The Victorinox Cadet is a very popular Alox model in 84-mm range. But this one is something relatively rare. Let’s check what SAKWiki knows:
A Copper colored model was available for a short time prior to 2006 and is considered a collector’s item.
P.S. Special thanks to Mile Živković for the help with identifying!
The Victorinox Standard – “light” version of Spartan from Marlboro advertisment company.
The Victorinox Tinker Small is a 84-mm 3-layers model.
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?
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 Tourist – “younger” brother of Spartan. Version without KR and with ‘SwissAir’ logo instead of Swiss Cross on scales.
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.
- SwissChamp X series
The Victorinox TimeKeeper – an early variation of this unusual model.
The clock has dial with two Roman numerals (XII and VI) and 10 dashes (thanks, SAKWiki!).
Interesting fact: have you ever seen such paper instruction, as one which was included to this knife? I’ve faced with such type first time…
The Master Fisherman
is a definetely rare model. There are no enough information about this model in the web (except some topics
Even SAKWiki mentioned absolutely nothing about this unique knife (but few weeks ago one good fellow added new page with short description there! ;))
So, Master Fisherman – extended variation of Fisherman by adding pliers.
Twenty years ago in honor of 100-years jubilee, company Victorinox
announced a special run of limited series “100th Anniversary (1897-1997)”
. This set included a two models:
I found first model from this list in mint condition, second one very hardly used..
