 Issue 2010, vol. 1 

We would like to wish you a Happy New Year, and we celebrate with some old stock brand new SAKs I found in Switzerland, hiding on dusty shelves.

The common theme for these SAK is horn (from the cows of Swiss Alps), stainless steel (some gold-plated), and alox.

Since most of these pieces have long been out of production I cannot guarantee their availability, so, if you are interested in a specific model, please email me with the "expression of interest", and I will reply with what I can deliver.

For additional photos of the items featured in this newsletter and more, please visit Swissbianco Photobucket Old Stock SAKs Album and Swissbianco Photobucket SAK Album.
Alox Technician
93mm Alox Technicians The 93mm Alox Technician, model 0.8100.27, is a 2-layer SAK with main blade, awl, cap lifter with large screwdriver with wirestripper, and a thin long flat screwdriver. The scales are silver alox with old-style plain cross.

Compared to the Electrician model, these were produced in much more limited numbers, and are very hard to find.

Price is $80 each.
84mm Horn Scaled Golfer with Long Nail File
This 84mm Golfer packs a lot of utility and style into a 2-layer SAK. It includes main blade, combo tool with wire stripper, scissors, grooved corkscrew, long nail file, toothpick, and metal-head tweezers.

Natural horn scales make each piece truly unique. Discontinued for quite some time, these are a must have piece for any SAK collection.

The price is $132 each.

Upcoming Events
I am continuing my preparations for the SHOT show (www.shotshow.org). This will be the first time Swissbianco exhibits at the world's largest dealer-only knife expo. This year the show is held in Las Vegas, Nevada. We will be located at Booth L104, if you attend, please stop by. Also, if there is enough interest, we will make a gathering outside the shot show on one of the evenings.

For 2010, we will work on offering more of the exciting SAK models, including another run of the Firesteel Farmer and Alox Bushcrafter. We will also focus on growing the company and offering more Swissbianco-designed products.

Thanks, and Happy New Year!
