HISTORY AND HERITAGE
Victorinox and its 128-year history of unparalleled craftsmanship have left an indelible mark on the memories of generations of proud owners — timeless impressions that are the direct result of Victorinox’s steadfast commitment to quality, trust and authenticity.The story begins in 1891 with a revolutionary multi-tool. This multifunction device, worthy of soldiers and adventurers alike, set the standards in credibility, brilliant design and durability. Whether serving as a first-choice gift of U.S. Presidents at the White House or saving lives at the Peak of Mt. Everest, the Original Swiss Army Knife defines the characteristics carried through all Victorinox products today.
