Everybody knows and loves a Swiss Army knife, but most people only think of them as little red knives with multiple blades. Well, that’s just not always the case. Here are five Victorinox Swiss Army knives you may have never seen.
Wounded Warrior Project Eagle Tinker
Item Number: V55393 Price: $21.99
Give this one as a gift and support a great cause at the same time. This Tinker design is one of two designs that originated from the 2017 WWP Design Challenge, in which wounded warriors were invited to submit knife designs encompassing the theme of duty, honor, courage, commitment, integrity, country, and service.
Designer and Wounded Warrior, Manny Colon describes his design by saying: “Non Hodgkin Lymphoma stage IV, PTS, MTBI and Diabetes gets you really thinking about what is next. I have always felt a strong connection to eagles, the sign for country and courage. While in the military, we would paint animals on our faces before combat missions. I always chose to paint an eagle on mine. During my recovery, I repeatedly saw an eagle in my backyard when I returned from medical treatments, and began to photograph it. I drew it out digitally on the computer, and that was the inspiration behind my design.”
For every WWP Swiss Army Knife sold between May 20, 2016 and June 30, 2019, Victorinox Swiss Army, Inc. will donate 5% of the
manufacturer’s suggested retail price directly to the Wounded Warrior Project.
