679. Locksmith OH

Not only Forester model got a plain one-hand blade in 2017 year (this is a sad date, when whole slide-lock 111-mm series was withdrawn), as you can see from pictures below, Locksmith model now also available with such kind of blade (..and glamour red color of scales also).

678. Forester OH

I already have several Forester models in my collection, – all of them has the same (almost the same) tools-set, but with little differences.
It’s a popular model, no doubt, so it’s looks logical that Victorinox produced this model with different variations: with and without one-hand opening, with plain and serrated blades. Even once Forester was produced with one-hand and not-serrated blade, it was a definitely unique and rare variation (because of small and episodic run), which is highly valued…
In 2017 Victorinox did a big surprise – Forester with one-hand plain blade was released again, but this time with DualGrip scales.

594. Forester

The Victorinox Forester isn’t rare model. Even One Hand Forester model. But One Hand Forester with plain blade — it’s a rare bird. I even say — it’s an «extemely rare bird». But it’s true for the past, because in 2017 Victorinox re-launched variation One Hand Forester with plain blade (and Dual-Grip scales).
So, I will call my Forester as «rare bird from the past» 🙂

529. Soldier 2008 (Fu Br 41)

This version of Victorinox Soldier 2008 (militarian version of civilian Trailmaster) I bought accidentally here, in Ukraine. I was surprised with a logo, printed on top scale — something which was called a «Fu Br 41«.
After short (very short) investigation I founf information about this Swiss army unit — Command Support Brigade 41.
In Deutch it sounds more dramatically (I’m not sure that can pronounce it ;):
Die Führungsunterstützungsbrigade 41 
Besides that, it’s a regular SAK 2008 (year of production is 2011).

503. Forester OH

The Victorinox Forester is a 3-layer 111-mm which was produced in several variations — with One-hand and regular blades, with standart neylon and Dual-Grip scales. Current instance is a Ohe-hand variation with serrated blade and usual black scales.

Interesting  fact: version with One-hand regular (non-serrated) blade was produced during a very short period and for now it’s a highly collectible item!

426. Parachutist OH

One-handed version of Parachutist model originally was known as Rescuer. Later on, probably when Rescue Tool model was introduced, was renamed to the current name — OH Parachutist. It almost the same as regular Parachutist, but with the serrated blade.
Another interesting thing — older shape of opening hole on the main blade (more elliptical than modern one).

423. Hunter XS

Hunter XS is a «junior» version from Hunter series (it also includes Hunter XT and Hunter XS-CS), which was introduced in 2011. It has very minimal tool-set and doesn’t have standard openers’ layer like other 111-mm models (except Hunter series, seems only Cheese knife doesn’t contains this layer).
So, very unique and laconic 2-layers knife with few tools — OH plain blade, gutting blade and corkscrew. That’s it, no tweezers, no toothpick. Dual density scales (also known as Dual-Grip), but in unusual color — orange/black.

422. Dual Pro

Dual Pro knife is a 3-layer 111-mm model which is a relatively new (was introduced in 2010 in US market). This model exists only in one variation — with Dual-Grip scales, so there no tweezers and toothpick.
It has two blades, both for one-hand operations. One of them is a well-known serrated blade as many other models (like OH Trekker, OH Forester) has, another one — special gutting blade (as far as I know it was specially developed for hunters). Both blade are serrated. Due to the shape of these blades this knife is not so comfortable for regular use — closed blade doesn’t allow well fit knife in your hand. My opinion — good for collectors, but bad choice for regular using.
