The Victorinox Classic with interesting pattern on scales, which displays Edelweiss flowers. This series were introduced in 20XX and includes a 5-colors set. Current one is red.
The Victorinox Waiter is a laconic single-layer model in 84-mm form-factor, formerly known as Bartender (in US market).
For sure, I already have several Waiters
in my collection, even with Hoffritz
inlaid on scales, but this specimen doesn’t have a toothpick/tweezers
, so it makes it relatively unique.
The Victorinox Climber
, probably is most popular model (after Spartan
, for sure). It was produced with dozens of design changes: with different scales (I mean both – colors
) and as limited editions
The current variation is a little bit different from regular one – it doesn’t included regular toothpick and tweezers.
Although that variation without key-ring
had a dedicated name (long-long time ago it was called as Traveller
), this one also was known as regular Climber
UPDATE: added picture from old Victorinox catalog (Victorinox_1989 Swiss Army Brands Catalog.pdf) in order to show the difference between Climber and Traveller models.
– variation with rare type of scale cross. Accordingly to the information from multitool.org
, such variants of scales were produced in period from 1957
Interesting fact: related page on SAKWiki also contains picture of Fieldmaster with the same variation of scale cross.

The Victorinox Angler Plus – it’s an one from rare and vintage models, which were produced only during a relatively short period in the past. There are no too much information about this model, I don’t remember any official catalog with information about it. SAKWiki also still doesn’t have information about this knife (I’ve added this model to the full list, but didn’t created a new dedicated page yet).
So, Angler Plus – technically looks like regular Angler model plus additional wood-saw. Current one is a pretty vintage one with old-fashion awl and shackle.
Yes, my collection contains only Victorinox knives. No other trademarks, no other knives, even original / genuine Swiss ones (bye-bye, Swiza!)
But I couldn’t find any reason for myself to not add this Soldat 1961
to my collection. Will be a member of small family
The Victorinox Sportsman is a two-layers 84-mm model which is contains relatively rare (for this form-factor) tool – nail-file. This variation doesn’t have a key-ring.
