swiss pocket knives

No. 146 k


Not too much is known about the No. 146 k model. It was basically the model no. 246 k, but with a Phillips screwdriver instead of the corkscrew. It can be assumed that it was only produced in small numbers and is therefore quite rare.

The model no. 146 k was produced until the end of the 1960s. It is no longer listed in the 1971 catalog (cf. Kat 1971). At that time, there was an almost endless range of different pocket knives, which differed only in small changed features. The four models/variants no. 236 k, 136 k, 246 k and 146 k no longer exist. Only the larger relatives in 91 mm remained, the models 236 and 136, or the Huntsman and Fieldmaster.

functional parts

In addition to a small and a large cutting blade, the model no. 146 k had a can opener, a screwdriver, scissors and a saw, an awl, a Phillips screwdriver and a long nail file on the back.

Model No.246k was available with or without a toothpick/tweezers.
