My Favorite Swiss Army Knife,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Back in high school, I was gifted a Swiss Tinker Deluxe very much like this one. The only differences were that the old knife had a pair of pliers, and didn't have the hook. Tragically, I lost that knife.
Much to my relief, Victorinox still makes a few comparable models. I love my new Super Tinker even more than my original knife!
Here's how I use mine:
1.) Large-blade - Cut slices of fruit while I eat/general purpose.
2.) Small-blade - Opens letters
3.) Scissors - Cut paper, strings, and finger-nails (My favorite tool)
4.) Flat-head screwdriver/bottle-opener - Great for prying computer keys, and Sam Adams bottle-caps.
5.) Can-opener/mini-screwdriver - Open small cans of mandarin oranges
6.) Leather-punch/reamer - Add new holes to my belt. Takes seconds!
7.) Phillips-head screw-driver - Computer maintenance
8.) Hook - This tool is for carrying parcels wrapped with string, and for pulling tent stakes.
9.) Tweezers - Glass in the foot, slivers of wood in my hand.
10.) Tooth-pick - Don't use the tooth-pick.
I really can't recommend this knife (or many of Victorinox's other models) highly enough. If you know a young person who is just starting out, this is really a very special gift to get them up and on their way. It's a sturdy, reliable friend that they will treasure for decades.
