NEWS – 125 years ago in 1897 the world was introduced to the first Swiss Army knife and the first multi-tool. To celebrate this achievement in longevity and popularity, Victorinox has released the Replica 1897 Limited Edition which is an accurate replica of the original Swiss Army Knife multi-tool. This cool knife features vulcanized red fiber scales instead of the original’s wood scales and it has 6 tools:
- Can opener
- Small Blade
- Large Blade
- Screwdriver 5 mm
If you are a collector of EDC gear, this limited edition multi-tool would be a great addition to your collection as long as you don’t mind paying $500 for it. If that price isn’t a problem, then head over to swissarmy.com and order one before their limited run of 9,999 pieces runs out. But if that price makes your wallet squeak in protest, then make a detour and head over to Amazon where you can celebrate the birthday of the multi-tool with a more modern variant that won’t make you broke.
