Not that he’s endorsing it, but the people at Victorinox say that His Holiness uses one of their famous Swiss Army Knives — at least according to this new Bloomberg article.
Being that he’s an avid tinkerer, it only makes sense… (I’ve almost always had one; I can think of no other item that could make me feel, so much, like a boy and like “a man” at the same time. What with the saw, and the magnifying glass, and the little scissors, one was always ready. And then when you got older, you never had to look far for a corkscrew or a bottle opener…)
Anyway, odd for them to drop His Holiness’s name… But they dropped the Pope’s, too. Hitting all the Religious Knife-lover’s Market bases, I guess.
