Victorinox produced model no. 14 between the 1920s and the 1970s. It was a 3-part pocket knife with a large cutting blade, pocket awl and hooked blade. Victorinox produced this model in all possible sizes and in all variants.
Unlike the army knives, for example, the farmer's knives had less fixed positions that always remained the same. For example, on Model No. 14, the hooked blade and blind awl shared one layer, while the large cutting blade had its own layer. Model No.9 had hooked blade and large cutting blade dividing a layer, and Model No.12 had pocket awl and hooked blade. With farmer's knives, there were many more combinations of just a few tools that made up a separate model. Apart from the large cutting blade, there were no fixed tools that were mounted on many other peasant knives. This was different with the officer's knives, where, for example, fixed positions were very often used, such as small and large cutting blades with an awl, or screwdrivers and can openers with a corkscrew, or scissors with a long nail file.
Pocket knife No. 14 had a large cutting blade, a hook blade and a pocket awl. There was an optional hanger for this model. Model No. 14 was a 2-layer pocket knife.
Big cutting blade: 2.3 mm – 2.8 mm; Awl: 2.0 mm; Hook blade: 2.0 mm
In model no. 14, the large cutting blade and hooked blade were attached to the head rivet, the blind awl to the foot rivet. A center rivet attached the back feathers. The upper layer consisted of a hooked blade and a blind awl.
Victorinox originally used black fiber scales as the material for this pocket knife, later also class I and II horn and red fiber instead of black fiber.
The rivets and liners were made of steel or brass, the jaws of steel or nickel silver, depending on the version. In the case of the high-quality, so-called "fine version", rivets and liners made of brass and jaws made of nickel silver were used, and rust-resistant steel was used for the tools, if this was already available.
