TickTool 03

20.10.2018

This is my latest Swiza knife and this is the TT03 in red. I have tested the tick tool function from before in the summer and I find it to be very functional. The TT03 is a bit more pocket friendly compared to the models with additional wood saw. The red color when in the light got the traditional touch of orange and it is easy to see if you drop it someplace. This is an elegant knife to have for EDC when you are around areas with Ticks. It is nice to have this if you got dogs or cats. Not to forget for people as well. I find the TT03 to be well made and it gives a quality feeling in the hand. It is a sturdy construction used on the Swiza knives and models with a durable design. For sure this Brand got the touch of versatile elegance and utility for EDC or special purpose needs.

I am looking a bit into the numbering system. Here you see two TT03 red with the same designation.

TT03 x 2 in red and TT03 Filix numbering system

I know some have questions on the numbering system because of the number used on the box and on the tang of the blade. These numbers are different with for example the TT03 Filix got the identification for the model, name and color KNI.0070.2060 on the box. On the backside of the tang for the blade the number is A17-52 and as you see on the picture the TT03 red is A17-51. The two last digits is then the difference in handle pattern/design as I see it. What is most important knowledge is that the tang numbering represents the production with model type. I believe it is Swiza Company identification for the model and additional information regarding protection of the products. That the blade got numbers and identifications mean that Swiza can look into the production numbers for this model and find when it was made and additional information. If knives somehow should be sent back to them it is easier. I will look into it because I need 100% information to be able to be fully sure. What we can learn from the numbers is that each similar knife does not have separate numbers. That I would believe is done by engravings and other methods on other parts of the knife. The backside tang stamp can have limited numbers still.

  I can see that in the same batches of knives there is very little difference if any on them. I have found production variations on Swiza knives buy these are not from the same batch. There are some variations on the locking mechanism, edge and other as well.

On Swiza knives you find the emblem and the Swiss Made designation. The backside of the tang numbers indicates further protection and identification. This is my information so far and as soon as I find more I will post it.

Further on numbering system research:

 

Here is why i need 100% information on the blade numbers and an alternative theory on it.

 

Above this last post I mentioned the difference in the numbers but it is not so easy to make it out 100%. I wonder too if the numbers are not always related to distinguish models from each other. For example on the D04 scout knife that you find in my Swiza list, the backside tang stamp is A17-52. This could mean that the numbers have unknown factors. A17-52 while the box is without numbering or further identification.  My Swiza D06 black got the tang number A17-098, an extra digit compared to other models with equal amounts of functions. So you see it is not easy to distinguish the tang stamp numbers completely. One indication was also production year but I do not have 100% confirmation yet. It is very interesting and very fun and adds to the flavor for sure.

In some cases it seems the numbering system on the backside of the blade got unknown meanings for us and it could be for the protection of the brand as mentioned today. It is the number on the box that is the number that should be used by us for indentification. It is also a very nice feature from Swiza with the production date packaging on the same label and box. The number on the box in my opinion is the only number that we should use and i recommend to collect the knife and the box. Most collectors i know agree that if you trade a knife in the future it is a big bonus if you have the original box to go with the knife or model.

In some cases it seems blades with a similar tang number can be found on models with different set of functions as mentioned. In some cases the tang numbers represents a code system and sometimes it seems it distinguish models from each other.

I can add also that my Swiza D06 red got the tang number A17-008 labeled on the box 170523 that should be the 23 of May 2017 while the black model got A17-098 labeled 170822 that should be 22of August 2017. My Swiza AllBlack D03 with black handle and PVD black functions got the tang number A17-20

On older Swiza knives the A letter with additional number designation sometimes follow the year on the label but absolutely not always. This you can see on the A17 too.

I would say on the economy line without sewing eye up to 1987. With sewing eye 1985-1987 until today. The economy line got variations. BR

Hi, good observation. The economy line does not follow the regular line. Some times it is close like the sewing eye can be 1985+ couple years on the economy.BR

For example, if a Spartan economy line has a punch without a sewing eye, is it still pre 85?

Hi Trond! A doubt. Are the tools dating rules on Vic's regular and economic lines the same?
