The company was founded in 1884.  2014-1884 =130

However, the Company was originally named Victoria.  It became Victorinox in 1921 when the company switched to stainless steel (inox) in its knife production.  They first sold knives to the Swiss Army in 1891 and they used the trademark cross/shield emblem on their knives in 1909. 

I think the term "Evolving" is appropriate as soon you will see Victorinox/Delmont tang stamps  on a few knives now that Wenger Genuine Swiss Army Knives are truly no more.

Is it true Victorinox has been evolving for 130 years? If so that's quite a record....

My Take on the German Army Knife

Thanks Steve.   Landed three more today, an old Wenger Backpacker (no etch, will be a user), and pre-1991 Huntsman and pre-1991 Camper.  The huntsman is near mint, no box.   The Camper is in exceptional shape but has well worn scales.  (that's okay I got it for a under $5 and bought it to re-handle it!)  Pictures to follow.

Wow thanks Ron and Tobias ! A picnickers!? Had no idea and an awl? I guess that makes sense. I am enjoying carrying them I will say? Lots of fun and much stronger than you think!

Real nice Tobias, I just acquired a couple of vintage Victorinox folders. I'd love to show ya'll later. One is a Golfers type multi-blade.

Here is one of my latest SAKs.  It is a Victorinox Classic SD with the the Star of David shield and cobalt blue handles.  Not necessarily rare but not that common either.   Scales show a little pocket wear but blades are like new.
