From the renowned company that created the Swiss Army Knife more than a century ago comes the One-Hand Fireman, a complete set of tools for outdoorsmen, fishermen, hikers, and just about everyone else. Measuring 4-3/8 inches long, the One-Hand Fireman is stylishly cased in a sleek black housing with the Victorinox logo on the side. More importantly, the unit contains a variety of stainless-steel and plastic tools appropriate for just about any occasion. The standard tools include a one-handed serrated locking blade, a bottle opener with a large locking screwdriver and wire stripper, a can opener with a small screwdriver, and a corkscrew. That's just the beginning, however, as the One-Hand Fireman also includes a toothpick, tweezers, a reamer, a wood saw, and a key ring. Plus, the multi-tool comes with a unique seat belt cutter for emergencies. In short, there's no better accessory for hunting, camping, and fishing trips, along with general around-the-house tasks.
As with all Victorinox items, the One-Hand Fireman is made to exacting standards, with dozens of individual parts and hundreds 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. Outfitted with a plastic housing, the One-Hand Fireman carries a lifetime warranty.
About Swiss Army Knives
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.
