WORLD'S FIRST
SWISS ARMY KNIFE

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's first Swiss Army knife?

Swiss native Karl Elsener owned a company that made surgical equipment but one thing really bothered him; the knives being supplied to the Swiss army were made in Germany.

In 1891 Karl Elsener founded the Association of Swiss Master Cutlers with a simple business plan: Swiss knives for the Swiss army and thus the Swiss Army knife was born.

The world's first Swiss Army knife had a wooden handle and contained a knife blade, two screwdrivers, a can opener and an awl.
