Golfer 84mm

Here is a rare knife, an 84mm original Golfer with a long nail file. The Victorinox Golfer 84mm is a slim 2-layer knife, it is thought of as the predecessor of the modern Compact. Since the scissors tool is no longer available on any 84mm sized Victorinox knife, this model remains very popular. This model was made in two basic tool varieties; one version contains a long thin nailfile/cleaner on the back of the knife, this specific configuration is highly sought after by collectors as well as others. Starting with this knife, there were several changes over the years leading to the Golfer 91mm and eventually ending up with the Compact. Discontinued model.

Scale Tools

Scales 

Standard Red Cellidor scales. Luxury versions, with long-nail-files, were also made with horn and mother-of-Perl scales.

Variations

  1. Early model 0.3102 has a small blade instead of the combo-opener tool.
  2. There is also a version of this knife with the rare Long Nail File/Cleaner on the back.
  3. On some versions of this knife the Combo Tool did not have a ))half-stop((. It appears that on those versions the combo tool also had a more angular profile, with a straight edge directly above the nail nick, as opposed to the more common rounded edge on modern knives.
  4. Luxury versions with first class Buffalo Horn and Mother of Pearl handles were made.


History

The model numbers in the 0.16xx range and those in the 0.34xx seem to represent identical model configurations, and it is likely that this resulted from one of the changes in the numbering system that Victorinox has made over the years. This model was probably very popular in its day as it was made available in luxury models with genuine horn and mother-of-pearl scales. Its larger 91mm cousin the Climber with Long-Nailfile was still being produced in 2010 in very small quantities, but that was likely the end of the long-nailfile tool on the Swiss Army Knife.
