12:01 same order as above. Obvious SAKs thats been around and hard used. date: I could be wrong, these are knives 1970-1985 for now. In general the ABS Bright red economy SAKs are below average in quality still people used them for many years.
One very important factor with Victorinox is the emblem and tang stamp. This is a 100% fact. For many the hot stamp is one type, which
is not correct. The reason why I call them hot stamped is when you clearly see an imprint that is melted into the scale with color. It is also obvious for the eye that the configuration and design on the pictures above is not similar. I have no doubt that
production-variations happen. My digital caliper is accurate still I say Approx…..In my research on the hot stamped SAKs I found dozens of small differences…………….
Another factor with the hot stamped emblems used on let’s call them economy made knives, is the relation
between blade thickness and emblem which reflects dates of manufacture. This not always and also the corkscrews are related to it.
last today i can mention that i am aware about the small blade design that got the "from 1973 type" and it is part of my analyzing. From before you know
that the wide emblem i place 1973-1975, perhaps up to 1979. Then the new stamp arrived i showed you. It is spice for the hobby!
