The journey begins with a small cutlers workshop in Ibach-Schwyz.

It took a great deal of courage and pioneering spirit for Karl Elsener to set up his cutlery workshop in Canton Schwyz in 1884. He hoped to create jobs and thus stop the local population from leaving the area.

Karl Elsener creates the Original Officers and Sports Knife.

As a supplier of soldiers knives for the Swiss Army, Karl Elsener wanted to create a lighter, more elegant model for officers. In 1897, he registered the knife as a trademark with the name Officers and Sports Knife and invented an attitude at the same time.
