The 1970s 91mm Victorinox Outdoorsman preceded the more common Marlboro Outdoorsman configuration.  The knife may have been only distributed in a limited number of markets. The Outdoorsman 'Original' is a 91mm Victorinox knife with 5 tool layers. This model is distinguished by it's small Prunner blade and fully serrated main blade, these features appear on very few models. This original tool configuration of the Outdoorsman is no longer very common, and can be quite hard to find.

Discontinued model.

Name Disambiguation: The Outdoorsman name has been attached to many different models over the years. The most well known is a later model unofficially known as the Marlboro Outdoorsman since most examples of this model were sold through the Marlboro cigarette company's rewards catalog, and are easy to come by.
