Although this model has one of the more minimal tool sets of the Victorinox models, with only a single layer of tools, it offers many functions and is very popular as a very practical configuration for a minimalist pocket knife and for travel.
An earlier Alox scaled knife more closely resembling the Alox Bantam was also known as the Waiter.
- Large blade
- Combo Tool - Which functions as a bottle opener/cap lifter, can-opener, screwdriver and wire stripper
The Waiter comes with standard red Cellidor scales. Other colours may also be available.
The original Waiter was an Alox handled model without the corkscrew (Model: 0.1300.26 - Silver ribbed Alox), and featured a standard cap-lifter, rather than the combo-opener tool. This model was originally identified with model numbers 2230r+ (red) and 2230s+ (silver). It is now generally referred to as an early version of the Alox Bantam, as the model was renamed after the cap-lifter was replaced with the combo-opener tool.
Early Cellidor models came with a grooved corkscrew.
Even older (Victoria) versions were known as model no. 247k.
The Waiter has also been known as the Bartender.
- The Waiter was once offered with Cellidor economy scales, and did not include a toothpick or tweezers.
- Later there was an economy Waiter sold with nylon scales, that did include the toothpick and tweezers.
- From 2015 Victorinox made special scales on standard knives for the Ukraine Victorinox Ukraine Edition
