693. Settler (Model 2205)

Some Victorinox models were produced for the years and collect several modifications of the same knife (I’m talking about all possible..) looks like interesting (and very long) quest.
Usually this quest started from latest (modern) variation of some model and, later on you will find another, older one and so on, so on, so on…
Usually.. but not this time. Considered knife is known as Pioneer Settler. Simple one-layer model with just two blades. It sounds weird, but I still cannot find modern variation of this knife (0.8050.26).
Instead of it I got an oldest variation, which initially was called as Model 2205.
Red scales, old cross, clip-pointed small blade and Elinox tang. Just a combo, huh?

577. Lumberjack (Model 2231 r +)

Actually this model was released before then name Lumberjack was given to the another model with similar configuration of tools. The one discrepance between them — latest Lumberjack has combo-tool instead of cap-lifter in Model 2231 r +.

531. Bantam II

The Victorinox Bantam II is a simple 1-layer knife with two blades.

Alox version of thos knife originally was named as Bantam, but later on it was renamed, because another version of Bantam (combo-tool instead of small blade) was released. Cellidor version, AFAIK, dodn’t had own name, only digital number.

510. pre-Lumberjack (model 1240k)

This model is a knife from time, when Victorinox didn’t used dedicated names for their knives, instead this special numeric codes were used.
So, it’s a model 1240k, which can be a predecessor for a modern Lumberjack.

462. Handyman 7236maU

There are no too much information about this model in the web, even in SAKWiki, dedicated page was added just few monts before (Dec-2015).

So, this knife is a relatively rare model from 60-70s years of previous century. It has Elinox tang and shield. One of key features of this knife — technician screwdriver, which was present just on couple of models.

Unfortunately, my knife is in bad condition,  — it has reshapened blade. If you have the same model in better condition and would like to sell/trade it, — please contact me.
