4.0 out of 5 stars The Tinker is almost perfect for daily use, November 15, 2009
My first Tinker model was a black one-- brought to me from Switzerland in the 80s. I used it for years before finding a red version in the US-- at a Surplus store. I have other models, but the Tinker is the only one I carry on a daily basis. I use it, every single day. It has no attachments that I don't need (scissors, corkscrews etc are nice, but I don't *need* them) and its small enough that I don't feel like I have a brick in my pocket. Tweezers are great for picking up tiny lost objects or splinter removal, and the leather punch is a great awl. The only difference between my Swiss version and the "American" (both Victorinox) is that the Swiss one has a Philips head driver with a horizontal "slot" gap in the tip. That allows it to pinch into a smaller head, while the non slotted one is a fixed size for only larger screw heads. I when I found I could get the Tinker in the US so easily, I put the original in my locked box so I don't lose it. Its a super knife, and I am the hero at the office, at parties (I can open the most complicated packaging easily) and anywhere I fine a loose screw, dull pencil or use for a toothpick (which you can buy in replacement packs). I'd give it 5 Stars-- if this version had the slotted Philips head like my import. I own three in all-- black, red and engraved clear blue. [...]has 4 colors & can do the engraved ones, but they're a few $$ higher.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best pair of compact headphones for under $100, April 4, 2009
I am on my 2nd pair. The first ones have survived being washed, heavy workouts and landscaping, and a couple of laundry cycles. I got the first ones at a now bankrupt box store, and they quickly replaced all others I used. The only reason I have new ones is they eventually were crushed between a boot and concrete, though they still work great after gluing the earbud assembly back together. When I found another pair online, I grabbed them as a spare-- and I don't want to ever not have them. The greatest feature is how tight they seal inside the ear. The material is soft, and makes a tight seal. This helps block out environmental noise. I can mow and only hear the music. There is a good amount of bass, and balanced highs. They come in a plastic case, which is nice though I never use it. The only ones I have used that are better were not close to this price range. You can get custom fit ones, or some nice ones made by a four letter company, but they exceed $100. With my active needs, I don't need anything that can't take a beating.
