Puttin' on the Hoffritz
« on: June 10, 2017, 07:09:32 AM »
Hey folks, just going through used SAKs in the collection, looking at stamps and stuff.  Thought I'd start a thread about Hoffritz-stamped SAK's.  You guys should post your Hoffritz SAKs too... 

Here we have a Super Tinker and Climber '61-'68 best I can tell, and also a Tinker Small which I place 68-74.

I find the different stamps interesting.

Ain't it crazy how small the stamp is on that TInker Small (above, far right)?

Sweet!  Looks the same as my Tinker Small above... maybe we're seeing an early 70's 84mm trend here...

Yes there is.  My primitive pic taker won't focus well enough to grab it though!

Pre-saw Camper


Why is this not a Spartan?  :think:


Essentially it is but it is before the Spartan name was used

:like: yep, and the Huntsman was a Woodsman (Old Huntsman had inverted scissors placement.), and the Climber a President at one time...  I wonder what the Camper was called in the '60s..  Haven't been able to find it.

I've this Executive.
The stamp is only on the scale. I bought used, so I don't know if knife or scales was exchanged, or it was made effectively in this way

That's and awesome exec.
Once they got to the late 80's/90's it seems they stopped stamping the tangs.  They sold out to Lifetime Hoan in '95, and as far as I know, no more Hoffritz SAKs after that date.  :salute:

Salesman showed up today and it's great!  I love my Super Tinker but the 84mm size and lack of the key ring make the Salesman that much more pocket friendly.
Anyone know the best way to straighten that small blade?  Also, all the tools are super stiff.  On MTs I usually do a Dawn bath and a PB Blaster soak but I doubt that would be great for the scales.  Any recommendations on the best way to clean and free up the tools?
