« on: May 24, 2018, 03:33:16 AM »
Does anyone have some information on this 58mm Midnight Messenger?
It was gifted to me from member Boonies to add to my boxed collection of small Victorinox, thank you Boonies!!!  :tu:  :salute:  :cheers:
I didn't see it listed in the SAKWiki.  It has the tools of a Midnite Manager with red LED.

The SAK itself is a Midnite Manager... Essentially a Rambler with pen and light... Or a Manager with Light...

jaya_man, do you think it should be added to the Manager page, that one version of it is called a Midnight Messenger?

Maybe they call it Messenger because of the Celidor scales? My Manager has translucent scales.

Maybe it's just a typo?

Possibly, but they broke convention and spelled Midnight correctly.  :tu:

Is this something that was actually put out by Victorinox?  Reason I ask is the leather fob is something I have and one recently shown by a member.  The fob is made in China on mine and the members, is yours also made in china?  Does Vic have items made elsehere?  The part number as far I can find shows up as a night watch man.

I think they have some leather items stitched in Turkey, this is the second leather Victorinox/Wenger item I've had from there:

Another idea - it was done by SAB (they often gave new names for existing models..)  :ahhh

Personally, I think it needs to be clarified first... but will leave it with Huntsman, Leaf and the rest of the SAKWiki team to decide...

Just like Leaf, I think this might be some error on Swiss Army Brands (SAB) part... just my hunch though... no hard facts to back it up... I think the SAK itself was sold by SAB as Midnite Manager... but no info available on this particular set...

SAB did at one time market another SAK, Explorer, as the Yeoman... Hence the Yeoman Conspiracy...

BSA Huntsman.. (In fact - Fieldmaster). If I'm not mistaken - also was released by SAB.

Just looking in details, FB’s particular model wasn’t distributed by SAB... but by TRG... ahhh, the plot thickens :lol:

Swissarmy.com is owned by SAB to my understanding... But TRG accessories makes Victorinox luggages on license... Here’s some info...

https://www.bizjournals.com/stlouis/news/2014/08/05/swiss-victorinox-buys-trg-accessories-from-centric.html

This further leads me to think that TRG doesn’t know SAKs well... Hence the typo?
