473. Fischermesser II (235 fma ?)

First of all, I have to say, that probably I’m wrong and this knife is another modification of  Fischermesser. If you compare images of an actual knife with the pictures from Victorinox catalogs (see below), you will find several differences.

  • There is no shackle (keyring instead of it). So, it cannot be 235fmaU for sure (U – means shackle).
  • Fish inlay on original scales (knife was repaired, photo of original knife you also can find below) was placed on bottom side (Victorinox shield also was present there, as on today’s models Angler/Fisherman). Original Fischermesser had fish inlay instead of shield on top side of scale.
  • This knife has an additional tool (in comparison with 235fmaU) – on back-side.

I summary – I don’t know what exactly this model is. I had never seen it before, and I couldn’t find any information about this knife yet.

So, any of your help (with identifying this knife) will be very appreciated!

P.S. Knife was repaired (replacing of both blades, new scales) by my friend Ivan.
