+B logo Swiss Bianco Newsletter
 Issue 2011, vol. 1 

This is the busiest time of the year for me - first Christmas, then SHOT show, and now IWA. We had a blast with the 4sevens flashlight people at the SHOT show and of course with the Gatco Timberline knives ones. This newsletter pieces will be shipped from the USA, and the next newsletter will be coming from Europe.

SwissBianco Design Timberine NeckAngel and SKT
Timberline +B Design NeckAngel Ultralight

NeckAngel laminated blade

Timberline +B Design SwissKeyTool
Timberline NeckAngel, a laminated ultralight fixed blade design from Swissbianco, is now in production. With the sheath the weight is only about 80gm.

The stainless steel/G10 blade/handle construction is laminated together, allowing for a light knife in a usable size, with good blade and handle length.

For the video showing the features of NeckAngel click here.

Timberline SwissKeyTool, a small pocket tool based on the SAK bottle opener design with added features, has also been released.

In addition to the bottle opener/flat screwdriver/prybar, it includes cord cutter, pointed blade and O2 wrench in a compact package, easy to carry on your keychain or as a neck knife. It comes with a nice knotted keyfob designed by Stormdrane (a link to his great work is on my website).

The price for NeckAngel is $40 each and the SKT is $18 each.
Victorinox Alox Minichamp and Rambler
The alox version of Victorinox Rambler, which was a special Swissbianco run last year, proved very popular with SAK users. Thinner than cellidor Classic and sporting all the tools from the popular Rambler model, the alox Rambler is an excellent tool to have on the keychain.

This year we made the next step and, with the help and support from Ibach, we got alox version of Victorinox Minichamp. This 58mm alox SAK features all of the available tools, while being thinner than cellidor Rambler model. At the moment, only 25 pieces are in existence (5 prototype and 20 first +B-exclusive special run).

For the video showing off alox Minichamp features, please click here.

We also have another run of Victorinox silver and red alox Ramblers in stock.

The price for alox Minichamp is $55 each, silver alox Rambler is $35 each, and red alox Rambler is $37 each.

Victorinox "Sphinx" OHT
Gardeners Victorinox "Sphinx" OHT is the latest gun-related SAK from Switzerland. This 111mm One-Hand Trekker model with black scales features the "Sphinx" print on the back scale. Armin Landolt, the owner of the finest Swiss gun manufacturer there is, Sphinx Arms, introduced me to this exciting SAK at the SHOT show.

For the video of this cool SAK click here.

The price is $60 each.
Victorinox 2011 Alox Soldier
Continuing the 1961 Soldier SAK tradition, Victorinox will release a brand new model, featuring silver alox scales with the Victorinox shield logo.

It is so new we had to make a simulated picture. The video and pictures will follow when I get the first production pieces.

The price is $30 each.
Swissbianco QDS for Ruger 10/22
Gardeners Swissbianco QDS (Quick Disassembly Screw) for the Ruger 10/22 is a new Swissbianco gun-related product. It is Swiss-designed to allow users of the famous Ruger 10/22 rifle in its many variations without barrel band, to have it disassembled without screwdriver, since the knurled screw can be turned by hand!

Swiss quality black carbon steel screw. For the video showing how it works click here.

The price is $11 each.
Ongoing and Upcoming Projects and Events
I am preparing for another show and we just got the stainless damascus steel from Damasteel. These blank will be cut into 111mm one-hand opening SAK blades, so more damascus SAK will be available soon in different styles. In the next newsletter, silver alox Firesteel Farmer and Bushcrafter will be featured, along with others.

Best regards.
