New Swiza knives - the 2019 releases
« on: March 10, 2019, 05:43:18 PM »
Here's a snap shot of the four knives that Swiza is going to release. The SH04 Single Hans is planned for november this year; the others for summer 2019.
The D03R 'horse' knife has no blade.
The D03 Allmatt has a carbon fiber print.

Good marketing!

Release the Grettel some time later and everyone will feel the need to complete the pair!

Buy now or regret later

 I can't understand so many hate to Swiza   :facepalm: :facepalm:  :facepalm:

Very sad

P.S.: Victorinox and Wenger also have many stupid names, models and tools.

I may pick up a SH04, but only because it's OHO and Swiza's typical size is about the same thing as 93mm. In my collection is exactly one D04. The Phillips doesn't work, and the awl is an accident waiting to happen. I've cut myself with it a ton of times.

Your experience is different than mine. I’ve had good luck with the Philips. The few times I’ve used the awl it’s been fine. I don’t like the can opener but the other tools have worked well for me.

I have handled one, but nothing about it appealed to me.  :dunno: I just find Victorinox and Wenger superior (for me) in every regard. I never used it though (it wasn't mine), so I can't comment on anything beyond initial impression.

Swiza blades are fantastic - more cutting edge than on a Pioneer and a better steel.
All the other tools work fine. I'm definitely looking forward to that one-hand opener.

I don't think that is correct - as it would be illegal - Vic and Wenger have exclusive rights to the term Swiss Army Knife
Not that anyone on ebay or in China respects that  :twak:
But you would never get away with it in Switzerland

IIRC - They launched themselves as the New Swiss Knife
Anyway semantics and memories aside
Point taken - It could be regarded as an arrogant, assumptive, or cynical or damm cheeky move !!

For me - I don't hate them - I have one D04 I think - Its fine I have not used it a lot though :(   - And I do prefer Vic
And competition is always good

Would love to try out those scissors !!

I don't think people hate the Swiza brand.

I just think not everyone sypmhatises with them for their marketing move.
Just like some people dislike Gerber for their "end-all-multitool, be-a-true-man" marketing.

Yes I agree. Maybe “hate” is a bit harsh. Maybe some alternative words are better, we could run a poll for popularity  :D

animosity
hostility
loathing
abhorrence
abomination
aversion
detestation
disgust
irritant
nuisance
repugnance
repulsion
revulsion
scorn

In my opinion their "the new Swiss Army Knife" slogan has nothing to do with bragging or arrogance on their part, here's my view on this ...

First of all, I'm pretty sure they can't use the term "Swiss Army Knife", so by using the slogan "the new Swiss Army Knife" they sidestep that landmine ...

Secondly, I was always under the impression that, when they started their knives department (since they were already making watches since early 1900's or something), they did this by employing some (don't know how many) former Wenger employees, one of which being former Wenger CEO Peter Hug.  Knowing this, I can understand that people who had dedicated their life producing one of the two official Swiss Army Knives brands would like their new design to be named "Swiss Army Knife" as well, or at least make a reference of it.

And last but not least, again, knowing some former Wenger employees are behind it, I can only have respect for the fact that they only just saw the Wenger brand being swallowed by Victorinox, and they already picked up the gloves to fight for their place next to this giant we all know as Victorinox.

And no, I don't own any Swiza knives myself (I did have one in my hands for quite a long time at the local outdoorshop, but the Victorinox Winemaster was at -70% so ...  ::)).  But I'm quite sure I'm going to end up buying one eventually.  Hopefully they get through the difficult first years and they improve their knives step by step, after all, Wenger was the SAK brand that had the most innovative ideas in my opinion, and even though they got it wrong some times, they did get it right a lot of times as well, so maybe we need to give them some time.  Looking at the "tick tool" on their knives, I see some of that Wenger brilliance and I can only wonder why nobody else thought of that before ...

As always, just my own humble opinion  :salute:.

Lime's disease is no laugh...

During my 27 years of life, I have used a ticktool once on myself, once on somebody else. Adding it to a knife to tote around all day just seems silly to me. And than we haven't discussed the sanitary issues to the bottom yet.

To each their own.
