swiss pocket knives

No. 236 m


Victorinox produced the model no. 236 m since the beginning of the 1950s. It was assigned to the "For craftsmen and hobbyists" category. This was basically the Master Craftsman model, except that it had a corkscrew instead of a Phillips screwdriver.

Victorinox catalogues, model no. 236 m was offered in versions with a toothpick/tweezers as standard and with the option of a clip/key ring as an add-on. This 5-ply model is still in production today and is known as the "Ranger". In addition to classic red cellidor scales, this model was also made with horn scales.

The suffix "m" in the model number indicates an additional "metalsaw/file". Models from around the late 1960s often had an insert made of nickel silver/stainless steel embedded in the scale with the designation "Camping" and the depiction of a tent.
