What‘s better than a Swiss army knife, the most iconic of man-friendly pocket tools? How about the Pioneer Nespresso, a knife that’s helping you do your part for the environment?
We live in a world that revolves around convenience, which can be great but can also have its downside. Think about your morning coffee routine – either you’re popping a pod into your home or office machine, or you’re grabbing a takeaway cup between the two. This leads to a lot of plastic that needs to be sustainably dealt with.
Victorinox, makers of the globally-recognized pocket knife (cue MacGyver intro music), and fellow Swiss success story Nespresso, makers of dead-easy coffee machines, have teamed up to create the limited-edition Pioneer Nespresso, a knife made from a very special aluminium.
The new Pioneer Nespresso pocket knife, limited to 750 pieces and presented in a warm caramel brown based on the coffee company’s Livanto blend, features a casing made from recycled Nespresso capsules – 24 pods per knife in fact – which are sourced from around the world thanks to partnerships with participating national postal services.
The new pocket knife features a main blade, a can opener, two screwdrivers, a hole punch, a wire stripper and that oh-so-important bottle opener.
This isn’t the first collaboration between the two Swiss brands; Victorinox created a purple knife based on the Arpeggio Grand Cru last year as part of the 25th anniversary of Nespresso’s aluminium capsule recycling program.
