An international name today, Victorinox's beginnings were very parochial, the factory is still based in the small hamlet of Schwyz and employs local people. Although there has inevitably been some mechanisation over the years the knives are still assembled by hand.
This colorful, highly illustrated book examines all aspects of the Swiss Army Knife from the first Officers Knife produced for the Swiss Army to the latest Milennium Cyberitool. There are chapters on the manufacturing process, the variety of blades and tools and a gallery of old and new knives which appear in a wide variety of styles, with plenty to interest the collector.
The legend of the Swiss Army Knife makes fascinating and informative reading

Are you kidding? I can buy this for $21.95 on a knife dealer's website. One star is for greed by "bluehouse".
