I recently picked up a Bijou (fingernail cleaner model) with a four line tang stamp: Victorinox/Switzerland/Stainless.Rostrei. But the reverse tang stamp is a crossbow and Victoria (1943-1970). That tang mark should indicate pre 1970, but Sakwiki says the Bijou was first made in 1980. Help - I don't understand how it can be both???Rich
Thanks, I guess Sakwiki needs some updating. Also forgot to mention it is an advertising piece "Ship by Southern Railway System" incised in gold script.This makes it my 64th SAK.Rich
Ulli -Sorry no digicam. The knife is the same as on Sakwiki; just the info on Sakwiki is incorrect.Rich
but has nothing to do with this patent number, because that was used on 74 mm knives, not on the 58 mm line.
Wiki Bijou page updated - Also added a para to the main 58mm page re model numbering and names Let me know any comments/feedback!
