  5. In 2009 a 125 Years Sentinel was introduced as a part of a big special series 125 Years Your Companion for Life. This model was released in US market only (need to verify). This model contains an OH plain blade with special print on it and a pocket clip on the reverse scale.
  6. In 2011 the Sentinel was released with the new red dual-density scales. This configuration also featured a corkscrew on the back, but was, somewhat confusingly, still known as a Sentinel, which had always been a blade only model - This configuration is now (2017) known as an Alpineer. (Errata in 2011 catalogs: Some versions of the catalogs show a picture of this model (red scales), but the description states that the scales are black Nylon ! )


First introduced in 2008. In 2009 models featuring a pocket clip were introduced.
In 2017 the Plus model was retired, and corkscrew model was renamed to be an Alpineer.
