Victorinox 108mm knives

Victorinox 108mm knives

These knives are from the 108mm Victorinox knives. The 108mm range started when Victorinox began making the German Army Knife (GAK) to specification for the German army. Based on the GAK, a couple of other knives have been available until recently. There are a limited number of different tools in the series and the 108mm knives are at most 3 layers thick.

The redesigned model 1951 was slightly smaller (93mm) and had brown fiber scales. The one in the picture has fiber scales but measures 100mm. Also, there is no year stamped on the main blade, which all knives made after 1920 usually had. So, I don’t really know when this one was
