Bijou

Victorinox like new Bijou Models, one regular and one SD version. The Victorinox Bijou is a 58mm model that is nearly identical to the popular Classic. The Bijou offers the same basic tool selection, but without the keyring. Like the Classic-SD, there is also a Bijou-SD that has the screwdriver tip, rather than the cleaner tip on the nailfile. US importer Swiss Army Brands originally sold this knife under the Commander name. Discontinued model.

Variations

  2. Scale Variations - many variations in color and material, not all listed
    1. Mother of Pearl Bijou with a nail cleaning tip.
    2. The RocKnives Series based on the Bijou/Classic was introduced in the late 1988, or early 90s. and includes six different Bijou models with natural stone scales without toothpick or tweezers (see Identifiers section).
    3. A series with semi-precious stone scales without toothpick or tweezers, was also produced. These are reported to have used scales from a small US manufacturer in Florida.

History

The original Bijou was first introduced around 1980. The SD variation was first introduced in 1987. Both versions are discontinued. It is not known when either was discontinued, but the original was likely phased out around '87 when the SD was introduced.

While discontinued as an official model, it is still possible that knives with this configuration would be available as advertising knives or in luxury scaled offerings; however they would probably just be labeled as variations of the Classic rather than as a Bijou.

SABI (Swiss Army Brands International) originally sold this knife under the name Commander.
