Build Your Own Swiss Army Knife

125th Anniversary

Victorinox, the manufacturer of the classic Swiss Army knife, celebrates its 125th anniversary this year. To commemorate the event, they’re holding a special “build your own knife” workshop at the Château de Prangins just outside of Geneva. The workshop is part of a much larger historical exhibition called ’Swiss Army Knife – Cult Object.’’

According to event organizers, the exhibition, also offers a ‘’unique opportunity to assemble your own personal knife, with the help of a cutler from Victorinox.”

A few of the tailor-made knife workshops have already passed, but the last one will take place from 1 to 5 p.m. on the 5th, 6th, and 7th of March 2010.

A number of people attended a previous workshop on January 16th and produced the following video. The video is a little dry, but it offers an interesting look at how the Swiss Army Knife is made.

Did you know that Victorinox and Wenger are the only knife manufacturers that are allowed to display the white cross of the Swiss Army on their knives? It’s true. Victorinox and Wenger are the real deal.

It’s a picnic lunch during one of our hiking tours through the Alps. That’s my Ryder-Walker special edition in Swiss Army Knife in blue sitting there in the middle. And yes, it sliced all those wonderful European delicacies.

Leatherman tools may be rugged, but nothing says “The Alps” like a Swiss Army. Interestingly, they make their own line of Leatherman style multitools too. You can view them here.
