    Well the title says it, for my birthday in 1976 i was given my first SAK i have no idea what model it was, as close as i recall it was four wide, with the usual large and small knife blades, screw driver/cap lifter, can opener, then as best i can recall it had an inline phillips screwdriver,saw blade,magnifying glass and scissors and corkscrew and reamer on the back, possibly pliers but i could be mixing my memories up with the SAK i bought to replace the original after i lost it. The closest i can find is the Explorer now , the replacement i bought was i think a Champion but i think it was only five wide as i have one of the seven wide and i find it just to heavy to wear on my belt. Can someone shed some light on the production line for the mid seventies.

    Thanks in advance OMR.

    I am pretty sure the SAK that i had was a Champion, now re released as the Champion Plus, but apparently unobtainable in the UK.

    Managed to find one on the bay, hooray..This is a stock picture but my new Champion Plus is just like it.
