Swiss Army Knives A.K.A. SAK

Victorinox Swiss Army Huntsman Knife boasts 15 useful tools including a large and a small blade, standard and Phillips head screwdrivers, scissors, can opener, tweezers, wood saw and more. In the wake of the aircraft ban on carrying Swiss Army knives and pocket tools, Victorinox leased workers to other companies, while continuing to pay their wages. The Victorinox Player Red Swiss Army Knife is part of the Original Swiss Army Knives Lockblades Collection. The Victorinox Huntsman Black Swiss Army Knife is part of the Original Swiss Army Knives Lockblades Collection.

The Victorinox Waiter Red Swiss Army Knife is part of the Original Swiss Army Knives Lockblades Collection. There are now lots of everyday carry knives, many of which have larger, stronger blades or more robust tool sets (including a full-size set of pliers) than the original Victorinox. I have a number of multi-tools now including many Leathermans, a Victorinox SwissTool, a Gerber, and a SOG PowerLock model, but the long tradition and classiness of a Swiss Army knife has always appealed to me. I started looking into what the world of SAKs was like and I had the same question that almost all fans have - how come there isn't a perfect SAK.

35 pages on the history of cutlery; 157 pages on Victorinox knives, brief history of the company, almost no mention of Wenger; no history of models or development of tools; nice photographs. The knife had a blade , reamer , can-opener , screwdriver, and grips made out of dark oak wood that some say was later partly replaced with ebony wood At that time no Swiss company had the necessary production capacity, so the initial order for 15,000 knives was placed with the German knife manufacturer Wester & Co. from Solingen, Germany These knives were delivered in October 1891. The Swiss Army knife generally has a main spearpoint blade, as well as various tools, such as screwdrivers , a can opener , and many others.

Swiss army knives are pocketknives or multi-tools that are created by Victorinox or Wenger. Today, the company continues to supplies knives to the Swiss Army, as does Wenger, a former competitor purchased by Victorinox in 2005. Created by Carl Elsener in Ibach, Switzerland more than a hundred years ago for use by (you guessed it) the Swiss Army, the original tool offered users a single blade, reamer, can opener and screwdriver—the items needed most by soldiers in the field.

Not if Victorinox has anything to do with it. The company now produces a Swiss Army Knife for the 21st century - namely, one that packs a USB stick along with its other, more traditional tools. I often think that the smartphone is the Swiss Army knife of the digital age - my iPhone springs forth apps much in the way that that iconic red multi-tool springs forth scissors, nail files, and blades. Since its first issue in 1891 , the Swiss Army Knife has been manufactured in an assortment of models that contain an eclectic selection of tools and devices.
