Malvaux Model No. 1 Knife

Dec 21, 2016

Category: Gear

The Swiss Army Knife is widely heralded as one of the greatest tools ever to have been invented. However, as a folding knife, it does have its drawbacks. For instance, the straight handle isn’t what one might call ergonomic. Nor is the blade easily opened. In spite of those downsides, the knife has gone largely unchanged over the course of about a century. That is, until now.

With the introduction of the Model Number 1, Malvaux has endeavored to change the Swiss Army Knife as we know it. This one sports a clever and more ergonomic curved handle that makes the blade more easily deployed. Assembled by hand in the Jura region of Switzerland, this heirloom quality blade is as gorgeous as it is both useful and durable. The easily replaceable blade is made from precision water-jet cut stainless steel before its refined and sharpened “to the max.” And the shell is crafted from CNC milled anodized aluminum, which comes in either bonfire orange or slate. These limited edition knives (only 150 of each color way were made) retail for $243. [Purchase]
