Victorinox 108mm

Victornox 108mm frame models; GAK, Hunter imitation-stag, Mauser and Solo. |The Victorinox 108mm knives or Safari Series essentially started with a design (or proposed design) for the German Army Knife, or GAK, in 19yy. The design is quite different from the other Victorinox models probably because the knife was build to supplied German Military specification. These models feature some unique tools and operational characteristics. All the layer tools pivot open on the same rivet at the top end of the knife which is very intuitive as all the tools, including those on the back, open in the same direction. This is the only series that offers a corkscrew on the back, but no models with a Phillips screwdriver. Many of these knives came with removable saw guards.These knifes are not often recognized as Swiss Army Knives, and in fact the GAK was manufactured by several different manufacturers. The 108mm Series was first introduced and marketed as the Safari Series, the large red colored civilian models really stand out and were the first Victorinox knives to use Nylon scales. The olive green Mauser branded model has been quite popular with collectors.
