Victorinox developed model no. 2208 in the late 1950s. It is included in the 1959 catalogue. It was a 2-layer pocket knife with 3 tools. It featured the special sewing awl. This is often confused with a marlin spike, a seafaring tool used to trim cableage. The sewing awl at Victorinox was originally used to repair sacks (e.g. for potatoes) with thick thread/thread and was therefore intended for farmers/harvesters and not for sailors and seafarers.
Model No.2208 had a large cutting blade, a sewing awl, and a saw. There was no model with the shackle/key ring.
Large cutting blade: 2.8 mm; saw: 1.8 mm; Sewing awl: 1.8 mm
Model No. 2208 was a 2-layer pocket knife. The upper layer was identical to the lower layer of Model No. 2204 (saw), the lower layer identical to that of Model No. 2203. The saw and large cutting blade revolved around the head rivet, and the sewing awl around the foot rivet.
Victorinox used red anodized aluminum as the scale material.
The intermediate layer and plate consisted of brass, later of nickel silver; the head and foot rivets are made of nickel silver, the center rivet is made of aluminium.
