The trouble with most Victorinox products is that at first glance they all look so dang similar! And we’ve said this before. You’ve got to know what you need in a pocketknife before even attempting to peruse the Swiss Army Knife listings here.
Fortunately, the Classic pocketknife pictured here takes all the guesswork out of the picture, because it’s primarily designed for minimalism. This is the one you get for your space-conscious friend who doesn’t want a bulky knife, but might need a small tool to carry around just in case the need should arise.
Check out our other Swiss Army Knife Reviews for more substantial tools.
The Classic only has six tools: small blade, scissors, nail file, flat screwdriver, toothpick, and tweezers. It has a key ring on the end so that it’ll attach to your key chain. And yes, it’s small enough to keep a key chain from feeling bulky, since it only measures 2.25 inches.
All the metal featured on this blade set is pure stainless steel. In fact, the Classic even comes with the option of ordering a stainless steel case, too. Other color options include red, pink, purple, blue, hunter green, gray, black, and yellow. And if you’re of the Irish persuasion, there’s even a bright green case with a shamrock logo just for you!
See what we mean? This isn’t the fanciest Swiss Army knife by any means, but it makes a fun stocking-stuffer gift and will introduce anyone to the idea of being prepared for all situations.
