    Swiss classic, or just another fibrox?

    so i noticed recently that Victorinox, in all their wisdom, came out with a new series! they call it Swiss classic, and they look nice, but...
    i dont understand what so different about them? they're priced quite a bit higher (still dirt cheap compared to j-knives). i cant seem to find any difference other than the handles. can anyone else enlighten me?

    I'd agree with you that those are the Forschner Fibrox series. Clearly stamped, flat ground, fibrox handle. Same profile.

    It says: "Swiss Classic contemporary handle design". I would guess that is the only difference.

    but Victorinox was still stamped on their old Fibrox's. and it still doesnt explain the price jump.

    Don't you know that raising the price instantly makes it a better knife?

    Because they are trying to make more money.

    Man, those handles look barf-tastic.
