Victorinox Officer's Knives or Swiss Army Knifes, the typical Swiss Army Knives as everyone knows them

These are the actual Swiss Army Knives, with a length of 91 mm, toothpicks and tweezers and many functions. It starts with the basic model, the Victorinox "Spartan". This Swiss Army Knife has the 12 standard functions, which are divided into two layers.

The standard functions are composed as follows:

  • Bottle opener with screwdriver and wire stripper
  • Can opener with a small screwdriver
  • Tweezers, toothpick and ring

Almost all Victorinox army knives starting with item number 1.3 have these basic functions. There is also a model series starting with number 1.4. With these pocket knives, the Phillips screwdriver for cross-head screws is located in the place of the corkscrew. The basic model of this series is the Victorinox "Tinker" pocket knife.

Building on the 12 basic functions, a whole range of Swiss Army Knives with tools for every need has been created. The more tools there are, the more layers are needed to accommodate them, and the thicker and heavier the Swiss Army Knife becomes. The best-known model is the Victorinox “Huntsman” with 14 functions, and the largest Swiss Army Knife from Victorinox is the SwissChamp XAVT; a pure collector's model with 80 functions.
