The Victorinox Executive is a 74mm model with unique tool – orange-peeler.
Interesting fact: the same model, but with stainless steel scales has unique name – Director, all others (cellidor, wood, Alox and even gold and silver) shares the same name Executive.
The Victorinox Cadet II is the same model as regular Cadet, but with small blade (clip-pointed) instead of nail-file. Historically this version was produced before regular Cadet, but as sometimes happened (the same situation with Bantam / Bantam II), later on new version got a ‘Cadet‘ name while this one – Cadet II.
More interesting thing – it has not typical for this form-factor material of scales, as you can see, they’re smooth (and beautiful!)
The Victorinox Rogue – 2-layers pocket-knife (58-mm), accordingly to SAKWiki, this one was produced in date range from 1995 to 1997 (pay attention to the wire stripper [absence]).
Few days ago I’ve published article about “unknown” edition of Classic SD. Approximately in 10 minutes after I’ve shared post on Facebook, I got an answer about knife’s model. Maybe this time I’ll be lucky too? (by the way, I have few other Classics, which still not identified…)
Update: It’s an Classic SD Argyle from LE2010. Thanks, !
Besides changes in 111-mm series, in 2017 Victorinox has announced several “new” knives. It was a habitual Spartan,… but with black-coated tools. This time it wasn’t a black-oxide coating, but something new chemical process (named as Inox-Spectral ®). Two versions of Spartan were released as part of this series – with white and black scales. Now let’s review a first one..
Victorinox NailClip 580 – small pocket knife from Delemont collection (yes, it means, that actually this is ex-Wenger model, not “genuine” Victorinox..) Anyway, I like it, so +1 item to my collection.
Victorinox Classic SD, – this one looks like limited edition, but still cannot identify to which run it belongs.
Update: It’s a Classic SD Fern, produced (probably) before 2010. Many thanks to for extra-fast support with identifying!
As I wrote in previous post, in 2017 Victorinox did a great surprise (If you know what I mean) for all collectors – they re-released some old models with slide-lock mechanism but this time with liner-lock. Technically (from my point of view) these models should be named as new ones, but Victorinox didn’t think so..
So, let’s review “new old” model – Cheese knife
. In comparison with previous one
, this model has a locking (and bigger) cap-lifter
without sewing eye and new locking mechanism for sure.
- Hardwood Cheese Knife
- Swiss Cheese knife (Käsemesser)
In 2017 Victorinox announced a serious reorganization of their 111-mm series. Accordingly to it, all models with slider-lock were discontinued. As a (partial) replacement, few liner-lock models were released.
One of them (and first item in my collection) – very popular model Forester, but with nicely wooden scales.
