Birth of a Legend
The seed of the idea of a multi tool device has been around widely since the time of the World wars. Soldier Knife, was the first proper utility multi tool device that came into being. An original model, made especially for troops. Soldiers fighting and traveling over days of war needed a fold-able tool that could easily open canned food, be used in administering first aid as well as in dis-assembling a rifle. Usually equipped with five functions, 'The Soldier Knife' included a blade for cutting, a reamer, a can opener, a screwdriver, and oak handles.
The Multi tool finally found its progress by inventor Karl Elsener, owner of the very popular manufacturing company called Victoronix, created in 1891 and came to be known as the 'Swiss Army Knife'. Elsener went above and beyond with his creation and created a knife with a pivot point mechanism that allowed for the addition of numerous tools, such as a knife blade, can opener, screwdriver, nail file, and many others. Hence the 9 function multi tool came into existence. Today this very Swiss Army Knife has factories in Ibach and Delemont, the Swiss towns where multi tool knives have been made for more than 100 years. Amid the pounding of machines and the bins of knife implements on the factory floor, workers assemble knife after knife to meet the world’s demand of 9 function multi tool devices.
