About the Product
When you hear the words Swiss Army Knife, chances are you think of the legendary Officer's knife. And that legend continues with the Fisherman pocket knife. It was designed and built with the needs of the fisherman in mind, so naturally it includes a fish scaler and a hook disgorger. Keep it in your tackle box and you'll always be ready for the next big catch.
When you have an Officer's knife in your hand, you're holding more than 100 years of Victorinox tradition. And the tradition lives on with the Angler pocket knife. It was designed and built with the needs of the fisherman in mind, so naturally it includes a fish scaler and a hook disgorger. Keep it in your tackle box and you'll always be ready for the next big catch.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Victorinox Fisherman Swiss Army Knife, Red (1473372)
  • Really light weight for all of the things it can do. I personally prefer the pliers but to each their own.
  • It is the perfect size and weight for a pocket, with many useful tools.
  • It was easy to access the tools (I have arthritis); a good size to hold and my pocket didn't sag with it's weight.
  • It has a "weight" to it that speaks of its' sturdy construction (take the scissors application for instance, it has a solid feel unlike many others), but it's not overbearing like a lot of other devices.
  • t's not to heavy when it's in my pocket, it's just the perfect size and weight.
Victorinox Angler Swiss Army Knife, Red (1.3653.72)
  • This knife is not too small or too big to always have with myself.
  • This has all the core items I use regularly as well as some I use less frequently in a size that fits in pocket without being distracted (although it doesn't "disappear" into my pocket like the smaller rambler does.
  • It is of a size that it it is small enough to be an EDC (every day carry) tool, but really just barely in my opinion.
  • The tool to size ratio is great. Lots of functions and barely noticeable in your pocket.
  • Exactly what I wanted in a medium-sized Swiss Army Knife.

What customers say about "Features"
Victorinox Fisherman Swiss Army Knife, Red (1473372)
  • I purchased this knife about 4 months ago and have used it extensively since. It has, pretty much, all the necessary tools you need for fishing, and, they all work perfectly.
  • It's awesome! It is such a pretty knife. I am going to use this knife for fishing and camping.
  • The multipurpose hook can be good for pulling up tent stakes if you are a camper, Everything functions well.
  • Everything is as described, including the fish detail.
  • As described. The blades are sharp enough out of the box. With an afternoon of work, they'll shave your arm. Very pleased with this purchase.
  • Great knife but not as shown. No fish on the side of knife like my old one. Like the fish shown on this the order picture.
Victorinox Angler Swiss Army Knife, Red (1.3653.72)
  • This is the best choice for anyone who enjoys Swiss made knives and fishes. I couldn't be more happy with this knife. It came razor sharp and very durable. Would recommend to anyone as a good all around knife.
  • I use this knife fly fishing and has everything i need on my vest. I use it with a bungee cord.
  • I got this for my boyfriend on our 5th month. He love fishing so he was extremely touched when I gave it to him :)
  • Am a fisherman and wanted something small for two purposes. One to crimp small lead weights (pliers) to put on the line and a knife for cutting line. This knife foots the bill.
  • Edge retention is excellent and it has performed much better than any other knife I ever owned. I have had many knives but always gravitate back to Victorinox for everyday carry pocket tool.
