647. Fischermesser

One more knife from “fish” series – as many others, without own name. In collectors’ societies is known as “Fischermesser” (accordingly to naming from old German catalog from Victorinox).
I have another variation of this knife in my collection, but version with special design of scissors still only in my wish-list..

646. Angler Deluxe

The Victorinox Angler Deluxe is a model which was produced during relatively short period of time. It one layer wider than base Angler, this additional layer includes scissors and multipurpose hook.
Interesting fact: accordingly to SAKWiki, this model had several names through the years: at beginning it was called as Waterman, later on – it was known as Angler with Pliers.
But Angler model already included pliers, isn’t it? Maybe more logical was call this model “Angler with Scissors“?
The answer should be as “yes” either “no”. The reason of this “strange” naming was in fact, that first edition of Angler (Angler Original in other words) had scissors instead of pliers.

627. Angler Plus

The Victorinox Angler Plus – it’s an one from rare and vintage models, which were produced only during a relatively short period in the past. There are no too much information about this model, I don’t remember any official catalog with information about it. SAKWiki also still doesn’t have information about this knife (I’ve added this model to the full list, but didn’t created a new dedicated page yet).
So, Angler Plus – technically looks like regular Angler model plus additional wood-saw. Current one is a pretty vintage one with old-fashion awl and shackle.

619. Spirit XBS

In 2016 Victorinox released a “new edition” of two existing models of multi-tools: SwissTool and SwissTool Spirit. The main discrepance between old and new versions – black coating on new models (“Burnished steel“) and added crimper to the pliers. New models were released with names SwissTool BS and SwissTool Spirit XBS.

573. Master Fisherman

The Master Fisherman is a definetely rare model. There are no enough information about this model in the web (except some topics on MTO).
Even SAKWiki mentioned absolutely nothing about this unique knife (but few weeks ago one good fellow added new page with short description there! ;))
So, Master Fisherman – extended variation of Fisherman by adding pliers.

526. SwissTool

The Victorinox SwissTool was introduced in 1997. Later on several modifications with different set of tools were released (Version X – with scissors and RS – with belt-cutter). Original version (regular SwissTool) also had a lot of small modifications due to the evolution of tools. The last known (for me) modification – is a current one, when serrated blade changed own shape from regular to the wharncliffe blade.
