0115 – Victorinox CyberClipper (mod)

This 91mm CyberClipper is a mod I made myself. It extends the Clipper model with the bit driver set from the CyberTool.

Some picture from the manufacturing:

0112 – Victorinox SwissChamp XLT

This 91mm SwissChamp XLT is the big one, the one that has it all! Lots of tools while still small enough to carry in your pocket!

0102 – Victorinox Champion (model 246fmaU)

This is an old model of the Champion, with a bail and a long nail file. The combination of long nail file and bail dates this knife in the sixties.

This vintage Champion also has aluminium tipped tweezers and a square phillips screwdriver with file.

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.

0083 – Wenger PocketGrip (SOLD)

This knife is no longer in my collection

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:

Apart from the pliers and bit-driver set, the knife also has some of the more common Swiss Army Knife tools:

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!

0015 – Victorinox Handyman

If you want a lot of usefull tools like in the Swiss Champ but you want it to be a little less bulky, the Handyman is the knife for you! It’s basically a Swiss Champ without a fish scaler, magnifier, inline philips screwdriver and without the “plus-scales” (so no ballpoint pen and straight pin), making it significantly thinner.

0011 – Victorinox Swiss Champ (demolished)

This knife is no longer in my collection

This 91mm Swiss Champ is a true masterpiece, almost everything you may need in one big but still very manageable knife! The only thing that surprisingly is missing is a nail file, not even a small one on the multipurpose hook!

the Swiss Champ compared with the Handyman and the Compact…

0006 – Wenger Matterhorn Plus (SOLD)

This knife is no longer in my collection

The Matterhorn Plus is one of the biggest models from Wenger. It has 9 layers, and only the Tool Chest Plus and the Giant are bigger. It is discontinued. Its key features are the magnifier, the universal wrench and the orienteering tool.

The orienteering tool has a ruler with inches and centimeters, and it has a small removable compass. Wenger introduced the orienteering tool in late 1985. Since then six different versions of the orienteering tool were made, so by the type of orienteering tool you can date the knife. The one on my Matterhorn Plus is the first generation, and because the second generation was already introduced in 1986 this dates my knife at 1985 or 1986.
