The New Victorinox Huntsman and Spartan Wood – Beautiful.

Reading Time: 5 minutes

This year Victorinox continues its dedication to design and to perpetuate the story of the iconic Swiss Army Knife. A while ago the Swiss brand started a full collection of pocket tools with wood scales. This detail of design was bringing a natural yet very elegant aspect to the pocket tools. Today there are two new models joining the collection: The new Victorinox Huntsman Wood and the new Victorinox Spartan Wood. Beautiful pieces that LuxuryActivist was lucky enough to get and to test.

The New Victorinox Spartan Wood – Icons Are For Ever

Victorinox-Spartan-Wood
With the new Victorinox Spartan Wood, fans will enjoy the well known and iconic Spartan with new scales made in Walnut wood. Functional yet elegant, the Spartan Wood Swiss Army Knife packs 10 essential functions into its slimline profile, which is encased in scales of elegant, durable walnut wood. With the wood giving it a handcrafted, tactile feel, each tool is unique, thanks to the material’s natural grain. But don’t think this is a knife that’s a soft touch – it’s a noble, lightweight companion that’s made for everyday use and every day’s adventure, whether carried in a pocket or a toolbox. You will not be disappointed with it.

The Spartan is a direct descendant of the historic Victorinox Officer’s Knife, having essentially the same toolset as the original knife, but the modern versions of the tools. The earlier Standard model was the predecessor to the Spartan and its name was a reflection of its early military heritage. It is almost identical to the Spartan, but with solid scales, which did not contain the tweezers or toothpick tools, and also usually did not included the key-ring. The original Spartan has the same tool set as the original Victorinox Officer’s Knife so it is a direct descendant of that historic Swiss Army Knife. The later versions only adding the toothpick and tweezers. The Spartan usually has classic red Cellidor scales, however it is/has been available in several different colours including ruby, blue, sapphire, green, emerald, yellow, black, white, and camouflage. Now Victorinox has extended the variations to Wood.  Victorinox-Spartan-Wood-profile

The New Victorinox Huntsman Wood – So natural

Victorinox-Huntsman-Wood
The Victorinox Huntsman is the perfect companion to be out there! It gathers all essential functionalities that will make your day and to take advantage of many situations. Functional yet elegant, the Huntsman Wood Swiss Army Knife packs 13 essential functions into its slimline profile, which is encased in scales of elegant, durable walnut wood. The Victorinox Huntsman is probably one of the most popular choices among the Swiss Army Knives of this size (91mm). It has 2 specific tools very useful: the wood-saw and the scissors. When you know the quality of the tools, you are definitely happy to get these in one pocket tool. I personally use the wood-saw for many garden works, cutting perfectly small branches (sometimes not that small!). This tool configuration has been manufactured in different forms and sizes for a several decades. Red and black Cellidor scales are fairly standard, with ruby, sapphire, and Silver Tech recently being offered as well. Camouflage scales are also available in either Shadow Grass or New Breakup patterns. As with most models other colors may be available from time to time or in specific markets. Now with the wood scales, the Victorinox Huntsman gets a new look, very coherent with its nature.
