Early Alox model that has a ' Technician's Screwdriver' in place of the regular Can-opener tool. The Victorinox Technician is a less common two-layer 93mm Alox scaled knife that is very similar to the Pioneer and the Electrician.
The Technician is one of the very few models that has a small narrow screwdriver known as the Technician's screwdriver, and one of the few that does not include the standard can-opener tool.


Layer Tools


Silver chequered Alox scales with a plain silver cross (same as the vintage Electrician models).


This model is shown in a 1970s catalogue page. Some samples with blades dated 98 have been known, indicating this model was still being produced, probably until at least the year 1999 or 2000. However, it is fairly rare and difficult to acquire.


  1. This model was produced with an Elinox, as well as a Victorinox, tang-stamp. Early versions have brass liners.
  2. An official Swiss Railway version: The silver Alox scales feature the plain cross and have SBB-CFF stamped in a panel on the top scale.
  3. Samples with blades dated 98 have been found (these versions would be using overstock of Soldier blades).
  4. A red Alox scaled model with advertising on top scale for BRUTSCH RUEGGER. This company appears to have comissioned every 93mm Swiss Cross Alox model produced and branded them with their name.
