Unlike most knife blades, the horticultural blades are sharpened on one side only, and have a flat face on the other side. A chisel-grind edge makes them popular for crafts work, since you can slide the flat part along a straightedge and get a very precise cut on leather, balsa, plastics or other soft materials. Also useful when cutting live plants, since it won't crush the plant tissues on the live side. Victorinox gradually retired the Horticultural models, starting in the late 90s and continuing until the last was eliminated in 2014.This knife is one of the RAREST models: it contains. A 60mm (2 3/8") clip point blade, 70mm (2 3/4") Wharncliffe blade and a brass 32mm (1 1/4) bark lifter blade.
Such combination was not common in 100 mm series. Its red nylon scales are thicker and tougher than other Swiss Army knives, and are held together by tough brass rivets. This version has aluminum liners. SakWiki identifies it only as a Model 1.9113.Just for your references, this model stands next to other 100mm models, such as Gardener, Wharncliffe-blade Gardener, Twine-type Gardener, Day Packer, Grafter and Pruner. The body is 100mm (4 inches) long.
Main stainless steel blades have Victorinox Switzerland Stainless Rostfrei stamped on their base. It is SUPER CLEAN and all blades have great loud snap when opening or closing. Pictures are of the actual knife you will get. Thank you for looking, and Good Luck!
