The original was created in 1897 in the village of Ibach, Switzerland. Victorinox's flagship brand has since become popular in more than 100 countries for the precision, quality, and versatility it represents. After all, not just any old product can carry the world-renowned "cross and shield" emblem! Victorinox works hard to keep up with the steady demand for its most popular knife. Its Switzerland factory pumps out over 34,000 Victorinox Swiss Army knives every day! Company founder Carl Elsener wanted to improve upon the soldier's knife given to recruits upon entering the army, so he developed a more elegant and lightweight model, complete with six practical tools. It's come a long way from there. In fact, Victorinox Swiss Army knives orbit the earth as part of the standard equipment for a standard Space Shuttle Crew! This knife has seen the ice of the North Pole, the peak of Mt. Everest, the rain forests of the Amazon, and everywhere in between. There are over 100 different models, the largest of which is called the "SwissChamp." With 33 features, over 450 steps are required to manufacture just one!
