Sportsman

Victorinox 84mm Sportsman with keyring The Victorinox Sportsman is a slim 84mm knife with two tool layers. It is very similar to the standard Wenger models being the same length and having a nailfile rather than the second blade - which is more common on Victorinox knives.

The Victorinox Assistant is a very similar model with the same layer tools, but excluding the toothpick, tweezers and keyring.

Scales

Standard scale options are red Cellidor or red scratch resistant nylon. Other colors and designs are available.

Variations

  1. Available without a keyring in some markets.
  2. The Ecoline (or economy) Sportsman, also known as the Sportsman II in North America, has matte finish nylon scales, rather than the standard Cellidor scales.
  3. The Assistant is very similar, but has solid scales without toothpick and tweezers and also no keyring.
  4. In 2008 Victorinox produced a set of five Sportsmen celebrating the 2008 Peking Olympics for the Chinese market. Each knife had a stylized color drawing of an Olympic event on its scale. The events were: Hurdles, Soccer, Basketball, Diving, and Table Tennis. The knives were individually numbered nnnn/2008 on the liner behind the corkscrew.
  5. A special black and white Holstein cowhide patterned Cellidor model was produced in 2009. This model appears to have been limited to the North American market.
  6. A version with a printed picture of William Tell and his son was part of a 700 year anniversary set, including a cassette tape with Swiss music. This version had no keyring.
  7. The Canadian version was first introduced in 2011, featuring a large Maple Leaf print on the top scale, with the Victorinox shield inlaid on the bottom scale.
  8. In 2018 Victorinox introduced a limited edition White Christmas Sportsman with a Christmas tree motif on the front scale and a star pattern laser etched on the main blade. This version came with a special mini-screwdriver, normally only available on some 91mm models, with a unique (to this model) white handle.

History

In 2018 Victorinox changed the design of the nail-file - See Cadet page for details.
