The survivor
It's always there, and it has what it takes



Which animal(s) did you choose as a visual and why?

I have chosen the wolf - A legendary animal for a legendary knife. Both inspire respect and can be a great companion. Once a wolf has found a mate, they usually stay together for life, kind of what happens when someone gets his Swiss Army Knife.

What culture or region does the animal stand for?

The wolves are actually pretty common animals, and in Romanian history, it was the standard ensign of troops of the ancient Dacian people.

What story does your design tell?

I can easily see a resemblance between a pack of wolves and this knife. Like this knife, the wolves are beautiful, they have remarkable endurance and they are useful. In the same way that in a pack of wolves each individual brings a new skill to the group, each tool of the knife contributes to made it more powerful. I used the falling snow effect to bring some color, and also, for a touch of mystery.

What style did you choose for your design and why?

Art / vector design - the power of habit :)
