Victorinox CyberTool 34

Victorinox CyberTool 34

The CyberTool 34 is the CyberTool 29‘s bigger brother, adding scissors, pliers and a multi purpose hook. This particular one has translucent onyx scales. I thought those scales would be translucent black, but they turned out to be more like reddish brown… These scales have a slot for a small set of tweezers, like the … Read more

Victorinox CyberTool 29

The Victorinox CyberTool 29 was introduced in 2000. It adds plus scales and a Bit driver to the basic Spartan model. The bit driver and bit holder are unique to the CyberTool models (and some collectors knives like the SwissChamp XAVT).

Victorinox Climber (Migros)

Victorinox Climber with Swiss flags

This Climber has unusual scales. They are cellidor with a hot stamped shield (not a metal inlay) and a couple of Swiss flags and edelweiss flowers printed on them. Switzerland is printed in 4 different languages. These climbers were a special order for Migros, a large Swiss supermarket/wholesale chain. Update: this SAK has found a … Read more

Victorinox Climber SilverTech

Victorinox SilverTech Climber

You can never have too many Climbers :) The SilverTech scales on this Swiss Army Knife were introduced in 2009 (I believe). They are colorless translucent cellidor scales that are painted silver on the inside, giving the scales a high tech, polished steel look. While they look pretty futuristic, I haven’t decided if I like … Read more

Victorinox Climber with StayGlow scales

StayGlow Victorinox Climber

More StayGlow scales! The Climber is (was?) one of only a few models available with glow-in-the-dark StayGlow scales. You can see the pins and bushes through the scales, unlike my StayGlow Camper. A bit odd, that :)

Victorinox Climber with long nail file

Victorinox Climber with long nail file

This Climber has a long nail file on the back instead of the multi purpose hook the current Climber model has. It’s an interesting knife: the long nail file is a very old tool and I believe this Climber is the only recent/current model available with the nail file. This model is mentioned in the … Read more

Victorinox De Luxe - burgundy, with gift box

Victorinox De Luxe in Burgundy

The Victorinox “De Luxe” is a luxury model, made from 1980 to 1999. It is almost the same as the very common Classic, but has enameled brass scales with a marble pattern and gold trim. The scales are squared off at the top and bottom, so these knives are slightly smaller than the Classic (56mm … Read more
