Swiss Army Knife Reviews: Victorinox Swiss Army Huntsman Pocket Knife
|4.5 stars, 2 reviews|
My Huntsman is my Companion Wherever I GoI have tried using a lot of multitools and different models and sizes of swiss army knifes but this is my favourite. It is my companion wherever I go. I bought a sheath with a compartment for a solitaire flashlight by maglite that I later replace with fenix E1 flashlight. This is my everyday carry for more than 20 years already and it is still in good shape. The size is just right with my belt sheath that sometimes I don't feel carrying it at all. The blades are still sharp. I use the scissor almost everyday and it still works perfectly fine as it was when I first bought it. The bottle opener has a mileage of ten thousand bottles already over 20 years and shows no sign of wear. I became so dependent to this penknife that I never leave home without it.

I Have Two, Love This ModelFirst of all, my apologies to those of you who have had one of these confiscated/lost/stolen, etc. I've found two, and I use one every day. One I found in 1992, with one red scale missing, so I put wood scales on both sides. The other SAK Huntsman (black scales) I just found this year, and it will go to my son one day. Of all the SAKs I own, this one is by far the most useful. To me, it's just the right size & usefulness.
I've used the corkscrew when ours in the kitchen broke, I sawed though a 2x4 with the saw to prove I could do it (not an easy job), the scissors work great if they're all you have, the little point on the can opener fits #2 phillips screws well enough, screwdriver works on the assembly cams of IKEA type furniture perfectly, and I've done far more than I can even remember with it in the last 15 years. My only question was what was the hook for? A friend once told me that in past times, when packages were wrapped/tied with string, the hook allowed you use the SAK as a carry handle. I guess you could ... ?
