Thilo Fuente, a Swiss designer, has teamed up with Wenger to redesign the iconic Swiss Army Knife, which the company originated back in 1896. The new concept knife endeavors to ”strengthen the original design values by quoting the great classics and modernising some of the most characteristic details.” Each of these concept designs are the real deal, made from anodized aluminum and original Wenger blade steel.

The knife has a number of interesting concepts, including two new angles on the pocket knife, new safety features, and a deconstructed wrench set.
