I like the Olive color scales used on some Swiza models. This is my latest Swiza knife and this is the D07.
It is an interesting design on the scissors that I have shown before here on my page. This model got a good selection of functions. Olive green is a color that reflects aspects of nature for me
while some have this shade to be more “army style”. It is also as the name say “olive” referring to the fruit.
On SAKs and Swiss knives colors and shades may have a big influence for people.
I find it just as interesting and fun each and every time I look over the functions, construction and assembly on the knives. To see if I could learn something new or just doing the regular quality control. It is very nice. What development we will
see in the future is going to be interesting. What evolution Swiza knives will have in the future for their products and design? There is already some evolution to see from the beginning until today. I took a look at their website and learned that the D07
is made with a large number of colors. For me I can never have enough colors on knives. To just have one spectrum or limited collecting areas then I get bored.
I have also some interesting info about the steel used in the Swiza knife blades. It is referred to as 440 Steel with 57HRC. I have asked a couple of times and I got a nice reply from the Brand. I knew from before that there is
a difference between US and European standard on the AISI 440. This means that I do not believe it is 440A, B or C. I totally understand that Swiza do not reveal exactly what reference. It seems it could be DIN reference steel they use and from experience
this can be very different from the 440A, B or C. I would so far have it to be a European steel used.
The D07 blade and scissors came very sharp out of the box. All well!
