Has anyone heard of a Victorinox SAK from the princess series with mother of pearl scales?  I just bought one and would like to know if the scales are after market improvement, or did the Princess come from Victorinox with mother of pearl scales.

The knife in the picture is not a Princess, it's a Classic without toothpick, tweezers, or keyring. So technically a Bijou without toothpick and tweezers, but Victorinox would have just called it a Classic... if it's old enough they would have referred to it by its number.

I'd say it's an official MOP Classic (99%), but the picture is not high enough quality to say for sure.

Hi cdv, welcome to the club!

Victorinox has done a number of knives in various sizes with mother-of-pearl handles. The names I have for the 58mm are Bijou (no key ring) and Classic (with key ring)(same names as their standard versions). The 74mm is Consul/Ambassador.

The only Princess I have a record of is a 58mm two blade model with plastic handles.

Small Victorinox mother-of-pearl.

Thanks for the prompt reply.  I did some research on the SAKWiki and found the knife was a Victorinox Bijou.  The knife does not have the keyring nor the tweezers nor the toothpick.
