Re the Victorinox page I transferred the new temp page to the old one - So that is updated now
It looks great now!  :like:

Nick you discovered a shocker of a page with the Wenger LH tools page  >:D  - I had to attack that page  :whistle:
Proposed new structure here
As for me, it's much better now.  :tu:

One interesting observation about this temp LH page - It's had over 50 hits already -  :o   And it's not in the menu structure and allegedly no-one knew about it apart from me!
I guess that is the way of teh internet
When you create a new page, it appears in the list on the left side of the SAKWiki screen and is visible to all registered users. So I've already followed the link at least twice. ;)

Unfortunately we wont be able to correct the text on the image
Why not? Just download the bigger picture, edit it and upload the corrected version as a smaller picture again (for example, see the attachment).

By the way, in my opinion it is a very good idea to use small images (thumbnails) for some pages in the series, for example, the Wenger Series page. Now big pictures are linked there, and it makes the page loading too long.

Thanks Huntsman, you are so kind.  :hatsoff:

Page updated with Commander corrections and new pic!
:like:

Meanwhile, I replaced  full-sized images links on the Wenger Series and Special Editions page with thumbnails links, if you do not mind.

(And we probably need a few more pages for the Wenger SAKs series -- not all series are listed there.)

Hello guys. I have detected some missing info at SakWiki over the last couple of years, and was told by Nikola that this is the channel to share my findings. Here I go with the first one, from a little list of some 5-6.

There is an extra type of Victorinox pliers, to be identified between types 2 and 3 at this SakWiki page: https://www.sakwiki.com/tiki-index.php?page=Pliers

It is, "Type 2" (1987-1995) BUT with the groove for the spring added.

I have pictures to prove this fact but, unfortunately, I am not able to upload them, for some reason (the size is not a matter because the files were converted to 614 x 406.

Just a quick remark for the 111mm Sentinel page:

0.8416.M3: OH, non-serrated, with pocket clip (54885)

‘All Black’ version, available in 2010: black-oxide coated blade, liners, spring, keyring, and clip


I've found another black oxide limited run: the "black série" with black-oxide coated serrated blade, liners, spring, keyring but NO clip. The réf. is 0.8413.MILI and it comes with a soft kaki leather pouch which can be fitted horizontally ou vertically

Same design and pouch for the trailmaster of the 'black série": Réf. 0.8463.MILI




I've got the two knifes if needed

I had a crack at the pliers page update.

I called this new version 2a - to fit in with the existing picture - And guessed the groove came at the same time as the scissors groove.

Please feel free to update / do it another way ..... But we might need a new four generation pic?    :think:

The page did not mention the groove at all originally
- A few years ago I noticed that older pliers did not have it and newer ones did - So I updated the page with the groove and again guessed it came when the crimpers were added
So it is really great to get this corrected and another version in the Wiki    :salute:

Thanks  MexSAK   :D


Nick - I though you said you were busy WRL at the mo  :think:  ...... You've been going nuts in the Wiki - I guess the contract ended?  ???

Hi Team,

I just modified the Knife Entry Template a little bit (codes  "clearfix", "BOX"  and the section sorting were affected) to make new pages more uniform with already existing ones, if you do not mind.

If I was wrong please feel free to undo the changes.  :cheers:

Good work on the addition.

Could somebody fix the dates?

The end date for the first 2.5mm version is at least ‘87 in regular production, maybe even ‘88, but the actual end is for the ‘91 Rütli battle series.

I also doubt the 1985 start in favor of ‘86, but not a big deal to me. Notice how no Champs or pliers models are in any of the 1985 catalogs or dated price lists.

Hello KK,
Are you saying that the original pliers version was on the Rutli?   ??? ........ Very interesting - Never knew that    ::)

I made the changes you suggested ..... I think!    ...... Please check it out     :think:

https://sakwiki.com/tiki-index.php?page=Pliers

Yes I noted the 85/86 variation in some of the SC dates.
I guess it's a variation between announcement and availability date and also possibly availability in different markets

Also catalogues can be somewhat misleading - For instance the 'current' catalogue on the Vic website is 2017!!

Thanks for the info

Hey Knights and Scribes of the Knight's Almanac,

I added some comments about the digital display back-light to the Traveller page - All good - I hope
However this feature is not explained, at least not in the user guide that came with my Traveller - So also added a comment to this effect.

This query/observation came up in a recent FB discussion

Can anyone else verify the 'missing from the manual' comment  - Please update/correct etc etc  if necessary
And does anyone know about the other models ? Voyager, Altimeter etc

 :cheers: Thanks for making the updates Huntsman!  I think the 85/86 notation works well enough. I use that type of notation when I’m not certain for myself.

And the Rütli page clearly shows the 2.5mm/v.1 pliers. It’s that way on mine too. And unlike all the other Battle Series, being the last one out, I suspect the ones in the presentation boxes are the same as those released in the complete set. Some of which have very different parts when compared to the earlier releases of the same model.

The interesting thing to me is that it proves how Victorinox has kept discontinued parts in large quantities around for a while...and how they could ‘dispose’ of them when they eventually wanted to.

Thanks again for making the changes.

Comparison photos of SwissCards Gen.1 & Gen.2 (both all solid black). Older one (one of first ones with older product number) is at the top (or on the left in last two photos). The biggest differences are the box itself, (inner cover page, inscription above the card and the back cover along with different PN), and markings on the sliding door. There are a few other "invisible" differences in Cards, like protractor in Gen.2 but also the markings on how to properly insert the scissors in the card (visible only when scissors are taken out, also in Gen.2).
