When did the Swiss Army Knife become an American Classic? Who knows? But these days, no Scout would be without one! And with it's cherry wood handle, "Among the Clouds" etched design, and loads of handy blades, this one should be on your short list of "things to get for that special someone who likes knives and also likes Mount Washington". I know a lot of people that would love to carry this handy knife. Pete, our MWO Information Technology Manager, for one. He visited my office as I was working on adding this item to our online shop, picked up this very knife from my desk and said "Wow! This is a great knife! I can't believe it's only $8.95! I'm buying one of these!" I think that just about says it all.
Among the Clouds was a daily newspaper published (and printed) atop Mount Washington from 1885 to 1917. Although the newspaper is gone, its masthead lives on as as an icon and touchstone for those who have visited the stormy mountain top.
Mount Washington Observatory owns the rights to the Among the Clouds image and name.
