Victorinox Swiss Army is one of the most highly regarded and sought-after luxury brands in the world today, popular for its travel goods, apparel, wristwatches and cutlery. The brand was founded in 1884 by Karl Eisener, who opened a cutler’s workshop in Ibach-Schwyz, Switzerland offering premium pocket knives and other cutlery.
In 1891, the Swiss military commissioned Eisener to produce pocket knives for soldiers in their armed forces. As a result, the “Swiss Officer’s Knife” and “Sport Knife” were registered to Eisener’s Association of Swiss Master Cutlers in 1897.
After the death of his mother in 1909, Eisener named the company Victoria in her honor and developed the brand’s cross and shield emblem in red and white.
With the development of stainless steel in the cutlery industry in 1921, Eisener incorporated the international term for stainless steel: inox into the brand name, creating the Victorinox brand.
Victorinox pocket knives and cutlery flourished throughout Europe in the years that followed and the company became a global force after World War II.
In 1989, Victorinox Swiss Army expanded its product line with wristwatches featuring the same high-quality, surgical grade stainless steel used in their popular knives, along with premium Swiss-made ETA movements inside and 12/24 hour military time on the dials.
