Rest is not idleness,
and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day,
listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky,
is by no means a waste of time

I've not got an answer for you I'm afraid but we do have a few guys that might be able to tell you.  Unfortunately that whole Pocket Pal/Secretary/ Excelsior range just seems very muddled, let alone the smaller versions. :-\

Welcome to the forum though. :tu:

All I can tell you is they appear to be built on the 0.68xx frame, which was common in an earlier time for ladies and gentleman's knives. That's a very nice find as those knives are very pocket friendly.  It appears the knives were made with many different scales, but often from natural materials rather than aluminum.  I hope you find out more information, but I have a feeling there may not be any official name for that.  You could ask Victorinox if they know of any name being associated with it (or at least get the correct AN), but they don't seem to have paid much attention to the earlier names that were assigned by the importers.  The proper AN though may help you find a name if one exists.

Thanks for the help guys,I'll see what I can gather from Victorinox,as far as being pocket friendly you hardly notice it, I actually forgot it in my pocket after photographing it,but as its the only one I've got and in such good condition I won't be carrying it,its for display only. :D

It looks like in the past this knife had the AN ' 1070 r+ ', but at that time they used a different shield emblem.

Actually now I'm not sure if those were 75mm or 84mm.
