Red Nylon or red/black dual density
The scales in the original model contained a grey release button for the slide lock.


Current liner-lock model available in two variations:

  • Red nylon scales, plain edged blade, toothpick and tweezers
  • Dual density red/black scales, with one handed opening blade, no toothpick or tweezers

  • A black handled promotional edition of the original model  for Simmons Scope features the company name and logo on the top scale in gold print, and the Victorinox shield logo on the bottom in gold print.


This model was one of the original 111mm slide-lock models. However, from 2017 Victorinox only produced liner-locking 111mm models, so the plain-edge bladed, nylon scaled Alpineer was converted to be liner-locking.
Also as part of the 111mm model restructuring in 2017, an OHO variation of the liner-locking Sentinel (0.8321.MWC), which had an equivalent toolset to this model (blade, corkscrew) was renamed to be a variation of the Alpineer.
