The main UK importer has now replied and said they know nothing of it :(
I've pointed them to the German site so I'll wait for their response.

I've pinged Victorinox on social media to confirm, see if they respond.

Ever dutiful, I have gone and registered for their newsletter. Perhaps that way, I'll get to hear the truth from the horse's mouth, as it were, about this tantalisingly wonderful new offering from Victorinox... We shall see!

Still not available in the UK as far as the UK suppliers are concerned :(

Still, I've managed without one for this long, a little longer won't matter :)

That's a great price! But it's the Farmer with the scissors that I want :) - I've already got the Farmer and it's my 'smart dress' carry but I miss the scissors.

Yeah, thought they had gone up.

Bought mine when they dipped below £20 on Amazon, £18 and change.. but was several years ago.

I pre-ordered one in Germany. It comes available in a week or 2.
Ii combined a SAK myself with a saw, scissors, knife and awl. Which is my go to outdoors SAK.

Does anyone have any experience of the Victorinox Bantam? The single blade and can/bottle opener combo sounds really interesting for a lightweight option, but I'm wondering how well the can opener holds up to use?
