When it comes to adventure, one name stands out from the rest – the Swiss Army Knife.Made in Switzerland.
Blade made from super-tough stainless steel.
Blade locks in place when open for safety and ease of use.
Victorinox’s Swiss Army Knife first came about in 1891, when Karl Elsener invented the “Soldier’s Knife”, which was followed a few years later by the Offiziermesser – the “Officer’s Knife”. They were the Swiss Army’s best kept secret…until much later, during World War II, when American GIs working with the Swiss saw the Swiss’ pocket knives in action…and wanted one for themselves! Understandably, they couldn’t pronounce “Offiziermesser”…so the Americans simply referred to them as “Swiss Army Knives”.
That’s how Swiss Army Knives came to be known, loved, and used every day by adventurers all around the world! Handy, easy to use and packed with features, every Victorinox knife is made from the finest materials – they’re built to last.
That’s not a knife. This is a knife! The Swiss Army Alpineer has a huge blade that locks in place for added safety. Scale the heights with the Alpineer…it will never let you down.
