Victorinox Paramedic (Prototype very old news don't get excited )
« on: February 21, 2019, 02:21:19 PM »


Not sure if this has been linked before but there is an interesting fact page on the Victorinox site

https://www.victorinox.com/ch/en/Victorinox/Inspiration/Swissness-%26-Heritage/Did-you-know/cms/didyouknow

I wish the paramedic had made it into production in the 1950's



and with some other soldiers and prototypes

Nice find! I didn't know this.

Why did they have to include a pic of a smooth alox Dutch Army knife? It makes me sad. They are made of unobtainium.

You should seriously visit vicfan.com. All the hoopy froods are doing it.

Jup. Guess we will have to make do with the blue cellidor ones, which are rare enough on their own  ::)

But in the 1990s, Victorinox released a 91mm Alox Officers knife with blue scales exclusively for the Dutch Army. This was actually the only 91 mm Officers knife ever released with Alox scales and even more unusual, the scales themselves were completely smooth.

The triangular awl variation predates the 1990s :P

As far as I know now there are 3 different models of blue alox Dutch Air Force Vic's, 1 blue alox for the Naval Aviators, and 4 different blue cellidor RNLAF Vic's.

RNLAF: It's the official abbreviation of Royal Netherlands Air Force.

Please look at the thread: Dutch Army Knives.

Thanks Meccy - This one worked.

Two problems with the link above: !!
1. My Safari version would not go to the Vic site
2. The link worked from my PC - But Victorinox.co.au intercepted the request and put up the Vic.com.au home page..... Great   >:( 
 - I hate it when the internet overrides what you have requested.    :rant:     Grrrrr

Awesome.

The outline webpage removes all ads and pictures (that weren't included any more anyway) so your news article is "outlined" and easier to read.

Figured it might work for the Vic page.

It also used to work against most newssites paywalls..
