1990's Victorinox Secretary


This smooth Alox 84mm knife was designed for the lighter desk-tasks and came in beautiful red smooth scales. There were three different colours available, red, silver and blue. The red one was discontinued in 1999 and was first developed in the late sixties, early seventies, but with a Victoria or Elinox blade stamp. Mine has the more recent Victorinox Swizerland Stainless Rostfrei. This stamp was used from 1975 till 2005, but since the white Victorinox shield popped up in the eighties (SMICO catalog), this one should be from the late eighties, or even nineties... None of these designs had the keychain-ring. This is my first smooth alox Secretary with the Victorinox shield and I was able to buy this one in near mint condition. All it took was some warm water and soap to clean it...

    Have a question regarding victorinox knife, which is very similar to mentioned Secretary, but with stainless scales (like Director model has).
    Do you know, what's name of this model?
