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 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.
