Help needed: Swiss Military multitool + ballpoint. Is it Victorinox?
« on: June 11, 2019, 06:08:30 PM »
Can't find anything on the internet about it.
Is the 'multi-tool' (blade, scissors, nail file) made by Victorinox or some other company.?
Maybe some Swiss members know?

Isn't it a Wagner?

Thanks!
It looks very much like a Wagner, but this "Swiss Military" multitool has no flashlight. My guess is that it's a Chinese copy.

Not Chinese, a Swiss ‘lifestyle’ brand...basically branding a range of no-name products from many different suppliers that they then market with a Swiss connection...  :whistle:

Intersting!!
Not Chinese, but not completely Swiss either... It's also India! If you check the product profile, the URL has the extension 'india'.
So I don't think the blade, scissors and file are made by Vic.

Clever marketing...I guarantee nothing is Swiss made from this brand and they have zero relationship with Victorinox.
