About the Product
The Victorinox Swiss Army one-hand trekker, as the name suggests, allows you to open the knife's high quality stainless steel main blade with the simple flick of your thumb, thus locking it into place for safety and rugged outdoor use.
For over 100 years, Swiss soldiers have carried Victorinox pocket knives. And the latest iteration is even stronger, lighter and more functional than before. With its 10 functions and grippy two-component scales, this 111 millimeter pocket knife can easily stand up to whatever you throw at it. Here's to the next 100 years!

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 Soldier Swiss Army Standard Issue Multi-Tool Pocket Knife
  • The Victorinox is the similar standard for folders and multi tool designs, these knives are not the most expensive, nor a rarity, yet they have been consistent in delivering exceptional quality and design at a price point that makes them affordable.
  • All that said, this is a great tool for both adults and little ones. Very well made, useful, and with some great improvements over the original SAK.
  • I camp with several knives plus a multi-tool and a Sven Saw, and they all have their uses but this is the one that's always with me. If I had to go it alone in the wilderness with one tool, this is it.
  • Well made and the tools are all useful. The saw blade is really sharp.
  • The bottle opener is the only other tool with a liner lock; it doubles as a big flat screwdriver and it has a little wire-stripper notch onboard (works well on small wires, fyi).

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 Soldier Swiss Army Standard Issue Multi-Tool Pocket Knife
  • This SAK will reside in ecd backpack and replace my rangerwood 55. The rangerwood is a larger and heavy knife compared to the soldier and lacks the one handed opening.
  • It is a good weight and does not have superfluous features.
  • I like the weight and feel of each tool - and the action on the one handed blade is smooth.
  • Convenient size and weight for carrying.
  • The first is the weight of the knife. As I indicated earlier, this kinfe is heavy. In my hands, it feels almost twice as heavy as the SA Huntsman model and at least 25% heaver than the SA explorer, both of which I own in addition to this new knife.

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 Soldier Swiss Army Standard Issue Multi-Tool Pocket Knife
  • The knife blade is locking which is a huge safety improvement. The blade has both straight and serrated sections.
  • The locking piece is solid with the main blade being fit to the metal piece.
  • It's a liner lock, so make sure your child can operate one if that's the intended user.
  • The black rubber part of the scales adds just enough traction to keep it from sliding off the hood of a truck but doesn't make it too difficult to remove from your pocket.
  • The locking feature is especially beneficial and easy to do. I don't remember having any complaints about it.
