If you think about the typical Valentine’s Day gifts, whether it’s flowers or chocolates, they tend to lean on the temporary side of gifting. Here at Worn & Wound, we like our gifts to be much for long-lasting and put the fun into functional. So who wouldn’t love to get some bright red Victorinox gear to celebrate a day typically full of red bouquets that’ll decay or red boxes of sweets that’ll disappear more quickly than they probably should. We know we’d choose a Victorinox for Valentine’s Day.
Let’s begin with the basics. It doesn’t get much more iconic or giftable than the Classic Swiss Army Knife by Victorinox. Founded in the late 1800s, Victorinox has been making Swiss Army Knives in their own factory for over 100 years. These small, keychain-friendly multi-tools are just the right size for a variety of daily tasks. The immediately recognizable rounded rectangle shape has three fold-out tools and two slots for a toothpick and a handy set of tweezers. At a scant 58mm long and only 9mm thick, the Classic SD’s three fold-out tools are small, yet functional. A stainless steel plain edge blade is joined by a nail file/screwdriver and a set of surprisingly capable scissors. For under $20, it’s tough to find a gift that’s as useful as the trusty little Classic SD.
You’ll be amazed at how many tools Victorinox has packed into the Swiss Card Classic. And your Valentine will be pleasantly surprised at how often they’ll need one of those tools tucked away inside and think every time they use it. The list of functions is wildly diverse. The Swiss Card Classic includes: scissors, a nail file, a screwdriver 2.5, a toothpick, tweezers, a small blade, and even a handy ballpoint pen. Be sure to write this one on your Valentine’s Day wishlist.
When you hear the words Swiss Army Knife, chances are you think of the legendary Officer’s knife. And that legend continues with the Spartan pocket knife. This is the pocket knife that started it all. The one that helped people all around the world to get the job done. And wherever your everyday adventures take you, the Spartan is ready. Why is this such a great Valentine’s Day gift? Well, it makes that romantic getaway all the more manageable by inspiring adventure and packing that all-important wine-popping corkscrew—which is a must have when the time is right.
For a watch enthusiast, nothing says I love you like yet another new watch, since it validates this shared passion even more. And Victorinox stands at the ready with the indispensable Fieldforce Classic Chrono boasting a striking red second hand with a Swiss Army Knife-shaped counterweight and the iconic red cross and shield on the dial. It offers unsurpassed day and night visibility thanks to the health offering Super-LumiNova® on the dial. With chronograph functions and a tachymeter scale, the Fieldforce Classic pays tribute to Victorinox’s roots with a rugged, yet refined design.
A paring knife is every chef’s go-to tool for precision jobs in the kitchen, and the Victorinox Swiss Classic Paring Knife is a perfect way to tell your Valentine, yes… I’ll slice and serve you your favorite fruit on a platter. Whatever their favorite healthy snack is, the Classic Paring Knife, with its ultra-sharp straight edge and ergonomic handle, will result in dishes that are as beautiful as they are nutritious.
