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.

This one has scissors, very important beer bottle opener, screw driver, nail file, knife.
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.
I own and have owned several Victorinox Swiss Army Knives and this one is far and away my favorite.
Very handy as a knife, scissors, a screw driver (both Phillips or Regular) and has a file. Can get you through some minor issues.Published 3 days ago by Paul R Labonte
This is a great little knife. The only problem I had was that after less than a year of keeping the knife in my pocket daily, the Victorinox logo fell off. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Leo
I did not *love* this knife...maybe because I lost the toothpick but still...Published 11 days ago by Roger Deloy Pack
Bought this during last year's cyber week lightning deal. Was going to give it to my dad to replace his old worn out one. Read morePublished 13 days ago by Kathy N.
Unfortunately I keep losing these small knives, either due to a metal detector at the airport or elsewhere, or simply lose one due to size. Actually I' really only lost 3 - 5. Read morePublished 13 days ago by Mr. and Mrs. Allan V. Kotmel
