Granite scales

Rocknife

23.08.2019

Today I would like to show you a very special 58mm knife that a very good friend bought for me in Germany. I am very grateful for this!

Did you know that Victorinox produced knives with Granite rock? Yes they did and perhaps they still make some in rock. Anyhow this 58mm with the Classic functions without keyring and the handle functions was produced under the name “Rocknife” from 1991-1998. It was made six different 58mm and 74mm models.

The model I have here got Granite from Russia called Baltic brown with beautiful texture and design. Victorinox used six different types of granite from the world. Baltic brown seems to be found in different locations in the world too, also Finland it seems. Because the material is made by the Earth every model is different. You cannot find 100% similar scales. The craftsmanship is very well done, it is like artwork and these are listed by Victorinox under special collectors SAKs sphere.

Today I would like to show you my latest Granite Victorinox 58mm Classic called Bel Horizonte. I bought this from a very good friend that helped me find it. On the pictures you can see some other SAKs that he helped me with too. Beautiful knives in perfect condition. It is not an easy task cutting granite and forming it to fit on such a precision made Swiss knife. The workmanship is top notch! Sadly my friend had a burglary in his shop and several Victorinox knives and other was stolen. Several other quality products were also stolen. Things I was supposed to buy in the coming year 2020. Luckily I know how they look so I will look on my channels if they should appear. We have a sad development in the society.

I believe it is from Belo Horizonte in Brazil. Bel Horizonte is written on the label. I believe the granite is from Belo Horizonte in Brazil. The SAKs used granite from different parts of the world. It got beautiful color variations within a small piece. Under some light it appears with wonderful texture.

Hi! Good observation. Yes it seems there are some differences on them, both Wenger and Victorinox.
