Victorinox developed model no. 2203 in the 1950s. It was a 1-layer pocket knife with a large cutting blade and a sewing awl / pocket awl. This was something special about the Pioneer Alox series that two long tools shared a layer, as here with model no. 2203. In order for the two tools to pass each other when closed, the aluminum scale had a notch on the side of the sewing awl, on which it came to lie closed.
This model hardly went through structural changes.
Model No.2203 featured a large cutting blade and sewing awl. The model was optionally available with a bail.
Large cutting blade: 2.8 mm; Sewing awl: 1.8 mm
The large cutting blade turned around the head rivet, the sewing awl around the foot rivet. An intermediate layer was also attached to the base rivet to compensate for the difference in tool thickness.
Victorinox used red anodized aluminum as the scale material.
The intermediate layer consisted of brass, later of German silver; the head and foot rivets are made of nickel silver, the center rivet is made of aluminium.
