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.
This is the classic Swiss Army Knife for roaming around, useful in the car, the backpack, the toiletry kit. It can also fit in a pant's pocket, though it is a bit heavy for that. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Plato
Amazing and Handy.
Loved it, very rugged, fell a few times to the ground but still rock steady.
Just the perfect number of items to provide assistance for all needs, I always carry it in my purse,, and unfortunately lose them when I travel and forget to pack it. Read morePublished 7 days ago by responsible-consumer
