Newly Swissed: Find Swiss mountains in your panorama knife

Newly Swissed: Find Swiss mountains in your panorama knife

Comments0 comments

Panorama knives mimic the slopes of the Swiss Mountains, allowing you to indulge in a little nostalgia as you use them. Can you spot the Matterhorn peak?

Whenever we go for a hike or spend a day of skiing in Switzerland, we will bring a local map outlining all the surrounding peaks. Mamiko is usually very keen on knowing all the mountain names, for instance during our recent trip to Beatenberg in the Bernese Oberland: Wetterhorn, Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau and Niesen.

The makers of the original Panorama Knife, a family business in Ermatingen, have come up with an ingenious product: The blades of their Swiss-made bread knives are shaped according to panoramic vistas in Switzerland, and each peak has a name label (for Mamiko)! Depending on the edition, each knife mimics the slopes and valleys of a particular mountain range, such as the Bernese Oberland, the Valais, Lake Constance or Zurich.

Not only does the Panorama Knife allow you to relive those hikes and skiing adventures in your own kitchen, but it also does what it is supposed to be good at: Slice loaves of Swiss breads!
