History and Heritage
In 1884, Master Cutler Karl Elsener opened a cutlery shop in Ibach, Switzerland. There, he and the cutlers’ union he formed produced the finest steel cutlery, finished with the now-famous proprietary edge preferred globally by professional and home cooks. In 1891, Karl supplied the Swiss Army with its standard issue Soldier’s Knife and in 1897 with the Officer’s Knife. In 1921, after the death of his mother, Victoria, and with the advent of stainless steel, then known as “inoxydable” and used in the production of his cutlery, Karl changed the name of the company to Victorinox. It is from those humble beginnings that a worldwide icon was born.

Today, Victorinox is still owned and operated by the Elsener family, and both the company and family still resides in the small village of Ibach, Switzerland.

Care Tips for Swiss Army Knives
The various tools are manufactured from high-quality steel with precisely tuned features that are essential for the particular application. The steel is tempered, annealed and polished to achieve the necessary hardness and provide optimum resistance to corrosion.

Sharpening
To re-sharpen your knife, use a whetstone at an angle of 15°– 20°. This will result in a cutting angle of 30°– 40°. If sharpening on a grinding wheel, always cool with plenty of water to avoid excessive temperatures and the resulting damages that may occur.

Cleaning
After you’ve used your Swiss Army Knife for all of its various applications, such as cutting open numerous boxes, you may notice that the blades begin to stick together. Opening and closing the blades in warm water several times will allow the tools to easily move again. Once they have dried, it is recommended, to apply a small drop of oil between the blade or tool shank and the spring. To optimally maintain the locking mechanism, periodically apply a drop of our recommended Swiss Army Knife Oil. Never put Swiss Army Knives in the dishwasher. From the renowned company that created the Swiss Army Knife a century ago comes the Huntsman Knife, a compact multi-tool for camping, hiking, hunting, or around-the-house use. Measuring 3-1/2 inches long, the Huntsman is stylishly cased in the timeless red Swiss Army housing with the familiar Victorinox logo on the side. More importantly, the unit contains a variety of handy tools, including a large blade, a small blade, a can opener with a small screwdriver, a bottle opener with a large screwdriver and wire stripper, scissors, wood saw, a reamer with a sewing eye, a corkscrew, a hook, a toothpick, tweezers, and a key ring.

As with all Victorinox items, the Huntsman is made to exacting standards, with dozens of steps going into its construction. Victorinox attends to every detail, from selecting the finest materials to performing the final inspection. In addition, each individual tool has been hardened in a different way to stand up to its designated use. The Huntsman--which comes with a free storage pouch--carries a lifetime warranty.

About Swiss Army Knives
? In 1884, Swiss cutler Karl Elsener set up shop in Ibach-Schwyz, installing a waterwheel in Tobelbach Brook to run his grinding and polishing machines. Thus began what would become the international brand name Victorinox, a combination of Victoria, for Elsener's mother, and "inox," or stainless steel. Today, Victorinox produces watches, luggage, clothing, and, famously, Swiss Army Knives. The original product dates to 1897, when Elsener patented the Swiss Officer's and Sports Knife he supplied to the Swiss Army. Following World War II, American servicemen and women shopping in PX stores shortened the name to Swiss Army Knife, which lives on in English-speaking countries around the world and has become a metaphor for versatility.

A proven tough and very useful pocket knife.

5.0 out of 5.0 by MGunz on July 7, 2017
This little knife is worth its weight in gold, or at least silver. I carried this knife for many years in my daypack when I was on active duty. It has just the right amount of tools, not to big. Especially useful are the saw (which will cut through just about anything), the scissors (will easily trim finger and toe nails), and the best can opener in the knife business, even better than a "John Wayne". After I retired I went to work as a contractor training international military people. In my job I travel a lot and many times it's to 3rd world countries. This little knife has been invaluable during those trips. Everything from fixing bad bathroom and electrical fixtures to opening cans of food, to cleaning fish and slicing fruit. I have not babied this knife in anyway and it has met every challenge. I have used it a lot in and around salt water and if you just rinse it off, it doesn't rust. The blades are sharp and easy to sharpen. I think the only tool I haven't ever used is the Hook thing? Not sure what that is to be honest and would rather have a Phillips head screwdriver in its place. My knife came with a more subdued red color (see picture) vs. the bright red you see here? Plus I didn't get (or want) a pouch. The bottom line is I've carried this little knife around the world and have used it almost daily with great results. Add to this a machete and I feel like 99% of your cutting needs in a survival situation would be met.
Buy it if you want a great tool but go for the Victorinox EvoGrip if you want a locking blade

The huntsman is MY FAVORITE Swiss army version (well it use to be). I am now on my 4th (due to TSA / losing / other people 'borrowing' them).

The tool-set is in my opinion the best compromise between functionality and size / weight. I find that if you are out in big outdoors you will need at a minimum the knife and the saw. Can and bottle openers also come in handy if you are camping. If you are in a less "outdoorsey" setting e.g. in church or the office then you don't really want to be getting out a 4" flipper so the small knife and scissors are great for those odd jobs without causing fear and weird looks from those around you. Finally, if you are of age - the wine cork screw is essential!

Now why didn't I give it 5 stars? Well, I would like a locking knife blade for that additional bit of cutting safety. That's why I would recommend now the Swiss Victorinox EvoGrip S17; this has basically the same tool-set as the huntsman but has been updated to include a locking blade whilst maintaining a similar size / weight.
Perfect Backpacking Knife, Especially the Saw!

5.0 out of 5.0 by Brian A. Phail on August 28, 2016
The Huntsman model Swiss Army knife is my all-time favorite. I have owned several over the past 30+ years and use them until they wear out, or I misplace them :). I am primarily using these while backpacking, and the Huntsman offers everything I need (or might need) without having a knife that weighs 5 pounds. The must-have features are the two blades, screwdriver, can opener, and the scissors. But, the key discriminator for me is the saw. I have used the saw cut out part of a broken tent pole (forgot to pack the duct tape) that allowed my hike to continue to completion instead of having to abort and backtrack out. This knife has everything I could ever need while backpacking, and comes in a lightweight package at a fantastic price. I recommend these for all of my Boy Scouts to use, and really to everyone. You can't go wrong with this knife.
Exceptional Product

I have several Swiss Army Knives. I am a bit of a knife junkie. I bought this one to carry daily to replace a similar knife that I've carried since 1992. The old one has lost its plastic pieces on the handle. And I just wanted a new one. I am not disappointed. These knives appear to be of the same quality of the Swiss Army Knives that I got back in the early 60's. I will rate this with the same quality, and usefulness as my Ka-Bar, and old made in the USA Gerbers. For anyone who knows those knives, you know what I'm talking about.
Now this is a pocket knife!

5.0 out of 5.0 by Northwest Dad on June 14, 2016
Now this is a pocket knife! Classic Victorinox quality and tools. Each tool is solid, well crafted, fits in the cradle perfectly, and has just the right amount of tension when opening. I have several Victorinox's, used them the past 30-40 years, this is my first black version just so I can distinguish it from my other red ones (quick visual check of color reminds me which tools it has). The ONLY thing I wish Victorinox would consider is to combine this size and all it's current features with a phillips head screwdriver - if they could make that work. You really have to choose between that or a corkscrew without going to a larger version. However, I use the two flathead screwdrivers to compensate on phillips head screws when needed, so not a big deal. I recently bought and returned the yellow EvoGrip Victorinox due to the design and quality feel (or lack thereof) and bought this instead. (I left a review on EvoGrip). Black finish is pretty cool, just don't drop it in the woods at night!
Beautiful....just Beautiful

5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome on August 7, 2017
Very high quality tool set. The Hardwood is an unique rustic presentation of the classic shiny red swiss knife form factor. The presision of the tools alignment is second to none. From the razar sharp blades to the correct saw blade width ( narrower at the top of the blade and wider at the teeth), the tool set will not disappoint any outdoorsman. A great value for a heirloom quality pocket knife.
Fits in my large hands nicely, and the hardwood looks great

5.0 out of 5.0 by Micah on July 20, 2016
Fits in my large hands nicely, and the hardwood looks great. Not sure if I'll ever use the hook or reamer, but the other tools will be nice to have on hiking or camping trips. The knife blades are both nice and sharp out of the box, and the large one is more substantial than I expected, a nice surprise. The scissors and saw are both top quality. A lot of people say the saw is worthless, but it's super sharp, and would be valuable in a survival situation. I'd take this beauty over most pocket knives at the same price point. I'm actually surprised Victorinox doesn't charge more for their knives, they have great brand recognition and produce a premium product. If they charged 65-75 dollars for this I would consider it a fair deal.
Not Their Usual Level of Quality

4.0 out of 5.0 by Greg on April 26, 2016
As a woodworker, remodeler person, having a Swiss Army knife in my pocket is just something necessary. I use mine every day and can't understand how people get along without one. This is my fourth Huntsman - they get worn out - and perhaps my seventh knife in the last 48 years. I've also bought several as gifts and up until now, they've all been perfect. This one has a couple minor defects. The saw was incompletely sharpened and has burrs on most of the teeth, and the can opener hook is rounded over so it doesn't bite the can edge as well as it should. Fortunately I have sophisticated sharpening equipment and it's easier for me to fix the problems than send it back for replacement. Regardless, it's still an amazing tool!
it isn't like I don't have plenty of knives

5.0 out of 5.0 by Sean Downing on November 16, 2014
This is my fourth Huntsman. The first one, I carried for nearly 8 years before it was stolen out of my desk (I am a teacher). The second one, I dropped thirty feet onto a concrete floor. The knife landed, blade-open and pointed straight at the concrete. It bent over nearly 45 degrees. I of course tried to straighten it on an anvil, which of course resulted in a broken blade. You want that in a knife, really. If it had bent back, I would have been suspicious. The miraculous thing is that the knife held together, didn't even loosen up. My Case or my Remington would have exploded into pieces. SO I bought another one. It came in around Father's Day, and my dad has always looked at my black Huntsman with envy in his eyes, so I gave that one to him. I tried and tried to get by without another one; it isn't like I don't have plenty of knives... but, like my philosophic friend here, I spent many hours contemplating the merits of the black Huntsman: I spend a great deal of time in the woods, in the wood-shop, on a farmy kind of property, and in a theatre or classroom. I hunt, fish, backpack, carve, whittle, and make stringed instruments for my hobbies. In every one of those situations, every other knife I own falls short in some way. And yes, I have used the scissors to trim both my mustache and my nose hairs, as well as my eyebrows. I have even used the strange little hook on the back of the knife to remove a hot pot of cowboy coffee from an extraordinary little campfire in the Rocky Mountains from time to time. My only complaint about the Huntsman, or any other Victorinox knife, is that, aesthetically, pulling a plastic-handled knife from my possibles bag at a mountain man rendezvous just doesn't look right. I wish they made one with an antler or bone handle.
Cheers
So good I had to buy one for my father.

I bought myself one of these a few years ago (wooden style). This has been my go to tool for all of my backpacking trips. I have used just about every single aspect of it over the laat several years and I dom't have a single complaint. It's small and compact and doesn't feel weighted in the pocket like many other tools.

This past Christmas, I ended up purchasing another one (black style) for my father. Though he doesn't have aa much use for it as I do, he still enjoys having it handy at all times.
