Wegner, Victorinox & Swiss Army Knife
With the success of Swiss Army Knife, the company Victorinox received orders for both Military & Civilians, with their current factory and establishment, they were not able to satisfy the high demand. Thus, in 1906, another company was created called Wegner.
Wegner also made Swiss Army Knives for soldiers, officers & for civilians with the same red handles and same white cross but they placed it at the center of a square with round edges. Both companies have worked together even since with each one developing an infinite range of models so that Swiss Army Knives being manufactured respond to different user needs.
Wegner was officially taken over by Victorinox in 2005. Wegner no longer produce knives they are known for its Wallets now.
But orders, both civil and military, had been so huge since the establishment of the company that Karl Elsener had never been able to fully satisfy the demand. That is why another company was created in Switzerland in 1906, under the name Wenger, which also made Swiss Army Knives for soldiers, officers and civilians with the same red sides and the same white cross, but placed at the center of a square with rounded edges. The two companies have worked together ever since, with each one developing an infinite range of models so that the tools in these little knives will respond to all needs.
