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 known 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 worldwide icon was born.

Today, Victorinox is still owned and operated by the Elsener family, and both the company and family still resides in the small village of Ibach, Switzerland.

Care Tips for Swiss Army Knives
The various 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 achieve 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, always cool with plenty of water to avoid excessive temperatures and the resulting damages that may occur.

After you’ve used your Swiss Army Knife for all of its various applications, such as cutting open numerous boxes, you may 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 have dried, it is recommended, to apply a small drop of oil between the blade or tool shank and the spring. To optimally maintain the locking mechanism, periodically apply a drop of our recommended Swiss Army Knife Oil. Never put Swiss Army Knives in the dishwasher.

None better! Best all around useful pocket knife on the planet.. Great materials, sharp blade and tools. NOT too large for everyday pocket carrying. The edge on the can opener and the leather punch is tough enough to de-burr holes in metal much les open a can or stitch with. I’ve reset car door hinge screws with the Phillips screw driver without damaging my knife. Better than a box cutter for cutting boxes. And, the tooth pick and tweezers are…

Lightweight, Compact, Versatile Tool The tinker is my personal favorite Victorinox model and one that I often give as gifts for which this one is intended. It has two blades that are easy to sharpen, a Phillips and two regular screwdriver blades, tweezers and a toothpick which are all frequently useful. The can opener, bottle cap lifter and awl have become less useful as technology is quickly moving to containers that do not require separate opener tools. I can’t recall the last time I saw a drink bottle that required a tool to…

Satisfied with my first 91mm SAK; Opinions on size and tool selection compared to Fieldmaster/Tinker for EDC within I have owned other multitools or Swiss Army-styled folding knives. I have also owned a Classic SD (58mm long versus 91mm for Super Tinker) for many, many years and recently decided to get a larger Swiss Army knife (SAK) to play with and to see if I can carry it around every day in my pocket (preferably in the watch pocket, too). Here is my comprehensive write-up for how I decided on the Super Tinker among the Fieldmaster and Tinker and related tools, purposes, and thoughts, for those willing to…
