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 II, a compact set of tools for campers, hikers, hunters, fishers, picnic enthusiasts, and people all trades--all neatly contained in a single implement. Measuring 3-1/2 inches long, the Huntsman II is stylishly red cased matte finish nylon handle. More importantly, the pocket knife contains 14 tools appropriate for just about any occasion. The tools include a large knife blade, small knife blade, can opener, bottle opener, small screwdriver, reamer, sewing eye, tweezers, corkscrew, scissors, hook, wood saw, toothpick, and key ring.


The Huntsman II features 14 convenient tools.

Ideal for stashing in the glove box, utility drawer, tool box, backpack, desk drawer, or any other place imaginable, you'll always find a use for one of the Huntsman II's handy tools.

  • Large knife blade
  • Small knife blade

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 winner

Pictures of my new Victorinox Climber II with its little brother the Victorinox Classic SD. I was a little apprehensive of buying a Victorinox without the traditional Cellidor scales, I was wrong. I love the texturing of the nylon scales, it gives it a good grip. All the stainless steel parts meet the high quality standards I have come to expect from Victorinox. I like keeping these handy around the house and my car, I will end up buying more.
I love it

5.0 out of 5.0 by David on September 6, 2017
I've grown up camping and generally carrying a pocket knife with me my whole life. I've bought a lot of them and used more. For some reason though I never liked Swiss Army Knives. The lack of a locking blade made me nervous so I never used them and it's absolutely not a self defense tool. But I finally gave this one a try and fell in love.

The new handle material is extremely light weight and thinner than the classic plastic but slightly more grippy. Traction still isn't tremendous but the use of the knife should be remembered. It's a non locking blade. You aren't meant to be doing super hard cutting tasks. You can whittle somewhat if you feel like it but that's about my limit for these guys. The non locking 420hc blade is ideal for edc type tasks though. Cutting string, opening packages, cutting food, etc.

I'm not going into detail about every tool but I will say it can be a real life saver to have them when you need them. 80% of the time I use this knife I'm only using the blade but when it's only 2 ounces why not bring along some extras? And victorinox knives are an incredible value. For 10-20$ you can get sooo much for your money.
Comparison of My Favorite Swiss Army Knives (SAKs)

5.0 out of 5.0 by Patrick on June 29, 2016
I have bought and used several versions of the Swiss Army knives. There are plenty of reviews that cover the pros and cons of specific versions of the Swiss Army knives (SAK), so I thought what I would do in my review is cover some of the things I like (or don't like) about the different versions in case anyone is like me and trying decide WHICH SAK they want to by. I did a lot of research before I bought any of the versions and then, of course, personally tried out different versions. So, I thought I would share my experience and what I like and don't like.

Naturally, when it comes to which SAK to buy, there are fundamental choices to be made about what size of SAK you want as well as what functionality. Obviously, that can be personal preference. So, while I'm not going to list the features of each type of SAK, I'll talk about why I like particular knives (or don't) comparing their feature based on my preferences. I think I'm probably fairly "typical", but if you have different preferences your opinions won't necessarily match mine, of course.

I've divided my review up into "small", "medium", "medium plus", and large SAKs.

Small SAK (Swiss Army Knife):

Victorinox Swiss Army Rambler Pocket Knife
Link: http://amzn.com/B000FNFXQS

The Swiss Army Rambler is really amazing in that it gives me the items I by far use the most in a SAK so small it basically disappears in your pocket. There is fundamentally no difference in overall weight or feel to "how much stuff is my pocket" by adding this SAK. It gives me the scissors and blades, which are by far my two most commonly used items, as well as screwdriver, tweezers and toothpick, which I also use quite a bit. I don't use the bottle opener too much, but it's a nice core item to have as well.

So, basically this knife gives me 90%+ of what I really use in a package so small I barely notice I'm carrying it. That's really hard to beat. If I wasn't greedy about wanting things on my every day carry (EDC) SAK (Swiss Army Knife), this would probably be the knife I use every day. As it stands, I mostly use this one when I have dress pants or otherwise less room than usual and one of the bigger ones when I'm jeans (for example).

Victorinox Jetsetter 3 Pocket Knife
Link: http://amzn.com/B00932EPYI

I bought this for the obvious reason of it's a very small knife that can theoretically get you through TSA at the aiport. I thought having a pair of scissors and the screwdriver with me on trips would be nice. The problem is after reading reviews, I've never really had the motivation to try to get it through TSA security. While most people seem to be able to do it fine, it does seem to "draw attention" more than I'd really like according to other people's reviews. So, I've just never bothered to do it.

Given that, I can't really give this version a fair review. If you want to get it scissors on a plane, it sounds like it works. I just haven't had the energy to test that theory when push came to shove.

Medium SAKs:

I'm also a big fan all of the knives in my "medium" category quite a bit. Which one works for you is really a matter of what features you want and if an additional feature is worth the, typically minor, increase in weight. These are 3 of my favorites.

Victorinox Swiss Army Super Tinker Pocket Knife
Link: http://amzn.com/B000MLU8PE
This version is a great option for me. This has all the core items I use regularly as well as some I use less frequently in a size that fits in pocket without being distracted (although it doesn't "disappear" into my pocket like the smaller rambler does. It has large and small blades, scissors, multiple screwdrivers, tweezers, and toothpicks. So, all the core things that I really use the SAK for at a very reasonable size. I don't really notice it in my pocket, but it doesn't quite "disappear" in my pocket with my rambler. I think overall it's a great combination of functionality and size.

Victorinox Swiss Army Fieldmaster Pocket Knife (Red)
Link: http://amzn.com/B00006IS69
The main advantage to me of this one over the Super Tinker is it has the wood saw. While I don't use the wood saw often, I actually use it more than you would think and it works quite well. It is slightly larger than the Super Tinker (because of the saw), but I don't really notice the difference carrying it around. Whether or not you would like it over the tinker depends on how much you want a wood saw.

Victorinox Swiss Army Explorer Plus Pocket Knife (Red)
Link: http://amzn.com/B0007QCOYM
This is another excellent option in the "medium" size SAKs. It has a lot of the elements I really like about the Champ Plus: the eyeglass screwdrivers, the pen, the pin, the magnifying glass, but is not as bulky. Two key things missing from Champion Plus are fish scaler / ruler (which I don't care much about) and the wood saw (which actually I do like as I said earlier). While I like this one A LOT whether or not I use it compared to the Army Fieldmaster depends on if I'm in a wood saw mood or a magnifying glass, eyeglass screwdriver, pen, pin mood. It's also slightly bulkier than the Fieldmaster. I use this one most of the time when I'm not using my champ plus because I typically use things like the magnifying glass and pen more than the wood saw. Also, the screwdriver isn't the "T" screwdriver, which is a bit easier. I also like having an eyeglass screwdriver with me. So, if I had to recommend one SAK to someone, it is probably this one.

Medium Plus SAK:
Victorinox Champion Plus Knife
Link: http://amzn.com/B0009KF4GG
This is one I probably carry more than I should. I like it more than the Champ version (not listed in my review) because it doesn't have the pliers which add significant size and I personally find not very useful. The pliers are too small to get good torque. If I want pliers I end up pulling out a "real" set.

It is of a size that it it is small enough to be an EDC (every day carry) tool, but really just barely in my opinion. It's noticeably bigger than the SAKs I have listed in my medium section, which is why I call it "medium plus". I notice when it's in my pocket, but it's not a nuisance...especially when I'm in jeans. The reason I like it so much is because it has all the cool stuff I want on my SAK and so I can carry it without making the choice I just talked about of do I want the wood saw or do I want the the magnifying glass, glass screwdriver, pen, and pin. With the Champion plus, I get them all! Basically, there isn't any feature I really want on my SAK that isn't on this version. So, I'm willing to put up with something that's a little larger to have the "all in one" feel to it that this has. At least, when I'm wearing jeans or maybe dockers. When I'm in pure dress pants, it's time for one of the smaller SAKs.

Large SAK:
Victorinox Swiss Army CyberTool 41 Translucent Pocket Knife (Translucent Ruby)
Link: http://amzn.com/B000LKBHJM
I'm not going to give this one a very long review, but basically it has absolutely everything I can imagine wanting even if I'm not really going to use it. :) So, I own it on the theory that rather than carrying it on my person (it's too big to carry regularly), it can sit in a drawer or a glove box and I can pull it out when I need it. The problem is, for me anyway, in practice that never happens. By the time I'm going to a drawer to pull out a tool, I can just pull out one of my normal screwdrivers (or whatever) so I do that instead. So, basically this one never gets used. But, I like the IDEA of it a lot. It's cool to own. :) If you are in a situation where you needing a smallish one size fits all tool that doesn't have to go in your pocket, I think this could be awesome.

Victorinox Swiss Army SwissChamp Pocket Knife
by VictorinoxLink: http://amzn.com/B0001GS19U

This SAK is basically the Champ Plus only with pliers. As I mentioned, I don't think terribly much of the pliers, but if I'm just throwing it in a drawer or a glove compartment and not trying to carry it around, why not have one with the pliers. :) I do own one I keep in my car for that reason. Too big to EDC for me.

----------------

Summary: Which SAK you use depends on what you want in terms of size and features. But, to someone not sure, I'd recommend the Victorinox Swiss Army Explorer Plus Pocket Knife (Red) (Link: http://amzn.com/B0007QCOYM). It is a great combination of some of the cool features that I use the most often. If want something really small, go with the rambler. If you can tolerate something a bit bigger, go with the Champ Plus. If you aren't going to carry it and stick it in a glove compartment or drawer, the Champ has everything really. :)
A great gift for women too!!

5.0 out of 5.0 by Shawndra Delaney on June 16, 2015
What can you say about real Swiss Army knives? Well made, durable, useful for anyone. I got one for each of my daughters when they graduated college. The knives were a symbolic gift recognizing my daughters' strength, power, and resourcefulness as a young women who are finding their way in the world. So often only men are given these knives.
Awesome Knife

5.0 out of 5.0 by Chris Gardner on May 23, 2016
This is the Third one I have bought, got this one for my son.

The blades came sharp, and it has a saw. If you have never used the saw on a swiss army knife you're missing out. They will saw through any piece of wood and the backside of them are extremely sharp and will throw wicked sparks from a Ferro rod. Everything else is there that you would expect from Victorinox

Really like the handle material on this one, it's a matte finish which looks really cool and allows for a better grip than the other swiss army knives I own which have the slicker handle. The tweezers are very handy too. Have no doubt this will hold up for years of use just like the others I own
Excellence as always

5.0 out of 5.0 by Ryan on February 5, 2017
This is my 2nd Camper (1st one got lost at work, sad panda moment). In short, if you're looking for a great little Swiss army knife, the camper is a great option. Best wood saw in any tool this size, excellent knife for what it is, corkscrew opens even the most stubborn bottle of wine, can opener is best in class, and the bottle opener/flathead is amazing. I've cut down half dead saplings the size of my forearm with the saw on my first one (I'm 6'2", 235lbs if that helps determine size) to test the saw, and the camper 2 is just as good, but with better handle scales. I carry mine everyday and it's not hard to find a use for it. I highly recommend everybody have at least 1 Victorinox, but once you buy one, you'll buy more. Trust me on that one.

Pros:
Good tool choice
Nice quality, fit and finish
Best in class wood saw and can opener
Great upgraded handle scales on the camper 2

Cons:
A Phillips head would have been a nice choice over the corkscrew

Would I recommend?
If it fits your needs, yes. If it doesn't, I would recommend finding the Victorinox model that does. Spend the few extra dollars and buy the real thing, not a cheap knockoff. The quality speaks for itself. Plus, it's not like Victorinox products aren't an excellent value anyways.
A Girl's Best Friend and a Peerless Pocket Toolkit

5.0 out of 5.0 by Marinite on March 5, 2018
If you're an outdoors-y type or just somebody who likes to be well prepared for a wide range of emergencies on the go, this is the Swiss Army tool for you. I have to admit I've never had a fish-scaling or hole-punching emergency in my urban lifetime, but I like the security of having this handy complement of tools at hand, just in case.

I was first given this model as a gift in 1979, and it provided years of reliable service until somebody broke into my car and stole it. I'd become so attached to that Champion that I would much rather the thief (who should be aware that I subsequently cursed my formerly beloved knife!) had taken my cell phone. The replacement model appears to be exactly the same in construction and quality, with the sole exception of the now rather cheesily made magnifying glass, which is of a cheap, molded plastic construction, unlike the magnifying glass of my earlier model. It's surely suitable to start a fire (which I suppose is its main purpose), but if you were doing some kind of field work and trying to get a close look at something, the newer model's magnifying glass wouldn't be much use. But for my limited needs, the most useful tools were the larger knife, screwdriver, scissors, corkscrew, tweezers and toothpick. Even so, I adhere to the Boy Scout motto, and the Champion makes me feel prepared for unexpected repairs while away from home. And who knows, I may someday find myself needing to saw a very wee branch, or scale a diminutive sardine...
Don't like the new textured scales, but the knife is still fantastic and a total classic.

4.0 out of 5.0 by SF Scrutinizer on September 7, 2017
Definitely not a fan of the new textured scales and embossed/printed logo (they make the knife appear cheap, and wipe out a good percentage of the nostalgia effect), but the knife itself appears to be totally the same quality as the "shiny" more expensive version. For the money I paid (which was on an Amazon special), it was a no-brainer purchase. Superb knife, and I think the Climber model specifically has the perfect balance of tools and weight for EDC. A superb design.

However, I still have to dock one star for the scales. Truth is, even at this price, I would personally hesitate to give this as a gift since Swiss Army Knives have a certain psychological effect on people when they open them up... and the darker, cheaper, textured scales just do NOT give the same sense of awesomeness when you pull it out of the box. In fact, I knew exactly what to expect and it was still a little let-down for me pulling it out of the box. So if that matters at ALL to you, then get the regular version, not the "version II" with the cheaper scales.

Having said that, I have no doubt that the new scales will be durable, and I also understand the argument that the textured surface technically gives the knife slightly better grip... so I get that. I just don't like it. Maybe in a few years or so it will grow on me. But I will never like the cheaper printed logo. So for me, this will be a slightly inferior Swiss Army Knife for cosmetic and (at least for now) nostalgia sake.

But again, the functionality and mechanical design are superb. Worth the money, get one for your car, get one for your EDC bag, get one as backup.
This is an excellent pocket knife!

5.0 out of 5.0 by Eusebius on June 12, 2016
I always have a Swiss Army knife in my pocket, and to quote Mark Twain: "I was a grown man before I was smart enough to carry a pocket knife."

This is an excellent pocket knife, and I always keep this with me and it has come in extremely handy any number of times. It's small enough to carry around in my pocket without any discomfort, and it sure has some great features. A couple of observations:

- The reamer is wickedly effective and the large and small knife blades retain a nice edge. Out of the box, the blades are SHARP so beware. This isn’t a toy. The blades are finely polished and take a beautiful edge with an occasional honing.

-The wood saw is rugged and sharp. Out on a hike, I can easily cut kindling or saplings with no problem. It’s an amazing little saw.

- Never had much use for the corkscrew, but the screwdriver blades have gotten a lot of good use!

Besides my own knife, I've bought these as gifts and everybody loves them.
Mans other best friend

5.0 out of 5.0 by Tanggor on January 4, 2017
In 1986 I got one of these (without the saw and tweezers) and put it in my pocket. That's where it stayed for 30 years, serving as a faithful companion for opening, slicing, fixing, and occasionally biting me when I was careless.

30 years takes a toll, however, and it has now moved on to a well earned retirement in a desk drawer, serving only light duty.

So, now I have this new one, and the quality appears to be on par with my first (and with this version I can saw stuff too). Well built, sharp (and sharper now that I have given it some loving attention) and perfectly sized for front pocket carry. I have no doubt I'll get an easy 30 years out of this one also.

Dependable product.
