Wenger Handyman Swiss Army Knife
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Gear & Gadgets/Outdoor Gear

Stationed in Europe after the Second World War, U.S. soldiers on the lookout for continental souvenirs discovered well-crafted, pocket-sized knives produced for the Swiss army. Unable to pronounce the Swiss-German name—Schweizer Offiziersmesser—American serviceman called them Swiss Army Knives. Although the apple-red casing from the Victorinox company is the most well-known in the United States, the Swiss government actually enlisted two companies in 1908 to supply the Swiss army with knives: Victorinox and the Wegner Company. In 2005 Victorinox acquired Wegner, and today the Swiss Army Knife is produced by a single firm.
