The SwissChamp by Victorinox is one of the most robust multitools in the Swiss Army knife collection, and our version trades the classic red plastic exterior for a handsome hardwood case. With more than two dozen tools in one compact design, it's the ultimate utility for city or trail.
Features a large blade, small blade, Phillips screwdriver, can opener with small screwdriver, corkscrew, bottle opener with large screwdriver and wire stripper, hook, scissors, wood chisel, pliers with wire cutter, fine screwdriver, wood saw, mini screwdriver, fish scaler with hook disgorger and ruler, metal saw with metal file and nail file, straight pin, magnifying glass, toothpick, tweezers, key ring, and reamer with sewing eye.
I am the rare breed who works in a computer server room during the day while hiking in the deep woods after hours, and I needed a handy tool that could work in both environments...and this definitely does the trick. The screwdrivers take care of the screws and fasteners on our racks and the knife removes old zip ties with ease, while the knife cuts off small branches so I can make a rudimentary walking stick. I even used the screwdriver to take a Christmas decoration apart to fix the batteries.
The only complaint I have is that the description said this knife contained a straight pin, which would have been VERY handy to dig out those [censored] metal flakes that embedded themselves into my skin when I picked up that rusty pipe. It does not. An easy fix for that is to store a straight pin underneath the fish hook remover, a tool which I myself will never use.
It may be cheaper elsewhere but I am happy to by it from NG and send them a few extra bucks.
