If you view the page with the detail view (mag icon) you should be able to zoom in more than enough.

If you're doing that and you really need more, I'll try to attach a even larger image to this message, not sure if it will be too big to be allowed.

Thanks, that worked. Interesting to see the largest (King arthur) has the fish second from the bottom, while the other two have the hunter in that location.

OK Great.  I'll post some higher-res pics to the wiki linked to the Dynasty series page.

What I find interesting also is that on the page 3 there seems to by a typo in one of the models numbers, but more interestingly is it also contradicts the information from other brochures on the model number that was later used for the Lancelot, by saying that number should not have the etching.

Interesting, thanks.
I finally found in your catalog one reference I was looking for.
The model "Rockies" (16986), which the '79 catalog shows with nail file,

was also made with small blade

as in my example.

Nice!  I like that model!

I was happy to see the Rockies name, but now I need to find another SAK.

I listed it two times on EDCSource, since I have two, but there was no interest at all.
The above picture is the one I used for the listing.

I've not been buying for a couple of months and I never remember to check EDCsource or the sale-form here without a post in the swiss forum with an alert.  Seems like a very nice knife to me.

The problem is they also used that same model number for one called the Deluxe Backpacker. Maybe that's why the Rockies name didn't seem to last too long.

NOTE:  Additional information from Precise has dated this catalog to January 1982.  They may have used it for all or part of 1983 as well.
