I see with the recent value of Driver's tool or Vanity kits that a few reproductions have appeared for sale. Some are decent, others are nothing more than a logo. But then there's the hard to find HSV pocket knife. The usual type was the top with the light grey. One or two sellers have the all black version, with logo. Does anyone know if this version exer existed, on any model? I realise that it's the next best thing if you can't find the original, but they are still expensive for someone simply dry-decaling a bulk purchase of black Victorinox Swiss pocket knives, if even genuine Victorinox.

The original torches seem to be this plain black Solitaire type. There's also another chunky style but I've seen them used also, may be off different model, or maybe 2 suppliers, who knows. Except the second version, not shown here, is half the price.

I remember asking the guy I bought from VE from asking where is the HSV toolkit and him looking at me weird. Shame I never kept the one from my VT clubsport, they would have sold for a pretty penny now I bet.

These came with an E3 Maloo.

Something tells me, there might have been a HSV kit with my E1 Clubsport but by the time I got it, it was gone :(

I remember it had tweesers, finger nail clipper and maybe a bottle opener. I may be completely wrong, that was a long long time ago.

Yes, that's possibly the vanity kit as per Senator. More more interested in variations in the pocketknife that I posted.

They never came with that knife, that’s just a $20 eBay knife with a sticker slapped on.
There were only two types and both were silver. The more rare version was the solingen.
