Need help ID'ing a couple of older Victorinox

Post by knifeaholic » Tue Sep 14, 2021 11:07 am

These two are each 84mm with a similar blade configuration, with the exception that one of them adds the long file on the bottom.

From SAK Wiki, the closest match I found was a discontinued 84mm "Golfer", but as shown there it has the combo tool (bottle opener/screwdriver) rather than the small blade that these have.

Any ideas as to what to call this model, and when they were discontinued?

Thanks

I can't help, but you might try here: multitool.org.
They have a SAK forum.

Yes, not the one I have, but yours is an unusual and interesting pattern.

The top knife is very nice and very hard to find ... it's a long nail file golfer from the 1950's ish

The Sakwiki does normally say that before the combo tool was introduced in in 1982 most knives had a small clip point blade instead (doesn't really effect the model)

It would be model 207k based on the 1942 catalog page 36 borrowed from sakwiki great looking catalog

Congratulations on finding one in excellent condition

the bottom knife is a normal non long nail file golfer still a nice knife
