I recently got a 91mm Golfer.  I took some side-by-side photos for comparison:

Why doesn't Victorinox make the "Compact" in 84 mm?  For the pen maybe?

The 84mm Golfer is essentially the 91mm Compact counterpart in that size, sans the pen like you say. They don't make it because 84mm scissors are no longer in production. A fact that is often lamented amongst SAK addicts.

I love the 84mm Compact. Makes a great combo with a Juice KF4 (despite the Juice's failings)

Here`s another really old 91 mm golfer to compare.









Very special nailfile on the back.

This model changed a lot over the past 100 years. At the beginning, there was maybe only the 91 mm version available. The Nr. 207 of the 1903 catalog shows this knife, but with a standard reamer, not a nailfile on the back. In 1942, there was also a 84 mm version available, named 207 k (k = klein (small)), with a long nailfile on the back. Later, they dropped the production of the 91 mm version what I`ve heard and only the 84 mm golfer was produced. Now, they changed the production from 84 mm to the 91 mm compact. Now the nailfile on the back on the multipurpose hook looks almost like the very old version of the knife on the pictures above.
I don`t know the reason why they changed this knife that many times, the size but also the tools, leading back to the version of the early beginning. There must be always a good reason to change a knife, because that means a huge adaptation for the production. Maybe the last change was because of the scissors. When the 58 mm knives becoming popular, there was no need for small scissors on the 84 mm knives...

So the 84mm golfer doesn't have a key ring?
