An Engraved Swiss Army Knife: The Perfect Personal Gift

Looking for a personal gift for the outdoor enthusiast in your life? We have just the thing. A Victorinox Swiss Army knife engraved with their name makes a perfect present for every occasion - birthday, Christmas, anniversary and more. Victorinox dates back to the year 1884, when Karl Elsener opened a cutler’s workshop in Ibach-Schwyz in Switzerland. Elsener wanted to create more than knives. He had a dream of manufacturing a compact knife that also included a range of practical functions: his dream came true and the Swiss Army knife became a reality. It was born in Switzerland but soon, it was being used all over the world.

The Swiss Army knife by Victorinox is an essential tool for anyone heading into the outdoors. They’re so versatile and well designed that they can perform a wide range of functions, and that includes the most basic models. But if you were to splash out on the SwissChamp, which is the premier model among the “Officer’s Knives” you get an astonishing 33 high-quality tools including:

  • large blade
  • mini-screwdriver
  • small blade
  • corkscrew
  • can opener 
  •  reamer, punch
  • key ring
  • tweezers
  • scissors
  • multi-purpose hook (parcel carrier)
  • wood saw
  • fish scaler hook disgorger
  • ruler (cm + inches)
  • chisel
  • pliers with
  • magnifying lens
  • pressurized ballpoint pen
  • pin stainless
  • sewing eye

It’s quite incredible what you can get into such a compact gadget! But then again, Victorinox Swiss Knives are iconic for a reason, and that reason is versatility. No prizes for guessing why they’re on any adventurer’s wishlist. 

While you probably appreciate this, you might not know that you can personalise a Victorinox Swiss Army knife by having it engraved. This makes a very useful gift a personal one too, and a good way of identifying the gadget should it be mislaid. We can engrave on most knives including Victorinox, Opinel on either the blade or the wooden handle, and Gerber. We can also engrave other metal items, like our Stanley Stainless Steel products, and even ice axes. Other items can be engraved too so if you want confirmation on exactly what, simply contact us. When you have completed your purchase, just send another message with the words you want engraved on the item.

While engraved items are obviously fantastic as personal gifts, we’re also noting increased demand for them in the business sector with companies looking for corporate gifts with a difference. If that’s the sort of thing you’re looking for, feel free to contact us and ask about bulk engraving.
