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.

I own and have owned several Victorinox Swiss Army Knives and this one is far and away my favorite.
It is used on a daily basis and has the most common things one would need at hand, all while being tiny, small and light, fitting on your keychain perfectly.
It's got a phillips screwdriver that amazingly works on just about any phillips screw large or small, scissors, bottle opener, tweezers and toothpick.
I've had this little knife for almost two years and I carry it everywhere with me (except on plane unfortunately). Read morePublished 4 days ago by Juliana Peña
Replaced mine after 16 years. Lost it, and was very sad. Take this thing everywhere.Published 7 days ago by Jessica Bowers
I know the product to be excellent, however, I never ordered this item.Published 14 days ago by tish
This is just a touch thicker than the classic, but the minor extra width is worth it to get the Philips head screw driver.Published 14 days ago by HomeShopper
While it functions in general I was admittedly sad it did not in fact cut through pocketsPublished 16 days ago by CatinAhat
Great mini knife that "hides" in the bottom of your pocket. Has a surgical sharp blade. I keep mine unused for emergencies.Published 19 days ago by ROD
