Popular Mechanics shares an interesting look at the history of the Swiss Army Knives that are made at the Victorinox factory in Switzerland. The iconic Swiss Army knife was originally created by Karl Elsener in 1891 and there are over 400 different models today. I had no idea that they were made from 95% recycled steel. It’s always a good idea to have a Swiss Army Knife when you go camping or hiking. The Swiss Army Knife always comes in handy when spending time in the great outdoors.
