New knife gets issued to Swiss soldiers

The Swiss military had solicited bids for a new folding soldiers knife to be issued at the beginning of this year. Victorinox was once again awarded the contract (no surprise there eye roll ). The new knife if actually pretty cool, it's really just a modified version of the Victorinox Trekker, but with an olive drab handle. This has locking tools on it and a useful saw, just seems much more useful that the older aluminum handled non-locking bladed knife. It's supposed to be available to the public on the commercial market later this spring. See Victorinox website.

This is a really nice looking knife. Here's a link to the page on the Victorinox site:
