Specially for East Asian market Victorinox company produced a lot of special runs of their knives. One of these series – Chinese Zodiac Series, which was in production since 2001.
In 2017 in this series was released Huntsman – “Year of the Rooster“.
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!
- Cadet II
2016 year brings us a new variation of White Christmas series from Victorinox, which was started one year earlier. This time it was an Evolution 10 model from Delemont collection (ex-Wenger).

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?
