In 2003, the Swiss Army Classic SD pocket knife was dubbed "The Most Popular Knife in America" by Knives Illustrated Magazine. Over time, the little red toolbox with the essential Swiss Army features has added fashion sense to its functionality. It is now an attractive accessory for any keychain. New this year, the American flag graces the handle of this multi-tool. The Classic SD is equipped with 7 functions: knife blade, nail file, screwdriver, scissors, key ring, tweezers and toothpick.
From the renowned company that created the Swiss Army knife a century ago comes the Swiss Army Classic SD American Flag pocketknife, a compact multi-tool for campers, hikers, and boy scouts. Measuring 2-1/4 inches long, the Classic SD American Flag is stylishly cased in a timeless Swiss Army housing with an American Flag graphic on the side. More importantly, the unit contains all the classic Swiss Army tools, including a small blade for cutting, a pair of mini scissors, a nail file with a screwdriver tip, a toothpick, tweezers, and a key ring.

In addition, each individual tool has been hardened in a different way to stand up to its designated use.

In 1884, Swiss cutler Karl Elsener set up shop in Ibach-Schwyz, installing a waterwheel in Tobelbach Brook to run his grinding and polishing machines. Thus began what would become the international brand name Victorinox, a combination of Victoria, for Elsener's mother, and "inox," or stainless steel. Today, Victorinox produces watches, luggage, clothing, and, famously, Swiss Army Knives. The original product dates to 1897, when Elsener patented the Swiss Officer's and Sports Knife he supplied to the Swiss Army. Following World War II, American servicemen and women shopping in PX stores shortened the name to Swiss Army Knife, which lives on in English-speaking countries around the world and has become a metaphor for versatility.
