The Victorinox Gourmet – another “rare bird” from 84-mm family.
Unlike this one
(sorry for the ugly pictures, hope will be changed to better ones.. someday..), it has solid corkscrew
Interesting fact: Victorinox Gourmet is a one from few models which were produced with Alox (smooth) scales and.. corkscrew, did you know it?
The Victorinox Tourist – “younger” brother of Spartan. Version without KR, toothpick/tweezers and with etched word ‘SIG’ on blade.

The Victorinox Waiter is a laconic single-layer model in 84-mm form-factor, formerly known as Bartender (in US market).
For sure, I already have several Waiters
in my collection, even with Hoffritz
inlaid on scales, but this specimen doesn’t have a toothpick/tweezers
, so it makes it relatively unique.
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 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.
– variation with rare type of scale cross. Accordingly to the information from multitool.org
, such variants of scales were produced in period from 1957
Interesting fact: related page on SAKWiki also contains picture of Fieldmaster with the same variation of scale cross.

The Victorinox Sportsman is a two-layers 84-mm model which is contains relatively rare (for this form-factor) tool – nail-file. This variation doesn’t have a key-ring.
The Victorinox Small Climber is a ‘younger brother’ of very popular Climber model but in smaller form-factor (84 mm). Unfortunatelly now, this model and many others in the same size are discontinued. Maybe this is a reason, why they are so valued by collectors.
