The Victorinox Climber — well known and definitely popular model.
This one doesn’t has toothpick and tweezers, probably it’s accordingly to the fact, that this one was produced as part of (cheaper) Elinox run (see shield type on scales),
- Climber Small
- Tinker Super
Actually this model was released before then name Lumberjack was given to the another model with similar configuration of tools. The one discrepance between them — latest Lumberjack has combo-tool instead of cap-lifter in Model 2231 r +.
The Victorinox Bantam II is a simple 1-layer knife with two blades.
Alox version of thos knife originally was named as Bantam, but later on it was renamed, because another version of Bantam (combo-tool instead of small blade) was released. Cellidor version, AFAIK, dodn’t had own name, only digital number.
This model is a knife from time, when Victorinox didn’t used dedicated names for their knives, instead this special numeric codes were used.
So, it’s a model 1240k, which can be a predecessor for a modern Lumberjack.
There are no too much information about this model in the web, even in SAKWiki, dedicated page was added just few monts before (Dec-2015).
So, this knife is a relatively rare model from 60-70s years of previous century. It has Elinox tang and shield. One of key features of this knife — technician screwdriver, which was present just on couple of models.
Unfortunately, my knife is in bad condition, — it has reshapened blade. If you have the same model in better condition and would like to sell/trade it, — please contact me.

The Bantam is a simple single-layer knife which was produced with two types of scales — cellidor and alox ones. Earlier versions of Bantam Alox were produced with Horizontally Ribbed scales (modern models – with usual dotted scales, for example).
