Got another what is this? Unknown symbol help on a SAK
« on: March 06, 2012, 01:12:36 AM »
This symbol is on a nice Huntsman Plus but there are no other markings other than the metal inlay logo on the front scale. Anyone know? I have Googled 24K in different ways to no avail.

24 Karat [carat] as in gold standard? The inlay that is :think:

5 years later....

I just ended up with one of these... doesn't seem like much progress has been made...   ???

Pretty certain it's not the Arlington Cemetery thing (2010) because this knife was made between '91 - '05

I'll keep looking for 31/2 minutes.

Best of luck on your search though.

Only slightly closer to identifying this logo. I found this SAK sold on eBay and it has a Breitling watch logo on the sheath and the small SAK has the 24k logo in question.  A question to the seller did not reveal anything.

This is very interesting.

The red cellidor scales with 24k inlay look very nice.
The carbon Classic SD has a plastic logo inlay, and in the second photo (on eBay) the inlay is askew.

The logo is 24K in a laurel. Things as memorial, or celebration/victory come to mind. Possibly a milestone.
From what I can see the huntsman is a recent model.

The Classic SD has 2014 in the logo.

24K makes me think of jewels at first. Like gold or diamonds.
However, it can also be a race. 24000m?

Perhaps it's not 24K, but K24. This does not yield any results however.

What if it's a verse? I had to look it up but Kings 1:24 reads:
24Then Nathan said, "My lord the king, have you said, 'Adonijah shall be king after me, and he shall sit on my throne'?

Or Kings 2:4:
4Elijah said to him, "Elisha, please stay here, for the LORD has sent me to Jericho." But he said, "As the LORD lives, and as you yourself live, I will not leave you." So they came to Jericho.

Neither  makes sense to me in combination with the laurels.

A reverse image search does not yield any results. I tried the logo from the foto and edited black on white and white on black.

This is an interesting one. I'll keep it on my mind.

By the way, how are these special editions made? Are they completely made by Victorinox? Or do they outsource special scales? The Carbon scales on the SD look to be of sub-par quality.
If Victorinox makes these, perhaps we can ask them?

That's a very thoughtful analysis. Very interesting indeed. I implore you to ask Victorinox. I'll be excited to see what they say. I have a Huntsman on the way I will post pictures once it arrives.

Came across this old thread somehow

I had always thought that Vic did the inlays - See this title and inlay page shots from their Promotional Product Catalogue (- Can't remember where I found this !!)

Although I guess others could make them too - For sure other companies make printed scales - eg with pictures, words, logos etc

Do you mean the brochure? I´ve got a few from IgoPost, a Helmond based company that does these prints on SAKs and other stuff.

I mean the brochure with the metal inlaid logos. Those are from IgoPost? I see the DEA knife there, does this suggest that they made the SAKs with that logo?

I don´t think so. The brochures are printed by Vx, I guess there´s a fair number of companies doing these things.
