Victorinox 58mm Companion, Red Alox with keyring. The Companion was a common 58mm Victorinox knife, having the same tools as the Classic, but with metal scales. The Companion has very thin, smooth Alox scales, compared to the Alox Classic that has thicker scales that are textured.

There was also a Companion SD version, which, like the Alox Classic SD, has a screwdriver-tip on the nail file rather than the nail-cleaner tip.

Name Disambiguation: A much older variation of the 74mm Prince was also called the Companion! Also in 2023 a new different 91mm Companion model was released.

Companion in Various Colours


The Companion has smooth Alox scales, usually red, and no scale tools due to the thickness of the scales.
The scales were available in other colours eg blue, silver, green, black.
See image and Identifiers section below.


  1. Earlier versions of the Companion were available with and without the keyring.
  2. The Companion SD's nail-file has the screwdriver, rather than the nail-cleaner, tip.


The Companion was available from the 1970s and was quite collectible due to the many attractive colour variations.
An earlier version of this knife, with the older style scissors and nail-file, was known as the Executive.

It is a discontinued model.
