is time to write a few sentences about the 74mm Alox advertising knives. I have already mentioned that there are many uncertain factors with them. For sure I have a good idea about the age on them.
The 74mm category got both regular models and advertising models. The black ones are the knives that I am the most uncertain about. What is for sure is that during a period
such knives were used for advertisings here. Which is nice and interesting, it gives a good feeling.
You also find
a type of pocket knife that is kind of similar looking. Only these were produced by EKA and in the Eskilstuna area. Typically these had special scales with beautiful decorations. Especially the scissors on some looks remarkably similar to the Victorinox ones.
Custom made perhaps….It all gives inspiration and joy to the interest.
What is extra interesting is the
advertising. It seems for a good period these black scaled Alox handles seems to have been used on knives for the furniture industry. Several of them got adverts for Norwegian
Companies there. I could ask Victorinox but I find it the most interesting just to wait it out and see what information that could appear in the future. Because of age differences
there are variations on the design on the scissors, nail file and so on. Not to forget tang stamps!
