The Victorinox Cadet II is the same model as regular Cadet, but with small blade (clip-pointed) instead of nail-file. Historically this version was produced before regular Cadet, but as sometimes happened (the same situation with Bantam / Bantam II), later on new version got a ‘Cadet‘ name while this one – Cadet II.
More interesting thing – it has not typical for this form-factor material of scales, as you can see, they’re smooth (and beautiful!)
The Victorinox Executive is a 74mm model with unique tool – orange-peeler.
Interesting fact: the same model, but with stainless steel scales has unique name – Director, all others (cellidor, wood, Alox and even gold and silver) shares the same name Executive.
In previous post we’ve reviewed not very popular model (I wouldn’t say ‘rare’..), specially created for operations with watches.
So, now we’ll review new variation of this model. It’s a former Wenger model, and it has a very unique feature – it has a non-folding blade. Uncommon practice for this manufacturer, I cannot remember even another one with fixed blade (we’re not going to discuss bayonets, by the way).
The Victorinox Executive 58 is a 2-layers model in 58-mm form-factor (it’s a logically, huh?), which looks is absolutely like Companion model, but with very minor difference – pattern of nail-file working surface.
One more fact, which I should to raise (again and again!) – it’s a Victorinox’s products’ naming convention:
- Executive 58 model later evolved into Companion
- Executive 74 model initially was called.. Companion
Almost the same model as previous one, but with Alox scales
This small knife contains unique tool which was specially developed for cigar admirers. It looks as metal plate with three circular blades (very sharp!) for fine cutting cigar’s material.
Of course, this knife is not for regular using or EDC, – just another nice collector’s item.

This knife has the same name as well-known and very popular 84-mm Pocket Pal. In fact it’s an absolutely different model. Situation when Victorinox uses the same names for different models unfortunately is typical. Voyageur, Pocket Pal, Executive, Golfer, Outdoorsman – seems, this list is endless. It’s a continuous head-ache not only for beginners, but for “Victorinox guru’s” also.
Anyway, let’s me introduce a very nice (and very old) knife – Pocket Pal 58. Just an another masterpiece from Switzerland
