For the kitchen cutlery collection, Victorinox developed a special line, based on Ceramic knives. You have 2 colors: White and Black. There are 4 different sizes and shapes: 8cm, 12cm, 15cm and the Santoku 17cm. The usage of ceramic in the kitchen is an interesting topic with several advantages. A ceramic knife manufactured in the state of art, will procure you the best efficiency in terms of cutting. It will also have an incredible resistance through time. Last but not least, the Ceramic material has also the capability to not transfer tastes from one ingredient to another. This means that you can cut onions for example and then meat without having any transfer. he Victorinox ceramic knife is manufactured from high-purity zirconium oxide (to a percentage of almost 100%). As a result, the knife blade is almost as hard as a diamond. The blade remains sharp over a very long period and has an impressively high cutting quality.

Each watch has a story. Each watch has a starting point, a special inspiration that will lead to a specific design and functionality. The Victorinox Swiss Army Alpnach has a great one. Inspired by the legendary Cougar AS 532 helicopters of the Swiss Army, Alpnach is also the name of one of the top military bases in Switzerland. So this mechanical watch has a cutting edge look, and we picked up the full black look here. Black dial and full black PVD treatment on a stainless steel bracelet. Here is a nice video by Victorinox showing the parallel between the watch and the helicopter. Welcome to a man’s world.
