A beautiful set of iconic silkscreen national parks posters created by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) between 1938 and 1941 were missing for almost five decades. Park Ranger and artist Doug Leen couldn’t let them go to waste, so he set out on a mission to retrieve them, recovering 12 of the original 14 designs. Now you can enjoy nine of the designs in the Victorinox Ranger Of The Lost Art National Park Swiss Army Knife Collection.

The original WPA posters were made to encourage tourism and the preservation of our beloved national parks, which is the same message Victorinox and Ranger Leen want to present with their new knife collection. There are six WPA national parks posters depicted in this lineup by Leen, including the ones for Mount Rainier, Yellowstone, and Rocky Mountain National Park. Each 2.28-inch Classic SD Swiss Army Knife features everything you need in an all-around multi-tool, such as a small blade, toothpick, tweezers, and a nail file with a screwdriver tip. All of the Victorinox multi-tools in the collection come with a lifetime warranty and are available right now for $22.

Purchase: $22
