Tinker

Victorinox Tinker The Victorinox Tinker is a popular 91mm model that is very similar to the classic Spartan.
The only difference is that the Spartan's backspring corkscrew is replaced with a Phillips screwdriver.

The McKinley model/variation was a Tinker with a partially serrated blade.
This model is no longer available.

Variations 

  1. A Nylon scaled version (a.k.a Tinker II / Eurosport / Ecoline), was also available at one time, and may still be available in some markets.
  2. The McKinley version (see image above) replaces the main blade with a 60% partially serrated blade, on which the serrations start at the tang. The McKinley was one of a series of three knives named after famous mountains. See also: Matterhorn, Rainier. Note: Mount McKinley is now more commonly known by its native name Denali.
    This series is discontinued.

History 

The backspring Phillips screwdriver was introduced by Victorinox in 1952. The Tinker has remained a very popular model since then.
