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.

Yes! Thanks!  :hatsoff: It looks like you have a real EcoLine Handyman (no anodized liners). Very cool!  :tu:

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
