Victorinox Spartan PS

These two limited edition knives are the Spartan PS from Victorinox.

The Spartan is probably the most widely recognized Swiss Army knife around the world. I’ve posted a couple of pictures here on the blog of other Spartans that I own.

The PS stands for “polispectral”, which is apparently a special coating on the tools that give them a grey/black look depending on the light. The tools feel extremely smooth to the touch, which I imagine also has to do with coating.

I can’t speak for the durability of the coating, but it sure does look nice! I’m not sure how these will hold up to hard use like other Swiss Army knives. I suppose only time will tell.. But for now, I’ll enjoy the unique look that the coating gives these knives.

Side note – I imagine that if stormtroopers carried a Swiss Army knife, the white Spartan PS would probably be standard issue..
