439. Helmsman

Victorinox Helmsman is a three-layers 111-mm knife with unusual (for this form-factor) blue color of scales and white print of wind rose.

The first version of Helmsman had usual red scales without any print and was known as Mariner (I’m still looking for this model for reasonable price, by the way!).

This knife contains a unique tool which was designed especially for marine usage – Shackle Opener with Marlinspike.

My variation of knife has partially serrated blade, version with fully serrated blade also exists and known as Helmsman CS (unofficial name).
