 degrees on the right has a blunt and rounded tip. It is nice to be able to slide this one under the skin of a deer and push up and away from yourself. Cuts that old hide nicely without cutting into the meat!

They buried William in the old church yard, And Barbara there anigh him,
And out of his grave grew a red, red rose, And out of hers, a briar.....
They lapped and tied in a true love's knot. The rose ran around the briar.

Here is a new pick up from the gun show over the weekend. Victorinox cigar cutter. It was in a junk pile of knives, its is new and still had the plastic protector on handles, but no box.

Looks as good or better in hand. Let us know if you pick one up.

I got that Serrated Spartan from REI recently when they had a half off sale on them. I like the serrated blade of the bigger knives, but A: I'm not a fan of the ergonomics the one-handed blade has--the Spyderco-style opener makes everything else painful to use; and secondly, it's a bit big. To get the serrated blade in non-OH 111mm, it's only with the Picknicker (kinda like a bigger version of the Serrated Spartan; on a 111mm frame) and Helmsman. The Serrated Spartan puts that cutting power into a standard-sized SAK. I don't care what you cut--the serrated blade makes really quick work out of it. From rope, to vines/brush, to hose; it goes through it like nothing.

WIsh more SAKs had those nylon scales. They're standard on 111mm and available on all models. Withholding special runs; nylon on 84mm/91mm models is limited to the Economy/II models which only consist of the Huntsman, Camper, Climber, Spartan, Sportsman, and in some markets, the Tinker. Cellidor is close to cellulose acetate (but formulated to not shrink/outgas); which most cutlery makers moved away from the 1960s. It's brittle (with heavy, regular use; I'm lucky if a set lasts me a year); and very sensitive to certain solvents. On the farm, I'm always working around diesel and gasoline. Diesel will eat Cellidor, but won't hurt Delrin, Zytel, and nylon at all. Get as little as diesel residue off my hands on Cellidor, and it will leave a pitted spot on the plastic.

I received this Alox Victorinox Soldier - 1961 Design, from Bfeldman in the 2020 POS exchange. A POS it is not. A keeper it is.

I'll say it's a keeper!
Tisk, tisk...... one man's POS is another man's treasure!
(Isn't that how the old saying goes?)

Nice one Jerry!
