To Reinhold Messner.
In the mountaineering and extreme sports scene there are especially many icons: People who perform extraordinary feats, experience dramas and literally go through highs and lows. Our Reinhold Messner Edition is dedicated to their passion and energy. Reinhold Messner is the most important figurehead of this guild. He was the first to climb Mount Everest without additional oxygen and also the first human to climb all fourteen eight-thousanders. The South Tyrolean has designed the pocket knives together with us and we are proud to have him as an ambassador in our small rope team.
In school we learned: There are 5 continents. Olympia has 5 rings. In geography and science today we speak of 7 to even 9 continents. So it’s not surprising that even in the mountaineering scene, there’s no consensus as to which are the seven peaks to climb if you want to climb the highest on every continent. Reinhold Messner has made his choice. For his personal claim, his career, but also for our mutual pocket knife edition.
The Reinhold Messner Seven Summits Edition has 3 tools with the 7 highest peaks from Africa, Antarctica, Oceania, Asia, Europe as well as North and South America.
For cutting, carving, screwing, tapping and opening bottles.
Mountains: Mount Everest, Kibo, Mount Vinson, Puncak Jaya, Elbrus, Denali, Aconcagua
Also amongst the summits there are icons. Some because of their height, others because of their degree of difficulty and again others because of their shape or location. Reinhold Messner was the first person to climb all eight-thousanders. Fourteen of them. Our pocket knife is a very special gift – whether for itself as a memory, for others as an incentive and for less ambitious mountain fans as an indispensable instrument in everyday life. The Reinhold Messner eight thousand meter edition shows 14 mountain peaks of the highest mountains in the world. Each pocket knife has 6 tools and 9 valuable functions for daily and unusual use: for cutting, carving, screwing, scraping, pulling corks, making holes, sewing or opening bottles and cans. It is always the mountains that perform the function.
Mountains: Mount Everest, Nanga Parbat, Hidden Peak – Gasherbrum I, Manaslu, Dhaulagiri, Cho Oyu, Makalu, Lhotse, Kangchendzönga, K2, Shishapangma, Gasherbrum II, Broad Peak, Annapurna
To go with the knife, this great gift set comes with a sleek genuine leather cover for the belt. In addition, a chain to attach the knife to your trouser bag, jacket pocket or backpack and the perfect tin can for your provisions during a short hike next sunday.
Reinhold Messner gave us and therefore you a huge gift: He gave us one of those ropes with which he himself went into the 8’000s. We took the liberty and cut souvenirs out of it. Together with a small snap hook. You won’t find a more individual gift anywhere – unless you climb to over 8’000 metres yourself. That’s where one gets breathless.
Did we promise too much? Or really exaggerated? It is a great gift for mountaineers or those who would like to become one.
