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).

It was a gift from grandpa and has seen better days.

Very nice !

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.



This one is mine. The rifles cost about $300 here in the United States and the diopters are about the same price.

Nice mousqueton (and very nice picture, too) ! Was the owner’s label still under the buttplate when you got it ?

I’d like to compliment you for being the first American providing a picture of a Mq 31 with the safety ring in the correct position ;o)

On another topic, since I’m accidentally posting a lot of firearm-related content today, I’d like to announce I’ll get my new gun tomorrow. Can you guess what it will be* ?

*not a mousqueton


@latmover : nice ! your collection ? 


K. got herself a new pet. It’s a 1973 Czolt Czobra, in better shape than mine. It will be the perfect companion for her first-gen ČZ 75.


Greetings!! may I submit this to you? :

As an independent artist it’s hard to get people to hear music, so I’m relying on people’s support, a reblog would be lovely or anything like that 😀 

The song is available for here:

thanks for your support 😀

Of course you can. It’s not bad at all, with some quiet Pixies and Sonic Youth vibes. I like it.
