Real Swiss Army Knives are a Rite of Passage


The Original Swiss Army Knife

A pocket knife is a boy’s first “man’s tool” and we make a big deal of it in our family. When our sons reach an age old enough to handle a knife responsibly, we require them to memorize the knife rules to demonstrate they understand the importance of using this tool correctly and safely.

In 1897, the Victorinox Company, supplier of knives to the Swiss Army, invented the multi-tool pocketknife we know as the Swiss Army knife. You can give your son a manly tool and a piece of history, too–the knife that has meant young manhood for over 100 years!

Shipping: You will need to add shipping below based on how much you purchase. I apologize for the clunkiness, but until exams are over for our IT department (who’s in his senior year of college), we’ll have to live with it. 🙂  If you forget, I’ll just send you a PayPal invoice, but we can’t ship until that’s cleared. Thank you for understanding!
