Victorinox day
« on: October 02, 2013, 10:30:56 PM »
My wife and I ended up at a few thrift shops and one pawn shop today and found the following:



The prices were very low and I couldn't resist.  The steak knife and the small alox folder need some work but will still make decent knives.  The one with scissors, two blades etc. is in great shape and the locking blade one is good but very tight.

I believe that the small two blade alox is a "secretary" and the one with scissors is an older "climber" but can't find what the locking blade one is.  If anyone has an idea I would like to know.

The locking blade knife (the blade itself is good but all other tools are not) is very very stiff.  I've cleaned it and sprayed it with wd40 - any other ideas?

Thanks,

John.

Your locking knife looks like a Picnicker:

If the knife's very stiff, it probably needs a good clean, just a lot of gunk between springs, pivots, and stuff like that. You could try popping the scales off, and running it through the dishwasher ;)

Thanks for the info and model Cupboard.  Bmot - I've been working some very light oil into it and it seems to be getting better.

I did notice that the corkscrew on the climber has a groove (split) near the base - photo below.



Is this a feature or flaw?

Thanks,

John.

They used to be made this way.  Some say the groove gave a better grip on the cork. ?
