The classic Swiss Army Knife scores a delicious makeover as Victorinox drops a new collection inspired by the foods of the world. The ten bold and bright designs were created by fans of the brand from all over the globe who submitted their designs and were then selected by fans as the best of the 2,380 submissions.
Designers faced the challenging task of creating art for a surface that’s just 58mm in length and 9mm in height. Not the easiest of jobs, but the results are worthy of their place amongst this limited edition collection. The Victorinox Classic Swiss Army Knife collection is available now with knives priced at RRP AUD$52.95 each.
The chosen designs do not take themselves too seriously. They include a sardine can, a banana split and banana pattern, a neon-lit burger bar with signage and a popcorn maker. Plus, there’s a gingerbread man and woman, camping meals cooked over an open fire, a lemon tree, chilli with spicy warnings, tacos and a cheese pattern and cow. Each pocket knife has two unique images with one presented on each side.
Victorinox describes the foods of the world collection as “neat, practical and a treat for the eyes.” Of course, they are also functional tools, with each knife offering the basics like a small blade, scissors, nail file, 2.5mm screwdriver, key ring, toothpick and tweezers.
The 2019 food collection is available now in limited quantities so grab one before they’re gone then resold on eBay for exorbitant prices.
The new collection follows on from the 2018 places of the world collection which showcased colourful images of famous places also submitted and voted for by Victorinox fans from around the globe.
