On a beautiful, clear morning, one creative idea emerged to a viewer viewing Säntis, the tallest mountain in the Alpstein massif of northeastern Switzerland. The very fine idea was to harness the unrivaled, breathtaking beauty of the Swiss Alps and other mountain ranges, and to point to beautiful things in this world in the forms of knives as picturesque as real as seen by eyes. And, the resulting product is Panoramic Knives which can be well described as part functional bread knives and part display piece, a panoramic view, a review, and reminder of something beautiful that is not always immediately available. Impressively mimicking the silhouettes of peaks in various sections of the breathtaking Alps, these Panoramic Knives are available in three variants, including the one displaying the Lake Constance panorama, another Saas Fee Panorama and the third one mirroring the Berner Oberland Panorama. However, we have also earlier seen some fancy knives for the likes of discerning individuals including the William Henry's bejeweled knives, the Wenger's Porsche Design Knives, the world’s finest chef's knife, and the most expensive diamond-studded kitchen knife, to name a few.
Knives are available with two types of handles: rosewood and plastic, while the sides of the blade come labeled with markings for each peak, along with the name and its particular elevation as well.
The manufacturer of these Panorama Knives is a relatively new company, which looks forward to develop some more panoramas quite soon, including the ones inspired by the the Valais with the Matterhorn, Lucerne by Pilate on the Titlis to Rigi and Zurich, which boasts a wonderful view of the Glarus Alps.
Lake Constance Panorama
One of the largest on the continent of Europe, the Lake Constance which connects Germany with Austria and Switzerland is the inspiration behind this knife. It mirrors the Alpstein which combines the views of the villages and cities of Constance, Konstanz, Meersburg, Immenstaad, Hagnau, Friedrichshafen, Lindau or Langenargen. But also from the Thurgau and from the canton of St. Gallen, the solid forms with the Säntis as the center a wonderful setting.
