You see much written about "standard" size 91mm and 84mm SAKs and the diminutive 58mm SAKs, but what about that "odd ball" 74mm series?

In my opinion, this is a highly overlooked and under rated option for your EDC "arsenal".

My first knife was a Swiss Army Knife that my grandfather gave to me.  Although the knife was lost long ago, I will never forget my astonishment as I opened and closed each tool, wondering about the function and marveling at the design.  Many of you probably had similar childhood experiences.

If you're not real familiar with me, I'm not surprised.  I'm a relative new comer to SOSAKonline.  My name is Chris and I go by the handle of RedRamage on the KnifeForum boards.  I've been a member for a while, but only recently really started posting in the forums and actively reading the site.  However, I have been collecting for a while and I've built up a large collection including over 70 knifes and a few books.  I tend to specialize in the 58mm size.  I have a VERY large collection of 58mm including 28 different colors of classics and signatures.

Please take the time to read this- it is very important.

This month, instead of a contest we are going to raffle off something truly unique in support of SOSAKOnline. 

The Raffle has been completed!  Congratulations to SwissNut, who won this beautiful set!
