Victorinox Swiss Army, with a 130-year heritage of quality and innovation in blade design, introduces the Delemont Collection, a complete new line of Swiss Army Knives offering a variety of unique features, tools and styles across 52 knives. The Delemont Collection, which is being introduced at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in Salt Lake City this week, marks the first collaboration between Victorinox Swiss Army and Wenger, which joined forces last year.
The Delemont Collection is comprised of four separate handle designs, including the Evolution, EvoGrip, EvoWood and RangerGrip across a range of three different sizes. The collection includes a 65 MM knife featuring a deployable nail clipper, as well as a variety of 85 MM knives with the EvoWood, EvoGrip and Evolution handles. The line concludes with a series of large, 130 MM knives featuring the RangerGrip and RangerWood handles. The knives in the collection offer a wide variety of special features and tools; however, the signature feature is a contoured, ergonomic handle, which makes the knives easier to grip. The contoured handle design offers a more comfortable, non-slip grip even when wearing gloves or in wet conditions.
RangerGrip 74 – The 130 MM RangerGrip 74 is designed for serious outdoor adventures and includes a variety of heavy-duty tools, including a 3.9″ locking blade and a deployable needle nose pliers equipped with a wire cutter and nut wrench. The knife features an ergonomic handle with non-slip inserts to help improve grip even in wet conditions.
In addition to the contoured, ergonomic handles, the Delemont Collection includes a variety of unique features and tools. Highlights include: a deployable needle nose pliers; a heavy-duty nail clipper; a universal wrench for M3-M5 nuts; an integrated rotating compass; a shackle opener with marlin spike and ruler; a knife body with an integrated bit holder; and a lever designed serrated-edge scissors. Some of the noteworthy new knives in the collection include:
— Nail Clip 580 – This 65 MM knife comes with all the essentials, including a 1.75″ blade, nail file, scissors, tweezers and toothpick. It
also incorporates a retractable, heavy-duty nail clipper and cleaner. It is the perfect tool to tackle everyday needs and is small enough to fit
in a pocket, backpack or glove box.
— EvoWood 14 – The 85 MM handle on this EvoWood 14 is constructed from sustainable walnut wood, which is repurposed from excess production
materials. The walnut is finished with a rich, dark stain giving each knife unique shades and grain patterns. The knife features a 2.5″ blade
along with a variety of other functional tools.
— EvoGrip S18 – At 85 MM, the EvoGrip S18 is an ideal mid-sized knife and fits perfectly in-hand thanks to the ergonomic, contoured handle with
non-slip inserts. A veritable tool chest for the outdoor enthusiast, the 2.75″ double-cut wood saw can tackle much larger jobs than its size
would indicate. Along with 14 other useful functions, the EvoGrip S18 is a stand-out in its striking, bright yellow finish.
