Brass rivets

 

Victorinox use brass rivets in their Swiss Army Knives and it is almost impossible to pull a SAK apart. The use of bushings is a very strong design.

On the picture you can see the rivets that held a 91mm knife together. This knife has seen rather hard use. Sometimes this knife took much more force than the size and dimensions should take.

Even so the rivets and bushings did not bend or stretch out of position and they are surprisingly straight. There are a few grooves in the brass from the steel functions or implements. This knife was taken apart on purpose. Either the grooves are from sand/dirt or they are from the edges of the hole in the functions because of the twisting when using a screwdriver or other functions.

A Swiss Army Knife got precision and it is a remarkable knife.

Older Alox usually have two rivets made of nickel-silver and the center one made of steel. I believe it to be steel. Today all the rivets are made of nickel-silver.

Yes for sure the lever spring scissors started without serrations. These you find 1973-1977. Thank you very much. BR

The super scissors 1977 got the lever system, got serrations and is self sharpening. The period 1971-77 May contain variations. Wenger started the future. BR

So the scissors with lever system were once had plain edges? Wow, I would never have imagined it! You have the best information about SAKs in the entire Web. Thank you very much, regards!

It is the same lever system from the early 70s, Wenger designed this because it is a safer and more durable. In the late 70s it got serrations.
