Designing the next Classic pocket knife

At Victorinox we love fresh and undiscovered ideas. That’s why we started the annual Victorinox Design Contest, where fans and design lovers can submit their ideas for the new Classic Limited Edition knives.

See the submissions, read about our designers or become a designer yourself and join the Victorinox Design Contest.

End of the submission period

We received 2’529 design ideas from 91 countries worldwide. A big thank you to all designers for their creative, stunning and funny designs. Global voting starts September 2nd, where you have the chance to decide which 10 designs will become part of the Classic Limited Edition 2021 collection and will be available as of next year worldwide.

Classic Limited Edition Design Contest 2021: the Briefing

This year is the 10th anniversary of our much-loved Classic Limited Edition Design Contest and we celebrate this milestone with yet another exciting challenge: to create a design for our 2021 “Patterns of the World” collection. We invite you to submit designs which show your favorite pattern on the 58 mm Classic pocket knife. You can use both sides of the knife to express your Patterns of the World design idea, but you should focus primarily on the front where the Victorinox Cross&Shield logo is.

Patterns can be found everywhere in the world, across all cultures and centuries. Here are some possible directions:

  • Use popular and globally known patterns or use specific local and traditional patterns
  • Take inspiration from natural patterns like ice crystals, to technical patterns like flooring and façades
  • An idea could come from a simple pattern like a chequerboard to a fancy fashion print

Just like Victorinox, your design should be creative, iconic and emotional. We are looking for something truly unique and inspiring, designed by you!

Deadline for the submission of "Patterns of the World" designs: 17 April to 29 May 2020.

Meet the Designers

Jaime Moroldo Lira & Endgork Moroldo / Spain

For this design, we were inspired by an assortment of sports equipment used in the world of sports. Usually, these can be a bit dull, but we gave it a unique and fresh look by stylizing the shapes found on those objects and by applying a unique colour palette. We hope Victorinox fans enjoy this design as much as we enjoyed making it.

Inspiration ... I am a football fan so I could not have imagined such a collection without a pocket knife of classic football and national flags on the back of a pocket knife that symbolize the global popularity of this sport.

My winning proposal, called Deep Dive revolves around the idea of absolute freedom, which is the very first feeling you experience while Scuba Diving into the deep oceans. I wanted to illustrate a sport that allows you to explore the underwater world filled with infinite life, colour and beauty.
