It is time for some knife talk and i will use the opportunity to show a very special set that i actually got today. Swiza is a knife Brand that during the very last years has received much attention around the world. It
quickly developed a reputation to be a quality product. At the very end of 2017 The Swiza Brand introduced a Limited Set with only 300 pieces made, this means it is ultra-rare. I did not believe that I would manage to get one set because 300 pieces is honestly
such a low number that it speaks for itself and also that I was a bit late to look for it. I am very grateful that I could secure one set and to be able to show this here on SAKhome.com. I absolutely love quality pocket knives and these are above and beyond.
There are four knives in the special quality box. Opening the box i found out without severe consequences the four Swiza knives with different artwork on the handles. The functions are matt black coated. I consider myself humble and extremely grateful for
owning such a special set that I will show individually in the coming days. The box is numbered with 161/300 and this means each set got an individual number.
The topic with the artwork on the handle scales is the
four seasons and the first knife I will show in detail is the D04 Winter edition, with the ski topic beautifully designed on the white handle side. The D04 got the Phillips screwdriver, awl, knife blade, and flat screwdriver with cap opener and bending notch,
can-opener with flat screwdriver tip and tweezers well hidden in the handle side. The "all black" finish is actually PVD titanium nitride coating that serves several functions - More than just for the obvious appearance and design. Liners, locking-liner and
functions are covered.
The fit and finish is excellent executed on the D04 with a good locking mechanism. In my opinion nothing can compare to versatile pocket knives with functions. It is just a match made in heaven
for the modern world.
If you study some of my pages on Swiza knives you can see some information on the construction and functions. They are high technology made products with the typical Swiss precision.
Titanium nitride coating got several positive factors for stainless steel. It will increase the corrosion abilities on the already high grade stainless steel. It will increase the surface hardness on the functions and it will
prevent discolorations on the steel. The coating will boost the wear resistance and scratches that appears from use will be on the PVD coating and not on the stainless steel. The knife blade edge will not have the coating. It will therefor continue to have
the 57 Rockwell (HRC) that this steel is recommended at for the best cutting abilities. For pocket-knives this is a versatile area that is extremely easy to sharpen. It is done in seconds. This set is designed for use but for sure it will remain unused for
collecting and knowledge only.
"The contrast between the black and white is beautiful"
The Swiza Brand is reinventing the Swiss knife,
The reason for why this set was only made in 300 totally worldwide? It is interesting to wonder on and the number 300 in mythology is very heavy for me and perhaps directed at the 300 Spartans....
