This one is not too special, but I just opened the package today and there is some sun for pics so...

84mm Brass Liners, spacer, pins.  Only the one tang stamp.  Can't remember the name for these scales. I can't remember if this one is much different than me or others have shown in the past but the brass liners I really like.

Speaking of Brass Liners, spacers, pins... There is something classy in brass.   :tu:

I just got a couple older SAK's
The one on left is stamped Elinox, it is a Spartan, no Pat on opener and the thing I am curious about is the color of the scales.
Is this tomato red normal for a certain time period?

Not sure what model the other is.
VSSR stamped,+Pat on opener, small clip point blade, scissors, bottle opener, backside has awl and Phillips w/file.
Any info would be great. Thanks.

I was determine "Vintage" term for this thread in my first post here:
"let's say, from the beginning around 1890 till ca. 1970., all sizes old timers and both brand (Victorinox & Wenger) in one place, are most welcome."

So you are most welcome with your peace detron...  :tu:

Thanks. She is a nice one. I will carry her every now and again. I like using the can opener on it. Very neat how it works.

That counts IMO. Everyone's terminology is different, but I consider anything before 1970 "vintage". Here are some of my older Lumberjacks from the 1950s. Interestingly, the pins on both the 240kUs are brass, not nickel-silver. These are the only knives from the era I've ever seen with brass pins, but I've seen it consistently on these 240kU models. The 1240kU is a very early Elinox model - if you look close enough you can kind of see the unpolished main and pen blades.

Nice! What are the tang stamps on the main blade? Armee Suisse/Inoxyd?

Very nice Morkoni! All others too btw, nice to see.  :tu:
Who knows more about Fischer? I've seen it before, also with the Elinox-style emblem. Quite rare, no?

Thanks Herman...
Not much is known about the Fischer company but all I know is that the company Fischer was a wholesaler in Switzerland, Victorinox importer for the Baltic countries viz a small area of Eastern Europe. Victorinox produced under the brand name Fischer some pocket tools around '57-'58.
More info on this tang stamp is always appreciated...  :tu:

It's always nice to see when somebody back to life an old timer especially like this one. I more prefer restoration type by restoring it to its original state but that's just me...  :)
Nevertheless this is a very nice work, I must say...   :cheers:

I just got this one,  anyone able to help date it?  or ID it?





Large blade Tang obverse



the small blade tang stamp



Shield




Rear inlaid "GENEVE"



showing the top view of layers



the bail



Cork screw is fluted, but only 4 turns.



Awl, can opener, and bottle opener







single sided file





notice how short?



Fish scaler





hard to see, but the tip is thicker than the main part of the scaler



Saw









Scissors



just below the screw here you can see a second notch that is like a nail nick



main blade is not what it use to be



small blade



so, here is my newest SAK and though it is "well used?"  I love it




If I can help, let me know

Nice one detron...  :tu:
Actually it seems exactly like yours Cap with addition of bail... regarding identification it will be pretty hard to do that especially with some older Wenger models, there is a considerable lack of information related to older models.  :(

Got my Victoria marked Climber in....




...and as some of you already saw, I discovered I had a Victorinox Passenger in my possession (it was stuck in with a bunch of Explorers I bought a couple of years ago).
