In the mid-19th century, the first multitools were invented in Solingen. One of the most famous is the multi-part Boker Sports Knife, one of the ancestors of the renowned Swiss Army Knife. The knife was and still is a triumph in North America, winning over countless customers over the years. People did begin to ask for a bigger, sturdier knife of the same design, suitable for the rough everyday life on a ranch or in the wilderness. The idea of the cattle knife was born. Today, the classic pocketknives enjoy a renaissance as Modern Traditionals, reflecting timeless values such as sustainability, natural materials and true craftsmanship. Modern pocketknives don't necessarily require additional blades, since the main blade is made from much bettersteel than in the old days and can handle all cutting tasks of urban everyday life.
