Most things are already mentioned.

I would say: the mainblade is original from Victorinox, the rest not. The mainblade seems to be the only part that is inox steel. Victorinox did not produce such knives, at least I dont know of any. The knife seems to be much older that the mainblade.

It could have happened that way: mainblade got broken on the 1930s, the owner brought it to a knifemaker, who repaired the knife as good as he could and used spareparts that were available. That was very normal those days. The owner of the knife was happy, he had his loved knife back with an upgraded inox steel mainblade.

Your analysis is very reasonable.However, I feel that this main blade is not quite the same as the other 91mm main blades, especially the shape of the root. I do not seem to have a sample of the 91mm main blade from the 1930s, so I cannot make an accurate comparison. :cheers:

I found another picture of a SAK that is not in the Vic catalog. It seems that several tools are made by Vick. What kind of situation does this knife belong to?

This knife is too beautiful! Is this also a blade exchange product? What is the reason for the blade swap? At that time, Vic also made knives by hand. Could it be customized according to customers' requirements?
I think these two knives are not "blade swap product". We have no Elsener catalogs from 1910s-1930s period and they can made this model that time. Of course we need more these knives to be sure.

The shape of your knife is different. Victorinox produced 2 lines of s-shaped knives, the Nr 1230 serie and the Nr 1240 series, 79 mm and 84 mm. The one shown from an auction is a nr 1239 or nr 1249.

Wow, what catalog is this? I've never seen such a picture about SAK. It's so sexy! I would appreciate it if you could share it with me.  :salute: BTW,the length of my knife is 88 mm :climber:

Nice ones guys!

If my 100 yr old Spartan style has a  Vic emblem but I'm told it's a Pradel (French?), then they stole emblems years ago too?
I asked this awhile ago but honestly forgot your answers!  :think:
