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.

Nice and small. The blades were very sharp. Perfect for small tasks. I used it at training and it was great for opening MRE packets, clipping loose strings, etc...Published 2 days ago by Emma Craig
As always, the little Swiss Army knife is perfect. Just got back from the county courthouse. Security at the door took it away while I was in the building. Read morePublished 2 days ago by W. R. Tollifson
