I would agree on the late 40's and Gourmet but 91mm ....  main blade stamped Armee Suisse and inoxd with crossbow.small blade is a clip point.

Nice little thing :)

I believe it is the bicycle chain breaker (comes on on the 2-3 Bicycle Wenger models, Like Biker, Mountain Bike, etc.).

Man, I've got to pay a visit to some Swiss flea markets before you people pick out all the good stuff :o

Then, I'll head off to the Alps to get me some fresh air and some cheese fondue with white wine in it and spend half an eternity there fondling my preciouses:

I've so far combined my "real" collections to 91mm and 84mm Victorinox. 93mm semi-seriously. If I had to start another collection it'd be 108mm. I've had a few (since sold) and I just really, really like the feel of them. AFAIK, the Fireman and the Walther are the two hardest to find - so you're half way there on the tough ones.

The Stag Hunter with genuine stag handles is also pretty rare. And SwissBianco early on did a small run of special Safaris with clip, spear, and gutting blades.

And if I'm reading this correctly, jaydar already sold one of the rarest ones, the Zürich Fireman with bail so he'll have to find that one again. Not that many variations in the 108mm range but still an interesting hunt. :salute:

True I am starting again from scratch (well Mauser and Fireman and a few Safari types but almost scratch :) ) .... I will just have to go to lots more Flea markets around Zurich :)
