Victorinox (Victoria) stag horn Camper

Here is another Camper with stag horn scales. It’s a bit older than the stag horn Camper I posted before. This one has three exposed rivets instead of two. The middle pin is less oxidized than the outer (brass) ones so I guess it’s made of nickel silver.

Other nice features of this knife are the old, triangular awl (slightly bent unfortunately), five turn grooved corkscrew, old style wood saw, clip point small blade, sharpened bottle opener, +PAT can opener and Victoria tang stamp.

Sadly the wood saw back spring is broken which does sometimes happen with these old knives. Overall it’s in fair condition.

Vintage, horn scaled 84mm SAKs

Two nice vintage items. Both with horn scales and in 84mm.

The older one (stamped Inoxyd/Armée Suisse) has the pre-1940s opener layer, the old style reamer and brass liners. It has a taper towards the end, with the blade layer being quite a bit thicker near the small clip point blade pivot. This is a beautiful vintage knife in great condition. The only flaw is the missing tips on both blades.

The other one is marked Victoria and is probably from the late 1960s or early 1970s. It has a +PAT opener and small clip point blade. The liners appear to be alox.

Victorinox (Victoria) Climber Small

The very popular Climber model was once available in a slightly smaller 84mm version. This is a Victoria version with a five turn corkscrew, a +PAT can opener, the old style scissors (spring is broken) and a small clip point blade. Unfortunately, Victorinox stopped producing 84mm knives with scissors a couple of years ago.

It’s a terrible picture but that’s OK since it matches this Climber’s pretty bad condition ;)
