Victorinox’s Victoria collection consists of Swiss Army knives — bascially just a regular Executive model — with a twist: they feature engraved blades and a freakin’ gold or platinum handle with 430 diamonds inlaid into each knife.  At least they didn’t go overboard.  I mean, 500 stones would have just been excessive, yeah?

These shiny twins are just about the dead opposite from my Pioneer.  The Pioneer goes for around $20 while the full-bling Victoria version weighs in at $70,000.  That’s the platinum model.  The gold model’s available for $50,000 for those ballin’ on a budget.

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say these were created for the top level Victorinox execs and “friends of the company” that have an affinity for trinkets of this nature.  I’m also guessing that only a few of the 120 constructed will ever hit the street.  Still, they’re nice to look at.

    So both are $70,000?

    I’m sorry – but if I had $70,000 burning a hole in my pocket, I’d have my wife a BMW X5, or a new Corvette and enough change to buy an E39 BMW M5.

    Or better yet – a dream workshop with the works.

    Rick: I’m guessing these are made for people who already have those things. In short: not me. 🙂

    Guess this wouldn’t be the knife you’d peel an apple with or use to dig out a sliver. Then again, if you could afford one of these, you’d have people to peel your apples.

    how much does it cost to replace the platinum toothpick when you eventually lose it?
