Victorinox 84mm watch-opener

The Victorinox watch-opener (or watch-case opener) is an unusual knife. It is related to the Bantam model, but instead of the combo tool it has a special watch-case opener blade. This dedicated blade, which is not sharpened, is used to open the back of watches that use a snap-back case.

Victorinox 111mm Swiss Army knives

This is a picture of 6 very different 111mm Swiss Army knife models made by Victorinox.

Victorinox 111mm Swiss Army knivesTop left is a Jumpmaster. This model usually has black nylon scales, but this one is red which is rather uncommon.
Next to the Jumpmaster is the first version of the one-hand German Army knife, with the older, oval shaped thumb hole and a low-profile lock release.
The next one is the 2010 Dutch Army knife. This was the first Victorinox knife with 2 liner locks and 2 liner-locking blades, both featuring one-handed opening. This knife is pretty hard to find.
Next to the DAK is the most basic version of the Sentinel: it’s not one-handed, has a plain edge blade and has no corkscrew and no pocket clip.
The next one is an uncommon 90 ARMEE knife which was offered to Swiss Soldiers during the short period between the old Alox Soldier and the new 2008 Swiss Army knife (basically a one-hand Trekker).
The last knife is a red one-hand Trailmaster. This is basically a Trekker but with red scales and a different name (aimed at the European market I believe).

These knives (and more ;) ) will be for sale at EDC Source soon!

Victorinox Jumpmaster

This is a red Jumpmaster. It’s a 111mm liner locking Swiss Army Knife with 4 layers. It’s one of only a few liner lock knives available with red nylon scales. It’s also one of a few knives containing a serrated emergency blade or seat belt cutter.
