I’m Reinier. I have been a Swiss Army Knives enthusiast since I was 12 or something. I had a Victorinox catalog from 1993 (give or take a year) that I used to read every day. It was in German, so the first German words I learned where “Klinge”, “Korkenzieher”, “Drahtabisolierer” and “Stech-Bohr-Nähahle” :)
My parents promised they would give me my first Victorinox knife on my 18th birthday. But a couple of years before that, I bought a black Huntsman and boy, was I proud of it!
I lost it a while later and it was replaced by a translucent blue (sapphire) Huntsman. Unfortunately, that was lost as well.
Some time later I started collecting Swiss Army knives. I have a couple of Wengers, but I really am a Victorinox fan.
Have a look around on this site. Hope you’ll enjoy it :D
