Victorinox Picnicker 111mm. Picture by victor7000. The Picnicker (the name printed by Victorinox as Picknicker) is a two-layer Victorinox liner-locking model, that is the 111mm version of the 91mm Spartan.

The original version of this model (prior to 2017) was slide-locking - see History, and according to Victorinox, was one of the most popular models in the slide-lock series.

Name Disambiguation: There is also a smaller 91mm Picnicker model.

From 2017, Victorinox only produced liner-locking 111mm models, however the liner-locking Nomad, which had an equivalent toolset to the Picnicker, was removed from the catalogue and the Picnicker remained, but as a liner-locking model. So, in practice the Nomad was renamed to become the Picnicker, and the original version of the Picnicker was retired! Prior to 2017 both models had been available for several years.
