Victorinox BW by Mike, on Flickr

I have had this 'Swiss Army' knife since I was in the second grade (I'll turn 50 this year). The knife was a gift from my parents. Dad had one just like it, and I always wanted one. I cut myself whittling sticks at a campfire, and carried it pretty much everywhere with me except school. When I got into college it was in my toolbox for work, and I eventually lost it, only for it to be found again going through some things at my parent's place after dad passed away. It journeyed with me on our move to Switzerland, which is funny, and fitting I guess.

This is an attempt at an HDR focus stack. Still learning about macro, but enjoying capturing these little things around me - fingerprints, dirt, and all. Stacked in Helicon after merging the brackets in Lr. Was trying to make sure to capture the detail in the blade, which was getting blown out.

Great composition Mike!
This shows the "wear and tear" better than the color. Both are most excellent!

Nice work with the focus stack and processing. Classic knife with lots of character and memories for you. I carried one for many years, but found I wasn't using it much so switched to a smaller multi-tool for hiking/skiing.

Thanks Dan, agreed, they are different. I really got enamored with trying to capture that iconic red color in the other version.

Thanks Jim. I havenít carried one of these around in awhile - I need a pocket clip on my knife so these sadly are out. I also used multi-tools for a long while - but keep those with my various kits now - one stays in the paragliding harness, one in the camera bag and one in the handlebar bag on my bike.

Yes the red "defines" that knife along with the symbol!
