Interesting tool on a old SAK officer
« on: September 11, 2019, 02:14:03 AM »
Got this one today , from I guess the 1940's with horn scales  .... no can opener :)

The Tang Stamp is for Moser Signau (with inoxyd on reverse)

The little timber scribe looks good but would only be for light work

Great condition

Super cool knife, John.   I wonder if the little scribing tool may also have been for leather work?  Regardless, it's a beautiful pair of knives you have there.  Congratulations.

Looks like a farrier trimming knife for the inside of a horses hoof.  Victorinox made those too, look at the tang stamp.  Very nice 👍👍👍.    :cheers:

I think it is a horse hoof tool also.

Water, water, every where,
 And all the boards did shrink;
 Water, water, every where,
 Nor any drop to drink.

Indeed, it looks like a timber scribe (aka a race knife) and not like a hoof knife. There is a stand-alone version of this tool (model 282) in page 48 of the 1942 Elsener Catalog:



It looks like this timber scribe blade may be made of carbon steel while the rest of the SAK is made of stainless steel. Is that really the case?

Yep I would say the Timber Scribe is Carbon steel.

It's an interesting knife .... not sure if it was a special order or maybe a Moser Signau in house mod
