I try to get more informations about the Wenger Evolution 565 - actually it’s not in the SAKWiki - maybe we get a new article for this model...

Dear Knights,

I have created  a Victorinox Christmas Series page in the SAKWiki.

If somebody with a native English knowledge could check it for mistakes, I would be very grateful.
Any corrections and additions are welcome too.

Thank you in advance!  :salute:

Very nice page! Just 2 suggestions on the landing page. I had a quick look at the links and they look OK. In English, the inverted commas are kept at the top, e.g. “the quick fox”.

“...Since 2015 Victorinox every year produces a special edition of knives for the Christmas.

Where There are two sub-series...”

Shame on me!  :(

Fixed (I hope :) ).

Woo Hoo   :woohoo:   :hatsoff:   
I don't think I had put this page in the to do list in this thread - But it was definitely in my mental to do list
I was originally thinking two pages - But if they are both always Christmas editions it makes sense to merge them - And the top photo of the coloured scales with the white is just great   :cheers:
So I am very happy that you have created this page Nick4  ..... Thank you   :tu:

As Nick4 will tell y'all - He does all this great work - Then I come along and fiddle with it - And Nick is always so gracious towards my fiddling - Thank you again Nick   :D    :salute:

Anyway I've done it again on the Christmas knives - I thought we should take out the multiple repetitions of the word special edition in the model list and pic description  and also the year of issue
I also thought that we should make the hyper link title just reference the model page - as that is where the link goes - ie to prevent users clicking the link and getting to a page they just visited. 

EDIT PS: I was tempted to change 'All models (but 1.3704.3E1) are sold in special packaging' to say 'All models (bar 1.3704.3E1) are sold in special packaging'.
Private joke between Nick and I  !!   ;)

Let me know if the changes are OK or not

Seeing a few SAKWiki admins here,  :whistle:

I thought I’d chime in with a suggested edit for the Pioneer page, as some models are missing from the list. These are the South African-specific models that were a limited edition production run:

Pioneer Red Alox (0.8201.20R4)
Pioneer Blue Alox (0.8201.22R4)
Pioneer Black Alox (0.8201.23R4)
Pioneer Green Alox (0.8201.24R4)
Pioneer Orange Alox (0.8201.79R4)

Pics below. Tried to get the colors accurate. Pretty close, just the red a little too saturated.

I was checking out my favorite tool, the Pocket Toolchest on the wiki, and I followed the link to the Reamer page.  No 65mm Reamer/awl on that page.

Hey Max - Thanks for this - Are these models the same as variation 7 in the Pioneer page or are they a different set/run

https://sakwiki.com/tiki-index.php?page=Pioneer#Variations

If different we should also add them as a different variation - If not we can add the pic to that line item

Huntman , perhaps you can add some info to the HELMSMAN page https://www.sakwiki.com/tiki-index.php?page=Helmsman
The MARINER is mentioned in that page but there is no further info.
Attached a MARINER picture. This SAK has a full serrated blade and not partially like the HELMSMAN .

@ Max - Added the family pic to the Pioneer SA variation

@ Ivo - Thanks for the info - I added the pic and a new variation - Now No. 4
Not too happy with this page (or at least the variations section)  - It's a bit confusing with the name change (over time?) and possibly different names in different markets
For instance - Is variation 2 the same as variation 5 ? ??? ....... It looks like it - And was Helmsman CS an official name (I added the comments in brackets today)
- I know previous editors sometimes made up names in some instances !!   :o

If anyone can think of better wording please let me know - or make the change if you are an editor!

Huntsman, could you add the 65mm awl/reamer to the Reamer page on SAKWiki?

Hi Smiler
- Thanks for the heads up on this omission - and the great piccie (that matches the others - cudos)
Will update soon - The whole page needs a bit of work as the piccies have gone tiny - This can be fixed but it's a  bigger job

Re the Helmsman/Mariner - LeaF has chipped in with some useful info - I also checked the Wiki gallery - And this is where we are:
Please review and if we all agree I'll update accordingly ....

The Mariner was the first version and it had a fully serrated blade and regular red scales
The Mariner was also available in a corkscrew version
The Helmsman was the later incarnation and introduced the blue scales
The Helmsman was available with fully or partially serrated blades..... (as was the Skipper)
The fully serrated version was unofficially known as a Helmsman CS

Possibly either name was used in different markets?  Any thoughts?  ???  Or was it purely a time and scale thing - as described above?

I am not sure where the CS name came from (maybe a Wiki editor? ???) and why CS? - As CS normally means corkscrew
- Maybe - Completely Serrated - This is a bit confusing  :pok:
If we think this is an unofficial/made up name - I would rather change it to FS - Fully serrated - Which is what the Wiki uses elsewhere.

Any comments or more enlightenments folks ?  ???

Thanks all

Just a question to soldier knives experts... Any reason why there is no model 1908 listed?

Soldier 1890 page mentions that same model with some variations continued on until 1951...

Whilst, LCSAS has a separate listing for 1908... the page even has a blue print for model 1908...

http://www.couteaux-du-soldat-suisse.ch/J01/index.php/en/les-couteaux-du-soldat

http://www.couteaux-du-soldat-suisse.ch/J01/images/photos_site/modeles/1908/1908.pdf

I can understand model 1901 isn’t there as some experts considered this to be the same as model 1890 except for the scales...

Hey Huntsman, wanna use this pic for the Wenger Soldat 1961 page?




It shows my specimens for the Soldat /Standard Issue (16520) / Swiss Army 70... I will need to take a better one... looks a bit dark...

Jaya are you suggesting a whole new page for the 1908 model?

So the main difference from 1890 model to 1908 is the drop point to spear point - Right?

In the Wiki we say this:

1890 Soldier Developments
The original Swiss Soldier Knife was issued to Swiss troops beginning in 1891, and has continued every year to the present day. This model was issued until 1951. Karl Elsener’s company, in conjunction with other Swiss cutlers, took over production in late 1891.
- The knives were originally produced with wooden handles, regular carbon steel and a drop-point blade.
- After 1901 the handles were switched to a brown wooden fibrous material.
- In 1908 the blade was switched to a clip-point design.
- Knives produced from 1921 (to the present day) have the year of production stamped on the tang of the main blade as two digits: YY - e.g. '36 ' for 1936. 

So I think we have it covered ?   :think:

LCAS for sure will always be the definitive source for Soldier information

Thoughts Soldier experts ?
