From the renowned company that created the Swiss Army knife a century ago comes the Victorinox Handyman, a compact do-it-all multi-tool that renders the toolbox almost unnecessary. Measuring 3.6 inches long, the Handyman is stylishly cased in a classic red housing with the familiar Victorinox logo on the side. More importantly, the unit contains several handy mini-tools for use around the house, including small and large blades, a can opener with a small screwdriver, a cap lifter with a screwdriver and wire stripper, mini-scissors, and a corkscrew. The Handyman adds to your toolkit with several other useful gadgets, including a wood saw, a chisel, pliers, a wire crimping tool, wire cutters, a fine screwdriver, and a nail file with a metal file, nail cleaner, and metal saw. Other mini-tools include a reamer with a punch, a toothpick, tweezers, a multipurpose hook that serves as a parcel carrier, and a key ring for easy transport.
As with all Victorinox items, the Handyman is made to exacting standards, with dozens of steps going into its construction. Victorinox attends to every detail, from selecting the finest materials to performing the final inspection. In addition, each individual tool has been hardened in a different way to stand up to its designated use. The Handyman measures 3.6 by 1.1 by 1.1 inches (W x H x D), weighs 5.54 ounces, and carries a lifetime warranty.

In 1884, Swiss cutler Karl Elsener set up shop in Ibach-Schwyz, installing a waterwheel in Tobelbach Brook to run his grinding and polishing machines. Thus began what would become the international brand name Victorinox, a combination of Victoria, for Elsener's mother, and "inox," or stainless steel. Today, Victorinox produces watches, luggage, clothing, and, famously, Swiss Army Knives. The original product dates to 1897, when Elsener patented the Swiss Officer's and Sports Knife he supplied to the Swiss Army. Following World War II, American servicemen and women shopping in PX stores shortened the name to Swiss Army Knife, which lives on in English-speaking countries around the world and has become a metaphor for versatility.
