Today I have a very interesting box and advertising SAK. It is an 84mm in beautiful condition. The box is a multi-language type which is a bit special with
even Dutch language on it. Another strange thing is that the number 2.3600 is marked not on the regular fashion but on one of the small flaps. I am not sure if it is an original box for this knife. I have seen many strange things with economy made box and
knives with different emblems.
I am super glad I managed to buy this knife from a collector which I am very grateful for. The value
on it is all the factors that are different so I have a continuation of educating my knowledge further. The functions on this SAK are probably never used at all. The emblem is a type with Victorinox cross and shield with only color print. No connecting lines
on it could be because it is just a print and not inlay.
I hold this knife to be an advertising line for sure and if this box is original
to this I am not sure yet. It is fine no matter what it turns out to be because it is most likely an original box from Victorinox. It seems during the 80s and 90s many different boxes appear on the economy line. I have the date on this particular SAK and box
open for now. I have done research on the 84mm models and for sure the regular 91mm evolution is not even near in dates. This I got confirmation on from the web over the years too. Some things are much earlier while other details are very late. I recommend
taking a look on Swiss Army Knights forum. There are several specialists there, also one extreme.
have experienced before asking a Company
when they issued such knives. Sometimes you get an answer with nice info while others got no archive for it. The color for the box may have faded some. It got the new numbering system. In 1994 Victorinox ended the hot stamp emblem economy type to the cross
and shield Victorinox hot stamp type with a different configuration.
