+B logo Swiss Bianco Newsletter
 Issue 2013, vol. 1 
Hello!

It's been a good while since we had the last newsletter and a lot has happened in the meantime. I'm absolutely sad to hear that Wenger Swiss Army knives brand will be closed at the end of 2013 and I feel for all of the people I know there in Delemont.

The Consumer Electronics and SHOT shows in Las Vegas were huge this year and, while I was there we finally got the shipments from Switzerland with the latest copper and silver alox SAK runs. I am especially excited about two brand new models - the 93mm two main blade Carver and the 58mm alox Vagabond, both of which I like a lot!

Also new, from our friends at Gatco/Timberline, is the Scepter survival tool, a clever combination of a knife sharpener/firestarter combination in a pen size, made out of durable materials.

For 2013, we work on SAK designs and many more new and exciting items, such as the soon to be released 1911 pistol grips. We got our Swissbianco webshop up and running (currently shipping to US addresses only). More and more items will be added step by step, saving me some time to work on new projects. We are still working on the stock management aspect of the store, so I would like to ask that for items listed in this newsletter you still contact me directly through Contact Us form or email to order (Prices for non-US customers are listed in Canadian dollars).

Best Regards.
