Swiss Modern Collection in Scandinavian rainbow colors

At the beginning of the year, Victorinox expanded its innovative Swiss Modern Collection to a total of five exclusive kitchen knives and a carving fork. Following the great popularity of the Swiss Modern wood collection, Victorinox now launches the collection with synthetic handles in fresh and classy Scandinavian colors.

Each of the five knives and the carving fork is available in an exclusive color, matching the current kitchen interior trends. The set provides the perfect combination for professional and amateur chefs alike. For long-standing connoisseurs of the collection, it is also available in classy black.

Maintaining the same functionality and elegance, the synthetic, anti-slip handles of these new colorful tools are made of convenient materials which are dishwasher safe and offer general easy care. The geometric shape of the handles creates a dynamic impact, imparting a contemporary feel to mankind’s oldest and most important tool whilst still boasting extraordinary robustness. As in the previous collection, the knives feature wear-resistant and stainless steel blades, fulfilling Victorinox’s very high quality standards. This aesthetic and discrete collection is a perfect set for any kitchen, aiding the chef to prepare everything at its best for a delightful evening with family and friends.

To start off the collection with synthetic handles, Victorinox launches six chef’s knives/tools and two sets - each with colored and black handles – along with an elegant black cutlery block. A further extension is already planned for 2020. All Swiss Modern products are lightweight, ergonomic and manufactured in Switzerland.
