The old cross is very attractive to me, too. Here is a Woodsman that I carry a lot.
On the trail it's a great addition to a fixed blade and lightweight to carry. I have a second one in very good condition in the drawer as a backup - just in case smile

I have a Wenger with a small light next to the tweezers. Light still works after 10 years.

I prefer the Alox versions but that's definitely a handy addition, Eric!

This is my Nylon handled SAK that is actually a GAK* laugh

This one had been issued for the Netherland's Army and had obviously seen some use. That makes it easy for me to throw it in the bag wherever I go smile
A very versatile tool.

Nice - another GAK!
And the silver Alox in the bottom right corner seems to carry the "WK" stamp wink

The above three blade Hunter GAK/Safari is odd, I have others in the line (all others, actually), but no room in shot. Below are a few others of the discontinued GAK/Safari 108mm line. Top to bottom would be Pathfinder (favorite carry knife), Swiss Shark, canted Solo, and Trooper (red GAK in all respects except color).

The above silver alox is first year of no acceptance stamp on small scale blank and is a Wenger from '87....collectors are in disagreement over whether that signifies an issue knife using up last of old scale stock that year only, or if an otherwise military marked knife destined for civilian market. Wenger now dead and absorbed by Victorinox and knives dropped, and doubt anyone still around from Wenger who could point towards a definitive document either way. So, a mystery for all time, as far as I am concerned, no matter expert opinion either way, it only opinion.

The above all black SAK is oddball, note it uses same old "blankless" back scale as the military knives and early Pioneers, several hundred were made up when Victorinox closed out/liquidated all the old style scales circa 2011, so there will never be any such critter again, not unless they retool.

The above 1:100 all red faux old original SAK is from Swiss Bianco, but Victorinox is slamming the door on distributors ordering customs not easily discernable from Victorinox own limited runs, and is now requiring scale markings on top of blade markings for custom orders. Not really fair, as the custom orders mainly just replicated knives such as the original SAK which Victorinox had dropped.

Below is a trick alox Solo knife from Swiss distributor HR, which I use on kids and adults, leading in with, "my eyes are not what they used to be, this knife looks kinda purple to me.....are you sure it is green?....look again."

The below powder blue another Swiss Bianco faux SAK 1:100 limited runs.
