The model no. 2230 was developed by Victorinox in the late 1950s. It is very similar in design and construction to the No. 242k model, but features a bottle opener and later a combo tool in place of a small cutting blade. The models with red ribbed scales were produced until the early 1970s. Those with silver bowls a little longer, until around the mid-1980s. When the bottle opener was replaced by the combo tool around 1980, Victorinox also produced the model with Cellidor scales, today's Bantam model.
In addition to a large cutting blade, model no. 2230 had a bottle opener (later combo tool). Only the later produced models with Cellidor scales had the addition of a toothpick/tweezers. The model was available with or without a key ring.
Large cutting blade: 2.5 mm; Bottle opener: 1.5 mm (later combo tool 1.4 mm)
Model No. 2230 is structurally similar to Model No. 242k. The head rivet fixes the large cutting blade, the bottom rivet the bottle opener. The center rivet holds the back spring in place.
Classic scale material is aluminium, silver or red ribbed. In addition, variants in smooth aluminum were produced for advertising purposes. From the 1980s onwards, variants with cellidor scales were also created, the Bantam model, which still exists.
The model no. 2230 does not have any liners (except for the variant with Cellidor scales ). The spacers and rivets are made of nickel silver.
