Toothpick

Victorinox introduced the toothpick and tweezers in models in 1942.
Until 1960, many were carved from ivory.
Each company has a few different variations based on the sizes of the knives they fit into, and the design has changed somewhat over the years.

Victorinox

Here are the current (2011) toothpicks from a 58mm and a 91mm size Victorinox knife.
Note the angular head of the 91mm toothpick, making it fit properly into one side of the scales only.
The 58mm size toothpick will will fit into either scale on the knife, is used in the 74mm size knives and also in the SwissCard.
The "bumps" on the surfaces of the toothpicks help to hold it into the scale.
