14. Where can I find some technical info like blade steels and what years certain tools were introduced?Technical info can be found all over this site, the SOSAK forum at Knifeforums.com and at both the Victorinox and Wenger homepages. Here is a selection of common answers:* Blades – Stainless chrome molybdenum steel, mixed from carbon, chrome, molybdenum, manganese & silicum.* Blade Hardening – 1,900 degrees F. (and annealing temperature of 140 degrees). RC 56.* Wood saw, scissors and nail files – RC 53.* Screwdrivers, tin openers and awls – RC 52.* Corkscrew and springs – RC 49.* Separators – Nickel silver until 1951; Alox since 1951.* Rivets – Brass.* Scales – Cellidor.* Can opener – Patented in 1951.* Bottle opener – Introduced in 1942.* Keyring – Replaced shackle in 1968.* Tweezers – Introduced in 1902.* Wood Saw – Introduced in 1902.* Scissors – Introduced in 1902.* Multi-Purpose Hook – Introduced in 1991.* Fish scaler – Introduced in 1952.* Nail file – Introduced in 1952.* Chisel – Introduced in 1985.* Phillips screwdriver – Introduced in 1952.* Ballpoint pen – Introduced in 1985.* Mini-screwdriver – Patented in 1983.This is credited as Info by Victorinox - For both blades we use chrome molydenum stainless steel with 0.52% carbon, 15% chromium, 0.5% molydenum, 0.45% manganese and 0.6% silicium. After a sophisticated hardening process at 1040°C and an annealing temperature of 160°C the blades achieve a hardness of RC 56. * The woodsaw, scissors and nail files have a hardness of RC 53, the screwdriver, tin opener and awl a hardness of RC 52, and the corkscrew and springs RC 49. * The metal saw and file, in addition to the special case hardening, are also subjected to a hard chromium plating process so that iron and steel can also be filed und cut. * The separators have been made from aluminium alloy since 1951. This makes the knife lighter and easier to carry in one\'s pocket. Formerly these separating layers were made of nickel-silver.
