574. JetSetter 1

The Victorinox JetSetter is a direct descendant of Bladeless model which was introduced in 2012. It has only one difference with it’s predecessor – JetSetter model has a toothpick instead of removable pen in Bladeless model.
Seems, it was a very simple discrepance between these models, but this time Victorinox again did the best…
JetSetter wasn’t a name for one dedicated model, this word was used as name for the whole series of few new models. I’m not going to describe all these models, information about this series can be easily find on SAKWiki, I just would like to mention that my knife – is a first variation fron this series, or JetSetter 1 in other words.

551. Apprentice Alox

The Victorinox Apprentice Alox is a pretty uncommon and rare model. It’s a single-layer 93-mm model, which includes only two tools – main blade and electrician blade.
As probably you know, the same name Apprentice was used for the absolutely another model on the past as Victorinox company did many times.
P.S. Interesting fact – looks like for this knife main blade was used from Soldier 1961 model – check the ’07’ stamp on back side.

531. Bantam II

The Victorinox Bantam II is a simple 1-layer knife with two blades.

Alox version of thos knife originally was named as Bantam, but later on it was renamed, because another version of Bantam (combo-tool instead of small blade) was released. Cellidor version, AFAIK, dodn’t had own name, only digital number.

520. Sig Stgw. 57 bayonet (1957)

Information from worldbayonets.com:

Knife bayonet for use on the renowned 7.5 mm. Sturmgewehr 57 assault rifle (the Rolls Royce of assault rifles), made by the firm Schweizerische Industrie-Gesellschaft (S.I.G.).The Stgw. 57 had a very long service life, remaining in production from 1958–1983.

As the low serial number suggests, this is an early example. The “W + F” mark indicates assembly by Waffenfabrik Bern, while “Victoria Schwyz” identifies the blade supplier as the firm, Victorinox, located in Schwyz Canton.

The scabbard has the leather tab for securing in the Schmidt-Rubin belt frog. Most early scabbards had the tab removed when the Swiss changed over to the button-style frog commonly associated with the Stgw. 57 bayonet.

To avoid conflict, the Swiss government gave half of the military knife & bayonet blade production quota to Wenger and half to Victorinox. Victorinox acquired Wenger in 2005, however, continues marketing products under both trademarks.

S.I.G. produced an export model bayonet to go with export versions of the Stgw. 57. The only significant customer was Chile, who purchased 14,500 rifles chambered for the 7.62 mm. NATO cartridge. The 510–4 export bayonet differs from the domestic Stgw. 57 bayonet in minor details.

487. Hunter Pro Walnut

In 2013 Victorinox company released new knife within absolutely new form-factor. I’m talking about Hunter model. Two years later (2015) this model was released again, but with wooden scales (original had plastic ones).

One more difference between these variations – Hunter Pro Walnut has tang “SWISS MADE” on the back side of main blade, regular Hunter – doesn’t has it.
