Victorinox Tomo – the unboxing by LuxuryActivist

Hi, this month the Makers of the Swiss Army knife, Victorinox, is launching a new product called Victorinox Tomo. It is the result of a beautiful collaboration between the Swiss brand and the Japanese design studio Abitax. We can really say that Swiss Precision meets Japanese Design for a cutting edge product. I have already made an article about it a few month ago, before the launch. You can find it here. There is more information about Mr Yamaguchi work and the collaboration. Now, here below you will find a video of the unboxing I made of the Victorinox Tomo. It gives you a good idea on how great this product is. You will like to collect them all!

 

According to Mr. Yamaguchi: “for Japanese people, Simple is beautiful”… check here an exclusive interview from the Designer:

Victorinox Tomo is definitely a beautiful product with a beautiful story. Visit the official mini-website to learn more about it and especially where can you find them:

Hi Josè

I have had mine for a few days, a Tomo Capri Blue, i am really happy that the small models with Classic function has received even more new light, i have done some study on the last 2-3 decades on the development of the models, really interesting it is. The packaging is also so special that i really think i am hypnotized, I believe it was Mr Charles Elsener the CEO that asked for a different packaging and with the environment in mind, please correct me if i am wrong, i have read some on the factory in Ibach and its heavy efforts on the environment friendly production. Already from the book of 1984 we specially see this, the new 1980s factory complex had this in mind, Victorinox has won prizes for this earth friendly view.
So this was what that went straight into a file in my head, Tomo is not only having a eco friendly package it is Swiss Made and made in a production with eco friendly function.

Best regards
Trond

Hi Trond,
good to hear from you! Yes you are right about it. From many years Victorinox has been investing a lot on ecological responsibility. Tomo is definitely an engagement of the brand to show that we can all be responsibles about our acts in terms of product development… and still desirable. Japanese understood this a long time ago and many other brands in Europe and in US must understand this still.
Victorinox is proud to be swiss made and eco-friendly.
Cheers,
J

Hi LA

I just realizing that this new Tomo really give a new era of engraving and personalizing the knife, the field or space for this is much larger………..Also interesting to hear that the designer mention the importance of colors with different meanings, colors on a Swiss Army Knife is red best known, in the 80s it seemed that colors was not just easy to vary, this was extra costly, from the late 80s until now we have a huge variation of coloring…
