The term Swiss Army Knives has come to become synonymous with any compact, mulit-tool knife apparatus, regardless of the brand.
In a similar way that Kleenex is synonymous with toilet tissue, Swiss Army Knife is a branded name that's come to represent an entire range of actual types of products from different makers. So while some of these Swiss Army Knives aren't made by Swiss Army, they are all small, pocket-sized tool kits.
One of the most useful tools an outdoorsman can carry with him is a Swiss Army Knife. They come in all colors (although the traditional color is red) and feature a variety of tools including a small blade (or two), a file and scissors. One Swiss Army Knife even includes a set of rulers.
