About Victorinox

Schwyz-Ibach

Victorinox 1884 - 2014
130 Years of Experience and Swiss Tradition

 

The little red pocket knife, with cross and shield emblem on the handle is an instantly recognizable symbol for our company. In a most unique way, it conveys excellence in Swiss craftsmanship, and also the impressive expertise of more than 2,000 employees worldwide.

The principles by which we do business, are as relevant today as they were in 1897 when our company founder, Karl Elsener, developed the “Original Swiss Army Knife”: functionality, innovation, iconic design and uncompromising quality. Our commitment to these principles over the past 130 years has allowed us to develop products that are not only extraordinary in design and quality, but also in their ability to serve as reliable companions on life’s adventures, both great and small.

Today, we’re proud to present a range of product solutions, from built-to-last, Swiss-made watches, to travel gear that will get you around the world and back, to a lifetime-warrantied Swiss Army Knife, or the professional line of cutlery that started it all in 1884, and much more. Page after page, you’ll find that every product assortment perfectly embodies our core principles, and features our best, and perhaps future classics.
