Campingmesser (Picknicker 91mm) without wood-saw
« on: April 13, 2018, 05:14:59 PM »
Hi, All!


Just faced with interesting fact - in old Victorinox catalog under the same name "Picknicker" were listed two models.
One of them is known as Picknicker 91 mm (or Campingmesser)
Another one - the same tool-set, but without wood-saw.


Does anybody know anything about second variation?
Thanks in advance!


If interesting: pictures of my Picknicker 91mm

Saw that catalog pic years ago but never seen one in real life. And I've looked. This has always been a weird knife to me - apparently popular enough to put in a catalog but in 10 years of collecting and looking at hundreds of thousands of sales on line - I've never seen a single one of these?

I've wondered many times if they had the idea, printed the catalog, maybe made a few prototypes and got feedback that was "Seriously? A camping knife without a saw? That's kind of stupid" and they thought "yeah, they're right - add a saw" so the first production models came out with a saw. All speculation of course. But I've seen damn near every other variation of knife made - even small scale weird config special run stuff for advertisers. Never seen what was, ostensibly, a main catalog model.

Are shankle and shackle both acceptable spellings for the same thing, or just a typo? Kind of like grey and gray.

Jazzbass, advertizing one was with regular, not serrated blade.
Regarding 'shackle', - I think it's a typo..

Here can be seen a modern one without saw but also without wavy blade. Probably an advertising run.

Wow. Was the decrease we see today due to automation and greater production?

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!
