Victorinox developed the No. 75 model in the mid/late 1920s. The knife was produced until the early 1970s. It underwent only minor changes during this time.
Alongside the No. 72, it was the most popular pocket knife in this series and was available in many different versions up to the end of production, with different scale materials, with handle or with toothpick and tweezers.
The 1971 Model No. 75 in mother-of-pearl with toothpick and tweezers was more than 10 times the price of the Model No. 70 with aluminum scales, making these pocket knives luxury items (see catalog 1971).
In addition to a large and a small cutting blade, model no. 75 had additional scissors and a long, wide nail file on the back.
The models Cellidor red with a cross, mother-of-pearl and horn were available with a toothpick and tweezers, the model in Cellidor red with a cross was also available with or without a ring/bail.
Large blade: 2.4mm; small blade: 1.2 mm; Scissors: 2.4mm; long nail file: 5.2 mm
Model no. 75 is a 2-layer model, with the special feature that the tool on the back, the wide nail file, uses both layers and thus both back springs. In the upper layer, the scissors turn around the head rivet, while the back spring is branched at the base of the pocket knife. The lower layer is identical to that of model no. 72.
Cellidor in imitation mother-of-pearl and imitation tortoiseshell as well as red with a cross, horn, tortoiseshell, mother-of-pearl and steel guilloché were used as the scale material, but never aluminum.
Liners, interlayer, rivets
The liners and the intermediate layers were made of nickel silver, as were the rivets.
