Since the Victorinox company is based in Canton Schwyz, one canton over from Zug, we had to check it out.
There was a small museum that showed knives big:
|About the size of my forearm...|
|...with a lot of capabilities.|
|It's SO tiny!|
But the best part of our visit was the 'cutting edge' experience we had making our own knives!
OK, it was actually just assembling our own knives, but it was still very fun.
This is where the magic happens:
|At the assembly table...|
|...with the instructions.|
We diligently followed instructions:
And we were able to successfully assemble our own Spartan Swiss Army Knives!
Another perk to the assembly activity was that we got to engrave our knives any way we wanted! Melanie was impressed by our creative slogans:
|Maureen's nod to the Victorinox knife spring.|
|My first Swiss Army knife!|
|With a note to myself.|
|This was his idea.|
Today's poem barely made the 'cut':
sleek red case
tools tucked tight
watch the blades
they've got bite
