Victorinox is a knife manufacturer based in the town of Ibach, Switzerland, originating from inside Karl Elsener’s cutler’s workshop in 1884. The name comes from a combination of Elsener’s mother’s name Victoria and the international term for stainless steel “Inox”. Today, Victorinox is registered as a trademark in over 120 countries. In 1891 Elsener supplied knives to the Swiss Army for the first time, and the emblem which is shown on the knives has been used since 1909.
