Montanara Covid-19 penknife

 

 

The Covid-19 Pandemic has hit Montanara as a small business very hard. From 16th March to 10th May 2020 we were forbidden by the State to carry out our job and profession as mountain guides. This has been a very unsettling and insecure time for us, in what was our peak season. We will not be able to make up this loss of income.

 

However, it is of paramount importance that we all remain healthy.

 

Thinking the situation through, we had the idea that we could produce these very special Montanara Covid-19 penknives, made by Victorinox from elegant nut wood and engraved, and sell them to you, our guests. The penknives are a limited special edition.

 

The price is CHF 100 per penknife. Higher contributions are also welcome.

 

On the front face of the penknife is the original Montanara logo, engraved by laser into the wood.

 

The back of the penknife depicts the laser-engraved text in Urner dialect: "I triiwr Frindschaft trotz Covid-19 Zittä" which translates as "In true friendship despite the time of Covid-19".

 

You may order the penknife directly from us by email (info@montanara.ch) (to order by E-Mail) or by telephone (+41 41 878 12 59).

 

Thank you for your generous support, and we hope to welcome you again very soon in our wonderful mountain world of adventures.

 

Alex Gisler, Mountain Guide and Owner of Montanara Bergerlebnisse and the whole Team
