768. Budding and garden knife (3.9116)
This knife isn’t a genuine Swiss army knife, no doubt, but it’s a Victorinox knife for sure, so I’d like to have it in my collection.
In the past, the Victorinox company produced a wide variety of different gardener knives. Unfortunately, the number of available models is just decreasing every year. I hope that I will be lucky enough to find all these variations before they became really rare ones.
Interesting fact: did you pay attention to the fact that the design of layers was changed in comparison with the first runs of this knife? Initially curved blade and brass bark lifter were placed in the same axis, but now they are on opposite axis. See pictures from old Victorinox brochures below (I don’t remember who author of these two pictures is, I found them in some collector’s group on Facebook).
