So now to four knives that got high-end quality.
The four knives may look the same before you take a closer look at them. Three of them are extra collectable.
The first knife on the top is a special
Motorist with the “automobile” nickel-silver inlays and it is a Victoria Officiers Suisse crossbow knife, from 1968-1974. There is no +PAT on the can opener, the forged Phillips got no slot but the file is on it. I would say this SAK could be 1970.
This knife is probably a private knife given by Victorinox to a person.
The knife blade is also thicker and the whole knife got the same functions like on the St Christopher Motorist. It got
aluminum head tweezers.
The second knife got the same functions and it almost the same only a few different details. It is an “Officier Suisse” with crossbow and I would say this is from
1978-1979 based on many functions. I would say this model is also made with a more high-end production. The Phillips got no file and there is no cable scraper on the flat screwdriver. There is a slot for in the Phillips that is used as a can-wrench.
Nickel-silver inlays and plastic head tweezers.
The number three knife got the number 1.4642.73 and is from 1979-1980 and got a small blade instead of the fine screwdriver. This knife is also made
with high precision and very high quality. I would believe this knife to be made 1979-1980 and sold after 1980. The original box got the new numbering system. It got the slot in the Phillips, no file. Also this got nickel-silver inlays.
The number four knife is after or 1980; it got a stainless metal inlays instead of nickel-silver. The Phillips still look the same and got the slot, however there is a difference in how it is made. And in 1980 the new
round Phillips was introduced. This Phillips got the squarer design like on the other three and I would put this knife in 1980 +- 1 year. The whole Swiss army Knife is very well made. It is an Officiers Suisse Crossbow stamped knife.
