It doesn't get much more iconic than the Swiss Army Knife by Victorinox. Founded in the late 1800s, Victorinox has been making Swiss Army Knives in their own factory for over 100 years. These small, keychain-friendly multi-tools are just the right size for a variety of daily tasks. The immediately recognizable rounded rectangle shape has three fold-out tools sandwiched between two textured “Alox” aluminum scales. At a scant 58mm long and only 5mm thick, the Classic Alox’s three fold-out tools are small, yet functional. A stainless steel plain edge blade is joined by a nail file/screwdriver and a set of surprisingly capable scissors. The Alox scales make the tool even slimmer than its plastic-scaled counterpart, keeping your EDC extra portable. For right around $30, it’s tough to find a small tool that’s as useful as the trusty little Classic Alox.

Victorinox is the brand behind the iconic “Swiss Army Knife”. They’re a household name, and for good reason. Founded in the late 1800’s, the brand got their start supplying knives to the Swiss Army (...so that’s where they got the name from). Nearly 100 years later in the late 1980’s, Victorinox developed their lineup of watches. With a focus on quality and durability, it was their goal to channel the spirit of their classic multi tools and use their experience in working with metal and mechanics to create a line of watches.
