Thanks

Hi craig,

excuse my ignorance, is a swisscard,

a card from someone swiss?

a credit card backed by a swiss bank account?

a card you can swiss with?

and what the hells a victorinox kit???????
is it?

somesort of medical bag?

a kit for building a victorinox? (glue not included)

a crissie prezzie multitool, that you don't know how you ever managed without it?

sorry i can't help you mate, it's proberbly all too high-tech for me, but i bet you can pick up a decent pair of scissors for a quid on't market.

I lost my excellent Victorinox Swiss army motorists' knife Chrissie Prezzie from 2001 sometime in the autumn, probably on the river bank.

Doubt you can get spares for the card, you maybe have to buy a new one.

LOL Crusty

Victorinox make knives and multi-tools - like Swiss Army Knives...brand name sorta thing. The SwissCard is a creditcard size piece which houses a small knife, scissors, tweezers, pen, two rules, protractor, pin, tooth pick and i'm sure there's something i've missed. You can pick them up for about 13 - there are spares available - I saw them on a website about a week ago but never bothered to bookmark it...and now i'm missing my favorite part :|

As for the Swiss Bank Account - if there is anyone on the forum with one and would like to buy me a new SwissCard please email me ;)

Thanks

I got mine from work as a free gift for a good safety record.

Always in my fishing box, and wouldn't be without it, but as to getting spares!!!!!

Just found this link for you,

Panic over - I found the scissors hiding on the other side of a partition in the tackle box :|

Would still be good to find out about some spare just in case - i've emailed a couple of suppliers of Victorinox kit - i'll post again with details if I get any feedback...

Thanks again

Hi

I'm sorry but although we can supply spare parts for the victorinox range,
the scissors are not available separately for this product.

Many thanks
