    Marc at has been a sponsor of SOSAKOnline and my other project, for years now and is always good to members.  This year is no different.

I am sure that many here will see the Following Pic and Story as Sacrilege...If I did not know the Man who I call "Dad" I probably would too...

    Shortly after last month's newsletter went out I got a reply from the top man at WengerNA (who by the way was also nice enough to send along the great anniversary wish you see at the side!) wanting to know if any of us would be interested in one of very few 2008 stamped Wenger Standard Issue (Soldat) models.  Naturally I jumped at the chance- in fact, so much that had there been any more enthusiasm, I might have landed myself in the hospital!

    It's hard to believe that yet another year has slipped by us, and that SOSAKOnline has been amusing SAK fans for four whole years!  It's pretty amazing when you think about it- four years, almost 500 SAK related articles, numerous contests, giveaways, and most importantly, stories, photos and thoughts from members all over the world.

When I first got this bad boy last week, I actually said "wow" aloud after opening the monstrous main blade. Bigger by far than the Swisstool  RS blade and about as wide as the alox blade.  Features a nice sliding blade lock on the scales as opposed to the trekker liner lock which it shares the same body style with.

Well this time, let us take a look at a few Wenger models.

Wenger it seems has been making Swiss Army Knives almost as long as Victorinox, the company that sort of started it all. Wenger has been in the business since the late eighteen hundreds.

This way, Victorinox can state that it was the Original Swiss Army Knife, and Wenger can proudly claim that it’s The Genuine Swiss Army Knife as both had to make their products to Swiss Army specifications.

I’ve always wondered why Wenger ranger was not selected as an option for the new soldier, but I suppose whatever behind the reasoning will never be known to us. But I’d like to compare the predecessors of the new soldier, the OHT, and potential candidate from Wenger, the Ranger 78

Ok, So my sister was snooping on my Amazon wishlist and she ordered me a New Soldier.  I have had it for a week and since we have been renovating my wife's old bedroom I decided to use it for everything I could.  Below is a list of how it was used and my opinions on it.

Right, so I got my Spirit X from Tim, and here's my review. I'm quite excited about this one because I had been obsessing about it for some time. Not the decision as to whether to buy one, but about how to get a pocket clip on it. I do not have the ability nor tools to perform the excellent mod done by J-Sews, so I had to think of something else.

This something else is the Clipdraw, which I first read about on this forum. This is not so much a review of the Spirit X as it is one of the Clipdraw on one.

First up, the Clipdraw. Here's what I bought
