SAKs and Swiss knives, true hobby and real knives

27.07.2021 I am a student of knives and the knife on this picture is called a Fejesgorbe I believe. I would again like to say “tusen hjertelig takk” to my friend in Hungary. He gave me this wonderful knife! I learned many things about handmade knives in Hungary. They make some very nice blades in deed. This knife is handmade by a knife maker called Papp Zoltan with natural materials. There is also nice filework on the backside of the spring. It got strong, smooth and precision functionality for the slip-joint mechanism with spring. 13:32 Ergonomics is a hobby for me and the handle on this knife is very interesting. This is a safe and very comfortable handle. I know they use different steels in Hungary like 4034 for example which is good steel. If this is on this I am not sure yet. They use pocket or folding knives for many tasks and one is eating and food making. This blade is very sharp, long and slim which makes for a very good for such.

Welcome to Trond and 100% good knife philosophy

Welcome to
Hi! I am Trond Ole and i am a collector, researcher and enthusiast about Swiss Army Knives and other Swiss knives. I have had for about 6 years now. I am independent, free and do not represent or work for any Company. Best Regards
27.07.2021 Here you see my latest knives, one is the upper part of the Helle Morgon(this years limited fixed blade) The Buck 112 knife I am very glad for because it is never used and it is from 1991 I believe and this should mean it got the 425M steel. let me know! The other is a Wenger from the mid 1990s and this is also never used. It is probably the Standard series 1.01.00 (on box)
23.07.2021 I am very glad I managed to secure this years Helle knife. This is a Brand and knife I like very much. They are so sharp it is just crazy. On the picture you can see my safety knife I have used this summer in my belt for my Vest. Several years ago I got the interest for safety and looking at the world today it is obvious and clear this is more important than ever before.
17.07.2021 I have used my kayak rather much this summer just for the joy. This is a picture from today. The water temperature is very nice now with some over 20 degrees celsius. There is some wind. The air temperature is very high. This is a wonderful summer.
10.07.2021. The Seagulls knows us very well and they always receive a good eating. Stopping here to clean the fish and then they get some. There are a few different fish now with a very good amount of mackerels. This summer I have just enjoyed myself on the water in small boat and my kayak. I have with me a Victorinox SwissTool, Victorinox 111mm safety knife and a Swiza pocket knife always. I also use a floating device on me everytime. Accidents can happen at any moment. This year many new boat users are on the water for the first time because of Covid virus. Safety is more important than ever before. In a kayak it is very smart to increase your strength so you can get away quickly. In general it is very nice on the water still. Modern boats got some incredible engines and speed. It is like rockets on the water.

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.
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.

Greetings from Hungary! Did you know that the head curve "inspired" the Spyderco Hungarian folder?
Exactly by a Hungarian designer who works for Spyderco (I can't remember his name)
