Many of us have heard about Switzerland because of an instrument that many people have been using for a long time, the Swiss Army Knife.

The Swiss Army Knife (or Couteau Suisse) is a pocket knife that has almost everything. From nippers to a screwdriver, this tool is indispensable for all the workshops around the world.

Originally, it was only a blade used by the Swiss army (that's why it's called the Army Knife), and they used it to open cans and disassemble their rifle, which required the use of a screwdriver.

Nowadays, there are many types of Swiss knives, with corkscrews or little lanterns, and there are some of them even with a USB flash drive! These pocket knives are fabricated by Victorinox, the company with the Swiss flag as their logo.

Maybe some of you have one in your home, or even in your pocket. In all cases, this tool can help you in many situations.
