661. Executive

The Victorinox Executive is a 74mm model with unique tool – orange-peeler.
Interesting fact: the same model, but with stainless steel scales has unique name – Director, all others (cellidor, wood, Alox and even gold and silver) shares the same name Executive.

493. Companion 74 (pre-Executive)

The Victorinox Companion 74 basically is the same knife as modern Executive but with several small discrepancies:
  1. It (probably) has an open rivets
  2. Scissors (probably) has one-leaf spring
  3. Nail-file with old pattern
  4. Tweezers has metallic heading (optional)
  5. There are no key-ring (this is a main difference!)

After some investigation of old Victorinox catalogs I’ve discovered, that Companion 74 changed own name to the Executive (and got keyring and hidden rivets) approximatelly at the same time as Companion 58 model was released.

Can you imagine, which name Companion 58 had before this release? The answer is: Executive. No comments. 🙂
