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.
