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 also plan to re-open a new and greatly improved shopping cart, for sales of new and used knives.

NOTE: We are rebuilding the entire SmartKnives website. Please expect chaos until we are finished! Click here for the old Smartknives website, but there is little reason to go there now.

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
Founded in 1893, Wenger SA supplied knives to the Swiss Army for over a century. Victorinox purchased Wenger in 2005, and discontinued the brand in 2013. The Wenger factory in Switzerland still produces the Delémont series, which combines Victorinox and Wenger tools.

Leatherman Tools

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