Hi. I’m Marc!
My hobby is collecting Swiss Army knives.
Ever since I was little, I used to take my father’s knives to sharpen everything i had in my hands and play with it. I was born in Spain but I actually i live in Switzerland since 2012, I had some Victorinox but it was not until 2018 that I started collecting real Swiss Army knives. You know… you enter a group or forum, you see the number of knives/models that exist and that’s where the madness begins.
At the beginning, I started looking for stores and markets for friends of the groups where I was, I didn’t stay with many. Until I started to investigate more about and then I said… this one for me, oh that looks nice too!
I currently have about 1,300 pieces, between Wenger and Victorinox. I like them in general for their elegant design and quality, you have hundreds of models to choose from and thousands of possibilities with the scales.
At the beginning of 2019, I had the opportunity to buy an entire collection, with more than 500 units, many of which did not interest me at the time. As some of you may already know, I decided to open a page on Facebook to try to put out all those pieces that I already had or hadn’t just caught my attention, and it wasn’t bad at all. With the money raised I continued to buy more pieces, both for my collection and to offer to other collectors. Let’s say I found a way to self-finance my purchases.
Over time, other collectors even contacted me to ask if I could get a specific piece, that’s when I decided to visit all the stores that sold Swiss Army knives wherever i was.
A few years later, I decided to give a better overview of all the material that has been accumulated during this time and I opened this page, I hope it helps and you have fun looking at it!
