What customers say about "Key Specs"
Victorinox One-Hand Trekker Swiss Army Multi-Tool Pocket Knife
  • The tool selection is well thought out, the quality is supreme, the steel is fantastic, and the price is staggeringly low.
  • The next tools are pretty common Victorinox offerings, including cap lifter/large flat driver/wire stripper, can opener/small flat driver, 90 degree Philips driver, and reamer.
  • The One-Hand Trekker is a very nice knife and multipurpose tool.
  • It’s nice to have the extra tools. I have used some, like the bottle opener and the tweezers. I haven’t use most of the others like the wood saw and screw drivers, but it’s nice to have them.
  • I wanted a one tool option with a one handed open blade and other tools as well. I got this model with a full straight edge.
Victorinox Forester Swiss Army Knife (Black)
  • The saw is very useful for cleaning deck board gaps and will cut thru small PVC or ABS pipes in seconds.
  • This has the perfect combination of utilities for camping, the wine opener, screw drivers, and the saw.
  • This model has the tweezers - handy for slivers, a bottle opener and screwdrivers.
  • Excellent product. Everything you need without too many bells and whistles.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Victorinox One-Hand Trekker Swiss Army Multi-Tool Pocket Knife
  • The trekker is legal size length for pocket carry in my state and that was one of the reasons I chose this model for everyday carry.
  • The length of the blade is about 3 inches, so it's a bit longer than most other designs of Swiss Army Knives.
  • The length makes it easy to cut food. Very satisfied!
  • Nice length on the locking blade,two screw drivers,saw,bottle opener,and tooth pick.............everything a man needs for work,play,or leisure.
  • My only realy complaint about the knive is the strange serrations on the main blade, with only a short length of plain edge near the handle.
Victorinox Forester Swiss Army Knife (Black)
  • I always have it in my pocket as a general tool and use it every day.
  • This one is slightly larger, so might not work for you as a “pocket knife “. But I am farm raised and a pocket knife, first and foremost is a tool.
  • It's Swiss Army quality with the basics of everyday life without excessive size and weight. The perfect EDC pocket knife.
  • I like the larger size; it feels more secure in my hand, and I particularly like the locking main blade - it's not going to close until I want it to.

What customers say about "Features"
Victorinox One-Hand Trekker Swiss Army Multi-Tool Pocket Knife
  • The blade locks, which isn't very important to me however some people find that to be a must.
  • I like that it has a locking main blade, which is crucial for any sort of knife. The liner lock feels quite sturdy.
  • The grip is slippery; most of my other EDCs are rougher and easy to hold.
  • Great one handed opening option. Locks secure. Hair busting sharp right out the box.
  • No pocket clip. I wear most of my EDCs inside my pocket but clipped to my pocket.
Victorinox Forester Swiss Army Knife (Black)
  • This is a wonderful knife. The locked blade is very secure and easily retracted.
  • This is one Amazing pocket tool. Love it. Smooth blade for easy sharpening. Perfect.
  • The black handle has recently been hard to find. I enjoy the straight edge of the blade as opposed to the knifes with serrated edges.
  • A beautifully crafted knife with all the essentials I'm every likely to need, has a reassuring weight in the hand, the main blade takes and holds a keen edge when carefully honed on a wet stone . With its black handle, an iconic male possession.
