Victorinox StayGlo Camper

StayGlow Victorinox Camper

This is a Camper that I retrofitted with StayGlow scales. Those greenish-yellow scales are fluorescent which is a nice feature. They actually glow in the dark. Other than that, it’s a regular Camper, just like my green and black ones.

Black Victorinox Camper

Black Victorinox Camper

This is another Camper, the same model I showed before (that was a green Camper), but this one is in stylish black. This one has been fitted with Plus scales (including a ballpoint pen), but this Swiss Army knife normally comes with normal scales, usually with a Camping logo on the front.

Green Victorinox Camper

Green Victorinox Camper

The Camper is a 3 layer, 91mm knife. It is usually red with a Camping logo on the front scale (metal inlay or hot stamped). This is a green one without the logo. The Camper has the same tool configuration as the Spartan, but adds a woodsaw. Prefer a black one? ;)
