Specially for East Asian market Victorinox company produced a lot of special runs of their knives. One of these series – Chinese Zodiac Series, which was in production since 2001.
In 2017 in this series was released Huntsman – “Year of the Rooster“.
The Victorinox Standard – “light” version of Spartan from Marlboro advertisment company.
The Victorinox “flagman” model from 91-mm series – SwissChamp.
This variation has wooden scales, but without place-holders for “plus-tools”: stainless pin and pen.
- Champion (Plus)
- SwissChamp’s series
Relatively old and vintage variation of Fieldmaster with ‘Hoffritz‘ print on scales and tang on main blade.
The Victorinox Climber with non-typical scales’ color.
Current model is an another example of strange logic of Victorinox distributors, that was discussed many times (with no success).
In 1990-x they’re released a series of some Victorinox knives for the “Boy Scouts of America” organization. In this series were included next knives: Adventurer, Classic, Sentry, Tinker, Explorer (was listed by some dealers as Yeoman!), Climber and Pocked Pal (was released with name FeatherWeight).
Today’s hero also was a part of this huge series, but with name of different knife – Huntsman (actually it’s a Fieldmaster, no doubt).
Carl Victorinox, why?
The Victorinox Fisherman – old and vintage model with shackle, clip-point small blade and squared Phillips screwdriver with nail-file.
model is a one from few models, which all are part of series “Famous Mountains”
. Actually, all of them are regular models, but all has serrated blade
instead regular one
.. and new name instead of habitual one.
So, – McKinley, also known as Tinker – third item from “Famous Mountains” series in my collection.
The Victorinox SwissChamp XXLT knife is a one of fews, produced specially for
stupid people collectors. Moreover – it’s a one from three (or four?) models which has extremely rare tool – Butane Lighter.
Short summary: nice, valuable, not suitable for EDC.
