History and Heritage
In 1884, Master Cutler Karl Elsener opened a cutlery shop in Ibach, Switzerland. There, he and the cutlers’ union he formed produced the finest steel cutlery, finished with the now-famous proprietary edge preferred globally by professional and home cooks. In 1891, Karl supplied the Swiss Army with its standard issue Soldier’s Knife and in 1897 with the Officer’s Knife. In 1921, after the death of his mother, Victoria, and with the advent of stainless steel, then referred to as “inoxydable” and used in the production of his cutlery, Karl changed the name of the company to Victorinox. It is from those humble beginnings that a around the globe icon was once born.
Today, Victorinox is still owned and operated by the Elsener circle of relatives, and both the company and circle of relatives still resides in the small village of Ibach, Switzerland.
Care Tips for Swiss Army Knives
The quite a lot of tools are manufactured from high-quality steel with precisely tuned features that are essential for the particular application. The steel is tempered, annealed and polished to succeed in the necessary hardness and provide optimum resistance to corrosion.
To re-sharpen your knife, use a whetstone at an angle of 15°– 20°. This will result in a cutting angle of 30°– 40°. If sharpening on a grinding wheel, at all times cool with various water to steer clear of over the top temperatures and the resulting damages that may occur.
After you’ve used your Swiss Army Knife for all of its quite a lot of applications, such as cutting open a lot of boxes, you can also notice that the blades begin to stick together. Opening and closing the blades in warm water several times will allow the tools to easily move again. Once they’ve dried, it is suggested, to apply a small drop of oil between the blade or tool shank and the spring. To optimally care for the locking mechanism, periodically apply a drop of our advisable Swiss Army Knife Oil. Never put Swiss Army Knives in the dishwasher.

In 1884, Swiss cutler Karl Elsener set up shop in Ibach-Schwyz, installing a waterwheel in Tobelbach Brook to run his grinding and polishing machines. Thus began what would turn into the international brand name Victorinox, a combination of Victoria, for Elsener’s mother, and “inox,” or stainless steel. Today, Victorinox produces watches, luggage, clothing, and, famously, Swiss Army Knives. The original product dates to 1897, when Elsener patented the Swiss Officer’s and Sports Knife he supplied to the Swiss Army. Following World War II, American servicemen and women shopping in PX stores shortened the name to Swiss Army Knife, which lives on in English-speaking countries around the globe and has turn into a metaphor for versatility.
