What customers say about "Key Specs"
Victorinox Climber Swiss Army Pocket Knife
  • The tool is very thin and the tip isn't good for Philips screws, only good for flat heads. Also, there is no small blade.
  • The tool line-up is very useful. I do not miss the #2 Phillips screwdriver, lots of people complain about that not being there.
  • The scissors are very sharp, very nice to use, and IMO some of the best multi-tool scissors out there.
  • I slip this elegant little tool in my pocket every single day, and it's amazing how many uses I find for it. If you have this with you, you're prepared for a great many eventualities.
  • I don't like the all purpose hook on the back of the tool. They've been putting that on all of the knives that have scissors since the early 90's.
Victorinox Huntsman Swiss Army Multi-Tool, Pocket Knife
  • The knife truly is a spare toolkit. The blades hold an edge. The scissors are sharp and the spring action is a huge plus. The can opener really works.
  • The woodsaw is great for cutting crusty bread. The scissors cuts quickly, and the two blades are great for opening boxes or whittling marshmallow sticks.
  • The scissors are perfect and sharp. The wood saw is useful for other materials as well. SHARP blades!
  • The scissors are safer and less scary looking to onlookers who might not appreciate opening a knife around them. Great for opening blister packaging and the like.
  • The blades are sharp and useful. Scissors came in real handy on more than one occasion. The saw blade is sharp.
  • The only problem is that the blade is made from stainless steel so it blunts very quickly and i have to sharpen it regulary.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Victorinox Climber Swiss Army Pocket Knife
  • This knife is almost exactly the same as the Spartan in terms of size. It's big and has two slots with tools.
  • Overall, it's a great tool. Just not "perfect" right out of the box. It's a good size for pocket carry.
  • Love this knife, it's the perfect size and collection of tools.
  • I like the weight and the size and it has the tools that I need. I think I just need to open and close the tools many times to easily access them, they are a little tight.
  • Perfect size for purse. Scissors are nicely sized, cork screw and bottle opener are perfect for when away from home and those items are to big and bulky to carry.
Victorinox Huntsman Swiss Army Multi-Tool, Pocket Knife
  • It is not too big, it is not too small and it stands up to a multitude of uses and abuses. It really is a pocket-sized tool kit and a must have for hiking, backpacking, camping and everyday use.
  • It's also the perfect size, not crazy big and thick, and also not too small. Just right to handle with adult or smaller sized kids hands.
  • This pocketknife is the perfect size and design, in my opinion, for everyday carry and use, in both the urban and wild environments.
  • I find this knife to have everything I need for most occasions and it's still small enough to comfortably fit in the pocket. The 91 mm tools are big enough to be very useful.

What customers say about "Features"
Victorinox Climber Swiss Army Pocket Knife
  • The flathead screwdriver/bottle opener "locks" into place at the 90 degree position and the in-line position. Good for getting more torque on tight screws.
  • The transparent scales are neat but show scratches.
  • It is very sturdy, feels good in the hand and is exactly what i wanted.
  • The scales don't show scratches as quickly as the traditional scales as it seems to be a different material that has a slight bit of texture to it as apposed to the high polish finish that looks great out of the box but doesn't stay that way long.
  • Love the color of the scales, very hard to lose this knife if you set it down in the foliage of the forests.
Victorinox Huntsman Swiss Army Multi-Tool, Pocket Knife
  • With the light but strong nylon handle and light aluminum interior tool separaters, this LIGHT but STRONG knife w/the very precision steel tools is the best for the outback.
  • I'm glad that I did not skimp on quality, because after six months of using this thing, it is as good as the day I got it.
  • It has the perfect combo of features for camping, hunting, and general every day use.
  • Easy to use and very sharp. Great anti-rust material. Easy to clean. Some warm soapy water and a brush.
  • It's red. the color makes the knife easy to find if you accidentally drop it.
  • I like the product itself, but the plastic on the sides is not as strong as i would like it to be. After being dropped a few times, the one side has begun to crack and flake away.
