Victorinox Camper. Picture by jazzbass.

The Victorinox Camper is a popular 91mm model with three tool layers, that has a long history. The top scale usually features the camping/tent logo, although this is not shown in the images on this page.

Name Disambiguation: The Camper name has been used for other models as can be seen in this older US catalogue, for a model that we would nowadays call the Spartan.

Scale Tools


Red Cellidor or Nylon usually with the camping logo. Other colours available.
The camping logo has been through several revisions over the years. The first iteration was a nickel silver inlay, then stainless steel inlay, later it was hot-stamped, and later still printed. The tent logo is not unique to this particular model and is available on a few other models, for instance the Ranger.


In 1902, along with the infamous scissors, the saw was one of the first tools to be added to the standard six tools of the original Officer's Knife. An early version of the 'Camper' can be seen in this 1940s catalogue as Model 237 (see page 10), and it also appears in the 1903 catalogue.

The saw was a common tool on many of the earlier 91 and 100mm general purpose and gardening models.
For more details on the earlier models featuring the saw see the SAKWiki catalogues page.
