History and Heritage
In 1884, Master Cutler Karl Elsener opened a cutlery shop in Ibach, Switzerland. There, he and the cutlers’ union he formed produced the finest steel cutlery, finished with the now-famous proprietary edge preferred globally by professional and home cooks. In 1891, Karl supplied the Swiss Army with its standard issue Soldier’s Knife and in 1897 with the Officer’s Knife. In 1921, after the death of his mother, Victoria, and with the advent of stainless steel, then known as “inoxydable” and used in the production of his cutlery, Karl changed the name of the company to Victorinox. It is from those humble beginnings that a worldwide icon was born.
Today, Victorinox is still owned and operated by the Elsener family, and both the company and family still resides in the small village of Ibach, Switzerland.
Care Tips for Swiss Army Knives
The various tools are manufactured from high-quality steel with precisely tuned features that are essential for the particular application. The steel is tempered, annealed and polished to achieve the necessary hardness and provide optimum resistance to corrosion.
To re-sharpen your knife, use a whetstone at an angle of 15°– 20°. This will result in a cutting angle of 30°– 40°. If sharpening on a grinding wheel, always cool with plenty of water to avoid excessive temperatures and the resulting damages that may occur.
After you’ve used your Swiss Army Knife for all of its various applications, such as cutting open numerous boxes, you may notice that the blades begin to stick together. Opening and closing the blades in warm water several times will allow the tools to easily move again. Once they have dried, it is recommended, to apply a small drop of oil between the blade or tool shank and the spring. To optimally maintain the locking mechanism, periodically apply a drop of our recommended Swiss Army Knife Oil. Never put Swiss Army Knives in the dishwasher.
From the renowned company that created the Swiss Army knife a century ago comes the Swiss Army Classic SD American Flag pocketknife, a compact multi-tool for campers, hikers, and boy scouts. Measuring 2-1/4 inches long, the Classic SD American Flag is stylishly cased in a timeless Swiss Army housing with an American Flag graphic on the side. More importantly, the unit contains all the classic Swiss Army tools, including a small blade for cutting, a pair of mini scissors, a nail file with a screwdriver tip, a toothpick, tweezers, and a key ring.
The multi-tool is cased in a classic housing with a U.S. flag graphic.

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.

- Sharp scissors and knife! I use the scissors to cut fishing line (I typically use up to 20 lb test braid and up to 40 lb test mono leader) and the blade to open packages. As usual, remember to close it when you're done with it.
- Contrary to the picture shown, the nail filer end is actually flat. That's right, it doubles as a flathead! It has saved me many times when I needed a small flathead screwdriver and didn't have one laying around.
- Lightweight! Since there's a keychain loop, I keep this on a neck lanyard and it doesn't bother me one bit.
- The tweezers are tiny and useful for picking up small screws (I use them for reassembling my fishing reels).
- The plastic pick is useful for various things, such as trying to get sand out of the crevices of something that you wouldn't take the knife to instead.
- If properly maintained, these can last years. However, since they're so inexpensive, I've been just buying them every other year so that I can have yet another one laying around just in case (i.e. keep one in the car).
- The spring for the scissor can get knocked out of alignment, but that's an easy fix. Just be careful not to completely destroy it if you do accidentally knock it out. Like all springs, they can be permanently deformed.
You will not regret your decision to have one of these on your keyring. I find that I use it all the time.
KNIFE: Opening packages, cutting, etc. It goes dull, but that is probably a good thing. Its a dangerous little thing when sharp since it does not lock open. I have cut myself a few times due to having fat fingers, or abusing it for tasks that should require a much larger blade.
FLATHEAD SCREWDRIVE/FILE: I've used the "screwdriver" part on screws that I shouldn't have, and it never bent or broke. The file is useful for chipped/broken fingernails.
SCISSORS: Probably the most used of the three. Its small, but I keep finding uses for it. Especially useful for strings on clothing.
Its cheap. Its tough. It gets used more than you would think. Buy it!
I would highly recommend this to any one looking for a small pocket knife...
I carry it with me all the time - which leads me to the only negative comment I have -- I keep losing the knife to TSA at airports. It's such a part of my daily life I forget to leave it home, TSA confiscates it and I have to buy a new one. This is my third!
I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a small, key chain knife. It doesn't have near the bells and whistles as some knives ... but it comes in handy all the time and can go through a lot of punishment.
