The world's most popular knife, the Classic SD, is combined with the 111mm One-Hand Trekker that offers 6 implements and 12 features, which include large locking blade, corkscrew, can opener, small screwdriver, bottle opener, large locking screwdriver, wire stripper, reamer, key ring, tweezers, toothpick and woodsaw. The knife's black handle is shaped to fit securely in your hand. The Classic SD is equipped with blade, nail file, screwdriver, scissors, key ring, tweezers and toothpick. This Swiss Army knife combination handles all needs.
From the renowned company that created the Swiss Army Knife more than a century ago comes the Trekker, a complete one-handed multitool that's ideal for campers, hikers, and just about any other outdoor enthusiast. Bundled with a free Classic Swiss Army Knife, the Trekker measures just 4-3/8 inches long, with a stylish black housing that provides a nice contrast to the standard red Victorinox body. More significantly, the Trekker contains 12 stainless-steel tools appropriate for just about any occasion, including a one-handed serrated locking blade--one of only three Swiss Army multitools so equipped. The Trekker also includes such items as a bottle opener with a large locking screwdriver and wire stripper, a can opener with a small screwdriver, a Phillips screwdriver, a wood saw, a reamer, a toothpick, tweezers, and a key ring.
The bonus Classic knife, meanwhile, contains six tools to put your life in order again. Measuring just 2-1/4 inches long--less than a pack of gum--and sheathed in the quintessential Swiss Army red casing, the Classic includes a knife blade, scissors, a nail file with a screwdriver tip, a removable plastic toothpick, and removable tweezers. The Classic makes a great portable toolbox and manicure kit, and is small enough to fit in just about any pocket.
As with all Victorinox items, the Trekker and Classic are made to exacting standards, with dozens of individual parts and hundreds of steps going into their 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. Outfitted with a plastic housing, the Trekker 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.
