Thanks, but I cannot tell from these pictures. The kind of pictures from which one can usually tell are pictures of the back of the SAK that are taken with a cellular phone using the flash (at some mild angle). The point is that non-anodized liners are mirror-like and reflect light only in certain directions, whereas anodized liners scatter light in all directions. Hence, the very directional light from the cell phone led flash lets you see the difference. I attach an image of the back of a cybertool 29 showing this effect. The cybertool 29 is special in that it has two different liners touching each other (the anodized one and the thick one right next to it). You can see that the non-anodized liners reflect light similarly to the springs separated by them, whereas the anodized liner looks very different.

Like this?
To me the liners aren't anodized.

That's just plain cool!  How will you resist using it as your everyday picnic knife?

Two SMICO "Hiker" SAKs, one with "Economy" tang and the other with "Elinox."  It's interesting to note that the corkscrew on the Elinox knife is smooth.  This is correct for this vintage, as Jazzbass pointed out in this thread:   https://forum.multitool.org/index.php?topic=63268.0

Looked like this thread could do with a bump

Very fond of the nylon scales found on the ecoline and 111’s SAKs :tu:

This thread definitely needed a bump. And it needs more blue.

I didn't know economy scales ever came in blue! :like:
USN 2000-2006

One to four layers of SAK is (usually) best for me.

If you have absolutely nothing better to do, my YouTube channel is awlways an option:

I found a Waiter with blue nylon advertising scales and no Victorinox logo. Sanding the ad off means the scales no longer match each other. I learned my lesson from that, but bought this black Tourist from a listing with poor photos and didn't realize the scales were nylon until it arrived.

I’d been wondering if you could discretely remove logos from the nylon scales in the way you can with cellidor :think: so not a good result then prol? Good to know

:cheers:

The nylon can be sanded smooth by hand, but then you're left with obvious texture wherever you don't sand. I did the entire back scale so as not to have a ghost of the advertisement, so now one scale is smooth and the other textured.
