Victorinox developed model no. 2212 in the 1960s. It became known as the so-called "electrician's knife ". Similar to model No.2210, the can opener has been replaced with another tool, here the cable blade. There was never a model with a cable blade and a narrow screwdriver, which would have combined the special tools of the silver mechanic's knife. This may not have been technically possible. Model No.2212 was made exclusively with silver aluminum scales. As with the other silver Alox - Pioneer knives, Victorinox also produced a variant of model no. 2212 with an engraving plate for the Swiss Federal Railways SBB.
Model No.2212 had a large cutting blade, screwdriver and cable blade, and an awl. This model did not come with a shackle/key ring.
Large cutting blade: 2.8 mm; Awl: 1.8 mm; Cable Blade: 1.8mm; normal screwdriver: 2.25 mm
The lower layer of model no. 2212 is identical to that of the soldier's knife model no. 2220 (awl and large cutting blade). The upper layer consists of a cable blade and a screwdriver. The latter moves around the head rivet together with the large cutting blade, the other 2 tools around the foot rivet.
Since both the cable blade and the narrow screwdriver had a lower material thickness than the screwdriver, a thin intermediate layer was required, which was fixed with the head rivet.
Victorinox used silver aluminum as the scale material.
The intermediate layers and board consisted of brass, later of nickel silver; the head and foot rivets are made of nickel silver, the center rivet is made of aluminium.
