As yet there’s no laser pointer but this newer model pocket knife / toolkit from Victorinox does have an LED light and a ballpoint pen. Anything this versatile really does go past the definition of knife. The worst thing you might do with this in the woods is lose it.
With so many functions you have to wonder whether all the functions actually work, but the reputation of the Swiss Army Knife guarantees that it will. You can expect the corkscrew to work as well as the short but functional wood saw. Probably the only tool in the kit that I’ve never had reason to use is the parcel hook. I keep trying to come up with a reason for it.
The only real competition Victorinox has seen in years has been the rise of the multi-tools, but in functionality and utility they simply don’t compare. Swiss Army knives are more compact, more durable, and weigh less than multi-tools. I’ve bought half a dozen multi-tools and broken most, but I’ve never worn out a Swiss Army knife.
Whether you hunt or backpack or sail, you’ll have gear that breaks now and then. A Victorinox Huntsman, with a flat tip screwdriver, Philips screwdriver, wire stripper, and reamer (twenty tools in all) gives you a good chance to put things together again. Work on tents. Work on rigging. Work on boots. A little ingenuity will find a way.
