- Executive 74
- Companion 74
- It (probably) has an open rivets
- Scissors (probably) has one-leaf spring
- Nail-file with old pattern
- Tweezers has metallic heading (optional)
- There are no key-ring (this is a main difference!)
After some investigation of old Victorinox catalogs I’ve discovered, that Companion 74 changed own name to the Executive (and got keyring and hidden rivets) approximatelly at the same time as Companion 58 model was released.
Can you imagine, which name Companion 58 had before this release? The answer is: Executive. No comments. 🙂
As epilogue, some photos from old Victorinox catalogs:
The Escort 74 is a not so popular knife as it’s smaller brother Escort 58. Again it’s the same case, when Victorinox re-use existing model’s name for another knife (like did it for Companion, Pocket Pal, Executive, Waiter, Climber and many-many others).
This knife can be described as enlarged copy of Escort 58 – almost the same tools (no toothpick / tweezers), but in comparison with smaller model, this knife might have different scales – cellidor, stainless steel, alox..
