    Don't feel bad bro. Others have made more than 1 claim and offering. Don't let it pass. I keep kicking myself over missing the ZT0566 which is basically my grail knife (any model of the 05XX line) :(

    I will put up a new PIF.

    A Wenger Soldier/Stanard Issue.

    Produced in the early 1970's, this Wenger Soldier model sports the old style cross on its scales, plus it has the Waffen Kontrol stamp. The finish on the scales is in excellent shape; so, this would make a great display knife. The blade had some very minor tip damage and has been dressed accordingly. When the knife is closed, you can't tell unless you know what you are looking for. This one has been in my permanent SAK collection but I plan to replace it with an earlier model.

    Free shipping within the US and Canada.

    Claim it! Even though it's not your step-fathers knife, it will remind you of him. Carry it in his honor!

    Considering the lock kinda not working on it, would you take a Böker Plus Griploc as an equal PiF? Box and all, mirror polished edge. I just don't carry it.

    PM sent to figure out PIF value of the combo (this is not a claim so others can still jump on it).

    I've never seen a griplock before, that's a pretty nifty looking mechanism from the boker vid I just watched. I think that's one where I love that they did something new and the engineering of it's cool but not my tastes in aesthetics.

    I would think the value's would be similar if the griplock is in good condition like the excelibur, except for the questionable lock. Just one opinion, based on new values from BHQ.

    I based the value on new value ($100 and $80), both being used (equal subtraction), and the faulty lock taking off around a quarter of the value.

    The Griploc is super cool though. If it was made with a better steel, I'd be carrying it all the time, I'm just too much of a steel snob to get over AUS-8 any more. I won't touch anything below 440C any more.

    Hey @Minirehak212 how's the action on that Ruike P801? It keeps calling out to me :rolleyes:

    @FOG2 that's a sweet offering IMO and @cchu518 is an awesome dude. I'm actually excited to see what magic he can work ;)

    The action isn't too bad actually. It's a little sensitive to lockbar pressure, and the flipper tab is a strange shape for me, but it is smooth. The ball bearings do help
