In 1884, Swiss Pioneer Karl Elsener opened his cutler’s workshop in Ibach-Schwyz. At the time, Switzerland was one of the poorest countries in Europe. In the early years Karl Elsener worked to combat poverty and unemployment in the Schwyz basin, creating jobs and helping stem the flow of emigration. In 1891, he supplied the soldier’s knife to the Swiss Army for the first time. He went on to develop the Swiss Officer’s and Sports Knife – now the iconic Swiss Army Knife – in 1897, creating the foundation for a brand that has become known the world over as a superb product. It is this level of quality that has allowed Victorinox to become a leader in Switzerland and the rest of the world.
