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.

The main problem I have with these small knives is that I keep losing them. I keep my knife in the coin pocket of my jeans all the time. It's incredibly useful for small tasks. Read morePublished 11 hours ago by Tom Durkin

I use mine several times a day. I find the same sized one that also has a combined Phillips screw driver and bottle opener, however, to be more useful.Published 4 days ago by Thomas G. Field, Jr.
