659. Classic SD

Few days ago I’ve published article about “unknown” edition of Classic SD. Approximately in 10 minutes after I’ve shared post on Facebook, I got an answer about knife’s model. Maybe this time I’ll be lucky too? (by the way, I have few other Classics, which still not identified…)
Update: It’s an Classic SD Argyle from LE2010. Thanks, Irineo Reyes!

643. JetSetter Apple 8G

Another pretty rare model, which doesn’t has an own name and belongs to JetSetter series. Current one was released in 2012 as part of cooperation Victorinox with.. Apple company, so unofficially this model was known as JetSetter Apple 8G.
Interesting fact: this is a one from few model, which doesn’t have any tang on blades (because there are no blades!!!)

623. Commander (pre-Bijou)

Permanent misunderstanding and mess with Victorinox‘ knives naming – it’s probably a most annoying thing for collectors (personally for me – it’s an absolute evil).

Today’s knife had at least several different names during for the years.
The last modern one was called Bijou – from the technical view it’s the same as popular Classic, but without key-ring (also version Bijou SD exists whisch is descended from Classic SD accordingly).
Version, which was predeccesor of Bijou we know as Commander (at least in the USA, where it was sold by Swiss Army Brands Inc.), but interesting fact – in old Hoffritz catalogs it was listed as Tinker (11096 / 11207). Another thing – variation with and without toothpick/tweezers also had the same name Commander. Besides that, Commander was released as either with open (current one) or closed rivets.

616. Executive 58 (pre-Companion 58)

The Victorinox Executive 58 is a 2-layers model in 58-mm form-factor (it’s a logically, huh?), which looks is absolutely like Companion model, but with very minor difference – pattern of nail-file working surface.
One more fact, which I should to raise (again and again!) – it’s a Victorinox’s products’ naming convention:
  1. Executive 58 model later evolved into Companion
  2. Executive 74 model initially was called.. Companion

That’s it.

615. Manager II

The Victorinox Manager is a popular 58-mm model with 2 layers of tools. The subject of today’s article looks is very similar to this model, but with some small discrepance – instead of Phillips screwdriver it has a regular flat screwdriver.

Earlier in my blog I’ve already reviewed a knife which had a some difference from parent model – I’ve called that knife as ‘Midnite Manager II‘ (’cause I didn’t find any information about such variation). So, based on this naming covention, I propose to call toda’s knife as ‘Manager II‘ (at least untill I’ll find any confirmed information about it’s name).
