When it comes to adventure, one name stands out from the rest – the Swiss Army Knife.
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 Offizermesser – 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 “Offizermesser”…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.
Victorinox’s new Soldier’s Knife has had a lot of changes since World War II, but you can still expect great quality and clever design. This new knife (the Official Soldier’s Knife of the Swiss Army) has loads of tools, plus a great outer grip and a large locking blade that can be opened with one hand. Genius!
