This is the same model, as described in previous post – Signature Lite, but now with more popular shade of translucent scales, which called SilverTech.
The Victorinox Signature Lite model, – almost the famous Classic SD, but with LED light and pen instead of regular toothpick / tweezers.
Two previous posts were about Apple JetSetter’s family − small pocket knives without blade. Earlier we’ve also reviewed some other knives from this series (I mean JetSetter at all, not only made in contribution with Apple) − JetSetter 1 and JetSetter 3.
All of them are direct descendants from old model with surprising name − Bladeless
. As I’ve already mentioned before
, the only one small difference between this model and more modern JetSetter 1
− it’s a replacement of pen
As I promised earlier, today we’ll review another model from JetSetter
series. It’s also a part of cooperation with Apple company – JetSetter Apple 32G
variation. It’s including not only bigger flash-drive
, but partially different tools.
Unfortunately, today I cannot say that will continue review this series soon – third, the latest one (JetSetter Apple 16G) is missing in my collection (for now..)
Another pretty rare model, which doesn’t has an own name and belongs to JetSetter
series. Current one was released in 2012
as part of cooperation Victorinox
company, so unofficially this model was known as JetSetter Apple 8G
Interesting fact: this is a one from few model, which doesn’t have any tang on blades (because there are no blades!!!)
To be continued..
The Victorinox Golfer Special really is a very special (and rare!) model. There are no too much information about it in internet, even SAKWiki has a very laconic article about it (picture of knife within this article looks a little bit familiar, isn’t it?). I suppose (but I don’t have any proof, of course) that this model was exclusively produced for US market only.
Which model from Victorinox knives is a most ‘equipped‘?
If we will exclude from all variety of models few ones, produced not for people but for collectors, in result we’ll get a Super Timer – ‘older brother’ of famous Swiss Champ.
Additionally to all tools from Swiss Champ
, this model has an analogue clock
has) in own scales (and missing tweezers
as result of this substitution).
Rare and nice.
Regular Victorinox Climber model with unique design from Michel Jordi.
- Super Tinker
- Climber Small
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
The Victorinox TimeKeeper – an early variation of this unusual model.
The clock has dial with two Roman numerals (XII and VI) and 10 dashes (thanks, SAKWiki!).
Interesting fact: have you ever seen such paper instruction, as one which was included to this knife? I’ve faced with such type first time…
The SwissChamp XLT isn’t so popular as EDC knife, but very valuable as collector’s item 🙂
This is an “enhanced” version of SwissChamp model, but little bit wider (11 layers instead of 8 layers in regular model).
- SwissChamp XL series
The Victorinox Scientist is a rare and highly valued collectible item.
Technically it’s the same Compact, but with magnifying glass / inline Phillips screwdriver layer instead of scissors / hook layer in Compact.
This knife has a more modern solid version of corkscrew
, but version
with earlier grooved corkscrew
is present in my collection also.
- Golfer 91 (a)
The Victorinox CyberTool series (CT) includes several modifications. Current instance has a unique feature (Light layer) and, as result contains more tools than CT34, but less than CT41.
The Victorinox Mountaineer Lite is a relatively rare 5-layers 91-mm knife, which based on more common Mountaineer model. Addon “Lite” in it’s name means (as you already know! ;)) that this knife has an additional layer with LED light and inline Phillips screwdriver.
Interesting fact: Mountaineer Lite is a unique model, which was produced only in blue transparent scales.
- Huntsman Lite
- Expedition Lite
The Victorinox Voyager Lite is a one from few models which are equipped with embedded electronic tools. As the knife’s name implies, it’s a enhanced version of Voyager model. Usually models with “Lite” addon in their names has additional tools layer, which includes LED light and Phillips screwdriver. Same is true for Voyager Lite.
As for now, this model is discontinued and replaced by more efficient Traveller Lite (which has additional electronic tools). By the way, if I’m not mistaken, there are no way to recognize (by photo only) these two models – their external look absolutely the same.
- Traveller Lite
In 2016 Victorinox company announced a new variation of popular SwissCard.
Instead of pen blade absolutely new tool (glass file) was added. Also, LED light was replaced with the short tweezers and tootpick was added to the place where tweezers were placed before.
Small. Rare. Bladeless. It’s all about Manicure I model – one of few Victorinox knives without blade.
As SAKWiki said:
Some people have reported an earlier version with the toothpick rather than the removable pen.
Compact is a thinnest 91-mm knife which includes a lot of usefull tools, in my opinion it’s an ideal choice for EDC usage.
My knife has additional print on back side of main blade, because it was a “special run” for knives enthusiats’ local forum.
CyberTool 29 is a junior model from CyberTool series, which contains minimal tools set (from this series, of course).
I’ve already described in my blog “older brothers” of this knife – CyberTool 34 and CyberTool 41, so no additional details will be in current article.
