In 1897 the Original Swiss Army Knife was created in the small village of Ibach, Switzerland. The Swiss Army Pocket Tool Kit is just that - a veritable tool kit that fits in your pocket. It's the perfect traveller's companion especially for those exploring the great outdoors. The VICTORINOX "Swiss Army Knife" is over 100 Years Old. This useful pocket Multi-Tool was legally registered on June 12, 1897. Over 34,000 of these pocket tools with the distinctive Swiss cross leave the factory in central Switzerland each day. Ninety per cent are for export to over 100 different countries and serve as ambassadors for Switzerland.
After an unparalleled success story around the world, the VICTORINOX "Swiss Army Knife" is even orbiting the earth as part of the standard equipment of the Space Shuttle Crew. The knife has also been successfully proven on expeditions: in the arctic ice of the North Pole; on the highest peak on earth, Mount Everest; in the tropical rain forests of the Amazon, and elsewhere. Time and again, it has been a life saver in situations of extreme danger and great need. The New York Museum of Modern Art and the State Museum for Applied Art in Munich have selected it for their collections of excellence in design, and, since Lyndon B. Johnson, US presidents present guests with VICTORINOX pocket knives.
