HISTORY & HERITAGE
In 1884, Master Cutler Karl Elsener opened a cutlery shop in Ibach, Switzerland. There, he and his cutlers’ union produced the finest steel cutlery, finished with the now-famous proprietary edge preferred globally by professionals and home cooks. Karl supplied the Swiss Army with its standard issue Soldier’s Knife and Officer’s Knife. After the death of his mother, and with the advent of stainless steel, Karl changed the name of the company to Victorinox. It is from those humble beginnings that a worldwide icon was born. Today, Victorinox is still owned and operated by the Elsener family, and both the company and family still resides in the small village of Ibach, Switzerland."

PLEASE TAKE NOTE:
For those of you who are entertaining the "HARDWOOD" scaled version of this knife...: - On my quick, cursory inspection of the HARDWOOD version, it does NOT have the PEN or the PIN (that is next to the corkscrew). Amazon's photos only show ONE side of the knife, and I assumed that it would come with all the same functionality as the ABS plastic scaled versions (Amazon also lists it as having 33 functions just like the plastic scaled versions as well in it's description - it is more like 31). There might be more things missing, but this is what I have discovered so far - and it could be pretty important for some of you out there.
It is still gorgeous, but it is significantly more expensive than the ABS plastic scaled version of the knife. To be missing the pen and the pin is almost like a "double whammy."
The pen is pretty useful as all pens go - the pin is helpful as Iphones require a little "pin-like" device to push the SIM card slots out. I know a lot of people might feel that this is not a big deal - but different people have different needs.
I'm keeping my hardwood version. I can update my review of this item if people express more interest, but it will not be better than what most people already have written.

This is the third Victorinox Swiss Army SwissChamp pocket knife that I've owned. I carried the last two SwissChamps in a black leather Victorinox Pocket Knife Clip Pouch (B000HJKT9Q). When the leather covering the belt clip came off that pouch, I reordered the same model pouch. After several years of use, the grips (aka scales), fell off and, rather than returning the knife to Victorinox, I decided to replace the knife with a new one. When the new SwissChamp came in, I continued using the same clip pouch that I'd used to carry my first knife in, even though the case fell off my belt on several occasions. Unfortunately I didn't learn my lesson until last week when, while on a hike, I lost both the pouch and my knife, when the pouch unclipped from my belt one final time. That turned out to be a rather expensive lesson.
So I bit the bullet and ordered a new SwissChamp. Lesson learned, this time I didn't order a clip-on pouch. Instead, I ordered the
Swiss Army Model 33210 Carrying Case (Pouch), from Amazon. This leather case has a belt loop, rather than a clip. Before I ordered this pouch, I read a number of the many great reviews on Amazon. One of the reviewers, "Tool Collector," noted that the SwissChamp was a tight fit in this case, and that the case was made of dry stiff leather. "Tool Collector" suggested using Neatsfoot Oil to soften the leather of this case. Wanting to avoid scratching the new knife's shinny new ABS scales, I purchased a bottle of Neatsfoot oil to have on hand for when the new case and knife arrived.
When I received my new SwissChamp, and the Swiss Army leather case, I was disappointed to see a number of large scratches on both of the ABS scales (grips). The SwissChamp, which arrived in a sealed Victorinox cardboard box, wasn't wrapped in a protective layer of tissue paper, or anything else. While I'm not sure how the scratches actually happened, I suspect it may have occurred during shipping.
I immediately contacted Amazon's customer service, and they graciously agreed to exchange the knife. While I'm disappointed that I had
to wait another five days for my SwissChamp replacement to arrive, the new leather pouch was nice and supple by then.
The replacement knife arrived in perfect condition.
Only con is I needed a large screw driver and there really isn't a large flat head like on my leatherman but this is a smaller knife.
I used the 2 most useless tools at work!
- The fish descaler to pry a door open because I didn't want to scratch any of the other tools
- The hook to grab a sharp cable stuck in a machine.
So if you are creative and quick thinking there are so many uses for this knife.

I got my very first Swiss Champ 30 years ago as a present from my dad. It cost £45 from Peter Maturi in Leeds then, I don't know how Victorinox have kept the price so low over the years!
The Swiss Champ is the best pocket knife/multitool on the market unless you need a big set of pliers (in which case Leatherman or Gerber are your friends!).
Over the years I have used just about every feature on the Swiss Champ (except the fish scaler!). The newer knives have been improved gradually over the years, adding a pin, better micro screw driver, improved file. The quality of Victorinox steel is much better than leatherman, so I feel confident using the tools without worrying about twisting bits.
We now have three of these knives at home, one for each of us. Invaluable and alongside my leatherman micra it means I am never stuck for a screwdriver, knife or pair of scissors.
The quality and finishing is excellent as is the choice of blades and tools. I have a leatherman Wave and while the two complement each other the Swiss Champ is far more useful on far more occasions.
The one star reviews are clearly from people who've bought counterfeit items passed off as a genuine Victorinox knife. You know from the descriptions they are not genuine as the quailty control procedures used by any real company would never alllow such products to be released as their reputation would be damaged and you can multiply that by ten for a top brand like Victorinox. They are pricey but unless stolen or mislaid will last a lifetime so on that basis are worth a lifetime. Buy one of these and you will not be dissapointed. It is the leather pouches where the high cost cannot be justified.
I've been caught out by fake products sold by unsrupulous sellers on Amazon before and Amazon instantly refunded me. At no point however did I leave a review suggesting the genuine item was rubbish as some have done here.
The SAK has 32 tools that are extremely well engineered. Each tool has been well thought out and positioned very well. Yes, one or two could be in better positions, but you can't please everyone. I could go on and on about each tool but will release you from the tedium.
I carry this SAK everywhere I go and it has been extremely useful. I work in an office environment and have used it many times in the very short period I have owned it. Even in a suit jacket pocket, the knife is unobtrusive. I did look for a sheath for it, but having carried it as is, I am happy to carry it sheathless.
Hope this helps.
