Day 224

Victorinox *unknown* which could've been called a Bantam 3 or... Watch Case Opener, if that weren't already another knife. It's a Watch Case Opener in the body of a Bantam/Bantam 2. Maybe a custom request from Tudor? That couldn't have been the only time this was made... That watch case opening blade is much bigger than usual too.


Nice watch opener!!!
It has the same shape as mine in day #3
This is currently on production.

Really? It's not in the wiki and I've never seen it in the store...
Interesting!

To Syem and others, I have to be away from home for a couple of days.
So, I must withdraw from the 30 day in-a-row badge.

Some 84mm that were standing in the sidelines.
Bantam:

Small Huntsman:

One of my most sentimental with my name etched in blade:

I'm a bit late today.

Day #16 ....half way down...another frequently carried :like:

Tinker Small.

I guess early 80s as it has no 90 degrees stop on the cap lifter, no sew eye in the awl and keyring in the liner. It has a round screwdriver with can opener slot.

My all time favorite and still number 1 for EDC  :salute:

But don't assume it's early 80's right off the bat, at least not just because of the non-90 degrees stop or the awl with no hole.
For example, i have two early 2000's with no 90 degree stop. That's a fairly recent thing on the 84mm's.
As for the awl with no hole, it depends... there where at least two slightly different awls from mid 70's till early 90's with no hole. I almost never see this mentioned anywhere...  :think:

Here's two of my "vintage" small Tinkers, one from the early 80's, other from late 80's/early 90's, both round Philips with can opener groove, notice the difference in the awl:



Anyway.... sorry for sidetracking the topic a little bit....  :oops:

Carry on...  :cheers:

Thank you for comment and for following this thread :hatsoff:

I used Detron's SAK dating spreadsheet and jut comment some of the characteristics of this knife.

In my personal experience SAK dating is not an exact science as you well say, on the other hand there could be some pieces which could have been mod or just go through service to explain some of those kind of mysteries. :think:

I'm guilty of assuming that tools evolution for 84mm was the same as for 91mm

My Tinker's awl... On the left seems to be closer  to yours also on the left in your picture (the middle one in the comparative pic), is it the oldest one ??



What would we do without this nice discussions... :facepalm: :like:

Aah damn! We'll be missing out on all these and more of your exceptional beauties...

I think I read somewhere that as long as you take the pics every day you could post them all in one go when you're back (and have internet access again) and it would still count towards your badge.
Otherwise maybe you can get it next month? I'll do 91mm :D
