571. Carpenter

I’ve started to collect Victorinox knives approximatelly 5 years ago. I didn’t thought that probably, once I will say – “I have them all! :)”
Of course I’m talking about possible situation when some series or some set of models will be completely present in my collection…
One day this dream made a reality. Few months before (maybe 1 year? – I don’t remember exactly) I’ve bought a last member of my 111-mm models. It was a model named Carpenter. For the long months it was a my Unicorn-SAK, I’ve tried to find it everywhere… Moreover – once I won this knife on eBay auction, but unfortunatelly, parcel with this knife was lost on it’s way to the Ukraine. Second attempt was more lucky and I’ve decided that mission completed, my collection of 111-mm is full. But again, it was 1 year before, I didn’t supposed that when I will post info about this knife in my blog, Victorinox released a lot of new 111-models in 2017.

So, for now (2017-July) my collection still have a lot of missed knives… Seems, this story will be continued.

499. Adventurer (BSA)

The Victorinox Adventurer is a very old and popular 111-mm knife with simple set of tools. Usually it was produced with plain main blade only, but specially for BSA, it was released with serrated blade (version with plain blade and BSA print also known, but I still haven’t it 🙁

P.S. Usually I’m trying add to my posts some related images (from old catalogs etc.), but just today I’ve mentioned that in this brochure (see image below) from Victorinox, Fieldmaster model annonced as Huntsman. Is it mistake, what do you think?

Victorinox Fireman is a 4-layers 111-mm knife. It was produced with regular and one-hand blade. Additionaly, version with OH serrated blade (because version with OH plain blade also was available in US market!) has a “limited” series – Black Blade, where main blade was black-oxide coated.
