In June of 1897, the Swiss Officer's and Sports Knife is first patented.
In 1909, the company first starts to use the cross and shield, the emblem it uses, on all pocket knives and watches from this date on. In that same year after the death of his mother, the company founder changes the company name to her first name "Victoria".
After some trial and error in 1913, Harry Brearley produced a steel with a 12.8% chromium content along with 0.24% carbon. This "Stainless steel" invented is also known as "inox", hence the new brand name "Victorinox" is created using the two words combined.
In 1945 after the Second World War, the military supply shops of the US Army, Marines and Air Force sell the "Swiss Officer's Knife" in large quantities to their officers and soldiers. The Americans coined the phrase of the knives as the "Swiss Army Knife".
In 1989 Swiss Army watches is introduced in America.
