|The Victorinox Sportsman is an 84mm length knife that is quite slim with only 2 tool layers. This knife has all the classic Swiss Army Knife tools except the scissors (which are no longer being manufactured for 84mm knives as of 2008). The Victorinox Assistant is very similar, it has the same layer tools, but excludes the toothpick, tweezers and keyring. May only exist in economy version (2.3800).|
