Luxury Automobile

Victorinox model known as the Luxury Edition of the Automobile knife (or Luxury Automobile for short).
Adds the scissors and saw to the base model. The Victorinox Luxury Automobile (Automobile knife - Luxury Edition) is a five-layer 91mm model that has a special St. Christopher (the patron saint of the traveller) inlay on the top scale. The tools were given an extra high polish on this luxury model.

Victorinox advertised this special model in some brochures as the luxury version of the Automobile model.

Name Disambiguation:
Definitively known as the Luxury Automesser (5146ma) in German speaking countries, it is sometimes referred to as a Luxury Motorist because a smaller model described as the base model to this luxury version was listed in this this Catalog as the Motorist. The catalog entry may have been incorrect, or it could be a region specific name originating from English speaking Europe, or the name could have been changed to remove some confusion at the time.

This model also appears in several older North American brochures (without a model number) as the Cadillac.

Discontinued model.
