    hello, new here and subscribed with a question ( good reason to suscribe )
    I have recently bought a vintage nos Victorinox Escort 74 mm, so the seller says.
    I have no reason to doubt it, the quality feels like Victorinox, the stamp looks 80s.
    A couple of things, its a 74 mm Vic, when on SAK wiki it says.
    The 74 mm Escort is sold without toothpick an tweezers, mine has.
    It is a blue scaled version, and the scales feel solid instead of the modern hollow ones.
    The walk and talk is smooth, but just a fraction less than modern SAK.
    Mabey becouse it is at least 30 years old.
    Also the blade seems a fraction thicker, but i could be foolded.
    Is it a Escort or a lesser known model ( as Victorinox often has ) p.s i do not know how to post pictures, tried it but i have no permission?

    Possibly just a scale swap, enabling him to carry a toothpick and tweezers?

    I did a little research on the big auction site, because I’m not too familiar with the Escort model. I searched “Victorinox 74mm”. There were no current listings for an Escort that had the toothpick/tweezer option. However, I checked the sold listings, and one did come up in red. Maybe your knife was a later model, possibly right before it was discontinued?

    Let's put it this way, if someone offered to buy me a SAK or an escort, I'd prefer the company. ;)
