Victorinox Swiss Army ‰ۡóÁÌ_́ÌÎÌ_?ÌÎÌ_? History
Master Cutler Karl Elsener opened a cutlery shop in Ibach, Switzerland in 1884. Seven years later, in 1891, Karl supplied the Swiss Army with its standard issue Soldier‰ۡóÁÌ_́ÌÎ_̴Ìös Knife. After the death of his mother in 1909, Karl Elsener introduced the brand name Victoria and the iconic Cross and Shield emblem is registered as a trademark. With the advent of stainless steel, Karl Elsener coined the company‰ۡóÁÌ_́ÌÎ_̴Ìös name, Victorinox, by combining his mother‰ۡóÁÌ_́ÌÎ_̴Ìös name with ‰ۡóÁÌ_́ÌÎÌ_??inox‰ۡóÁÌ_́ÌÎ_?, an abbreviation of the French word for rust-resistant steel, ‰ۡóÁÌ_́ÌÎÌ_??inoxydable‰ۡóÁÌ_́ÌÎ_?. After World War II, the ‰ۡóÁÌ_́ÌÎÌ_??Original Swiss Army Knife‰ۡóÁÌ_́ÌÎ_? began its successful progression around the world and enjoyed exceptional popularity. In 1989, Victorinox entered the timepiece business in the United States under the brand name ‰ۡóÁÌ_́ÌÎÌ_??Swiss Army‰ۡóÁÌ_́ÌÎ_?. Ten years later, Victorinox joined the Travel Gear market, partnering with TRG Group in St. Louis.
