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?
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).
This “Jussi” Ranger features an authentic design on both front and back scales. It resembles a specific type of traditional Finnish sweater/jumper.
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 :)
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 ).
