Victorinox Explorer Swiss Army Knife
Best all around army knife
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I did take a while to pick which army knife to buy, I wanted something that I could use for most scenarios, and got around to picking this one, it turned out great! The only downside was that it got shipped pretty easily, I just bumped against a wall with it in my hand and a piece of the side went flying away, so be careful of not letting it fall down.
For Father's Day
I bought three of these. Two father-in-laws and a step dad. I was happy to give them, and received a thank you from all three. Great gifts and will be useful in the future. Peace out.
Explorer Swiss Army Knife
Great blend of tools, only thing missing is the mini-pliers. Sadly replaces one I'd bought in Switzerland back in '98 and lost to TSA this year! Definitely lighter than my original but not sure if that necessarily means it won't hold up. Time will tell.
You get the multi-purpose tool without the weight and bulk of many multi tools. Quality is ok, not up to par with some of the quality blades but for this price you really can't expect it to. Works good for carrying in my bike backpack.
I've been carrying one of these for years and I'd feel naked without it. The magnifying glass has come in handy for everything from first aid (finding slivers) to identifying bugs in a trout stream. The only thing I haven't used it for yet is starting a campfire. I'm actually looking forward to the day when everbody forgets to bring matches. I just hope we make that discovery before sunset.......
