Victorinox Hardwood Cheese Knife

Victorinox Hardwood Cheese Knife, 2013 US release. The Victorinox Hardwood Cheese Knife is a three-layer 111mm liner-locking model, the second model/tool configuration to include the Cheese blade. It adds the 'opener-layer' to the original Cheese Knife, and features Bubinga wooden scales.

This model uses a slightly different liner-locking design to the other three-layer 111mm liner-lock models: The main-blade features a liner-lock, but located in an outside layer rather than the centre layer position established with the Trailmaster/Trekker. This configuration means the main-blade has a liner-lock, but the cap-lifter/screwdriver is non-locking. It includes the smaller/thinner (2mm wide) 'slide-lock' openers and the reamer with the sewing-eye, making this model an interesting hybrid of the side and liner lock 111mm designs.

Limited Edition, unspecified production.
