My new Golfer 84mm. This is the "true" Golfer (Image removed from quote.)
Not sure I've ever seen 84mm yellow scales, but it would sure be nice.

This thread needs some attention. Here's an interesting one - officially called a 232kaU by Victorinox. It's not a Golfer, but rather a cellidor version of the alox Voyageur from the late 1960s. This was an odd knife at the time, as the only 84mm knives with cap lifter combo-tools were the Elinox branded alox knives. The alox versions all had unpolished tools and "Elinox" stamps, where as the 232kaU has fully polished tools and a "Victoria" stamp. The oddest thing about this knife is that has a nickel-silver divider between the layers, just like the Voyageur. I unofficially and unimaginatively call this a "Cellidor Voyageur".(Image removed from quote.)......
My 84mm love is definitely Recruits
Vintage Victorinox/Victoria 237kU, it has seen quite a bit of use. The saw is really pollished on this one.

Nice one - I really wanted that one All 84mm and 91mm saws - except for on the Elinox knives - are fully polished until the early 1960s. Some of the earliest "small awl" versions (back when they still had the shackle) have the polished saw, but they seemed to disappear pretty quickly and the vast majority of the knives made after the switch to the small awl are unpolished. Is that a 25 or 35 tooth saw?
My 84mm love is definitely Recruits, I've got one tucked away everywhere, the scales on the Zebra one I took from a spare Bantam.(Image removed from quote.)
I have not only alox anymore, but I have some other old SAK's to. This is an like new 84mm from 1946 I think.(Image removed from quote.)(Image removed from quote.)
The Lady Golfer? Even a Swiss Army Knife can be elegant. The picture does not do her justice though, I'll have to work on that.(Image removed from quote.)
And Jan, did you get that one from a guy from Amersfoort?
Well here's my EDCsource buy. No ordinary Climber, but an 84mm one. (Image removed from quote.)
