Wlaszovits Stos. was founded by Joseph Wlaszovitz in 1803 in what was then East Slovakia. The company manufactured cutlery and edged weapons, and supplied the Austro-Hungarian army exclusively by the late 19th century. After 1945, the company was absorbed by Sandrick, the famed Czech cutler that exists to this day.
