Thank you for posting. A lot of good points brought up in the review. I like the scale design on this “knife”.

I find this new design disturbing, but the music in the video is very soothing...

Thanks for that, Ulli - it is a bit confusing and clearly not a fast shifter as it’s still on sale (cf the other limited editions which sell out in hours)! I can understand that it’s meant to be a concept piece, but it does rather go against the form follows function ethos of a tool, but I suppose that’s the point. Just not for me! I wonder how long it will take to find 3000 buyers……

pfrsantos - soothing music!  :rofl:

I understand this as an art project, and in itself it doesn't have to make 'sense'.  But what I can't comprehend is it goes against what I've known Victorinox for so many years, functionality/value/practicality.  It's definitely an acquired taste.

Instead of abstract lines, why not mountains' silhouette from different continents?

What I can't comprehend is why they can find the resources to make this but can't be bothered to give us 84mm scissors for models like a Cadet X or Bantam X.  ???
