By Laura Shirk

Off-White™ c/o Victorinox Limited Edition Swiss Army Knife

Victorinox and Off-White teamed up to co-create the Off-White™ c/o Victorinox Limited Edition Swiss Army Knife that "brings together the best of both brands and combines Victorinox expertise and its brand values of functionality, quality, innovation and iconic design with the creativity and boldness of Off-White,™" shares the PR.

The release describes Off-White™ and Victorinox as a team of two brands with one mission: to equip the world with functionality and sophisticated style for any urban adventure.

“We are excited about the outcome of the Off-White™ c/o Victorinox Limited Edition bringing together Victorinox tradition and knowledge with the young and up-to-date brand Off-White™ representing today’s understanding of urban adventure, an attitude that we share for all of our products”, explains Veronika Elsener, Chief of Marketing at Victorinox.

A nod to the beginning

The design of the blades represents the shapes of ancient tools made from stone and used for cutting, drilling, skinning and other tasks during pre-historic times. The blades’ rounded edges slightly protrude from the corpus of the pocket knife giving this limited edition a unique look.

Besides the shape of the blades, the silhouette of the single tools, when positioned in the correct order next to each other, resembles a fig leaf. This nod to Adam and Eve is linked to the core concept of beginnings. Limited to 3,000 pieces only worldwide, sequential numbering is engraved on the blade and makes every limited piece one of a kind.

The theme of the ancient stone tool is also represented by a completely new material that has never previously been used on a Swiss Army Knife. Corian® Solid Surface is a solid, non-porous, homogeneous surfacing material, composed of resin and natural minerals.

The scales are white, complemented by black prints. On the front scale the Victorinox Cross & Shield logo and further iconic symbols representing the heritage of the brand are imprinted, along with the name and the year of this limited edition. On the back scale a series of images represents the evolution from stone to tool.

Off-White™ c/o Victorinox limited edition

Off-White™ invited Victorinox to collaborate on a special edition Swiss Army Knife as the hero product of its “Equipment™” project in partnership with Post Archive Faction (PAF). PAF is a South Korean menswear brand launched by Dongjoon Lim and Sookyo Jeong in 2018.

In strong alignment with Virgil Abloh, the two brands worked hand in hand for the next two years to develop this unique design piece with innovative elements never seen before on a Swiss Army Knife.

The Off-White™ c/o Victorinox Limited Edition can be purchased in selected stores and online. Victorinox guarantees all knives and tools to be of first-class stainless steel. Each item has a life-time guarantee against any defects in material and workmanship.

Victorinox prides itself on more than 135 years of experience in the manufacturing of high-quality knives in Switzerland.
