Your are most welcome smile.gif I checked the site daily and was totally surprised to see it finally released after all of those daily "Coming Soons" that I had to blink several times to be sure I was reading it correctly... LOL. I then proceeded to scoop up 2. I guess my only disappointment is that the MacGyver engraved SAK is the small Executive size... but hey... I guess we'll take what we can get smile.gif

HAHA! Indeed! I have very little MacGyver related memorabilia, so for what it is with that price... I'll take it! It is a pretty cool display.

I think that was done purely for layout reasons - to make everything line up properly and look nice in the frame and having actually seen one in the flesh I have to say Paul's done a awesome job with these and they really are worth every penny.


I think they may have sold out. It's not on the site nay more!? unsure.gif

I've just seen a note from Paul saying that he's listing the item in small lots because he's traveling with RDA next week and doesn't want to get caught short with shipping out orders.

He's also posted a note to this effect on the item page saying any items ordered after April 10 will ship when he's back in the last week of April.

I have to agree! It's a very nice display! Since we MacGyver fans rarely get anything this cool, it's totally worth it.

Now, the question is... where do I put it? HAHA!

Got mine today happy_dance.gif VERY COOL sakopen.gif My only complaint... or more accurately... my only observation... is that Legends states you can add your own glass [it's shipped without for safety reasons] but there is no way to add glass to the of the frame since the SAK sticks out way beyond the frame itself. I may have to reframe it in a shadowbox type frame because I do want to protect the knife and laser signature from dust/damage. hmm.bmp

There were a few of these for sale at Starfest over the weekend, framed and unframed. I thought about buying one but when I saw there was no glass and no way to insert glass due to the sak.gif sticking out farther than the frame, as stated by Mac2Nite, I decided against getting one. I know I could have bought my own shadowbox frame but I'm a stickler for wanting it to look like it was when I purchased it and was pretty sure I wouldn't be able to find a thicker frame like the one it comes in.

One thing I noticed was that the sak.gif is a Classic model (the smallest of them all) which to the best of my knowledge MacGyver never used. Until I saw it in person, I thought that model of sak.gif in the frame was the same one / size as the one MacGyver is holding in the picture. This is neither good nor bad, I would just like for the sak.gif to match the picture.

The frame looks good, the Classic MacGyver knife - cool, the autograph a must, the image couldn't be more representative of the character. I may be the only one but I'm not too keen on the blurb. Seems a bit redundant for the fans that might be interested in this sort of thing. I'd prefer more of a semi- personal note saying. 'Many thanks for your continued support to the spirit of MacGyver and the endeavors of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.' ... that sort of prose would mean a bit more to me, myself & I.

I think the blurb makes it a collectable to anyone interested in television memorabilia rather than just MacGyver fans and therefore a possible investment for years to come.

This is a really nice looking item.

This must be the closest thing to an "official" collectable there's ever been?

Thank you everyone for your comments on the MacGyver knife display. I would like to comment on the glass issue concerning the knife protruding. We overcome this by inserting a spacer between the glass and the mat, typically a strip of black foam core does the trick. However, we are also looking into a slightly deeper frame for future editions.

Thanks for that update Legends... I'm still thrilled with my 2 purchases and I can apply the foam insert you suggest myself... great idea.

I also noticed that the SAKs in mine are engraved with ALL of the letters in MacGyver capitalized & the same size, unlike the demo version which has his name correctly engraved with the large "M" and the smaller "AC" in Mac. Was this a last minute change that went unnoticed? The write-up below the SAK has the name written correctly.

Excuse the angle of my photo... I tried to avoid having my flash reflect off of the SAK on mine:

No excuse for that. ohmy.gif They just need some better QC(quality control) on the engraver(s) they farm out to do the lettering. That's all. sakopen.gif

Edit: Actually, Mac2Nite - I would contact them and request an exchange of the knife .... because that specific
lettering is so iconic and synonymous with the MacGyver brand/logo .... 'engraved' in fan's minds really through the explosive graphics used with ..... thus nothing else is really acceptable.

I think it's kind of amateurish and not unlike a bait and switch where you are shown one product and sent another. Where was the engraving done? China? unsure.gif

Generally speaking, I've seen it spelled MacGyver and MacGYVER. Is one more correct than the other?

Traditionally, the 'ac' is of a smaller font size from the rest of the surname in Scottish et al names. I'm from Nova Scotia and you would certainly raise an eyebrow if you saw the whole 'Mac....." surname printed in a uniform font size. Just going through the phone book now and it's all spelled the same way as the MacGyver on the show and any deviation would most certainly catch one's eye.

Not a big deal and for the engraver just an extra type set and/or extra run. Perhaps they were just cutting corners a bit .... but I wonder why Legends would put the correct name graphic on for the sales pitch and then have the lesser one sent out for shipment.

Maybe they had the prototype done at one source and the larger order carried out at another. Who knows .....
