Victorinox Walther


Between the years 1976 and 2003 Victorinox produced the GAK (German Army Knife) in the size of 108mm.
The GAK was the first model in the series of the 108mm knives and the first knife who used nylon scales.
Victorinox used the GAK design in order to create civilian models.
Most of the 108mm models is no longer produced and become collectors' items.
The Walther is a special edition that was made in 1996-97. Only 4.972 pieces were made. 
It's the only 108mm knife with black scales.

  1. Wow, that looks nice, thanks for introducing me to the Walther. I wonder why Victorinox decided to discontinue it, do you know?

  2. I don't know why they discontinue it, maybe because the decided to discontinue the entire line of the 108mm knives.
    All the best

  3. That is one of the best models actually. Sadly it is difficult to get one of those swiss army knives nowadays.
