    I know its a Vic, but its got a serrated main blade and a PE small blade on it. As well as the two opener/screwdriver combos.

    Its about the size of a cadet, not as large as a Soldier

    Are you sure its a Victorinox? What is engraved on the main blade near the 'umbrella' icon at the pivot? By any chance does it say Delemont? Also, at least with the perspective the picture was taken, the scales at the end with the SE blade seem a trifle narrower than the other end. I'm wondering if it is a Wenger design, even if actually produced by Victorinox perhaps after the merger?

    There was a recent discussion in another thread here of a SAK with a full SE blade like this. Turned out it was a Wenger design now discontinued.

    I'll look around and maybe will edit this response if I find it....

    Here we go. See this: https://www.edcforums.com/threads/show-me-your-sak-part-2.128813/page-127#post-2620065

    In this set of posts, turns out it was a Wenger Journeyman, now discontinued. I am NOT suggesting yours is a Journeyman; but sure looks like it was/is a model from the same lineage?

    L'chaim!

    Wenger produced a number of knives with serrated blades. A few more pics with blade stamping would help to narrow this down.

    It looks like a Vic tang stamp to me, (at least what I can see of it) specifically one that ran from 1974-2005, also the scales are Victorinox, Wenger models don't have the same cut outs for the tweezers/toothpicks. I would be surprised to find out it's a Wenger, but I have been wrong before.

    Look at the copyright date at the bottom of that web page. It is after Wenger was absorbed into Victorinox; long enough after so that the rebranding of many of the Wenger designs as Victorinox would have already taken place. What I'm saying is that this knife could be either heritage. Although I'm betting it was a Wenger prior to the merger.

    Post us a pic of the tang stamps and we can put it to rest. I'd still bet Vic because of the scales. The combo tool and can opener also both suggest Victorinox.
    Either way it is a fairly rare knife and looks to be in good shape.

    IM going to put it to rest - as I stated in the first post, and then again later, it is a Victorinox.

    Trust me on this lol


    As for rare - rare enough that I could get a few bucks out of it?
    I dont know if I'd ever actually carry it, but would rather fuel my ALOX and LM game ha

    I have a Spartan with a serrated blade. Since I like to always have a SAK, and I like to have a serrated blade to complement a PE blade, this sometimes works out nice if I either don't want or cannot carry more than a couple of knives. Or sometimes this one alone, considering the pen blade is PE.

    L'chaim!
