Victorinox Victoria Champion (146 fmaU)

Vintage Victorinox (Victoria) Champion

This is a Victora stamped Champion. It was probably known as model number 146 fmaU at that time (around the 1970s). Notice the long nail file on the back which shares its layer with the scissors. I also have the exact same model but with the triangular awl.

Victorinox (Victoria) Spartan (model 234) - old style reamer

Victorinox (Victoria) Spartan

This is an even older predecessor of the current Spartan model. It was made in the 1950s and it was probably known as model 234. It has a shackle (or bail) instead of a key ring, the older, triangular type reamer and a clip point small blade. Note the exposed rivets.

It differs slightly from the gold Executive I posted almost a year ago: this one has the Victoinox cross and shield on the front, it has a key ring and it has no Victoria tang stamp, making it a little younger than the gold Victoria one. …

Victorinox 75mm alox pen knife

This is a nice single layer pen knife in red smooth alox. It has only 2 blades and, measuring only 75mm, it’s a very small, thin, light weight knife. It’s almost the same as the current Secretary and Pocket Pal models, but it’s 1cm smaller. You can see the size difference in one of the …

Here is another Executive. This one has the older, thin cellidor scales and the older style scissors (with a single leaf spring made of carbon steel).

Victorinox smooth alox Executive

Alox Victorinox Executive – Gold

This is another Victorinox Executive. It’s a smooth, alox version in gold. Well, gold colored anyway (there actually is a 14kt gold version as well). It is a bit older than the green Executive I showed earlier: it has the older, single leaf type scissors which disappeared in 1975, according to Victorinox. Update: Thanks to …
