Victorinox Excelsior with silver Hot-Stamped Shield logo. The Excelsior was a fairly uncommon Victorinox model, however is now (2020) the only available model in the slim 84mm category. See Variations and History below. It is very similar to the Pocket Pal, but includes a keyring.

Checkered Textured Alox Excelsior
Checkered Textured Alox Excelsior


The Excelsior comes in standard red Cellidor, or smooth Alox, scales.
There was an older variation with silver ribbed (checkered) Alox scales, and no keyring.


  1. A recent (2020?) variation with smooth Alox scales, dual blade, with keyring.
  2. A variation (2020?) with Cellidor scales, a single blade and no keyring is known as the Excelsior One Blade.
  3. There was an earlier silver textured Alox model that had no keyring.


It looks like the name Excelsior was used for a couple of different models.
A catalog places the silver textured Alox model from the late 70's to the early 80's - (needs verification).
SAKWIKI initially had this identified as a 'fairly uncommon knife' (see above). However this model with keyring and Cellidor scales was resurrected, as it appears in the 2017 catalogue - probably replacing one of the other 84mm slim models, such as the Pocket Pal. It is also available with a couple of options (single blade, smooth alox scales).
