438. Victorinox Soldier 1890

This knife is Soldier 1890 (version of 1908 year). It’s a civilian variation (see tang “P” on reverse side of the blade) version of Soldier’s knife. Probably repaired by owner (with replacing main blade after 1952).

I would like to thank Igor Grigoriev (aka Novichok79) from Russian forum rusknife.com for his support with recognizing details of this knife!

414. Model 234k (predecessor of Tourist)

This is a old knife from 1940-1950 years, which was called as Model 234k. Nearest model from our days – it’s a Tourist, which has the same size (84 mm) and the same tools.

It has genuine horn scales, old-shaped tools, bail instead of usual key-ring and looks very nice for its age.
