626. Wenger Soldat 1961 (1978)

Yes, my collection contains only Victorinox knives. No other trademarks, no other knives, even original / genuine Swiss ones (bye-bye, Swiza!)
But I couldn’t find any reason for myself to not add this Soldat 1961 to my collection. Will be a member of small family..

551. Apprentice Alox

The Victorinox Apprentice Alox is a pretty uncommon and rare model. It’s a single-layer 93-mm model, which includes only two tools – main blade and electrician blade.
As probably you know, the same name Apprentice was used for the absolutely another model on the past as Victorinox company did many times.
P.S. Interesting fact – looks like for this knife main blade was used from Soldier 1961 model – check the ’07’ stamp on back side.

547. Pioneer X

In 2016 Victorinox announced the new model in Alox series – well-known Pioneer but… with added scissors. The dream became a reality..
Few monts later the same model will be released as a part of Damascus series, but this is an absolutely another story – hope we’ll talk about this knife a little bit later.

543. Technician

The Victorinox Technician is a definetely rare model in 93-mm format which equipped with another rare tool – technician (or small in other words) screwdriver.
In addition to these combination of uniqueness, my knife was an official model for Swiss Federal Railways – on the top scale you can see stamped letters SBB-CFF, which means abbreviation for the name of this company in two languages, German and French accordingly:
Schweizerische Bundesbahnen (SBB),
Chemins de fer fédéraux suisses (CFF)
