5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Indeed, December 5, 2003
This review is from: Victorinox Swiss Army Classic SD Pocket Knife (Sports)
After 14 years of service my Victorinox mini-Swiss Army Knife (SAK) has finally begun to show its age: the toothpick went missing, the enamel casing cracked, the insignia fell off. So I've bought another (the original sits in a drawer, its knife blade as sharp as ever, the screwdriver still perfectly utile, the scissors are gummed up but could probably be cleaned out with some rubbing alcohol).
For versatility and simplicity it's hard to beat this item. Sure there are SAKs with more blades and tools, but the simple knife/screwdriver/scissors combination is going to meet the vast majority of your needs (ok, it doesn't have a bottle opener: use a door strike plate, MacGyver). The toothpick is so-so, but I can't count the number of times I've needed to tweeze something and used the SAK tweezers when I couldn't find the bathroom set. The key fob, while not the most exciting of features, does provide a convenient way to carry the SAK around with you.
This item is sure to please. I love mine. You'll love yours. Buy one for someone else - they'll love theirs.

Cute, but the blades are a bit dull...

I like your review because you used the word "utile".

they carry a lifetime warranty, so you could have just sent the old knife back. I saw the ultimate factory episode and when they filmed it, the factory received a knife from 1924 that they were going to restore it for the person for free. Also the website carries replacement parts like tweezers, toothpicks, ball point pens, and springs for the scissors or pliers.
