Late 1970s Vintage, 108mm Victorinox SAFARI / RED TROPPER Swiss Army Knife - SAK. 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 is quite popular with collectors. The series features some unique tools and operational characteristics.
It is the only series that offers a corkscrew on the back, but no models with a Phillips screwdriver. Some models also feature the unusual saw/screwdriver/opener combination tool, which usually came with a removable saw guard. 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. The 108mm series is discontinued. Cosmetics: Brand New Old Stock NOS knife, in the original plastic sleeve / sheath, in the original red box.If you were wondering: these early Safaris, most times, were not offered in a box -but the plastic sleeve only- and, back the, did NOT come with the wood saw cover.
