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).
