I can't tell if this is an 84mm or 91mm. 
What do you think?
If I had to guess I would think 84mm, but then that's because I'd like it to be an 84mm.

I'm guessing 91mm.
Because I've never seen that type of can opener in 84mm. But that doesn't mean anything :)

I was looking at this SakWiki page and trying to compare the two.

Hmmm ... The picture in the Wiki page? ???  ;)
Or is that a 91 masquerading as a 84?  ???

Someone here posted and easy way to check 84 vs 91 from an ebay piccie

But I did not bookmark the post :twak: - Something to do with the positioning of the shield relative to the corkscrew pivot point I think
You may want to dig - If anyone finds it or posts - We coudl put the info in the Wiki !! :tu:

Correct, it has something to do with a pinky finger distance between the two I think.  :think:

Since this is a pre-1951 knife, it uses the old style dimensions so the typical ways of distinguishing 84mm and 91mm don't apply. The only things you can try to use are the size of the Victorinox logo on the scales (which is super tough) or use the saw, if there is one. 84mm knives from this era will have a 25T saw and 91mm will have a 27T saw. This looks like it has a 27T saw, but its hard to tell with the poor image quality/part of the saw hidden.

Thank you JB for your input.  I should have the knife in hand later this week to know for sure.  :tu:

Mine is 91mm, but I couldn't be happier.  It's as if it was never used at all.  I tucked the flap on the case to show the writing on the sheath.

That's a great find. Those late 40s knives show up now and then in unused condition (spent their life at the bottom of a shoebox in a closet I imagine) and when you get one, you understand the quality and craftsmanship that went into them. They are solid. The snap is amazing. The fit and finish almost perfect and the blades are polished to a mirror shine. Modern SAKs are still well made, but ones from this era are simply on another level.

Wow FB - That SAK is amazing - As JB said its been stuck in a drawer for 70 years
- Although how that can happen I am not sure - as it must span a couple of human lifetimes!!

I also checked the suppliers photo in your post above .... and it so does not do the SAK justice - That's a real score.

Boonies - Nice pic and very nice set - I love all the oldies - But the 84mm oldies are even more exciting !

Lisa,

What a fantastic SAK!  Be super careful and don't let the inside of the snap rivet on the leather case damage the scale of the knife. 

Congratulations!

Thank you all for the kind words. 
I do believe this is the 91mm mate to the 84mm version I bought last year.  :tu:

Good point about being careful with the snap, Myron, thank you.

Thank you Lisa...
I really like natural material for the scales such as buffalo horn, stag, MoP etc. along with at least Victoria tang stamps and older one off course. It's a simple Spartan but it's a superb quality and it looks very nice as well.
