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 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 ).
I don’t really collect Swiss Army knives with company logos, but this Formspeed Windsor has a guilloché pattern that had never seen before. It looks rather nice with the wavy lines and Swiss cross.
Updated collection, with a couple nice items still on their way to me :)
Edit: 74mm SAK no. 50 arrived today: a blue/green alox Escort :)
