Beijing Olympic knives and an odd pair.
« on: June 26, 2012, 12:56:25 PM »
Here is something you don't see every day.  I am told it is a set of 5 commemorative Victorinox knives made for the Beijing Olympics of 2008. Each features a very nice metal tin that looks like a medal of sorts with a removable lanyard so that you can wear them like a medal. I couldn't find anything about them online after doing a quick search.



the lids pull off and you are greeted with some informational inserts. I cannot read Chinese, so I have no clue what they say.



Removing the paper overlays reveals the knives inside.



The knives  themselves are Spartans. I took one out and flipped it over to see what the other side looked like.



The set of 5 came inside a carrying bag.



Very neat I think, and different.

Up next, a Dream Classic, and a Cow Classic.









It looks like there is no end to the variety and numbers of special limited edition classics out there.

These Spartans are numbered as well as seen in this photo.

Nice, I think I saw those Olympic ones on that Japanese website a while ago, rakuten.jp or sth. like that.

I have the exact same set on the way to me as well.
Looks like a very nice set.
Did yours come in the gift box as in the picture below?

No gift box here. I take it these are individual pieces and yours comes as a complete set. but that is just a guess on my part.

The Olympic knives are neat. I managed to pick up one of the blue ones without the container. Is the woman a swimmer, a gymnast or what?

Thanks,

Reinier, you are correct. I had to look at them again. They are indeed 84mm and not 91mm.  :salute:

I would hazard a guess she is a swimmer due to the water like colours and graphics.

Doesn't it say "diving" on the paper inlay (second picture) ?

I can get one or two sets of the Peking set for for around $200 each if folks want to snatch them up while they are available.  Low numbers too.

I can confirm that the Beijing Olympic set that is available for 30% off (8000ntd*.7) is without the fancy packaging.  They are NIB in the standard silver Vic cardboard boxes.
