Official Victorinox and Wenger sites:
Of course there are many, many sites to buy new Swiss Army Knives, these can be found using regular search engines for your location.
eBay has become a very popular place to buy second hand Swiss Army Knives and is a great place to buy regular recent models (eg recycled after airport seizures!). However has become very expensive for the older vintage models, as collectors seem to be willing to pay extremely high prices in the auctions.
Different sites may have access to different products and prices. Do your research before you buy!
