Victorinox – The company behind the pocket knife
The Swiss Karl Elsener started his workshop in 1884, where he contributed jobs in a community with a lot of poverty. In 1891 he developed a soldier’s knife for the Swiss military.
He also developed his “Swiss Officer’s and Sports Knife” which is now better known as the “Swiss Army Knife” or pocket knife.
Today Victorinox makes a wide range of products. Next to the famous pocket knife, they sell Victorinox knives for the kitchen, watches, bags and suitcases, and perfumes.
