Cheryl and I dropped by the Victorinox factory store in Monroe CT recently. This location serves as their North American headquarters and also offers a store that’s open to the public. They had a tremendous assortment of Swiss Army knives, cutlery, precision watches (male and female), perfume, as well as luggage. All branded with their name. I’m told Swiss Army also has a line of clothing (I did not see that at this location). I also must say these watches are absolutely gorgeous. I was told that they purchase “the works” from a known manufacturer in Switzerland and make all the other components.
The draw for me are the pocket knives. I have a small collection that I started about 15 years ago and add to periodically. I already own a couple of nice Swiss Army knives and purchased the while I was there along with a collectors book about the history of Swiss Army knives (see attached photo I took). I saved about 40%. It was a great buy! I put it in my collection but I’m not sure it’s going to last. I so badly want to carry this knife in my pocket. What a beautiful piece!
