Victorinox Tinker and Climber with Mossy Oak New Break-Up camo scales

Look closely or you may not see them :)
These two SAKs feature a rather cool camo pattern made by Mossy Oak. It’s called New Break-Up and each knife uses a different/random part of the whole camo image.

The scales feel a bit like paper, I have no idea what material they are made out of and what kind of printing technique is used. They may or may not be cellidor or nylon. The Victorinox emblem is not a metal inlay but is printed in silver ink instead.

Victorinox Tourist with horn scales

This is a Victorinox Tourist, which is basically a smaller (84mm) version of the Spartan, in this case without key ring. It has horn scales and the tweezers have an aluminium handle but I think that’s not the original one since this knife is newer.

I bought this knife hoping it was 91mm, but since it is not (and in rather poor condition as well) I may put it up for sale/trade later.

Victorinox Spartan – Schloss Neuschwanstein

This is my third Swiss Army Knife made for KulturGut AG, related to my Bavarian Palace Department Spartan and Bayerischen Schlösserverwaltung Huntsman. It has the same laser etching on the blade.

This Spartan has a picture of Neuschwanstein Castle on the front and some text, a blue banner and a gold Victorinox shield on the back scale. Funny thing about that shield and cross is that it’s smaller than usual and placed differently. But I forgot to take a picture of it. Instead, you can just take a look on the Kulturgut AG website where you can also order this knife (and others).

I usually only buy souvenir knives at the actual place but I just like these ones so much that I had to have them. I guess I should plan a trip to Neuschwanstein Castle to make up for it :)

 

 

Victorinox soft grip Tinker “Wabenmuster”

Here’s a nice Victorinox Tinker. It has special soft grip scales with a Wabenmuster (honeycomb) design in black/gray. I think the scales are actually cellidor with some kind of rubbery coating. Victorinox introduced the soft grip scales in 2009 with the Climber Road Tour. I think this Tinker, along with a ruby soft grip Spartan, was introduced a year later.

I believe this knife was also known as Geotec or Geotech Tinker.

Edit: white balance is off. It appears to be blue which it isn’t :)
