Established in 1884 by Karl Elsener, the original vision of Victorinox was to create a sturdy, multi-function tool that could be used anywhere. The resulting product was the famous Original Swiss Army Knife. Though customer needs and technology have changed over the intervening decades, the company's core values have not. Our comprehensive selection covers chef's knives, steels and sharpeners, as well as complete knife sets and premium scissors. With crafting expertise built upon over a century of accumulated knowledge, Victorinox products are designed to be a kitchen companion for life. They come highly recommended in the Chefs' Choice Awards 2015 for Best Knife Supplier.
