In 1884, a man named Karl Elsener started his very own cutlers workship in the small Swiss town of Ibach-Schwyz. Switzerland was one of the poorest countries in Europe, so Elsener used his business to create jobs and reduce emigration, by offering local people work and a steady wage. Since then Victorinox has forged an international reputation for high standards and uncompromising production values which combine to form the highly recognisable range of Swiss Army Knives. At Allcocks, we stock some of the world’s best outdoor equipment brands. We know that when it comes to outdoor adventure, there’s no room for compromise.
