Victorinox Champion Plus The Victorinox Champion Plus is a 91mm model with seven tool-layers and four tools in the scales.
It includes all of the tools in the SwissChamp of the same time period except the pliers.

The Champion Plus was first introduced in 2003 or 2004 and had the same main toolset as the earlier Champion model. It is possible it was initially sold exclusively through the WalMart chain, as the model does not appear in the regular Victorinox catalogues. This might explain the good pricing that was available, although it seems like the run was quite large. (Note: The .R designator of the model number 1.6795.R indicates it is a special run, and that the base model number 1.6795 is the designator for the SwissChamp model).

The first versions contained the original magnifying glass, did not have the 'Plus' scales (no pen or straight-pin), and had the crossbow and cross on the tang. By 2005 Walmart was clearing stock out at bargain prices and it appeared to be unavailable late 2005 through 2006, however, it reappeared in 2007 via a few dealers. In 2009 this model was still available, but there were some indications that supply was running out, however, this is speculation based on price variations. During 2015 it was still available and is quite popular with users who prefer to carry a Swiss Army Knife without pliers, perhaps as they also carry a pliers based tool.

The Champion Plus appears to be discontinued since around 2016.
