Victorinox 111mm Slide Lock Models

History

The slide-lock models were the first 111mm Victorinox SAKs, introduced in the mid-80s, with the liner-lock models following in the mid-90s.

In 2017 Victorinox completely revised their 111mm product line, and ceased production of the slide-lock models. Some slide-lock models were retired, some converted to liner-lock ('Y' in table below), with these models* in reality being a renaming of an existing liner-lock model** to the slide-lock name. The Rucksack was replaced by the Forester - an existing 'equivalent' liner-lock model. - See tables below and individual pages for details.

The tables and links below show the models that were originally slide-locking, although all non-retired models are now available as liner-lock models.

  • The Fireman was available with black Nylon scales, (usually slide-lock models had red scales) and was converted to be a liner-lock model in the early 2000s, well before the big conversion to liner-lock in 2017
  • The Outdoor Tool (OT) - is a retired 2017 liner-locking model featuring a very similar toolset to the Outrider - See table and note 2 below

Notes:

  1. The slide-lock Picnicker was available with a serrated or plain-edged blade. The liner-lock version is only plain-edged.
  2. The Outdoor Tool replaces the Outrider's regular blade with an OHO blade, exchanges the can-opener for a 93mm awl, loses the in-line Phillips and adds a mini screwdriver.
  3. The Helmsman (also known as the Mariner), was initially available with a corkscrew rather than a Phillips screwdriver.
  4. Early versions of the Outrider, Hercules, and WorkChamp did not have the long Phillips screwdriver in the scissors layer.
  5. See the Workchamp XL page for configuration changes to the liner-lock version of the XL.

.... of the discontinued 111mm slide-lock models
Most were retired in 2017 at the withdrawal of slide-lock models by Victorinox. However some were retired prior to that - eg. Fireman, Cowboy, Atlas, Carpenter?
However - Please Note: Several were converted to be liner-lock models. See tables above
