Years ago I spotted an olive green Money Clip with Eddie Bauer logo somewhere online, possibly on SAKWiki. I never found one for sale so eventually I stopped searching. But a while back, after having been on a “SAK Break” for a few months, I stumbled upon one by accident. They are pretty uncommon so I’m pretty happy with this one. It’s a nice shade of green.
One step closer to a complete collection of all 74mm scale colors and variations.
The Executive is one of my favorite models. It’s small enough to be used as a key chain knife yet large enough to be actually useful (I think the 58mm SAKs are a bit too small although I’ve EDC’d a brass Rambler for months now). It also has a funky tool config with the weird orange peeler that has never been used on any other model.
They are usually black or red. Other colors exist but without a company logo those are uncommon. So I was pretty lucky when I found a yellow one in mint condition:
My other yellow Executive is this cheesy one.
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?
This is a rather fancy Victorinox Ambassador with diamond cut gold plated scales. I already had one of these in fair condition, but this one is actually brand new. It has an embossed Swiss shield on the front, no scale tools and no keyring.
This luxury model (0.6500.88) came in a nice burgundy gift box.
This is a Victorinox Windsor with the UBS logo. The three keys were also used for the logo of the SBC (Swiss Bank Corporation). The merger forming UBS took place in 1998 and this knife may or may not be older than that. A different variation of this knife exists with 1872 added to the logo which makes that one an SBC knife. So I’ll call mine a UBS Windsor.
It’s a terrible photo, but a pretty nice little knife. I usually don’t like SAKs with company logos, but for this one I can make an exception (hey, that’s the millionth time I make such an exception :D ).
