Victorinox produced model no. 201 accableing to catalogs from around 1900 to around 1970. Instead of the awl, this model had a corkscrew, compared to the basic model no. 200. Although this model was made for a very long time, it is comparatively rare.
The original models had a corkscrew without a soul. The attachment of the corkscrew to the foot rivet was special compared to the corkscrew on the army knife, where it was fixed with the center rivet. This was much more practical when using the corkscrew than with model no. 201. This may have been one reason why model no. 201 was only produced and sold in very small numbers.
Pocket knife No. 201 had a large cutting blade, a screwdriver, a can opener and a corkscrew.
Large cutting blade: 3.4 - 3.7 mm; Corkscrew: 2.0mm; Screwdriver: 3.0mm; Can opener: 2.7 mm
Pocket knife No.201 was a 2-layer model. The top layer consisted of a screwdriver and a can opener, the bottom layer of a large cutting blade and a corkscrew. The screwdriver and cutting blade rotated around the head rivets, the other 2 tools around the foot rivets.
Victorinox used red fiber as the scale material for this model.
The liners and the rivets were made of steel or German silver, the intermediate layer of brass or German silver.
