MODEL DESCRIPTION: The Victorinox Yeoman Swiss Army knife is one of three popular, retired models that are similar to the modern Explorer, but more compact. It is a popular collectible, and also is popular as an everyday carry. It has the same functionality as the Explorer in one less layer: it does that by having just one blade, and a combo opener instead of two separate openers.
Most likely they were just saving a few bucks by using up older boxes, but ever since it has caused tremendous confusion between this version (3 layers) and the much more common Explorer (4 layers). AUTHENTICITY NOTE: Because of its popularity, modders sometimes build "custom" versions of this model, usually by merging parts from a Compact and an Explorer. Reputable modders like SwissBianco are careful to identify their creations with custom markings, to avoid confusion with the originals. Unfortunately, a few modders want to cash in on rarity value, and do not mark their work. If we do that, there is some risk we may damage the scales.
The Victorinox Yeoman knife is 91mm (3½") long, about 26mm (1") wide, and 18mm (0.7) thick. It weighs about 85.4 grams (3.0 oz). And contains the following tools.
