Victorinox Tinkers – digital camo

It’s been a while :)

These Tinkers just arrived. I like the brightly colored scales with their digital camo prints in white, blue and blaze orange. The orange ones are my personal favorites of course (tomorrow is King’s day in The Netherlands, the whole country will be turning orange!).

Fun fact: the blaze orange scales are actually white scales painted orange. The blue ones are in fact blue.

Victorinox Apocalypse Green Pioneer (Swiss Bianco)

This is a Victorinox Pioneer with alox scales in Apocalypse Green. It’s a lovely shade of green, very bright. It was part of a special run for Swiss Bianco consisting of several standard and non-standard (e.g. Sea Rancher) alox models.

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?
