The Victorinox Explorer Swiss Army Knife was designed for the recreational explorer. You shun the ordinary and charted parts of life. You're seeking new paths, roads, and avenues that lead to possible, new destinies. This pocket knife has 16 amazing tools that help you conquer the obstacles to new discovery; including a cap lifter, screwdriver, wire stripper, reamer, punch, key ring, tweezers, toothpick, scissors, multi-purpose hook (parcel carrier), Phillips screwdriver, magnifying glass, and of course the always reliable blade. All this in a small 3-1/2 inch body!
The company that created the renowned Swiss Army knife in 1897 offers this 15-tool pocket knife toolbox for campers, hikers, hunters, fishers, and other outdoor lovers--plus a leather belt pouch at no additional charge. All tools neatly fold up inside a single implement sheathed in durable plastic that measures just 3-1/2 inches long and has a key ring on the end. Tools are all stainless-steel, except for a plastic toothpick. In addition to the toothpick, the tools comprise a large knife blade, small knife blade, can opener, bottle opener, small screwdriver, large screwdriver, Phillips screwdriver, wire stripper, reamer, magnifying glass, tweezers, corkscrew, scissors, and hook. The Explorer carries a lifetime warranty against defects.
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 forerunner of that name 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 or versatility.

The one issue he has is with the pouch. As you can see from the photo, the knife fits and the pouch does close, but not as flat and flush as it should. Because of this slight gap, he keeps the tool in his pocket so as not to snag it on anything and run the risk of losing it.
Since the pouch is free with the purchase of the knife, he doesn’t consider it a big deal. Hence the five star review. There are many knife pouches available online and in stores so a replacement is possible and likely in the future. Despite the less than ideal pouch, this tool is still a good deal for the price.
I got these for the twins after replacing my Super Tinker I had lost with a Champ Plus. That seemed a little bulky for them so got this model. The magnifying glass should be good for young explorers. The pouch should protect these more for the boys. I wish I had one for my Champ Plus.
