Very very cool knife!!

Here`s another 100 mm, vintage victorinox.





This one is not that old. Not seen many 100 mm officer knives. No idea why they produced such an uncommon, rare line...

I don't suppose this thread can be deleted ...... its depressing me ..... ;)

Not sure why I added the 'Winking Thing' I was much happier in my ignorance of this knives existence.

But now I guess I have a new grail knife  :)

Nowhere near as cool but my "Odd size" knife is a soldier from I guess around the same time measuring in at 95mm

please link on this ebay seller?

:rant:

You wouldn't be able to get any more info on the SAK from the listing, and some like to keep their privacy as anyone reading here could backtrack their bids/feedback to their account and future listings, purchases, ...

Another very interesting knife. Don't recall seeing another Victorinox with bolsters on both ends.  :think:

Very nice. Any pictures of the bottom? Looks like it could be made from the same springs. I've never seen a Victorinox like that, either. It doesn't look like it has the right shape to be a 2/5 or anything from the "fractional" series. Doesn't look like a 200 or a 300 series knife either.

Last pictures - someone asked about the scissors in this. They are not the 91mm scissors, but 100mm specific scissors, scales up from their 91mm counterparts appropriately. Here's a comparison with vintage 91mm and 84mm:

Wow - Missed this post earlier but caught it via a link in another post from Detron - Thanks mate.

Hey Jazzbass - As a new SAK collector (started last year)  I love the older stuff too
- But I get excited when I find something pre 60s or even pre 70s.
You take it to whole other level

Thanks for sharing this - Lovely find and very interesting - and yep the oddities are even more fascinating.
Love your theories on all the model/production whys and wherefores - (eg Hans and Friedrich on the production line :) )  It all seems very plausible to me.

Nice one

And as many of us have said before - Can't wait for the book!!

Thanks, jazzbass! Threads like these are one of the big reasons why I follow this forum. I have a few people who I can talk about knives with, but not SAKs on this level.  :salute:

Nope, dead for me too.

jazzbass must have been moving pictures to other locations/folders.
