The Company


What do you know about the most professional knife company in the world?

                                                                                           Developed in short by Trond

It all began in 1884 and today this company is a global brand and Victorinox is known almost everywhere. After 14 years I have learned very much about this product from Switzerland. The values with innovation, iconic design, quality and functionality are important to know because these are the driving force behind everything. The beginning 1884 and The Founder is very much heavy in the Victorinox company and in the development until today and it will continue so in the future. The most professional knife Company very much implements top level engineering, entrepreneur skills and Swiss traditions.

It is a very competitive Company that incorporated in the professionalism the Christian values and hard business logic. It takes the workers serious and they listen to ideas from all over the world. Victorinox know that the product is loved all over the world and implements this in the philosophy.

The Victorinox Spring is a secret to many aspects of functionality, quality, innovation and iconic design.

Milestones, evolution and the development of the products and Company history is heavy with Victorinox, it represents some of the most important knowledge for people that are interested in the Brand and products. For collectors it is extra important and can be developed on.

The production of the knives represents something that can be considered a Swiss Masterpiece and today without any similar competition anywhere. Production variations can be developed to get a better knowledge about the products when you study them.

Protection of the product and Brand is also a heavy factor with Victorinox

The constant quality development is a heavy factor with this Company. There is a driving force to be able to adapt, overcome and continue to be competitive. The product must be better and it must fit the time window we live in today.

It is a family run business and the Brand is gradually step by step growing and all the way showing a professional designation. The environment is very important for them as well.

One example on professionalism is the ability to adapt the product into any philosophy of use.

The Victorinox Swiss Army Knife is like clockwork in precision. Here are my developed Victorinox values that can be placed into several situations: professionalism, precision, duty and engineering  


 Another example on professionalism is the stainless steel. Today I know that the type of steel, the hardening and how it’s been processes very much influence the performance of it. Even today the processing of a stainless steel is very demanding from the very beginning of it until it is sharp and ready on a knife. The steel must have the properties that can perform for the designation on a function. The hardening of stainless steel is actually very demanding even for a top modern production. It was hard work and pioneering feats by Victorinox for the stainless steel in history. The driving force is obvious behind this milestone in history and it got a professional destination!


Iconic design can have many levels of impressions

If you look on modern large SAKs like the 111mm Services Range you can see professional tools with extra solid design. The iconic design, functionality, quality and innovation are very much implemented into them.  Some parts more or less and it is not so that these are made by random either. It stated with a demand and requests for a larger tool with lock. If you look on many aspects of the design, the sandwich construction you can see the continuation of everything. The philosophy of use for the 111mm knives are still made for correct use and the locking mechanism is there as an extra safety to prevent accidental closing.

One design can transform, adapt or jump into new designations…they can borrow from each other. The large SAKs like the 111mm continue to have functionality, comfort and comfortable construction even if it is larger with stronger springs. The 111mm New Soldier knife borrow much from the Officer constuction in my opinion. Everything in the Company setting is present in this knife.



The Founder Carl Elsener

He is very heavy in every aspect of the product even today. If you study what he presented of SAKs and functions in the early 1900s then it is obvious to see. The quest for the Swiss Soldier knife and the later Officer knife is truly the foundation of everything.


15:10 Corrosion resistance and materials.

The hardening of stainless steel does not only influence the performance of the steel. The corrosion resistance is also depending on the correct hardening process.

The Swiss Army Knife today typically uses high-grade steel and aluminum dividers. Brass rivets and plastic scales are often used. With maintenance there are 0 negative factors with this design.

The combination edge show reduction philosophy and to make one blade do more than one job. It is a tool made for many cutting tasks. Not made for violence, it follow the Swiss tradition! Symbolic picture in design, not accurate dimensions


My person experience with Swiss Army Knives is that there are mythology involved and codes....

"The emblem and tang stamps are very heavy and important"



"Victorinox use Swiss symbols and became an icon from after WW2. Today there are no Swiss symbols over the Brand itself"



To understand the SAK then every function must be looked at. I have developed a system called reduction process philosophy that I have used in all aspects researching Swiss Army Knives.

Reduction process




Please look at my developed epitome philosophy page that very much are related to reduction process.





In my opinion survival is perfect for the "reduction process philosophy"

Wenger implemented the same standards as Victorinox. The Wenger legacy lives on under the Victorinox name. There are some changes on the products but the main design are there. I develpoed basic important factors for survival as well.






11.02.2017 what i mean



“Today there are no Swiss symbols over the Brand itself”


For sure the complete SAK is better known than the Victorinox name itself worldwide. What I mean is different. Victorinox runs the show and in reality the SAK itself are more known but it is Victorinox that makes it and make it grow. It was the Swiss Army Knife that became an icon but as everyone know it was the Victorinox and Wenger companies that made it happen..
