Karl Elsener Ltd Ed Commemorative Coin Set 2pce

Product Number: 576698
Introducing a cult classic, a collector’s item and a global Victorinox celebration: The Karl Elsener Commemorative Coin Set was created to mark the centenary of the death of pioneer Master Cutler and Victorinox founder, Karl Elsener.

In 1891, Karl Elsener invented the “Soldier’s Knife”, which was followed a few years later by the Offiziermesser – the “Officer’s Knife”. They were the Swiss Army’s best kept secret…until much later, during World War II, when American GIs working with the Swiss saw the Swiss’ pocket knives in action…and wanted one for themselves! Understandably, they couldn’t pronounce “Offiziermesser”…so the Americans simply referred to them as “Swiss Army Knives”. This was a key moment for the cult classic.

Limited to just 8,000 pieces worldwide, this special set includes a 20 franc silver commemorative coin produced by Swissmint and designed by graphic designer Nadja Baltensweiler. Plus, an exclusive edition of the Huntsman pocket knife adorned with the signature of Karl Elsener himself. It’s something to treasure each time you use it.
