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 original product 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 for versatility.

Unsure if I missed it somewhere but this is a left handed blade. It can be flicked out either lefty or righty but the locking mechanism is indicative of a left handed user. Read morePublished 18 days ago by Jared E. Pandolfi

Excellent hiking/camping knife. I've always thought the Victorinox can opener was the best around. The serrated main blade is great for cutting meat or rope. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Scott Lindsey
