The Wenger Swiss Army Knife dates back to 1886 when the Swiss Army decided to equip every soldier with a regulation single-blade folding knife. In 1889 a new rifle was introduced. To take apart the rifle a screwdriver was needed. So the decision was made to create a multi-purpose tool incorporating a knife, screwdriver, reamer and can opener. They've come a long way since then and now manufacture knives for pretty much every sport requiring one. Buy Wenger quality with confidence.
