The model no. 207 k / no. 244 k has a very long history. The beginnings were around 1900, the model was then still called No. 207 k. It featured a short nail file where the awl would normally be. Later, probably at the end of the 1930s, a long nail file was used instead of the short one, as had been used on other models (e.g. 75 mm) for a long time. This configuration remained until the 1970s. Then there were two variants; one with and one without a long nail file. Around 1979/1980 the combo tool (a mixture of can opener, bottle opener and screwdriver) was used instead of the small cutting blade. The model was produced until about the year 2000. After that, no more scissors were made for the 84 mm models, which meant that model no. 244 k came to an end.
Model No. 244 k had a small and a large cutting blade, along with scissors, and a nail file and corkscrew on the back. The model was available with or without bails and with or without tweezers and toothpicks.
Big blade: 2.4 mm – 2.5 mm; small blade: 1.7 mm; Scissors: 2.4mm; Nail file: 2.4 mm; Corkscrew: 3.0 mm (later 2.8 mm; even later: 2.4 mm)
The top layer typically consists of scissors on the front and a nail file on the back. On model 207 k, the small nail file was still fixed using a center rivet, while on the successor model, no. 244 k, foot rivets were used. If no nail file was attached, the scissors were not attached to the head rivet as usual, but to the foot rivet. The lower layer is identical to model no. 248 k in the combination with a small and large cutting blade and a corkscrew on the back.
For a long time, the model was typically available with fiber scales, later also optionally with horn or mother-of-pearl, and from 1937 with celluloid/ cellidor instead of fiber.
In the first models, the liners and spacers were made of brass and the rivets were made of carbon steel, later the rivets were exclusively made of nickel silver, which was also used for the spacers and liners. Both the intermediate layers and the spacers were later replaced by aluminum.
