Victorinox Director with one exposed rivet

This 74mm Swiss Army knife is rather special IMHO, never seen one of these before. It’s a Director with the “Feathers” guilloché pattern. But apart from the engraving panel on one of the scales (a bit uncommon in itself), this one has one exposed rivet: the pin holding the non-floating spring (pin nr. 7 in this image) is exposed.

It’s a rather old Director, with Victoria tang stamp and single leaf scissor spring, and the orange peeler blade has no serrations.

Since this is the only one with an exposed rivet I’ve ever seen, I’m starting to think that maybe this knife was once repaired?

Various 93mm alox SAKs

I mainly collect 74mm and 91mm SAKs, but somehow I now own more 93mm alox SAKs than I thought I would. I have bought and sold/traded several more in the past (including a 2010 Damascus Pioneer, colored Classics, Farmers and Cadets, and of course a million Dutch Army Knives), and there is a mint old cross Pioneer in a sealed display case that is not in the picture.

I’m not an expert on 93mm SAKs but these are: green Farmer, black Pioneer with red shield, Swiss Bianco (+B) Pioneer in Apocalypse Green, +B gold First Mate, Syph007 custom HA black Pioneer with scissors, pocket clip, red anodized liners and Black Oxide tools, Syph007 custom HA matte gray Pioneer with scissors and brass liners and a regular Soldier (08).

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.
