SmartKnives is the source for everything about Victorinox and Wenger Swiss Army Knives, and Leatherman tools (new, retired and vintage). Many people use this site as a reference, but we will also be re-opening our shopping cart soon, for sales of new and used knives.

NOTE: We are rebuilding the entire SmartKnives website. Please expect chaos until we are finished! As of 3/14/2015, we just completed the Victorinox contest, team, military and flag knives. Still a few gaps, but nearly all Victorinox and Leatherman models are now live. No Wenger pages yet. Click here for the old Smartknives website.

Victorinox Swiss Army

Victorinox Swiss Army
Karl Elsener founded Victorinox in 1884. His family still owns and runs the company at its original home in Schwyz, Switzerland. Victorinox produces about 7 million sturdy and practical Swiss Army knives, every year. These handy pocket knives are a cultural icon!

Wenger Swiss Army

Wenger Swiss Army
Wenger SA was founded in 1893, and was joint supplier of knives for the Swiss Army. Victorinox purchased Wenger SA in 2005, and discontinued the brand in 2013. The Wenger factory in Delémont, Switzerland still produces quality knives with a Victorinox insignia.

Leatherman Tools

Leatherman Tools
Tim Leatherman has been building top quality multi-tools since 1983. Although he started almost a century later than the Swiss, his company in Portland, Oregon is already known world-wide for its tough, innovative and durable pocket tools and folding knives.
