Great Value Package,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Victorinox Swiss Army Tinker Classic SD Combo Knife Set (Sports)
I ordered two of these: one for my desk and one for an Xmas gift for my brother-in-law. In-case you are wondering, it comes in one of those plastic clear packages designed to hang on store hooks (the ones that are impossible to open without a big pair of scissors or, well, a Swiss Army Knife). Sure, it is not a fancy gift box, but at roughly $17, it is a fantastic value.
The knives are as good quality as any other Victorinox knives I've had go. This is a great way to have the essentials at a low price. The build quality is great, but I did find that there was an excess of oil on the blades when opening the knife for the first time. Be sure to have a tissue handy.
-The Tinker - probably the most commonly used SAK in the world. This is just like the original Spartan, but has a Philips screwdriver instead of the corkscrew. It comes with the essentials - blade, smaller blade, bottle opener/wire stripper/flathead, reamer, screwdriver, and bottle opener. The reamer itsself has a farely sharp blade on it, and so does the can opener. To many, this knife will have all they need and then some on a package that is farely thin and light. I find that SAK's that are thicker than this (2 slots) can be unwieldy and heavy to carry around in the pocket from day to day.
-The Classic - Great little knife to keep in the bag, in the desk, by the couch, or just about anywhere. It is tiny, and has a good blade, a nail file with a small flathead end, and a pair of scissors. I've used these scissors just about my whole life to cut my nails, and they work fantastic.
These two knives make a great pair, and could be a good gift that will be treasured by the recipient for a long time to come. Not only will they last through many years of good use, but Victorinox backs them up with an awesome lifetime warranty. It is also a timeless classic, and who doesn't appreciate that?
