Victorinox Wallpaper* Cuts "Jamie Cullen / James Joyce"

This Victorinox Climber is a part of the tripartite edition designed by the artists James Joyce and Jamie Cullen. There are only 100 pieces made of each worldwide and are normally only sold in Londen, but thanks to an exceptional chance, I found one for a very low price at the Outlet store in Roermond. Each knife comes in a nice black cardboard box with silver text. This knife was designed by Jamie Cullen and was developed as an collaboration between Victorinox an Wallpaper in 2009. One thing I really miss with this kind of knives, is a certificate or at least a serial number etched/engraved, just to show the customer that he has something special. A beautiful knife with a nice design, now on it's way to the display cabinet... Here's some info about the product presentation anno 2009 : Jamie Cullen will be exhibiting his limited edition Swiss Army Knife design along side James Joyce and the Wallpaper* creative team at Victorinox’s London Flagship Store from September 21st. Wallpaper Cuts: A unique collaboration between Wallpaper and Victorinox, celebrating the beautifully useful Swiss Army Knife. Three limited edition knives with designs by Wallpaper* and the artists James Joyce and Jamie Cullen. The launch of the exclusive bespoke designs and will be hosted by the creative team at Wallpaper* and Victorinox. The London flagship store venue will be the exclusive retail outlet for the limited Edition Swiss Army Knives for the duration of London Design Festival and they will be available at the event for the first time.

Update : I went back to Roermond today and bought the James Joyce edition too. After some closer inspection, this one looks even nicer then the previous one. Too bad the third one (wooden edition) was already sold out. These are very unique pieces with a nice story, and I can only recommend to buy one if you're near Roermond.

RETAIL PRICE : 120 euro
OUTLET PRICE : 78 euro
