Well, it's been about a year since Def asked me to write up an article about my trip to the Bowron Lakes. Since then I've actually done another trip there, so instead of being redundant, I guess I'll talk about my new trip.

If there was a multitool of the year award (something I have strongly considered doing on then the first year the Spirit was released, it would have taken the top prize. It was perhaps the first multitool that was a “must have” for virtually everyone, and generated more interest and excitement than any other tool had at that point, and perhaps has since.

    Occasionally I get asked what the Secret Order Of Swiss Army Knives name is all about, and while I usually don't like to go too much into detail, as this is a Secret Order, I will take a moment to show you, our devoted members an example of just how far reaching The Order really is.

A couple of months ago, a SOSAK member sent me an email asking about a Wenger model that included Victorinox style toothpick and tweezers, which up until that moment, was something I knew nothing about. I started looking into this a bit more, and before I knew it, the question had shown up on the forum as well.

    By now any SAK enthusiast should be well aware of the fantastic warranty service both companies offer, but what if someone you know only has one SAK and needs to get it serviced, and can't live without it?

A few months ago, with some help from a couple of SOSAK members and our own Felinevet I managed to get a hold of an excellent piece to act as a centerpiece for my collection- a sealed display case featuring six different discontinued 108mm Safari series SAKs and a leather 108mm pouch.

That's right, thanks to a donation from a very generous member, we are giving away a brand new in box 108mm, discontinued, highly sought after Victorinox Mauser!
