Can someone count the number of different Victorinox Multitools
Do Swisstool were different versions, depending on the year of production (the main difference is the shape and labeling of pliers). Some versions have been in black
[Example]
Swisstool
         STD   X   RS   STD Black  STD Bl CC STD Signed
1997    *     ?    ?          ?                 -               -
1998    *     ?    ?          ?                 -               *
1999    *     ?    ?          ?                 -               -
2002    *     *    *         *                 -               -
2005    *     *    *         *                 -               -
2008    *     *    *         *                 -               -
2012    *     *    *         *                 *               -
Result  - 21

Spirit
               STD   X    S    Black  RT
? ? ? ?        *     *    *      *      *
Result - 5 :)
 
SportRachet, Autotool
Result -2
 
End result 21 + 5 +2 = 28 :)
[/Example]

PS More interested in the question - what year began to produce black version Swisstool? I have a version in blister - on an early version of pliers (1997-2000), but without the logo, it would be desirable to determine without opening.

Recap on the SwissTool models, which differ only in the four "long" blades:

STANDARD..............plain knife........saw blade.........serrated knife.........file
SWISSTOOL X.........plain knife........saw blade.........scissors.................file
SWISSTOOL RS........plain knife........saw blade.........scissors................curved rescue blade

SWISSTOOL CS......same exact thing as the X model, but packaged with a removeable corkscrew accessory.
komalsharma, this is what we are talking about for different SwissTool models.

I got my Swisstool RS in and I think I'll get a BO Swisstool and call this collection done.

I was gonna collect the different heads but so many Swisstools and I have other tools I really want.  I'm thinking the 98 Swisstool Standard may go up for trades since I have 2.  Now on to a few Spirits I think.

Good luck with that, but fair warning, there are a couple of Spirit variations that might be hard to find :salute:

So, dear Swisstool enthusiasts...
I came across a Swisstool that I thought would only exist as a Photoshopped model. I bougt it right away (at a premium) to secure it for the Swisstool Lovers.  ;)

It is a 2 bladed model with what I´d identify as a `98 model Plierhead. The tool has teh holes for accepting the Corkscrew. It is teh SS version. BUT - It has a CC plierhead!

Does anybody own one like it? I have only found threads mentioning the BO Cap Crimper.

I know,  :worthless: but I need to find soem time during daylight hours and clean the Tool before taking pics.

I have thought the same... Tool is up to a good scrubbing after the initial wash and WD 40 and I hope to be able to post pics tonight - I´ll open another thread, though...

What if... They made the Swiss tool in brushed instead of the high polish? I think I'd be like  :ahhh

(Since the BOs are virtually non existent)

Allow me to rectify, then: Almost nobody reads the stickies, it seems :D

Plenty of useful stuff hidden in the stickies, that's true.

Hello! I have owned my RS awhile now and use the "seatbelt cutter" for all the time has any one tried to sharpen the separations on the one side? I'm pretty experienced in  sharpening and feel comfortable doing it just wondering of anyone else had tried it and if so did you a diamond steel rod or something else thank you!!!

Dragging up an old topic by the hair... are there any markings I can use to put a definite date on my SwissTools? I think they are the original model from around when they started being sold. Red markings, left side plier pivot. They do have saw blades, not serrated knives.

Thanks in advance!

I believe that's a 98 plier head.

Thanks, that conforms to what fractions of my memory still exist  :rofl:

The history of my Swisstool collection (see next post from my phone) begins with the one on the right - I was fascinated that Victorinox (in an attempt to emulate Leatherman's success, one might be tempted to speculate) came with a plier based tool and I bought it as soon as I could justify it for myself (read 'immediately'). That must have been around 1998. About a year later I got the other one as a present (which I politely did not decline  :D).

BTW the link you posted MusicMen - this seems to work only with Tapatalk (but ends up showing a tiny picture even on an S7) and not on the Web version of the Wiki ("Access Frobidden").

The Wiki should be pretty clear on models etc now - We did quite a bit of work on it last year.

See link in Musicmen's post above.

Any comments, omissions, clarifications needed - Please let us know
And we do need to add in the new black ST BS and ST Spirit XBS models

And from the 2017 catalogue it looks like the RS is withdrawn - Anyone any info/confirmation on that?

We have also re-organised the Autotool page and LeaF has put some great new photos there

Any info on the 1997 Swiss Tool with logo centered on the pliers? Rare or not? :think:  Not familiar with all different Swiss Tool models and as far as I understand, logo and shield emblem were centered on the pliers only in 1997.
