Welcome Home

I picked up 2 SAK keychain knives at an antique store for next to nothing-- One is a no-name SAK-Only tang stamped stainless with a H inside a starburst on the handle-- The other one appears to be a genuine Victorinox with correct tang stamps, but I have never seen the handle markings before-(see pics) - The no-name is pretty minty but the poor Victorinox's handles sat to close to something hot and got melty in spots.LOL. However, it is perfectly functional and blades are in great shape.  Just wondering if anyone knows what the markings on the handles  stand for--Pics of the Victorinox , Victorinox tang stamps, and the last pic is of the no-name.

Depending on how you look at it, the no-name could either be an I or an H inside a star burst ( or sunburst). Much more interested in the Victorinox, although I would love to ID both----

John, I found this company that uses MH as their logo.

The bottom photo does not appear to be a  real Swiss Army Knife considering the nail file and scissors.  The file looks like the kind used to sharpen fish hooks and such.  I could however be wrong.

The one with the MH appears to be some type of ad knife and aloder one at that due to the "Victoria" stamp on the tang. The Victoria crossbow was used back in the 1940s.

well, 1940's may be the reason we cannot find the logo!

The second knife is not a Victorinox.

The first one is. There is this thing with the Victoria tag stamp. It is suposed to be used up to late 70's.

The scissors spring is also double so it is late 70s.Still I know that victorinox used old parts in many knifes made later on so it could be a late 70s early 80s knife of what ever company ordered a number of knifes to victorinox
