+B logo Swiss Bianco Newsletter
 Issue 2011, vol. 5 

On July 4, 2011, we got an unexpected surprise - a nice letter from the ATF - the Swiss Bianco FFL papers, licensing us as a US gun dealer, importer of firearms, and a manufacturer of ammo. It was a nice touch that we got the letter on the way to watch the local fireworks celebrating US Independence Day. We worked on toward this goal since the early 1990s, starting in Switzerland, with the local bureaucrats doing all they could to prevent that, influencing my decision to emigrate to the USA, where all is possible! In the near future Swiss Bianco will make splash multi-color anodised firearms with matching flashlights and knives. Later, we are aiming to develop new kinds of ammo and firearms, all Swiss Bianco design.

In the meantime, we have some new splash work and SAKs to offer to our newsletter subscribers. While we are still not able to offer international shipping, we are actively working on building a local dealer network.
Splash Zena Rex Peeler
During the Blade Show we made the first run of the Swiss-made Zena Rex Tactical Potato (and other fruit/vegetable) Peeler. This one is a Swiss classic, every Swiss household has one of these, in standard silver colour. We made a couple of test splash patterns and were very happy with the results. So, for this newsletter we made a run with this hard-anodised finish, handmade in USA, making each pattern unique, like a fingerprint. We are so happy with the look of the pattern that some SAKs will be sure to follow!

The price for the peeler is $15 each, different colours/patterns, please inquire about availability.
