Didn't know they have factory outlets. Didn't cross my mind to buy one but I stumble upon a small shop in Luzern. The lady says she and her husband has been in business for over 40 years. Is the history of Victorinox that long? Anyway...More

If you need pocket knives, kitchen knives, hunting knives, or any other kind of knife, this is the place to go. The shop is small, but has so many choices, and the prices are better than anywhere else. The staff are friendly, patient and very...More

This is the home of the original Swiss Army Knife. The outlet store offers a great selection of knifes (not only pocket knifes) and watches. There are however no tours of the factory available to the general public. And that's why this only gets four...More

They showed us a lot of knives and told us about the tools. I never knew this much about swiss army knives. We left with a new knife and a big smile.

This is the home of the Swiss Army Knife that is known world wide. The shop at the factory has the full range of folding, and also kitchen knives. Have a look around, and they will personalise your purchases for you while you wait.

A great place to view and buy the most comprehensive range of Swiss Army Knives, without too much of the over-priced peripheral apparel that crowds the brand's much-hyped retail stores. They also sell a full range of spare and replacement parts. Look out for very...More

Factory visits are granted very seldom, you have to contact the marketing department of Victorinox. However in Brunnen (which is close to the harbor on Lake Lucerne) there is an exhibition called "Swiss Knife Valley". You... More
