In the Summer of the year 2013, the Victorinox family lost its Patriarch. Carl Elsener Senior was an inventor, a visionary leader and a great entrepreneur. Known throughout the world as the Swiss businessman who brought the little red Swiss army knife to the world, he made it a true companion for millions of people around the globe. Grounded and guided by his profound Christian faith and driven by his passion and strong will, he wanted to make things better and he succeeded in many, many ways. To honor the memory of this exceptional man, Victorinox is launching a very special collector‘s item. Mr. Elsener had a long standing affinity for his Explorer knife and to celebrate this, Victorinox is relaunching it in a Limited Edition, with a Damascus steel blade, inlayed, steel cross & shield and special wood body engraved with Mr. Elsener Sr.‘s signature. Each item is serial numbered and the edition is strictly limited to 7’000 pieces.
All folding knives and multitools should never be left wet or dirty after having being used, and should be cleaned, oiled and dried before storing. The finest product on the market to keep your prized cutting companion in excellent working condition, is the Quick Release Lubricant. Supplied with a unique needle point dispenser to apply a few drops to all moving parts, which emulsifies dirt and corrosion resulting in smooth friction free movement of all working implements.
