641. Super Timer

Which model from Victorinox knives is a most ‘equipped‘?
If we will exclude from all variety of models few ones, produced not for people but for collectors, in result we’ll get a Super Timer – ‘older brother’ of famous Swiss Champ.
Additionally to all tools from Swiss Champ, this model has an analogue clock  (like TimeKeeper has) in own scales (and missing tweezers as result of this substitution).
Rare and nice.

524. Wild Turkey

The Wild Turkey is an unique knife produced specially for SMKW company in 2009. This is a last one from all 4 knives from this series in my collection.

Technically this knife is a Hiker, but with usual (for this series) tools replacement – it has technical screwdriver instead of reamer.

495. Whitetail Deer

This knife is a another member of series from 4 unusual knives, which were made specially for SMKW company by Victorinox in 2009.

Technically this model is a modified Hiker with added “Lite layer”, which includes LED light and inline Phillips screwdriver. Another one difference is a common for all knives in this series – backside reamer was replaced by a technician screwdriver.

Interesting fact: this knife includes three different screwdrivers (also we can add to this list 2 screwdrivers, which are part of cap-lifter and can-opener). So, in result we have five (5!) screwdrivers in one knife. Seems, it’s an achievement! Except Whitetail Deer, only Master Electrician contains the same amount of screwdrivers (and both knives were produced exclusively for SMKW company!)
