Victorinox Hardwood Cheese Knife

Victorinox Hardwood Cheese Knife, 2013 US release. The Victorinox Hardwood Cheese Knife is a 3-layer 111mm liner-locking model, the second model/tool-configuration to include the Cheese Knife blade. It adds the 'opener' layer to the original Cheese Knife, and features hardwood scales.

It uses a slightly different liner locking design to the other 3-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 Trekker. This configuration allows the main-blade to have a lock, but the cap-lifter/screwdriver is non-locking.

It also includes the smaller/thinner (2mm wide) openers and the reamer with the sewing-eye, usually only found on slide-lock series models, making this knife a hybrid of the side and liner lock 111mm designs.

Limited Edition, unspecified production.
