The Victorinox Manager is a popular 58-mm model with 2 layers of tools. The subject of today’s article looks is very similar to this model, but with some small discrepance – instead of Phillips screwdriver it has a regular flat screwdriver.
Earlier in my blog I’ve already reviewed a knife which had a some difference from parent model – I’ve called that knife as ‘Midnite Manager II‘ (’cause I didn’t find any information about such variation). So, based on this naming covention, I propose to call toda’s knife as ‘Manager II‘ (at least untill I’ll find any confirmed information about it’s name).
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.
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.
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.
Traveller model is a “enhanced” variation of famous Climber model – it has the same tools and additionally electronic tools in scales.
From another perspective, we can call Traveller as a combination of two previously released models – Altimeter and Voyager. As we remember, Altimeter knife had all Climber tools plus digital Thermometer / Altimeter. Voyager – again, had Climber tools plus Digital clock / alarm / timer. Traveller model includes all these digital tools (and additionally – Thermometer).
Interesting fact #1: in order to fit in scales all electronic tools, this model includes specially designed (shorten!) tweezers.
Interesting fact #2: name “Traveller” was previously used by Victorinox for another knife – original Traveler was a regular Climber but without key-ring.
Victorinox CyberTool 34 (now this model also known as CyberTool M) is a 5-layer model, specially designed for computer enthusiasts with optimal (in my opinion) set of tools.
Victorinox Traveller Lite is a one from several models, which has embedded electronic module. Electronic module of this knife contains all available tools:
Also this model has “improved” scales with pen, toothpick and shortest variation of tweezers (first models of Victorinox knives with electronic tools didn’t have place for tweezers in back scale).
