Victorinox Swiss Champ Damast Limited Edition 2021 Promo

After updating the 61-tool Champ XXL Swiss Army Knife in classic red earlier this year, Victorinox is rolling out an especially upscale special edition of the smaller Swiss Champ that’s aesthetically darker and more suited to everyday carry. 


The star of the multi-tool is the large blade rendered in a “Bjorkman’s Twist”-pattern Damast, the shorthand used by Victorinox in reference to intricate high-strength Damascus steel. The knife’s wavy patterns hues play perfectly with the handle’s, which is constructed from forged carbon scales in multiple shades of gray instead of red thermoplastic.
