A regular Bijou SD model, but with signature of somebody by name “G.Bush” (who is this person?) and gold logo of US vice-president.
The Victorinox Cadet is a very popular Alox model in 84-mm range. But this one is something relatively rare. Let’s check what SAKWiki knows:
A Copper colored model was available for a short time prior to 2006 and is considered a collector’s item.
P.S. Special thanks to Mile Živković for the help with identifying!
Pretty vintage Victorinox Companion 74 – “father” of modern Executive.
Current model is an another example of strange logic of Victorinox distributors, that was discussed many times (with no success).
In 1990-x they’re released a series of some Victorinox knives for the “Boy Scouts of America” organization. In this series were included next knives: Adventurer, Classic, Sentry, Tinker, Explorer (was listed by some dealers as Yeoman!), Climber and Pocked Pal (was released with name FeatherWeight).
Today’s hero also was a part of this huge series, but with name of different knife – Huntsman (actually it’s a Fieldmaster, no doubt).
Carl Victorinox, why?
The Victorinox Fisherman – old and vintage model with shackle, clip-point small blade and squared Phillips screwdriver with nail-file.
model is a one from few models, which all are part of series “Famous Mountains”
. Actually, all of them are regular models, but all has serrated blade
instead regular one
.. and new name instead of habitual one.
So, – McKinley, also known as Tinker – third item from “Famous Mountains” series in my collection.
The Victorinox SwissChamp XXLT knife is a one of fews, produced specially for
stupid people collectors. Moreover – it’s a one from three (or four?) models which has extremely rare tool – Butane Lighter.
Short summary: nice, valuable, not suitable for EDC.
- SwissChamp X series
Few weeks before I’ve reviewed a predecessor of current model Lumberjack
– Model 2231
. Ooops, now Lumberjack
called as Walker
, I can not get used to it..
But lets talk about knives. Today’s knife is a predecessor of Lumberjack model, which was a predecessor of today’s knife Walker… Much better 🙂
As Model 2231, this knife has a cap-lifter instead of combo-tool and cellidor scales instead of Alox ones, but doesn’t have dedicated name. At least, I couldn’t find it yet.
- Model 2231
Early variation of Electrician Alox model with old cross. Before 1980 this model had a name Model 2212.
