swiss pocket knives

No. 235 m


Victorinox produced the model no. 235 m from the early 1970s until today. The "m" in the production number stands for "metal saw/file". It is one of the few models that includes the scissors and metalsaw without the regular saw.

Although the metalsaw/file had existed since the beginning of the 1950s and the configuration of model no. 235 m would have been theoretically possible, it was delayed for around 20 years. Apparently there was a demand to include this specific configuration in the Victorinox model range. That this was the right decision is shown by the fact that this model is still being produced today.
