I know, I know. Is there some support group for us, like knives anonymous or something similar. Its hard for me to discover a knife without some sort of appeal. I find I can justify the purchase of virtually any blade. This has got to stop. Oh, wait. I just recalled a Schatt & Morgan that is a must have. Catch y'all later.

I sent SAKs to my nephews. Here, their father introduces them to the knives.

Thanks guys. When I send knives to youngsters [next will be Scouts then Barlows] I include some simple information about the knives with a brief quiz like this one for the SAKs.

REVIEW: Whenever finished using a knife that you won't use again for a few days. Always wipe your prints off the blades with a very, very __________ cloth.

SAK means ________ ________ _______.

The handles on pocket knives are often called _________.

Two connected companies make the same SAKs. These are Victorinox (named after the founder's wife Victoria) and _______.

Here is a difficult question. What does ALOX tell us about the SAK scales?

[Ans: soft/Swiss Army Knives/scales/Wenger/they are aluminum (or aluminum alloy).]

Just bought this Victorinox Anniversary Soldier Knife of 2005 and at the blade, has laser etched the signature of the current CEO of Victorinox, Charles Elsener. Comes with a 192 page Collectors Companion Book. Still in unopened box.

I really like the Alox knives. Flipped the picture right side up so we don't get a kink in our neck while admiring it. :)

Camillus, a great acquisition. ::tu::

And thanks to those who commented on my nephew's photos. I do think we should do whatever we reasonably can to foster the hobby with future generations. With younger children the first thing I do with them and their parents is explain basic safety. Then I explain what to do when they cut a finger. When, not if. (Often by the 2nd day when closing the blade.) So when it happens there is no panic from child or parent.

A friend's 8 year old, whom I had no connection with, cut his hand on his father's knife. Clearly his father's fault: no education, no supervision. So now the boy's parents will hardly let him touch anything more than a butter knife. Sad.

So true. Safety first and explaining what to do when an accident happens is a good idea. My earliest recollections with knives was when I was about 6 or 7 and my Dad let me close a blade on his knife much to my mother's disapproval and I surely did cut my finger. Happily that did not end my knife days.

And getting that first cut is wonderfully educational. :wink: I always get kids started with a SAK because it is less provocative especially to mothers who are usually a bit worried. I understand; that is their job. But the SAKS enter were other knives can create an issue.
