One of my favourite Victorinox Swiss Knife, with the right bulk and the more useful tools for a daily and outdoor usage, especially I like the combination of scissors and woodsaw (a tool I always call Jean-Jacques, after the famous Enlightment philosopher).
Victorinox Pioneer X. It just replaced my Victorinox Stayglow Huntsman as my EDC knife.
The wonderful @profetosama‘s new pocket knife – a hand-made Kloetzli Walker 05. #schweizerqualitaet

Thank you. It only says “ROSTFREI INOXYDABLE M.i. GERMANY” I almost got it for free. Pictures of the stamped knife are coming right now.
If it came from Solingen, it’s possible the steel is not that bad and could be salvageable to be used as a cheap EDC. I have horror stories with cheap Italian or Chinese folding knives in my youth (once, when I was in the Navy, a friend of mine tried to open a bottle of wine with a SAK chinese copy. The corkscrew lost against all odds and against the cork. We discovered that all the metal pieces of the “knife” were made in nickel-covered bronze instead of steel).
Can you identify this knife? I bought it from a merchant in Lucerne.
Is there any marking on the blade ? My hypothesis, since it’s not one of these Camillus utility knives made for US Army or USMC, is that is only one of those cheap Chinese (alt. German, Italian or Spanish, if it’s way older) little “souvenirs” knives with a fantasy branding. As far as I can tell, it has no value apart from its utilitarian capabilities. But I like the bronze pressed/engraved folding knife just behind, you should post some pictures of it.
