Swiss Army's most popular knife, the Classic SD, is combined with the 91mm Tinker to create a great set of Swiss Army knives that is perfect for anyone.

The Classic SD measures just 2-1/4 inches long--less than a pack of gum--and comes equipped with a blade, nail file, screwdriver, scissors, key ring, tweezers, and toothpick.
About Swiss Army Knives
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 little one I carry in my pocket day-to-day. It does just about anything expect start a fire. I especially like the toothpick and the scissors ... and the flat head file/screwdriver ... and the knife is so sharp ... the tweezers are so cool and great for removing a splinter. Oh, I guess that means I pretty much like the whole knife.
The larger one I keep in a bedside drawer for when you need a handy screwdriver, or bottle opener, of slicing open that package from Amazon, etc. For me, I would probably prefer to have scissors instead of a punch tool, but hey ... I have small scissors in my pocket and if I need to punch through something, I'm covered.
Quality is great. Knife is sharp. You can't go wrong with these ... but keep them out of the hands of little children, they are NOT toys.
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?
Now for the value, I paid $25 for this set. That's a steal for the Tinker alone, but this comes with a Classic SD as well! I always thought the Classic SD, while great, was a little overpriced at $15-20 on average. It's a tiny blade with just scissors and a nail file accompanying. Very useful and great on keys (and I'm a guy who HATES bulky key fobs), but not worth the price stated. This whole set was $25, a great way to get the Classic SD without overpaying, and to get the most useful medium/small EDC SAK out there.
Further, Victorinox quality is superb. Comparing it to my Wenger, it is definitely better (Victorinox bought Wenger, so the question is somewhat moot, but still worth comparison), with Wenger still being great quality. Amazing that a brand with such heritage and high standing, in a market with not a lot of competitors, could be so affordable (look at Buck or Kabar for comparison in regular knives - both storied and quality in a field with a lot of competitors, but both somewhat expensive).
Finally, at first I was torn between the Tinker and Alox Cadet. The Cadet was thinner, and the Alox scales would age better than the classic plastic handles. However, the Cadet is missing the back two tools of the Tinker (philips driver and awl/sewer), and it was more expensive than the Tinker. Once I came across the Tinker+SD bundle, my decision was made, too god to pass up. So happy with this purchase.
