In reality it is not necessary to know what the numbering on the blades means. It is a quality detail for sure. It is the Swiss made with the Swiza dedication
on the blade that is the most important. Still I know there are many that are interested in this numbering.
I learned that with SAKs
and Swiss Knives in history that some parts could be produced for a specific period of time. In the history I learned that different markings on the SAKs were done for future information. Some hidden markings could be placed so a Company could identify the
batch if modifications were done. This could be markings on liners, scales and other.
With Swiza knives it is a numbering system that
is fully open and not individual numbers for models. It is a general numbering for a batch of blades. It could also be that the blades could be made a while before so the label on the box with the date is when it is fully assembled and packaged. Again, this
is not 100% information. Just that we can write about this and dwell on it show how such a detail lifts the products up.
of products becomes a protection and it would be difficult to make fakes. I also learned in the history of SAKs and Swiss products that some blades may look completely the same, it still could be small details that differentiates them. This can be for specific
reason regarding locking mechanisms and the general assembly together with many functions and so forth. It could be that numbers on the backside tang on the Swiza blades got dates. I am not 100% sure because I have seen many and it could be different on some.
One thing is for sure and this is that such numbering must be very helpful for the Company. It is a quality impression to me because of that.
It could be implemented factors in a production for future development and quality control. Quality control is a big thing with Swiss products and not only the general inspection of the knives going out but also if any should come back. I have been
into some of this before and I hope you enjoy it too. I do believe that markings and numbers on products are very important.
In the time I have been into products from Switzerland it is only one time that I had to send a product for repair. Maybe it could have been two if I wanted. No
Swiza yet. In general the Swiss makes the best pocket knives without a doubt. I have collected a few knives over the years that other people have abused and luckily I found some hidden markings on them. This was very educational.
Last today i can inform some about the history of SAKs that hidden markings was done to identify modifications. If any changes in the products it could be marked
on a hidden place so they could identify it if it came back. We know with SAKs about the constant quality development, quality control, modifications and the evolution. It is typical also that Swiss Watches got specific numberings on them and we know that
the Swiza knives are related to the famous Swiza Watches too. In Swiss knives there are many extreme tolerances with precision and assembly.
