676. Lumberjack Big

The Lumberjack Big (it’s an unofficial name) is one of the most mysterious Victorinox knives, which I ever seen since I’ve started collect them. There are no too much information about it on the internet (except couple of pages on multitool.org).

Technically it’s a “increased” version of 84-mm Lumberjack with added corkscrew. This model was produced during limited period of time only for European market; it had only number 3.3311 and no own name. Besides this, this knife never was present is any catalog.
So, I definitely can name this model as real rare knife, are you agree?

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..

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.

522. Champion (a)

The Victorinox Champion (type a) was a flagman of all 91-mm models before SwissChamp was released in the middle of 1980xx.

As SAKWiki mentioned, it was a very strange practice when the same name Champion was used for the different models – with corkscrew (Champion a) and Phillips screwdriver (Champion b) on the back-side. Usually models with such tools replacement got a different names (like Spartan / Tinker).

483. Master Craftsman

Technically it’s the same model as Ranger with corkscrew replaced by Phillips screwdriver, but Master Craftsman is much more rare knife.

As probably you know, Master Craftsman has several variations related to the Space program – Astronaut / Shuttle (Space Shuttle) models. All these models had inlaid logo of Space Shuttle on top scale.

My knife is an old one – it has old-style small blade, squared Phillips on the back and there are no hook / chisel / fine screwdriver at all.
