A different model is chosen each year, or sometimes, in more recent years, custom models have been created. They are only available in limited quantities, so are prized by some SAK collectors. This external site lists images of some of the annual VSAKCS models.
Note: The VSACKS series should not be confused with the SOSAK Annual Knife Series which is another series of annually released knives issued by a different group.

* 2004 Model Muddle !
There were two versions of the VSAKCS 2004 Soldier. The original shipment, bearing the 04 date stamp and the regular Victorinox shield, somehow became lost in transit. The re-issue of the knife came with the Soldier shield and a date stamp of 05. The original shipment was found many months later, and ended up in a Victorinox warehouse sale at their Shelton distribution centre in Connecticut!
