Victorinox Swiss Army Soldier PocketA few quick things about Victorinox, Swiss Army knives, and the Soldier pocket knife:

  1. Every Victorinox comes with a manufacturer warranty against defects of workmanship or material for the lifetime of the pocket knife.
  2. Ex-Secretary of the US Department of Homeland Security, Tom Ridge, exclusively recommends the Swiss Army pocket knife for use in an emergency kit.
  3. The Victorinox Soldier is the Official Standard issue pocket knife of the Swiss Army.

Not a bad list of endorsements. The Soldier is a really stylish and simple pocket knife. All the tools are made of high-quality stainless steel, with brass rivets and brass bushings to hold the layers together, and rust-free aluminum alloy separators. The tools include: one large blade (just short of 31/2''), reamer, can opener with small screwdriver, and cap lifter with large screwdriver/wire stripper. Not many tools, but the basic essentials. The handle is knurled silver alox, which means it is composed of aluminum oxide that is silver in color. Alox is a good, solid material used for its hardness and strength, and the Solider is better for being encased in it.

I really like the design of the Soldier. I think it is a great size, light weight, and looks good in any surroundings. To me, this is sort of a gentleman's all around multi-tool, one that would be helpful to have in the pocket of a camo field jacket, or a tuxedo jacket.
