My past time is browsing the various listings looking for interesting victorinox models.And I think I hit a jackpot! These two were part of a 10-knife lot that looked bad (but actually better in person) it even had a 91mm w/ chipped scale - which I think put off some casual ebayers.I took a chance after seeing a slightly smaller vic very similar to a golfer (only the scissor was opened).So I was really just expecting a golfer... But was really surprised to see an 84mm Climber!!! I've roughly dated the climber to be atleast before 1973 due to the clip point small blade. But the "+ PAT" shows it can be an earlier model.

You can easily spot a LNF on a Victorinox knife. When the Large Blade and Scissor open from the same side, then it is a LNF knife.Of course it's a bit risky when you don't see the back side. Often Long Nail Files are broken, or the liners are corroded. Restoring such a knife is quite tricky, but not impossible. If the LNF is broken, or the backspring, then a Restoration is impossible without spare parts.However, I got two wrong listed 84mm knifes with LNF that way. And I'm quite happy about it (spending 1/3rd - 1/4th of the costs of a correctly listed knife at the bay).
