SAKs and Swiss knives, true hobby and real knives

23.06.2021 I got this beautiful 85mm Wenger SAK in the mail today. This model is the number 512. It is probably a 1965-1972 type construction. It looks like late 1960s to me. Older corkscrew with decoration groove, old nail file cleaner, old scissors. Wenger had many hand operations back then. The condition is super nice with strong springs and precision. Wenger used a different method for attaching the scales at this time with only one visible area(inside). This model is interesting because there is no awl on it. There are design features on the springs and assembly that can be extra interesting. The date is only for now. BR 13:02 I can also mention a thicker blade on this from the tang towards the tip. Wenger used a few different types depending on models. On some SAKs the blade could be thinner to fit other functions for example. This 512 blade is probably from the older production.

15.06.2021 Beautiful color Fomitopsis pinicola with guttation drops today.
A completey fresh and new Victorinox Hunter XT with me today for the joy of being on the water and use the body some. This knife is for sure very good for hunting. It is a formidable safety knife too.
On my way home i found this Polypore on the remains of a birch the beaver took. They are all over the wood on all sides. I believe it is Ganoderma applanatum without the spores. Really cool growing over water in the shade. Closer in there are some very flat ones. I will see...............15.06.2021 Yes it seems like this is artist conk...I will check from time to time for the interest.
There is a good amount of mackerels out now. This is a few days ago in a boat. I have used my kayak too for joy. I use two river outlets to get into the sea, I switch between them. I like to stay around the smaller islands. I always have a safety knife, an MT and pocket knives with me. Kayak gives good exercise. You can increase strength, endurance and explosive abilities. Best is the joy with the outdoors but for sure the reward after is welcome. I have really tested safety knives for different situations, fishing and more.
SAKs:) together
