Vintage Victorinox Fischermesser

In the 1960s or 1970s Victorinox offered two versions of the Fisherman’s knife or Fischermesser. They were available with blue scales (uncommon back in the day) with a fish emblem on the top of the front scale, instead of the Swiss shield and cross.

Edit (2020-11-28): there are roughly twice as many translucent scale colors in 91mm, including the Climber Gold edition, green and orange from the Color Twins sets, different shades of teal (for Motorex and … Read more
