Few posts before I’ve presented 111-mm model (Rucksack) with World Globe logo instead of Swiss cross on its scales.
Today’s model is much smaller (Classic SD), but also has this sign – World Globe.
The Victorinox Cadet is a very popular Alox model in 84-mm range. But this one is something relatively rare. Let’s check what SAKWiki knows:
A Copper colored model was available for a short time prior to 2006 and is considered a collector’s item.
P.S. Special thanks to Mile Živković for the help with identifying!
The Victorinox Standard – “light” version of Spartan from Marlboro advertisment company.
[sarcasmMode] Innovations from Victorinox, – just add new color scales and… Hooray! New model was released! [/sarcasmMode]

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).

The Victorinox Forester is a popular 111-mm model with 3 layers of tools. It has several variations, related to using standard neylon or modern Dual-Grip scales, also it was produced with regular plain or One-Hand serrated blade. Version with One-Hand regular blade is also known, but a definetely rare one.
Victorinox Nomad has a variety of modifications – it was produced with regular and Dual-Grip scales, with One-hand and regular blades. Besides this, very interesting modification of Nomad was produced for german company Garant.
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 – ???).

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
