Description

Because “Ummm, I broke my tooth on a beer-bottle cap” isn't a good story.

Sometimes your arms are so pumped out that it takes you five minutes to untie your figure-eight knot. Opening an energy-bar wrapper is out of the question unless you use the handy scissors on the Victorinox Climber Swiss Army Knife. If your climbing buddy makes fun of you, flip out the reamer and make a few threatening stab gestures. Snag a refreshment bottle out of its cooling spot in the river and use the Climber Knife's bottle opener to gain swift and merciless access to the relaxing liquid. A large and small blade, corkscrew, and small hook fold into this sleek Climber Swiss Army Knife.

Here's what others have to say...

The mysterious hook in use...

The mysterious hook in use...

The parcel carrier is actually very nice for carrying 5 gal. buckets. While that may not be an everyday task and most will never do so... if you do have to ...and you do have a Swiss Army with the hook ...you're in business.

Classic

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

A Swiss army knife is a classic. Good to have one or two or three around. The knives themselves are quality made and come from a great company with a decent warranty. The steel is high grade.

However, I carry a lightweight Gerber with serrated edge when climbing, backpacking, camping or anything else in the outdoors.

Victoinox Swiss army knives are loaded with nostalgia. Having a good knife around is a must. The Climber has plenty of features without being too big to actually handle.

Awesome, just not for climbing

This knife is awesome, I only wish it had a saw. Also, I have yet to ever use the little hook thing on the back.
That said, despite the name, THIS IS NOT A CLIMBING KNIFE. Please do not use it as one; it is an excellent knife, but simply awful for climbing.

A good climbing knife should have:
• A serrated blade
• A locking blade
• Minimalist weight/design
• Good attachment point

Buy it, but don't take it up the wall with you.

If I lost it today, I'd buy another one tomorrow.

I use this thing probably ten times a day. Cutting bread, spreading cheese, trimming my fingernails with the scissors (they work great for this purpose, by the way), opening packages, opening bottles of wine or beer. For me the size is ideal because it slides in perfectly next to my wallet in my back pocket. It's always with me when I'm climbing or hiking. Or awake, for that matter. A larger, high-quality single-blade knife might be more ideal and probably more durable for serious tasks (what are you doing out there, anyway?) but I've rarely needed anything burlier. And sure, you can open anything with a stick, a rock and some determination, but if you're bringing the bottle of Bordeaux you might as well open it with class. The red color has helped me find it in the snow a million times. I still don't know what the hell the hook is for.

Responded on

For others who are also wondering what the hook is for... A parcel carrier. You put the string of the package through the hook and the knife becomes a handle. Probably about as useful as the corkscrew now days.

...on the other hand, the thin handle on many 5 gallon buckets will fit into this hook. Fill one up and you will appreciate having this knife as a handle instead of 5 gallons of liquid/dirt/etc digging into your hand.

One For The Times!

A classic's classic! It still has a cork screw!

I've owned this knife on and off over the last 30 years (Lost the first one, traded the second one). A great city knife/daily pocket knife.

HOWEVER, I wouldn't take it on an expedition or even a backcountry trek. Everything about the army knife is too small, especially when you have gloves on.

Functional, Somewhat Limited

Swiss army knives are great. They are reliable, and if maintained perform well for many years. This knife has some of the most essential tools, such as the straight blade, scissors, and file. It does basic, all-around jobs. It is very useful for keeping in the trunk, in a weekend-bag, or the like. I would recommend one of the more specific and detailed camping knifes for longer trips, or trips where you might need access to more tools.
