    Anyone have any idea of what the exact model # for Mac's Swiss Army Knife is? I know he has a Victorinox cuz he flashed it in one episode, but I don't know the model # or anything.

    That is hard to answer because I think I can remeber seeing him use more than one variety of it.....I can remember him using a couple of different ones in different situations I think but I can check on some of the DVD's I have to make sure.....At any rate it was mostly the Knife and I think screwdriver (slot head) that he used the most anyway and most of them have those two components on them.....Mine has a large and small knife, Can opener, bottle opener each with a slot screwdriver on the end, a corkscrew, Scissors and sawblade.....and also tweezers and toothpick....and also something with a little hole in it that I don't know what it is for....

    It is a very handy item that I carry around in my pocket all the time.....

    He uses four models in the show, The Tinker, The Traveler, Back to the Tinker, The Executive, and the Explorer.

    I was writing a newspaper column about the knife and came by this site while looking for info about the knife. I wrote Victorinox, asking about the knife. Here is what Victorinox says:

    Dear David



    We thank you very much for your interest in our products and your great articles. As you recognised MacGyver did not use always the same model of Swiss Army Knife. But the most in use was the Huntsman and Tinker version...


    Thanks again and best regards from snowy Switzerland.

    This German MacGyver FAQ says that he used the Huntsman model, model number "1.3713", so it's probably the one he used most of the time.

    Edit: Here you go
