This has what I need, and the extras it has might actually be useful, an Awl, phillips and flat screwdriver, two small blades and a bottle opener. No overly extraneous, just the basics. And just the right size.

I would have preferred a carbon steel blade, which takes and retains a better edge than stainless steel - but this arrived sharp and I recognise the convenience of stainless steel when carried everyday and put through the washing machine by accident from time-to time :D. However I prefer my less shiny1950's vintage GS (Girl Scouts!) carbon steel pen knife in the same size and format.
It comes with a handy attachment loop, to which I have attached a leather loop to secure it to a belt-loop on my jeans, as I have lost numerous penknives in the past. I used to carry the metal sided variant of this on my climbing harness for many years, in case emergency (e.g. to cut tape slings for descent anchors) after reading "Touching the Void" by Joe Simpson. Small, very cheap, sharp, light, plastic-sided Chinese lock knives are good enough for that task though.
This is the latest 84mm range model from Victorinox and is more compact than a Camper or Hiker (both 91mm range), making it a perfect companion for a hiking or camping trip when you are trying to keep the weight of your gear as low as possible or even for EDC
It doesn't have the leather punch / reamer as other knives have, but i rarely used it anyway, the only thing i miss are the scissors, but they are not on any 84mm models only on 91mm large models.
I use this pocket pouch for it Victorinox Leather Pouch - Black and it fits perfectly
Swiss made quality for a very affordable price, the tool choice is perfect, I only miss the scissors and phillips screwdriver, but i don't need those tools for outdoors that much so i rather sacrifice them to save on carry weight as this walker is barely noticeable in the pocket
Small enough not to notice in the pocket and sharp enough to do it's job well.
Let me rephrase this again, people buy Victorinox at premium cost for its appealing looks and quality, if you mess up such a simple job then why are you even there? Or why the hell are we paying 3-4 times then we would for tools locally made? ITS FOR LOOKS AND PREMIUM QUALITY!
IT GETS RUINED WHEN IT IS SCRATCHED UP DUE TO USELESS BOX WHILE IN TRANSPORT
AND OFFERING REPLACEMENT DOESN'T HELP, BECAUSE YOU DO THE SAME MISTAKE AGAIN BY SENDING IT IN BOX!!!
I hope you understand the frustration here, my beloved collection of more than 20k has quite few scratches because of you :)
As for the product itself, its high quality and well oiled.
This is slim 81 MM model which fits in casual clothing quite nicely.
Tools provided are;
Large knife, small knife, star head screwdriver, combo tool of can opener and small flat head, another combo tool with large flat head which spring locks in two angles and also has wire striping slot and then trusty awl with sewing head
Along with this we also have toothpick and small pincher in scales, we also get small hole in scales for storing pin in scale. Note that pin is not provided, you have to use your own.
Such a shame that absolutely fantastic product is wasted by silly delivery mistakes!! 5 stars for product but 0 for amazon!
This is wonderful knife and really solid. I own three Victorinox knives of different models, a small one that my wife uses on her key ring, and a larger one I keep in my backpack. This one is just the right weight and size for day to day use.
I keep on my key ring with my car keys and probably the biggest knife of the series that you'd want to carry on a key-ring. The good thing with the keyring holder on this knife (unlike some of the other models), is that the keyring loop is opposite the longer knife, which makes it easier to use the knife when it's still on you keyring, why the other models have the loop at the joint of the main knife sort of confuses me and is slightly thoughtless in design. I guess I'd have preferred the bottle opener at the same side as the main knife as well for the same reason, as I'd guess for most people these are the most used tools on the knife.
Blades and Tools
Blades are really sharp out of the box, although if you're into sharpening then I've no doubt you could get it honed like a samurai sword. But for the manly purposes of cutting up your apple and oranges, and opening boxes, I find it perfect!
The bottle opener is a excellent, and amazingly, so are the screw drivers on the ends. And, I have opened a can with the can opener and it works (and it is a little work), like a charm.
Here is a positive and negative at the same time. You only get the tweezers and toothpick on the plastic handled knives, which is great, and they are useful. BUT. The handles do scratch up quickly and look a mess. For vanity purposes, I've actually put some cellotape down each side to minimise that. But ultimately, it is a tool and not a piece of jewellery, so I guess I'm being a bit picky and it in no way distracts from just how good this knife is. Postage was great, delivery fast even to here on Shetland!
It comes it a pretty rubbish cardboard slip, so if you're getting this as a present, be prepared to buy something to present it in.
Even its just a 2 layer knife from the 84mm range (smaller than the normal 91mm spartan for example) its still action packed with tools and very friendly to first time users with the price and handling.
the main blade is just 5mm shorter than on the 91mm knifes, but still big enough to do the same duty as bigger knifes.
The only downside of it is that its almost impossible to get a belt pouch for it.
The best pouch i found (not for belt carry tho) is this one Victorinox Leather Pouch - Black its made to fit both this 84mm knife and any classic range 58mm knife.
Ideal for 1st time victorinox users, outdoors, camping, field or home kitchen and many more uses, simply a great pocket knife.
You will not get a better price as here, such a high quality Swiss made product for just a tenner.
And of course it is UK carry legal, NON-locking with blades under 3"
the main blade is about 2.5" and the small one is 1.5"
