Automobile

An Elinox Automobile knife, model 8134maU with nickle-silver St. Christopher inlaid in place of the regular Elinox sheild logo. The Victorinox Automobile knife is an older three-layer 91mm model that often has a special St. Christopher (the patron saint of the traveller) inlay on the top scale. This knife includes the Technician's fine-screwdriver, which is no longer available on modern knives, and is one of the few knives that offers the metal saw and file in a three-layer knife.
This information sheet once supplied with the knife 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 (AN: 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.
