I've seen these before, although I don't know what they were for.  What does the light inscription on the blade say?  It looks like some kind of little thank you gift from Victorinox.

The blade will be lasered with "for your story"

These Classics were given to random employees from Victorinox who send in their story to the HQ.

There should be a note inside explaining the event.

Oh?
I just tried and the link opens fine on my phone.

It's from 2012 and was an employee only release "of just a few hundred". So you won't see them very often.

I have Wikipedia blocked here. :facepalm:But I've learned something new. Are there any other links to this information? Thank you very much.

Not that I know of.

I'll copy the written text here.
It's accompanied by some pics of the package and document inside.

Early 2012, Victorinox created a contest in which every Vic-employee worldwide could enter and send in a real life story about their knife. A few days ago I met an ex-Victorinox employee who wanted to sell his "gift"... The white cardboard box with red logo contains a picture frame with cellophane instead of glass. When you open up the frame, you can clamp the Classic between the two layers of cellophane. On top of the frame, there's a small brochure with a text where Carl Elsener thanks his employee for the inspirational story. The knife itself is extraordinary! The scales are filled with "thank you" in all different languages, and the main blade has "for your story" and the signature of Carl Elsener etched on it. This is, according to the small letter included in the box, a set limited to a few hundred pieces worldwide, and that makes me smile, because I'm one of the few with one... ;)

I know the author personally, and I'm sure he doesn't mind me copying a few of his pics.





He told me about this find some time ago.
He bought it from a Victorinox employee directly (as stated in the text) who told him about the contest. So I'm pretty sure it's completely accurate.
