Accableing to the Victorinox catalogues, model no. 34 was not produced until the 1940s. However, there are many models in the size 112 mm, which indicate a much earlier production. These early models are often provided with the initials +GF+, which indicates the company Georg Fischer AG. It is possible that many of these early models were produced specifically for this company, which is why the model was not included in the official catalogues.
The model no. 34 was officially only available in the size 106 mm and there in different variants. The original very early version was 3-layer. Large cutting blade and saw shared the middle position. Later, the No.34 model became a 4-layer pocket knife.
Model No. 34 had a large cutting blade and a corkscrew, a screwdriver, a saw, a can opener and a square awl. The additional bail was available as an option for the model.
Big cutting blade: 3.0 mm; Awl: 2.2 – 2.5 mm; Screwdriver: 2.0 – 2.5mm; Saw: 2.2 – 2.5 mm; Can opener: 2.2 – 2.5 mm; Corkscrew: 2.2 – 2.6 mm
Model No.34 was a 3-layer or 4-layer model. In the later official version, the large cutting blade, saw, can opener and screwdriver moved around the head rivet, the corkscrew around the center rivet and the square awl around the base rivet. The upper layer consisted of a screwdriver and a square awl, the 2nd layer of the large cutting blade, the 3rd layer of the saw and the lower layer of the can opener and the corkscrew.
Victorinox used red fiber scales and class I and II horn as the material for this pocket knife.
The rivets and liners were made of steel or brass, the jaws of 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.
