Die Zecken-ApSWIZA TICK TOOL
A WORLD FIRST IN A SWISS KNIFE
Known for leading with innovative designs and cutting-edge products, SWIZA introduces the new SWIZA TICK TOOL. With a pending patent, this is the rst Swiss Knife that includes a tool speci cally designed to remove ticks. Because the urban rebel isn’t con ned to the city.
“Comparing the SWIZA TICK TOOL to other tick-removal devices, it is a very good solution to enable pocket knife users to remove a tick. It perfectly complements our tick-prevention app, because when it comes to tick bites, it is very important to react quickly and remove the tick as early as possible, in the correct way,” says Prof. Dr Jürg Grunder, co-founder of the ZHAW Spin-off A&K Strategy GMbH that has developed an app for information on ticks.
SWIZA believes in safety always. People who enjoy walking outdoors, especially in tall grassy areas and woodlands, are at higher risk of being bitten by a tick, especially during the spring and summer months. Whether you travel to these areas for business or pleasure, be sure to protect yourself by wearing appropriate clothing, and always carrying a SWIZA TICK TOOL to safely remove any ticks from yourself, your family or your pets.
Top quality finishes and using only premium materials are signature to SWIZA, sure to please all who appreciate contemporary design and sophisticated form. As with all SWIZA Swiss Knives, the SWIZA TICK TOOL is made in Delémont, to the high quality standards of Switzerland.
Swiss made quality
The SWIZA TICK TOOL’s 75 mm blade is forged from a chrome and molybdenum alloy to obtain an extra strong, durable and tenacious blade and polished to an impervious stainless steel nish (440/57 HRc stainless steel) with a die-cut slot on the spine for easy opening with either the left or right hand. Equipped with an ingenious safety locking system, folding the blade back is as simple as pressing on the SWIZA cross, beautifully integrated in the soft-touch handle. As with all SWIZA pocket knives, the tools and plates of the SWIZA TICK TOOL have expert nishing and edging applied, and the ergonomic shape makes all tools easily accessible. The knife is available in our four exciting colours : SWIZA Red, Ebony Black, Orange, or Olive Camouflage.
The added tick tool is an inventive idea from the brand that already has a Red Dot Award for stylish design under their belt : the integrated magnifying glass makes it easy to locate the tiny parasite and it’s made of plastic to provide the exibility you need to position the tool in the right place. The v-shaped cleft tip of the tick tool is particularly ef cient to remove the tick, and SWIZA’s quality guarantee ensures easy replacement of the tick tool should it break. By removing the tick as soon as possible, you’ll reduce the chance of getting infected with Lyme Disease. Providing you with the right tool for the job is just another reason why SWIZA continues to innovate and challenge the norm of Swiss Knife design.
