“SAK” I’d never seen before

Post by Kniferosity57 » Mon Nov 23, 2020 12:37 am

I found this “Swiss Army Knife” yesterday for a pittance at a local flea market. It seems an identical copy of a Victorinox SAK but is from Germany. ISC Germany on the tang. It is very well made and is just as nice as a Victorinox. I have a few “SAK” style knives from England, Japan, Spain, China, and the USA, but this is the first from Germany. Any idea of the story behind it?

Adler for Schrade (Imperial Schrade Cutlery or ISC) in the 1990s. They called it the "Century" series, and named the models off of various NASA spacecraft. I haven't gotten myself one yet, but your assessment about the quality is spot-on, they are every bit as good as Victorinox and Wenger.
