Victorinox Emergency Blade Classic

Here is a unique little knife. It may look like a common classic but this one has an emergency style blade instead of the regular pen knife blade common to most all Victorinox Classic knives you see. All the other tools are the same as a regular classic. This blade is usually only seen in Mini-Champ versions of the Victorinox Classic sized knives. According to Victorinox it is called an emergency blade. Why? You tell me if you know. LOL

According to information I have gathered the Emergency blade was fashioned after a surgical blade and called the Emergency blade to perform emergency incisions or other fine cutting where a very fine point and sharp edge were needed. Some other branded pocket knives from the 1950's and up had similar blades and were purposed for the same usage.
