I thought about posting some of the SAKs I have pictures of, but most have been posted in other threads here and I'm sure most are sick of seeing the same knives over and over. Here are three interesting ones I don't think I've posted before. The Cadillac is interesting in that it's much newer than you usually see for this model. You don't typically see them after about 1972.

Officially they don't really. I think this was a custom run for Coutellerie du Mont Blanc. It's the only one I've ever seen.

Any additional info regarding frame size, model name, number, year of manufacture will be much appreciate it...

Here are a couple of ones I have, and I am uncertain of their age. I do know they are old. Any info on them would be greatly appreciated.

The first is what SAKWiki calls a Student. However, my copy isn't 75mm, but more like 73mm.







this next one is 75mm and your guess is as good as mine. Probably better as I don't know what this one is called.









And both of them together.

Never enough of these beautiful oldies, jazzbass... If you can find your previous posts about them it will be most generous of you to incorporate those links in this thread. All together in one place moto.
Btw, very nice pictures (knives), like from the catalog (book). :)

Before and after shots of my old Wenger with dog-leg opener and non-backspring scissors.
I have had this knife since I was a kid. It is what brought me to MTO in the first place searching for info on it.
I decided to retire it and give it a makeover with brass liners and polishing the aluminium scales I made for it 20 years ago.

Just beautiful work there. I remember reading your posts from a few months ago, before you had started the restoration. There's an almost impossible to convey sense of value and attachment to an item that's been so well used and then so lovingly restored.

Here is my rather uncommon Wenger. Found this on Craigslist.




Is that a pate spreader?  :think:

That would be a file as well as a mud scraper/snow scraper, but I guess you could use it as a pate spreader.  :D

I think this belongs here :) The only vintage SAK so far, in my small but growing collection. Elinox alox pioneer, late 1950'S?

I like that last one because it has a mirrored can opener where you would expect a bottle opener or maybe a combo tool.

Yes that's a cool one, and it's almost mint. Got it in a trade with jazzbass, very happy with that.

The combination of the sharpened bottle opener, patent marked can opener, clip shaped pen blade, and shackle on this old Victoria Champion places it at around 1968, according to what I have been able to gather.  It also has the file on the Phillips screwdriver, but does not have a long nail file, nor does it have toothpick and tweezers.  The wood saw is also finished with a very high polish.

It is absolutely solid and in superb condition.  I keep it hanging by my desk.

This is a Master Craftsman, not a Champion. Model 136mU if you want to be precise. The polished saw would date it to around 1962-1963. Very nice knife.

You are right! And I think those three 74mm's were yours once ;)
The other horn scaled one and both 84mm SAKs have been sold as well.

Wow thanks!  I thought it may have been a Master Craftsman, but the closest I could find on SAKWiki was Champion.  I appreciate your insight.
