536. Compact – VSAKCS 2009

The next model in my collection from Victorinox Swiss Army Knife Collectors Society (VSAKCS) is a Compact, anniversary knife for 2009 (hope that my attentive readers understood that I’m looking for models from 2007 to 2009 years 🙂

This time VSAKCS used a regular model, but with unusual wooden scales. Looks beautifull, isn’t it?

494. Voyager Lite

The Victorinox Voyager Lite is a one from few models which are equipped with embedded electronic tools. As the knife’s name implies, it’s a enhanced version of Voyager model. Usually models with “Lite” addon in their names has additional tools layer, which includes LED light and Phillips screwdriver. Same is true for Voyager Lite.

As for now, this model is discontinued and replaced by more efficient Traveller Lite (which has additional electronic tools). By the way, if I’m not mistaken, there are no way to recognize (by photo only) these two models – their external look absolutely the same.

469. Compact

Compact is a thinnest 91-mm knife which includes a lot of usefull tools, in my opinion it’s an ideal choice for EDC usage.

My knife has additional print on back side of main blade, because it was a “special run” for knives enthusiats’ local forum.

456. Traveller

Traveller model is a “enhanced” variation of famous Climber model – it has the same tools and additionally electronic tools in scales.

From another perspective, we can call Traveller as a combination of two previously released models – Altimeter and Voyager. As we remember, Altimeter knife had all Climber tools plus digital Thermometer / AltimeterVoyager – again, had Climber tools plus Digital clock / alarm / timer. Traveller model includes all these digital tools (and additionally – Thermometer).

Interesting fact #1: in order to fit in scales all electronic tools, this model includes specially designed (shorten!) tweezers.

Interesting fact #2: name “Traveller” was previously used by Victorinox for another knife – original Traveler was a regular Climber but without key-ring.

404. DofE Pocket Tool

The Victorinox Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Pocket Tool is a very unique knife. It was developed for using by young people, so it has rounded main blade (by the way, currently it’s only one 91-mm model with such type of blade).This knife is very similar to very popular Compact model (or later Golfer 91-mm). There are two main differences:
– rounded blade;
– Phillips screwdriver instead of corkscrew.DofE is still available in some European markets, but looks that in near future it will become a relatively rare model.
