637. Picknicker (91mm)

The Victorinox Picknicker – old and vintage 91-mm model which is very similar to more popular Camper, but with serrated blade instead of regular blade and pruning blade instead of small blade.
From SAKWiki: In Germany this knife initially was known as Campingmesser.
Interesting (and confusing) fact: in old Victorinox catalogs (see pictures below) under Picknicker name were listed two models – with and without saw..

630. Climber

The Victorinox Climber, probably is most popular model (after Spartan, for sure). It was produced with dozens of design changes: with different scales (I mean both – colors and materials) and as limited editions..
The current variation is a little bit different from regular one – it doesn’t included regular toothpick and tweezers.
Although that variation without key-ring had a dedicated name (long-long time ago it was called as Traveller), this one also was known as regular Climber.
UPDATE: added picture from old Victorinox catalog (Victorinox_1989 Swiss Army Brands Catalog.pdf) in order to show the difference between Climber and Traveller models.

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.

624. Spartan (Unspunnenfest commemorative)

In the end of summer 2017, specially for Unspunnenfest, Victorinox company released a limited run of Spartan model with unusual ‘3D-textured‘ scales, which are looks closely similar to natural stone (as main symbol of mentioned festival).
It wasn’t a first time when such type of scales were produced, but everything looks like we’ll see this type of scales more often starting from this year (White Christmas Explorer 2017, for instance).
