    Once again the photo host I was using quit. This time without notice or trace. I'll attempt to repopulate the missing pictures as I can. I had to do that previously when Tinypic shut down. The last two pictures I used imgur.

    The latest, a 2003 short issue of the 152UH Wolverine in the clampack. Originally the knife listed in the catalogs from 1994 - 1998, five years. It was revived briefly in 2003 for sale exclusively through a big box store per Clemente.

    The two knife gift set, SGS-1, was offered in a clampack version from 1987 thru 1997. I've not seen too many of these still in the package. The retail list price was the same as the SGS-1 gift set in the fancier box, though I suspect that the merchants did not make the full suggested markup. Listed as "new!" in 1987, retail was $40.95. Last listed in 1997, the set in the clampack listed for $58.90. In today's dollars, adjusted for inflation, that would be $94.09.

    This is the standard SGS-1 gift set in the flocked tray in woodgrained sliptop box.

    Snatch! I managed to get it. As much as I dislike clam packs. Waiting for another SGS-1 box to arrive and then I will have them all I think. Except for the SFO's anyway. There should be five production variants if I am correct. But a sixth is possible.

    This is the first SGS-1 variant from 1987-88. I haven't added the knives back to it yet but the tray was specifically formed to hold the SAS-17 pouch sheath which was discontinued after 1988. IMHO this one is uncommon to find today.

    I'm glad you did. I dislike clam-packs too and don't have a single one in my collection. I like handling my knives too much. At the same time, the knives are forever sealed in a time-capsule of sorts. Pros and cons. I'm guessing that leaving them in the dark is best if you don't want the plastic to yellow.

    Yes, the clampacks are notorious for yellowing and becoming brittle from age. Realistically though, they were only intended to last from factory to store point of sale display and then be opened and tossed by the customers. They never were intended to be archived and last decades. Like slabbed collector coins. Some of the bonus clampacks were interesting too. Compass, sharpening stone, playing cards, knife care kits were all offered in one pattern or another.
