The Journey

Wenger's journey began over a century ago, driven by a passion for creating superior knives that combined functionality with impeccable design. What started as a local endeavour soon garnered international acclaim, solidifying Wenger as a cornerstone of Swiss craftsmanship.

In 2005, Wenger entered a new chapter when it was acquired by Victorinox, another renowned Swiss brand with a rich history of its own. This union marked a significant moment, bringing together two giants of Swiss knife-making under one roof. The acquisition paved the way for the brand to focus on other product collaborations and innovation while preserving Wenger's distinct identity.


Relaunch and Reinvention

Following the acquisition, Victorinox undertook the relaunch of the Wenger brand in 2014, reintroducing it with a renewed focus on its heritage and commitment to quality. Emblazoned with the slogan "A Swiss Company Since 1893," Wenger reaffirmed its dedication to upholding Swiss principles of design and craftsmanship. Their focus on travel luggage, bags and timepieces also took flight with their new brand directives.

At the heart of Wenger's ethos lies an unwavering dedication to offer Swiss quality to a reasonable pricepoint. Through decades of well-thought out functionality and adherence to stringent quality standards, Wenger continues to produce products that exceed expectations. Each Wenger product reflects a legacy of precision and reliability.

Virtues cemented since they started.
