Thanks for this H... nice to have it compiled all in one place... So far been using Ulli’s tang stamp chart and Saam’s tool evolution to date SAKs

If I’m not mistaken, Ulli also shared a chart of Victorinox and Wenger Shield Logos used on scales... just can’t find it...

This demonstrates the issue with being able to go back and edit your posts (there was a thread about this a few days ago) -  now my post which was insightful and very useful appears to be the post of someone who dis not read the OP post.

There is a document by Victorinox titled "Everything you need to know about Multi-tools and cutlery" which is currently available for download at https://www.nyttigbras.dk/nblibrary/victorinox-everything-you-need-to-know-about-multi-tools-and-cutlery.pdf
It contains a lot of relevant information and may be appropriate for linking here. In particular, page B8 of this document has what appears to be a polished version of the "Victorinox Chronology" document. I attach a PDF file with just this page.

Also, the following is an excellent resource on Swiss soldier knives: https://www.couteaux-du-soldat-suisse.ch/J01/index.php/en/

Thanks for putting our dating threads in a sticky Hiraethus - What an honour !!   :tu:

Should we be putting a wee note in the first post above, or even in the first post of each original thread to remind readers to check the later pages of the thread for the latest version of the document
Certainly my first version is way, way inferior to the latest one!

Or even copy the latest version to the first post - Maybe not the best option as that means on-going work ???

You’re welcome! Since I have no idea how stable is the link I provided, I wonder if it's possible to make this document available on SAKWiki. :think:
