Interview

Carl Elsener, the global CEO of Victorinox, flew in from Switzerland to kick off the store's grand opening. I took this rare opportunity to scope the new location and talk SAKs with Mr. Elsener himself.

In this quick interview below, Mr. Elsener shares what's in his pockets, what model of SAK he swears by, and two incredible stories he's heard over the years of a SAK coming to the rescue. It's been lightly edited for clarity and length.
