Anyone Have Any Info On This Stag Handled Multi Tool?
« on: April 29, 2020, 11:34:59 PM »
I thought this was a pretty interesting multi tool. The main blade is marked Hoffritz. I’ve never seen one from the factory with stag handles. Supposed to be from the 1980’s.

What would be a guess as to value in unused condition?

It's a Victorinox SWISSCHAMP model number 1.6791.66.

Also moved this to the swiss forum.

That’s an earlier Champion, not Swiss Champ.

Thank you for the move. I was unsure where to post it.

Maybe the scales are add ons?

No it’s genuine. Victorinox made “luxury” versions of the Champion with stag horn. It looks like model 1.5793: 1973 - 1986. One of the Hoffritz experts will need to comment further.

Thanks for that! I was just wondering as I have a chance to buy it for $125.00 but I thought that was too much money.

It’s a good opportunity if you collect SAKs.  :tu:

Interesting find!

It’s not technically a Champion either. Hoffritz versions were called ‘Super Knife’...or at least when they were in cellidor handles.

It looks like it has c. ‘83 main line parts, but I believe Hoffritz knives could get older parts during this time frame and could be a bit later. 

I’d say it’s probably worth $125. Maybe more if sold at auction by a reputable seller and better pictures. Could fetch much lower if poorly listed. 

Please follow up with more pics if you buy it!

Thank you for all the replies gentlemen and especially to you kamakiri for that informative information! I went ahead and bought it for $110.00. Being that’s it’s unused, I thought I should go for it as it’s so unusual especially with the stag scales which I really like.

The pictures I posted here were from the seller. Here’s one more from him also. It’s in the mail so if you want more, I’ll take more when it arrives.

That's a sweet find!
I'd chuck up 110 for that if one crossed my path. No doubt! (Locally! Adding shipping and fees would make that deal, like usual, a pain :D )

Thanks folks! The $110.00 included expedited shipping so I thought it was fair. When I receive it, I’ll post more pictures.

   That is one fine looking SAK! I love any knife with stag handles. I think you got a really great deal on that, especially considering it looks in primo condition. I would have paid that for it, maybe even a bit more. Unfortunately, I will not be buying any more fun toys until this virus crap is over with!   :( >:(
