Surprised that these are on-sale nowadays, the blades must be longer than 5 cm.

Never tell J-Plod that you are carrying one....

pawatan: good point, but if the blade is under 5cm it is okay.

63,000 yen? In this economy? Who are they kidding? Certainly not soldiers.

I got mine during my time in the army. No thanks. It seems at that time they didn't understand what the main useful tool is. Yap... a cork screw!

It will take the Chinese a week to knock out a copy that will be cut just as well and sell for 630 yen.

It will smell like pesticide and fall apart in 2 months...

what's this thing now about all these old things coming out again? First it was a Jet Airliner circa 1982, now it's a pocket knife from 1891. I gotta look around in my closet see if I find something good.

For 63,000 yen it better come with fork, knife, spoon, a full manicure set and a sexy Swiss soldier!

I use to sell a few of them in our sportshop. So have two more or less normal ones, but the salesman gave me the gift of a MINI one if you can imagine. Guess I will have to dig that up & maker sure all is well.
