Limited Edition Huntsman «Year of the Rat»

With the new Limited Edition Huntsman «Year of the Rat», Swiss precision meets the Chinese zodiac. Each year Victorinox launches a new Huntsman pocket knife to welcome the Chinese New Year and honor the current zodiac sign. 2020 is the year of the rat, an agile, smart and flexible animal which can always save the situation and stay positive. This item is set to make 2020 a shining and positive year full of happiness.

The legend has it that a rat brought fire and grains from heaven to the world to keep humans warm and well-fed and was thus named the first zodiac animal in recognition of its contribution. The Huntsman «Year of the Rat» is a tribute to these agile and smart animals we celebrate and honor in 2020. This Limited Edition comes in classic red with a lively filigree drawing of a golden rat. Limited to 8’000 pieces worldwide, it involves the lucky number 8.

Rats are celebrated for their miraculous ability to protect themselves and human beings against various threats. The tiny animals are alert and clever and have a strong intuition for detecting potential dangers. As a symbol of longevity and good health, this righteous and modest animal can produce a lot of offspring, making it an icon of fertility.

Each Huntsman «Year of the Rat» is individually numbered and comes together with its certificate in a special gift box. It is the perfect present for people born in the year of the rat as well as a great piece for collectors and tourists.

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.
