645. Bladeless

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 by toothpick.

644. JetSetter Apple 32G

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..)

643. JetSetter Apple 8G

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 with.. Apple 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..

642. Golfer Special

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.

641. Super Timer

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  (like TimeKeeper has) in own scales (and missing tweezers as result of this substitution).
Rare and nice.

615. Manager II

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).

585. SwissChamp XXLT

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.

575. TimeKeeper

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…

550. SwissChamp XLT

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).

528. Scientist

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.

496. Mountaineer Lite

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.

494. Voyager 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.

476. Manicure I

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.

Now I can confirm that both versions are exists and when I’ll make good-quality picture of Manicure II (version with toothpick), I’ll update appropriate article on SAKWiki.

469. Compact

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.
