0101 – Victorinox Master Craftsman (Dutch Air Force)

This is a blue 91mm Master Craftsman. On the front it reads “KLU EIGENDOM” which means “property of royal netherlands air force”. These knives were part of the pilot’s so called “Bail-Out Kit” with stuff they could use to survive in the event of ejecting or crash landing in a hostile area.

This is a red 85mm Wenger PocketGrip. It has non folding pliers, a hex bit driver and bits.

A cartridge holding six hex bits is located under the handle:

These bits go in a bit extender that is on the bottom side of the knife:

The (magnetic) extender holding a bit can be placed in the metal plier casing on the back of the knife, like this:

0046 – Victorinox Modeler

The 91mm Modeler is a discontinued knife with an uncommon combination of tools. Its key features are the magnifier, inline Phillips screwdriver, scissors and metal saw/file. Combined with two knife blades, can opener, cap lifter, awl and corkscrew this might just be one of the most useful of all Swiss Army Knifes!

The scissors have the adjustable screw pivot, which Victorinox stopped using in 1991. Therefore, this knife is at least 25 years old! I’m very happy to have found one completely new in box!

0039 – Wenger Director (SOLD)

This knife is no longer in my collection

The 85mm Director is one of the more remarkable models from Wenger, with its most characteristic tool being a telescoping pointer which can be used during a presentation.

The pointer is about 30 cm when fully extended.

There are only a few models that have this old fashioned telescoping pointer: the Director, the Manager and the Pointer. Wenger also has a model with a laser pointer.
