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.
This model contains the twelve most popular tools in the Swiss Army Knife range. Who knows, perhaps if they’d had a Spartan Swiss Army Knife, the Spartans would have held the pass of Thermopylae after all!
