About Swiss Army Knives
In 1884, Swiss cutler Karl Elsener set up shop in Ibach-Schwyz, installing a waterwheel in Tobelbach Brook to run his grinding and polishing machines. Thus began what would become the international brand name Victorinox, a combination of Victoria, for Elsener's mother, and "inox," or stainless steel. Today, Victorinox produces watches, luggage, clothing, and, famously, Swiss Army Knives. The forerunner of that name dates to 1897, when Elsener patented the Swiss Officer's and Sports Knife he supplied to the Swiss Army. Following World War II, American servicemen and women shopping in PX stores shortened the name to Swiss Army Knife, which lives on in English-speaking countries around the world and has become a metaphor or versatility.

All Victorinox swiss army knives are made in Schwyz, Switzerland..
I use the one handed feature all the time: my left hand will be occupied holding something, but my right can easily grab the knife and open the blade.
Its a very good pocket knife, it has everything I need, no a lot of tools that you'll never use.
First class piece of steel, sharp and shiny. Serious big blade can be opened one-handed and locks open. Read morePublished 17 days ago by J. Guerrero
Overall really like this knife but I think I'd prefer a non-cerrated blade.Published 18 days ago by Mr. Axolotl
