You can find some information on the 84mm knives on the internet. Some years ago I received information from Victorinox also.

Usually these knives can be difficult to date and it can be difficult to find the correct name for them.

Many collectors use the numbers for identification usually. The names Popular and Secretary can be found on the internet. With the 84mm ribbed red alox knives I have found that they usually follow the Pioneer Range stampings and this can be helpful to know. The shim/spacer and key ring are made of Brass before 1986. The secretary with Victoria & crossbow stamp on the backside of the main blade was made 1968-1974. I am not sure if older blades could have been used further but the information on the Secretary from Victorinox say 1968-1974.

I have found that Victorinox has used different holders made of an imitation material and more.

It seems both the Secretary and popular can be found with different holders in history. 1957 ia s magic date for the alox knives by Victorinox but for the Pioneer Range. On the picture are knives from the 1960s-early 1980s in random order. If you have any questions just let me know!


It is fun to collect these knives and they are desirable for many. A victoria stamp is usually something extra.

I will post some more interesting things on this page. Many like minimalistic knives and these are very lightweight and slim. The quality is high!

The Red Alox knives with old cross is extra interesting!

Update 84mm Solo 2071 r+

Here are two interesting Elinox Solo 84mm 2071r+ knives. Like you know there are some production variations and evolution on knives. These two knives really get the mind working and going.

The Elinox on the top is extra interesting because of the different nail nick and that the blade is more in center + thicker on some places.

It is understandable that the main blade got production variations because on some knives it must fit into a body with more functions. Still i believe there is something more to the blade on the top. 1957-1974 is the period with the Elinox stamp and i believe these two are from around the late 1960s.




On the pictures today you can see three 84mm Cadet Alox knives together with a couple Classic 58mm Alox models. The Champagne Gold on the top to the left and in the middle you can see one of the Limited 5 colors Cadets Victorinox made some time ago. These you can find information about on the web. The orange color is just wonderful and really fresh looking.


Superb quality!

My latest 84mm Alox SAK is the Limited Edition 2020 Cadet in Aqua Blue color. I do not know anyone that does not like the Cadet. It got the slim and lightweight construction that is perfect for EDC. This year’s limited color is very nice and the precision is top notch. Opening and closing the functions it got the typical luxury feeling that Victorinox is known for. With sturdy springs still comfortable to open and close with the typical sounds a SAK makes. It is a sweet product that gives superb value for the money. On the internet you can find some information on the history of Cadets and also videos on them.

Hi and thank you very much for question. The closest I know is the Master Fisherman 1.4753.72. The. 73 is related to what inlay it got maybe. Best Regards Trond
