The Swiss Army Knife Doesn’t Get Flashier Than This

Victorinox released a limited-edition collection of Swiss Army knives that look noticably different from its classic red.

There’s no pocket knife more truly classic than the Swiss Army Knife. It may not be the best knife available, but it’s a tool that’s recognized around the globe, one that’s often gifted as a symbolic rite of passage: this is your first knife, use it well. The most common Swiss Army is one with the red handle scales and a Swiss cross. It’s rudimentary in a good way, but Victorinox’s newest iteration of the tool is precisely the opposite.

Champagne gold. That fancy descriptor applies to three limited-edition Swiss Army knives that Victorinox released today. The knives are part of its Alox collection, a series that features embossed anodized aluminum handle scales. The knives are available in different constructions that separately include other tools like scissors, a can opener and a nail file. The gold handles are extravagant and even gaudy, calling to mind a middle ground between Rolex watches and Boy Scout bling.
