Extension of the award winning Swiss Modern Collection

The innovative Swiss Modern Collection was launched last year by Victorinox, makers of the legendary “Original Swiss Army Knife” since 1884. It was an immediate success and received the prestigious “Red Dot” design award shortly after. Now the collection is being expanded with the addition of a steak knife with wavy edges, an extra-wide carving knife as well as a carving fork. Complementing the existing range, these items are an immediate must-have for professional and hobby cooks alike.
