Your companion for life
125 years ago, the founder of Victorinox, Karl Elsener, opened a cutlery workshop, where he soon thereafter developed the legendary Original Swiss Army Knife in its original form. This spark of ingenuity illuminates every product from Victorinox during our anniversary year. Each of these bears our anniversary message: "Your companion for life."
Being a companion for life has various dimensions for Victorinox. Our anniversary message can be experienced in concrete terms in our unique Swiss Army Knives, in the high-quality of our household and professional cutlery, in the Victorinox Swiss Army timepieces, in the Victorinox fashion collections, in the travel gear from Victorinox, as well as in the perfumes in our unmistakable line of fragrances. Because of their high quality standards, Victorinox products appeal to our common sense. But they also conquer our hearts, because they always give us more than we expect.
Being a companion for life extends far beyond the world of products at Victorinox. Our anniversary message is also a declaration that Victorinox stands behind its employees as a company and conducts its business with progressive environmental management. The world is changing. But no matter what happens, Victorinox remains true to itself: its identity, its principles, and its claim to make a difference through ingenious innovations.
