493. Companion 74 (pre-Executive)

The Victorinox Companion 74 basically is the same knife as modern Executive but with several small discrepancies:
  1. It (probably) has an open rivets
  2. Scissors (probably) has one-leaf spring
  3. Nailfile with old pattern
  4. Tweezers have metallic heading (optional)
  5. There is no keyring (this is the main difference!)

After some investigation of old Victorinox catalogs I’ve discovered that Companion 74 changed its own name to the Executive (and got keyring and hidden rivets) approximately at the same time as Companion 58 model was released.

Can you imagine which name Companion 58 had before this release? The answer is: Executive. No comments. 🙂
