Victorinox Limited Edition 2011 Damascus Climber

Victorinox Limited Edition 2011 Damascus Climber

In 2011, Victorinox offered another model with a Damascus steel blade, following the 2010 Damascus Pioneer. The Damascus Climber comes with very dark brown, almost black Ebony wood scales and has its serial number stamped into the liner near the corkscrew. Production was limited to 4000 pieces.

It has a unique tool layout: it is basically a Spartan with fish scaler tool (or an Angler without pliers). There is a silver battle scene

Victorinox has just announced a new series of Limited Edition Classic knives. They come in 10 different designs and will be available until June 2012. I like the Technology Trash design.

Or, just give us 91mm replacement scales like these ones! :)
