Victorinox® - The Company
Victorinox® - THE COMPANY
In 1884, Karl Elsener opened his cutler’s workshop in Ibach-Schwyz.
In 1891 he supplied the soldier’s knife to the Swiss Army for the first time. He went on to develop the Swiss Officer’s and Sports Knife – now the iconic Swiss Army Knife – in 1897, creating the foundation for a flourishing company that would be able to hold its own on the world stage.
Victorinox guarantees that its products meet the highest standards in all areas and quality is never compromised, regardless of the production site. Victorinox products – the Swiss Army Knives, Household and Professional Knives– are manufactured in Switzerland. It is this level of quality that has allowed Victorinox to become a leader in Switzerland and the rest of the world.
All steel blades are made of martensitic stainless steel. The basis for optimum function and durability of a blade, is the use of the correct steel alloy. The steel should deliver the perfect combination of cutting edge retention and corrosion protection. It should also be flexible, so it does not break during use.
Since decades, issues concerning environmental protection and sustainability have been given high priority at Victorinox.
