Victorinox launches first Damast Household Knife

The Swiss Modern Santoku Damast Limited Edition 2020 heralds another first for Victorinox. Damast steel, integral to the brand’s history, now makes its debut appearance in the household knives range. To mark the occasion, this high-quality chef’s tool is limited to a symbolic number of 1884, the founding year of Victorinox.

Not just a knife, the Swiss Modern Santoku Damast is a statement. Representing ancient craftsmanship, its blade is made from Damascus steel, produced in layers for incredible toughness. With its lively pattern, the Damast steel used for this knife cleverly combines corrosion resistance and superior strengths with an eye-catching look.

Damast steel has enjoyed a very popular role in the history of Victorinox. For many years, limited editions of the Swiss Army Knife have been produced using different kinds of this fine material, now employed for the first time in a Victorinox household knife.

A truly efficient kitchen tool, the Santoku knife is known as the “knife of the three virtues”, effortlessly handling and slicing through meat, fruit and vegetables. It is the perfect instrument for amateur and professional chefs alike.

Each knife is genuinely unique thanks to its handle made of European walnut wood, endowed with a rich grain and dark brown color. Unbelievably warm to the touch, the ergonomically formed handle gives mankind’s oldest and most important tool a contemporary and comfortable feel.

The Swiss Modern Collection is one of the brand’s innovative knife collections. Following its great popularity, Victorinox expanded the collection last year to a total of seven exclusive kitchen knives and a carving fork. Besides the wood collection, the kitchen tools are also available with synthetic handles.

Handcrafted in Switzerland, the new Swiss Modern Santoku Damast knife is a testimony to the brand’s longstanding expertise as one of the world’s leading knife manufacturers. It combines strength, elegance and high-performance functionality. Limited to 1,884 knives, each piece is engraved with the year and sequential numbering on the back of the handle.

The Swiss Modern Santoku Damast can be purchased in specialty shops, in Victorinox stores and online. Victorinox guarantees all knives and tools to be of first-class stainless steel. Each item has a life-time guarantee against any defects in material and workmanship.
