Do we need a photo of an old cross Solo Alox? I have one that's not beaten up. Or is it better not to clutter the page?

Red or sliver ?  Not that it matters to the Wiki page ;)

Sure - You could replace the stock photo at the top of the page

Or maybe move the bottom photo up a bit and pop it under there

We do like to keep images away from the heavy text areas - ie usually the History and Variations - as is the case here - and put images into white space.

Or you could just put it in as a link on the page somewhere .......  So many options  :)

This is the command to do that
[tiki-browse_image.php?imageId=1234|image name]

Thanks for your help

Some intels for the wiki:

- It seems that some version of the cybertool bit driver have a hole, visible on some XLT version (old version with grey magnifier?)

pics here: https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,90188.msg2383271.html#msg2383271

- The sentinal appeared as a belgian army version with the 0.8413.3M3BE ref

My 1950s/60s fisherman. From what I've read here it seems it's from somewhere between 1954 and 1961. I believe it's model 135faU.
It's been in the family from new, my father bought it for my much older brother when he was young and then he gave it back to my father who ended giving it to me.

The following helped me date it:

  • Philips screwdriver (Backspring), square, file, no can-key - (1952-?)
  • Fish Scaler with magnetic tip, no ruler - (1952-1975?)
  • Simple reamer - pre-1961
  • Shackle - (1902-1968)
  • no exposed rivets (apart from shackle), at least after 1954 as one of the catalogs from 1954 still shows exposed rivets.

 I've seen the year when exposed rivets went away somewhere but can't find it anymore. Does anyone know? That would help narrow it down further.

I doesn't have the fish inlay, as seen in some 50s catalogs it seems the early models didn't have it.

One thing that doesn't add up from this page http://victorinox.metodi.me/91mmtools.php is the can opener, mine doesn't have the PAT logo which would according to the page make it a post 1980 model. I know this knife is in its original state and has never had anything repaired or replaced apart from the tweezers. It's also currently missing the single scissor spring and the shackle is all bent out of shape and disconnected from one of the rivets.

Glad to see you here. And to see the actual SAK in question. :tu:

Hopefully some of our more experienced SAK historians can narrow down the production year.

As promised... I didn't include some info/descriptions of already known things...

Survival-Kits / SOS-Sets info:

Kit A 1985 - 2000 (from 1991 named Small SOS Kit/Set):
-   1.8810 (US 5600 & 53511)
Single black leather pouch 4.0567(.03) and SwissChamp red 1.6795
-   1.8810.3 (US 5602 & 53513)
Single black leather pouch 4.0567(.03) and SwissChamp black 1.6795.3
-   1.8810.4 (or 1.8810.04) 1985 - 1996
Single olive nylon pouch 4.0567.04 and SwissChamp red 1.6795

Kit B until circa 1991 (Deluxe SOS Kit)
-   1.8812 (US 5603)
Single slightly larger black leather pouch 4.0558.03 and SwissChamp red 1.6795
-   1.8812.4 (or 1.8812.04)
Single slightly larger olive nylon pouch 4.0558.04 and SwissChamp red 1.6795

Kit C from circa 1991 (Large/Big /Deluxe Survival Kit)
-   1.8812 (US 53521)
Double black leather pouch 4.0568.03 and SwissChamp red 1.6795
-   1.8812.3
Double black leather pouch 4.0568.03 and SwissChamp black 1.6795.3
-   1.8812.04 1991 - 1996
Double olive nylon pouch 4.0568.04 and SwissChamp red 1.6795

Kit D (or C plus) 1991 - 2003 (Large/Big /Deluxe SOS Kit with watch)
-   1.8816
Double black leather pouch 4.0568.03 and SwissChamp SuperTimer red 1.6796
-   1.8816.3
Double black leather pouch 4.0568.03 and SwissChamp SuperTimer black 1.6796.3
-   1.8816.04
Double olive nylon pouch 4.0568.04 and SwissChamp SuperTimer red 1.6796


Most of the info is from “SAMMLER- UND SONDEREDITIONEN“ by Victorinox and available Victorinox catalogs.

I found different product numbers for US market (4 digit are older) but I'm not sure when the change occured (I guess around 1991). Different names (Big/Large/Deluxe) were used in different markets for Kit C (German: Grosses)

They had three main "combinations" of SwissChamps and pouches: red SC in black leather pouch, black SC in black leather pouch and red SC in olive nylon pouch, but some other may have existed in different markets. Also, some Kits (pouch and accessories) were sold separately from the SwissChamp so a customer could put any SAK other than a SC or a SC in different colour.

Earlier leather pouches had loops on side pockets instead of Velcro and didn’t have “.03” extension on pouch number at the back. Number marking olive nylon pouch was changed from “.4” to “.04” probably to avoid confusion from “.X” being used for SC scale colour.

I hope you'll find this useful!  :cheers:

Great stuff Nele and thanks for all your research    :salute:

I have moved the SOS info from the SC page to the SOS page and added your info as a section below.
The SOS page was already marked as under development - So that comment can stay

The page is WIP and we can consolidate the sections - and add pictures etc - as and when
But at least we don't have an empty page anymore - and all the info we know is in the one place

Brilliant     :D    :D    :D

If Vic "continues to discontinue" models the way they started, I'll be able to put all of they models in one single poster...  :think:

Yes

I think we should leave the posters as is - As they are really great and most are dated - eg Current SAKs as at 2020
We can add comments (if necessary) to those sections and make it clear that users can refer to the lists (above) to check which are current/dicontinued

Just MHO!!    :think:    What do other people think?   ???

Hey Guys,

I received a PM from a newish member notifying me of an error in the Wiki - He kindly sent a PM rather than posting it here.
But I had to tell you all about it as it is so funny ........


Hello,

I don't know if you are the right address for this. I don't want to be a grammar nazi, but in the WIKI page is written 'asterix'.
I think that is asterisk.

Asterix is the friend of Obelix in the comics  ;)

BR,
****

So correcting me in my native language !!!    :pok:    :o   
This error was on several, but strangely not all, of the alpha list pages (denoting discontinued etc)

So hopefully it is fixed now .......

The only explanation I see is that when I searched Asterix in Google it pushed the advertise for the new movie down in the ad part of the screen.

Google is OK, but it also bombards our minds with all the trash of the internet. I wouldn't mind if it was something usable. But as we see, you search for something by the way and you already receive commercial stuff for it.

Hello,
I have a 7-layer 85mm Wenger that is not listed in the wiki.  It is in between the Monarch and the Colonel.  It could be a Colonel which has the nail file instead of the small clip point blade or it could be a Monarch that has a Corkscrew instead of the Phillips.  I’m new here so pardon any conduct faux pas.  Here is an image of the knife and tools.
 
Regards,
VistaMN

What shall we call it?
I don’t think we’ll have a new page just a variation of one of the others - which should it be?
What does everyone think?

My research leads me to think that this is a

It looks like something between Colonel 1..25.13 (has clip point small blade instead of nail file) and Monarch 1.26.03 (has phillips instead of corkscrew). Not sure if it has a name of its own.

The new SOS page has had quite a bit more work done on it now and it's looking really great.

There's a few other new pages for the Brilliant SDs, the watch strap change tool, the crazy weld seam testing tool and knife
All thanks to Nick4

Looks great on my iPhone except for the table of contents at the top as per picture below. Everything else is working fine and looks really good

I really like the related models with pictures and the page layout, a very interesting SAK

Thanks to Huntsman and all involved for your fine work on SAKWIKI :hatsoff: :tu:

Thanks Max,

Very fitting that the initiator and creator of the page makes the final (???) edit.   :cheers:    :D

I was going to suggest another solution to ET and that is to turn the phone 90° into landscape mode and you don't get the problem    :pok:    ;)
Also I was not too keen on the new format as one of my missions in the Wiki is getting rid of white (grey) space and the image nicely filled the grey space by the toc!

However on reflection I like the conformity to other pages better  :tu:  and of course having a decent smart phone rendering of the page trumps filling a few square cm of grey space   :o

I did have one further thought on the new format - Should we move the picture section to below the variations?
Not a big deal either way is fine - I wont change it - Just throwing out a thought!
