Thank you SG.  :cheers:
I have no more deals in the works, so it's likely a good stopping point for the vintage ones.
I still have one more modern one I'd like to get (Picnicker)...then I may take a break.

One of the few times I've been outright swindled on eBay for a knife was for one of these. Seller was in France, I wired the money, and he simply never sent the knife. No paypal so I was out the money. SOB sold the knife a year later on eBay again to a seller in France.

Most people are decent, but there's a few in every group that need defenistration from an upper story.

Yep - I am lucky too - I have always had good experiences - Although many very nervous moments - Eg Shipping taking eight weeks or more
Once Australia Post, in their wisdom  ???, even returned a package to the sender - when it was correctly addressed - and I was at home, during what would have been the delivery period
The seller (in US) very kindly shipped again - And even offered to pay for the re-ship - We split it in the end

One of the few times I've been outright swindled on eBay for a knife was for one of these. Seller was in France, I wired the money, and he simply never sent the knife. No paypal so I was out the money. SOB sold the knife a year later on eBay again to a seller in France.
But that really stinks JB - and clearly, brazen, outright fraud - As he 'sold it again later' (Thinks:  ??? I knew JB kept good records - But that is impressive!!)
It makes me very angry and upset - I know I am naïve - But I want to believe folk are honest !!

Presumably he did the same trick second time around
A bit difficult for you to send in the heavies from the US to France - But I hope his French compatriot did !! And gave him a good beating

And I hope he got nailed as an ebay seller too

Nice knife! Have the same one. It is interesting that this inlay is shown in 1942 Elsener catalog.

OK, OK - I can see I am going to have to do this myself.  :pok:
Good chance to exercise my new found Vintage SAK naming skills - Thanks to the info provided by JB (earlier in this thread I think!!)
So here we go: ..... Top to bottom and left to right: .....
  • 236 fa - Angler Plus
  • 136 k - Artisan (Fieldmaster - Small, or even Craftsman ??? )
  • 235 ku - Climber Small
  • 234 u - Standard - I guess not a Spartan as no tp/tw
  • 234  - Standard
  • 205* ku - Tourist - * Your number - see below
  • 237 u - Camper
  • 136 u - Modded to be a Fieldmaster

Seriously - Thanks for posting the info and pic - Love it and appreciate it      :)

* Was the model number for the Tourist on its box FB - As I was not sure why this was not a 234 ku - as I think the 5 in xx5 indicates scissors and I was not sure what the 0 in x0x was

And just noticed - Interestingly
- Only one with tp/tw
- And 1:3 Phillips:CS ratio - Hmmmmm

Hello Huntsman, thank you for your naming efforts.  I don't recall why I named that what I did except I thought someone at some point told me it was that, unsure who/where, and even quite possibly me trying to name it.

The set you just named are my non-boxed set with large awls.

Here are my boxed ones, much easier to name.  :D  :pok:  :cheers:



Top row:
246k a
no markings
134ku

248kU
0.5700.61
1.4713. other side of box is136aU

That number came from me, and actually should be 206U.

A while ago FB posted an early 1940s Tourist and asked for a model number. From the late 1940s-1970s the Spartan/Tourist numbers were 234/234k. I knew however that Pre-1946 Victorinox was still using the original model numbers for the Spartan and Tourist. The original number for the Spartan is 205, so I told her the Tourist from this era was a 205k. When I got home I looked this up to verify, and found I made a mistake - pre-1946 Victorinox used the Model number 206 for the Tourist, instead of the typical "91mm model number + k" scheme they used for the other knives. I corrected the original post and added this except from the 43 catalog. Here you can see two Tourists labled "206", a Spartan labeled "205". Note the Gourmets in this images (84mm and 91mm) following the more usual "91mm model + k = 84mm model"
