Sentinel 0.8413M3 The Sentinel and Sentinel Plus are Victorinox 111mm liner-lock models introduced in 2008. They feature only a single large blade and come, as standard, with black scratch resistant nylon scales. Although the Sentinels only contain a single blade, they come in several different variations.

The Sentinel Plus featured a plain-edged (straight) blade and added a Phillips screwdriver to the back side.
The Sentinel Plus is retired as of 2017.

  1. Available with a straight plain-edged blade.
  2. The one-handed-opening version was also introduced in 2008 and is available with either a plain-edge or the combo-serrated blade.
  3. The Sentinel Clip model introduced in 2009 featured a one-hand opening blade, in serrated and non serrated options, and a pocket clip on the reverse scale.
  4. The Black-Oxide Sentinel Clip (0.8416.M3) was first introduced in the special limited edition Victorinox Military Collector's Set 2010. This All Black/Blackout version features black-oxide coated blade, liners, spring, keyring, and clip with black Nylon scales. The blade is one-hand opening with a plain-edge and a standard v-grind. Knives that were produced as part of the collection are numbered. A limited number of knives produced for sale in Europe outside of the collection are not numbered.
  5. The Black-Oxide Sentinel (0.8413.MILI) one-handed (OH) limited run: the "Black série" with black-oxide coated serrated blade, liners, spring, keyring but NO clip; it comes with a soft khaki imitation leather pouch which can be fitted horizontally ou vertically.
  6. In 2009 a special edition Sentinel was released by the US dealer SMKW, along with the 125 Jubilee Series series. It contained an OH plain blade etched with the Jubilee logo 125 Years Your Companion for Life and featutred a pocket-clip on the reverse scale.
  7. 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 (!)
  8. In 2021, the Chinese collector team customized 150 knives. The blade was etched with a portrait of Emperor Kangxi, the year of his birth and death, and his poems. This was the first customization depicting traditional Chinese culture - See image below/right.
  9. An unusual variant has been located in some markets which is a Sentinel, but with an added woodsaw. This model was available in North America and was known as the Walkabout. It was rumoured to be a prototype, or possibly a custom for a specific dealer.
