Ofcourse I had to visit the @victorinoxswissarmy factory and the factory outlet store! Especially when I found out it was only a ten minute drive from where we stayed during our trip to #switzerland. The outlet store had every product imaginable. I actually spent most time stocking up on accessories for my #sak knives. The factory didn't seem to offer tours. I actually liked the #victorinox museum shop in the nearby town of Brunnen better than the outlet store. Why? I'll show you tomorrow!
Ready to drill the handle and Heat treat! The last of the forge scale will get removed post heat treat. This blade has a distal taper from .25"at the ricasso to .11" at the tip! The tang is tapered to .156". The balence is about 1.5" ahead of the ricasso!
