There, he and the cutlers’ union he formed produced the finest steel cutlery, finished with the now-famous proprietary edge preferred globally by professional and home cooks. In 1891, Karl supplied the Swiss Army with its standard issue Soldier’s Knife and in 1897 with the Officer’s Knife. In 1921, after the death of his mother, Victoria, and with the advent of stainless steel, then known as “inoxydable" and used in the production of his cutlery, Karl changed the name of the company to Victorinox. It is from those humble beginnings that a worldwide icon was born.Today, Victorinox is still owned and operated by the Elsener family, and both the company and family still resides in the small village of Ibach, Switzerland. Care Tips for Swiss Army KnivesThe various tools are manufactured from high-quality steel with precisely tuned features that are essential for the particular application. The steel is tempered, annealed and polished to achieve the necessary hardness and provide optimum resistance to corrosion.SharpeningTo re-sharpen your knife, use a whetstone at an angle of 15°– 20°. This will result in a cutting angle of 30°– 40°. If sharpening on a grinding wheel, always cool with plenty of water to avoid excessive temperatures and the resulting damages that may occur.CleaningAfter you’ve used your Swiss Army Knife for all of its various applications, such as cutting open numerous boxes, you may notice that the blades begin to stick together. Opening and closing the blades in warm water several times will allow the tools to easily move again. Once they have dried, it is recommended, to apply a small drop of oil between the blade or tool shank and the spring. To optimally maintain the locking mechanism, periodically apply a drop of our recommended Swiss Army Knife Oil. Never put Swiss Army Knives in the dishwasher.
I own a variety of multitools and Swiss Army Knives (sorry, I'm a gadget freak), and this is a perennial favorite. The Outrider is equipped with a fine set of tools, including the always-useful scissors and a toothy saw for hacking off troublesome small tree branches and such. Since the cutting blade is non-serrated, it's easy to sharpen. Swiss Army Knives don't use the most expensive stainless steel, but the people at Victorinox have chosen this alloy carefully an..
After carrying a Vic Champion Plus or SwissChamp for a while I was interested in getting back into the Vic 111 mm stable of knives. I'm a big man, 6'3" tall, 275#'s, I like a big knife with as many functions as possible, that is without a knife that's too big and heavy and that pulls my pants down when worn in a pouch on my belt. My major requirement in a SAK are three things, scissors, in line Phillips driver, and a corkscrew to place my mini driver for my glasses. In the VIc..
Love the knife! Perfect tool when out on the lake or trail. Would also be great for use as a supplement to a fixed blade when minimalist backpacking/extended-stay hunting. The new design is comfortable in the hand whether making fuzz-sticks or cleaning fish. Despite what some have said, the lock is solid. My only complaint is that I would prefer the main blade to have been positioned in the center of the tool. For example, rather than Knife, tool, tool, tool, I would have ..
