From 2017 Victorinox only produced liner-locking 111mm models, however the liner-locking Nomad, which had an equivalent toolset to the Picnicker was removed from the catalogue, and the Picnicker remained, but as a liner-locking model. So, in practice the Nomad was renamed to become the Picnicker, and the original version of the Picnicker was retired!
Prior to 2017 both models had been available for several years.
