Knives by Victorinox

Victorinox is a knife manufacturer based in the town of Ibach in the canton of Schwyz Switzerland. Since its acquisition of rival Wenger in 2005, it has, once more, become the sole supplier of multi-purpose knives to the Swiss army
It is the biggest manufacturer of pocket knives in the world.
The company was founded in 1884. Since 1891, the company has delivered knives to the Swiss army Their famous emblem —a cross in a shield—has been used by Victorinox since 1909. That year, the mother of founder Karl Elsener died and he named the company "Victoria" in her honour. In 1921, with the introduction of "inox" (ab. for acier inoxydable, the French term for stainless steel )into their products, the brand and name of the company became the present "Victorinox" ("Victoria"+"Inox").
The Swiss Army Knife is the best-known Victorinox product. Originally the sole supplier, since 1908 it shared the contract with Wenger. A compromise between the two companies gave Victorinox the right to advertise as the Original Swiss Army Knife, while Wenger laid claim to the title of Genuine Swiss Army Knife. Victorinox took over Wenger in 2005.
Swiss Army knives are widely used outside the army. They are multi-functional tools, and many sizes and functional combinations are produced. NASA astronauts have a Victorinox knife as standard equipment. Victorinox knives have also been taken to Mt. Everest and the Arctic.
