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. Nail-file with old pattern
  4. Tweezers has metallic heading (optional)
  5. There are no key-ring (this is a main difference!)

After some investigation of old Victorinox catalogs I’ve discovered, that Companion 74 changed 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. 🙂

  1. Can you tell me more about this knife? Can’t seem to find much about it except on your site! I just got one exactly like this after my Grandmother passed. Years of neglect, but still a beauty nevertheless. Which year was it made? Thanks!

  2. Hi,

    Do you have access to the old Victorinox catalogs? It’s a simplest way to determine age of your knife.
    If you can — send me few photos of your knife to leaf.avf (at) gmail dot com and I’ll try to check it’s age.
