529. Soldier 2008 (Fu Br 41)

This version of Victorinox Soldier 2008 (militarian version of civilian Trailmaster) I bought accidentally here, in Ukraine. I was surprised with a logo, printed on top scale — something which was called a «Fu Br 41«.
After short (very short) investigation I founf information about this Swiss army unit — Command Support Brigade 41.
In Deutch it sounds more dramatically (I’m not sure that can pronounce it ;):
Die Führungsunterstützungsbrigade 41 
Besides that, it’s a regular SAK 2008 (year of production is 2011).

503. Forester OH

The Victorinox Forester is a 3-layer 111-mm which was produced in several variations — with One-hand and regular blades, with standart neylon and Dual-Grip scales. Current instance is a Ohe-hand variation with serrated blade and usual black scales.

Interesting  fact: version with One-hand regular (non-serrated) blade was produced during a very short period and for now it’s a highly collectible item!

481. Dual Pro X

Victorinox Dual Pro X is a 3-layers 111-mm knife, which was available only with Dual-Grip scales, was produced during short period of time (2010 — ???).
It’s very similar to model Dual Pro (but has plain blade instead of serrated one and Phillips screwdriver instead of corkscrew).
Another similar knife — it’s a DAK 2010, almost the same tools (except serrated blade) and scales (which are the same as in GAK 111).

426. Parachutist OH

One-handed version of Parachutist model originally was known as Rescuer. Later on, probably when Rescue Tool model was introduced, was renamed to the current name — OH Parachutist. It almost the same as regular Parachutist, but with the serrated blade.
Another interesting thing — older shape of opening hole on the main blade (more elliptical than modern one).

423. Hunter XS

Hunter XS is a «junior» version from Hunter series (it also includes Hunter XT and Hunter XS-CS), which was introduced in 2011. It has very minimal tool-set and doesn’t have standard openers’ layer like other 111-mm models (except Hunter series, seems only Cheese knife doesn’t contains this layer).
So, very unique and laconic 2-layers knife with few tools — OH plain blade, gutting blade and corkscrew. That’s it, no tweezers, no toothpick. Dual density scales (also known as Dual-Grip), but in unusual color — orange/black.

422. Dual Pro

Dual Pro knife is a 3-layer 111-mm model which is a relatively new (was introduced in 2010 in US market). This model exists only in one variation — with Dual-Grip scales, so there no tweezers and toothpick.
It has two blades, both for one-hand operations. One of them is a well-known serrated blade as many other models (like OH Trekker, OH Forester) has, another one — special gutting blade (as far as I know it was specially developed for hunters). Both blade are serrated. Due to the shape of these blades this knife is not so comfortable for regular use — closed blade doesn’t allow well fit knife in your hand. My opinion — good for collectors, but bad choice for regular using.
