Automobile

An Elinox Automobile knife, model 8134maU with nickle-silver St. Christopher inlaid in place of the regular Elinox sheild logo. The Victorinox Automobile model is an older three-layer 91mm SAK that usually has a special St. Christopher (the patron saint of the traveller)  inlay on the top scale. This model includes the 'Technician's fine screwdriver', which is no longer available on modern SAKs. It is one of the few models that offers the metal saw/file in a three-layer SAK.
This information sheet supplied with the Automobile illustrates the unique tool selection.
In North America this model has also been advertised as the Motorist.

Discontinued model.

Name Disambiguation:
Definitively known as the Automesser (8134ma) in German speaking countries. It is sometimes referred to as a Motorist  because of its entry in this catalog, and several official Victorinox brochures. This model should not be confused with the later Motorist model.

There is a similar larger five-layer model known as the Luxury Automobile, or Cadillac.
