I have one that I bought in Zermatt, Switzerland. Used it through dozens of survivex's in the army, carried in on 3 continents, through 2 conflicts and through 20 some-odd years camping in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I own several knives, fixed-blade and folders (about a dozen Victorinox's), and if I could only grab one to take with me into the bush it would be my venerable old Ranger. So take it from another venerable old Ranger - this knife will be the best $30 (or so) bucks you will ever spend. It will be for you what it has been for me - a trustworthy companion down through the years that only gets better with age.
