Ambassador RocKnife - Rosa Betha Granite – Sardinia
VICTORINOX SWISS ARMY ROCKNIVES: A Gift That Stands The Test of Time –
Victorinox presents pocket knives with polished stone handles from six different regions of the world. The handles are precision-cut granite, famous for its beauty, strength, and durability. Granite has been chosen for centuries for monuments and works of art because it stands the test of time. Each RocKnife features a pen blade, scissors, and nail file, and is packaged in an attractive gift box.
The Victorinox RocKnives Series was introduced in late 1988. Initially each RocKnife was a 74mm Ambassador model knife with stone handles. The series features 6 stone variations, each from a separate country. Later a second series of RocKnives was introduced based on the Victorinox 58mm Classic model. The Classic series features the same stone scales. Victorinox filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office on January 17, 1989 to trademark the term “RocKnife” and was granted the US federal trademark on August 22, 1989.
Rosa Betha – The mountainous Mediterranean island of Sardinia is rich in customs and traditions. The mines in Sardinia bring us this rich looking granite in traditional gray tones with tan highlights.
