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.

0005 – Victorinox Vagabond (alox)

This is a small wonder: a lot of usefull tools in a very small 4 layered 58 mm Swiss Army Knife. The scissors and cap lifter have their own layer, but the other tools share one layer (meaning there is no liner between them). This makes the knife extra thin, but the downside is that tools may rub against each other.

The alox Vagabond is made exclusively for Swiss Bianco, a US/Canada based dealer. This olive drab (green) alox Vagabond is limited to 100 pieces.

0001 – Victorinox Compact

The Compact is actually the first Swiss Army Knife I bought!

The Compact is the thinnest 91 mm model to include the scissors.
