The Victorinox Scientist is a rare and highly valued collectible item.
Technically it’s the same Compact, but with magnifying glass / inline Phillips screwdriver layer instead of scissors / hook layer in Compact.
This knife has a more modern solid version of corkscrew, but version with earlier grooved corkscrew is present in my collection also.

Additionaly, Victorinox released few “tool sets”, which includes SwissChamp and some additional tools. One of them is a subject of current review:

452. Alpineer (Passenger)

Few posts earlier I’ve mentioned that once (at least!) Victorinox company produced old models of knives with the names of existing, but different models.

The hero of current post – Passenger. Definetely rare knife, but now this knife becomes a Alpineer (by the way, original Alpineer is a 111-mm knife with another set of tools) and it makes it more rare than regular one.

N.B. In “Canada series” only this knife hasn’t tang “Economy” on the back side of main blade, two others – Scouter (Recruit) and Hiker (Spartan) – has this tang.
