That sure is a beauty!  My '83 has the groove just like yours.  I'm no expert, but I'd say yours is a pre-1986 from the groove.  The main blade should have VICTORINOX all in one font too. Love that box!!

I take it back about the groove on my '83... it's clearly there.  I don't know which knife of mine has a faint groove  :facepalm:

I probably need to get some more photos of my only Huntsman but here it is again...

Huntsman - Silver Tech by NorCal Jim, on Flickr

I just love the SilverTech scales!

Jim,

The Silvertech scales are really nice, no doubt. Now, I hate to have to be the one to break this to you, but you will need to get another Huntsman with darker scales. You see, that Silvertech Huntsman would just be too easy to lose in all this snow.....



(We've gotten about 10" of snow over the past 3 days. You guys down South get any?)

No snow here...it's been almost 30 years since I have been to see the snow. :)

This is my 3rd SilverTech.  I had forgotten about my SilverTech Explorer and I had recently purchased a new SilverTech Spartan from Amazon.

I had looked at a few Huntsman, including this morning when I spotted a BSA Huntsman but it was in so-so condition.

For me, the Huntsman is the Iconic Swiss Army Knife.

It may be that other SAK's are more popular (Classic) or more historic (Soldier), but the Huntsman with it's collection of classic SAK tools (scissors, saw, corkscrew) becomes the iconic SAK. And for good reason, what a great knife.....

Might look at its best ... but I'd worry I'd never find it if I dropped it ... so it's not camo for me :salute:

I know, I learned that the hard way. My camo Fireman worked its way out of my pocket more than once; fortunately I noticed soon enough and found it again. I solved the problem by adding an orange lanyard, and using a zippered pocket.

Four layer Friday Huntsman continues to Spartan Saturday as I'll be away and may need extras, the saw I highly doubt, but that's why we prep ....

Hmmm. Does my Aquatic Huntsman (with extra layer and containing fish scaler and chisel) qualify?



I'd not mind either way; if the mod (and Swiss Champ origin) disqualifies the knife, you may keep the pic :D

Hope the Fire Fly kickstart is ready to go, would be great in a Huntsman toothpick slot, strike it with the back edge of the saw...

Not sure how I missed this thread.
The Huntsman (small 84mm) is the most expensive SAK I've ever purchased.  I had to pay dearly since it was mint in box.
