Kantonsmesser 2014
« on: October 25, 2014, 02:13:26 PM »
This year the "Kantonsmesser" is dedicated to the Swiss Canton of Vaud. It’s a Canton in the french speaking part of Switzerland.





This year they changed a few details on the blades cutting and etching.
The laser cutting of the rounded lines is a tiny bit wider, while the cutting of the cross and “arrow” parts are a tiny bit narrower. This results in a more balanced overall look.

The picture below shows a comparison between a blade of an earlier edition (top) and the new edition (bottom).



On the backside of the blade this year the same canton’s crest as on the front side is etched. The earlier editions have the Victorinox Logo etched on the backside as showed in the second picture below.

Excellent looking SAK. :tu:

I've been discussing with Karl/ColoSwiss that we need a Series page for the Kantonsmesser for the wiki. As far as I know you have the most complete collection of them on the forum, and take great pictures too. ;)

So if you ever have some free time for that, would you mind doing a write up on their history, models used, which year for which canton and so on, we would be very grateful, be it as a thread here or per email. :hatsoff: (German would be fine too ;) )

That's ok. I'll write some info about the serie and I already have lots of pictures, so I'll post or send you some material. But I'll need a bit of time, a week or two  :)

Thanks, :hatsoff:

I'm a bit buried in real life work and stuff so I'll be creating the page when I have a bit more free time and can give it the attention it deserves.

Temporary version, I still need to finish it and so some edits and add links.

If you see something that needs fixing, let me know.

Well hopefully this should be it.

I added the clickable links to the table and a link leading back to this thread in case someone looking at the page has the missing early Canton SAKs.

Please read through it and check for spelling or similar mistakes as neither Martin not I are native speakers. Also, if you see any broken links or links leading to the wrong picture, let me know. There are about 90 links to pictures there and it could easily be that I made a mistake or two. ;)

Thanks again Victor7000 for providing the pictures and all the info for this series. I think it must be the largest and picture heaviest Wiki page we have so far. (except maybe the Pioneer page :D )
