Houndstooth is more popular than ever. This Victorinox Swiss Army Classic is wrapped in it from front to back, however, instead of a monochrome palette, this knife is full of colour. Brown, green and blue represent all terrains from alpine to land and water, and red of course is Swiss. A perfect palette for the perfect Swiss tool that travels the globe.

Is there a special story behind your design?
This concept was inspired by military camouflage patterns. However, the Victorinox Swiss Army Classic is a tool for everyone, especially city dwellers. Houndstooth is camouflage for the urban wayfarer, and the patterning reflects this knife's multi-user appeal.
