There are several different areas of maritime sphere SAKs. On the picture above you can see a 91mm category. I am rather sure the SAK itself is made 1988-1992.
The advertising could be later or 1988-1998. The functions are similar to the Climber model only without the usual keyring. This advertising SAK probably only had a number. The advertising is metal inlay on black scales. I do not believe the functions been
used much, they are very nice. The scales got some scratches that in reality could be polished gone. I just leave it as it is. I have no doubts when looking at this how advertisings got a strong impact when on a quality knife.
One thing I learned when researching
the Company names is that the internet can be a very valuable help. It can also be misleading because the name Skibsaksjeselskapet Storli is not from 1993 as some places inform. I do not rule out the possibility but when I did some deeper research on the web
I found that it’s been around for a very long time. At Bergenbyarkiv.no they inform Founded in 1916 and listed in 1986. I also found some old stocks on the web! They changed a name in 1998. This is the reason for why I placed the advertising 1988-1998
that could be in the time window. The SAK itself got all the aspects of 1988-1992. I am fully open for changes on the advert....
I hope you enjoy my pages here on sakhome.com. When looking on the knives and SAKs with advertising it gives a strong impression. The versatile abilities
and quality makes the difference to me. Knives with just printed advertising, personalizing and profiling also works very well for me. There are several methods for placing adverts as you can see on my pages. For example the alox must be done special and so
forth. Inlays require extra steps in a production. In my experience I am also surprised how well the printed paint types can last a long time when used. I really enjoy collecting the SAKs!
