History 

The original Fisherman  model was available with a corkscrew or a back-side Phillips. The corkscrew variation became known as the Angler  (featuring scissors) at least as early as 1985, as it appeared in the Victorinox/SABI* catalogues for that year.

This original Angler configuration was still in place in the early 1990s, several years after the introduction of the pliers with the SwissChamp in 1986. In the 1992-1994 time frame, Victorinox also made a version of the Angler called the Angler with Pliers. This knife included the pliers as well as the scissors, implying that when this tool was made, the standard Angler configuration was still in production and the pliers were the add-on tool. This configuration is sometimes known as the Deluxe Angler or Angler with Scissors.

The modern Angler configuration with pliers was introduced later.
