With such a varied array of sizes and combinations available, any knife user could find a Swiss Army knife to fit their personal needs. Narrowing down that choice is tough, but for many who focus on everyday chores and an occasional trip to the woods, the Nomad covers your bets pretty well.
With an attractive red and black Cellidor handle 4-3/8 inches long, this Swiss Army multitool manages to offer nine good tool choices and still fit in the pocket. The weight saving choices make the difference, since the Nomad focuses heavily on the Swiss Army multi-purpose blades.
First, you get a large spear point plain-edged knife blade of high carbon stainless steel. This main blade locks in the open position with a stainless steel liner lock mechanism. That’s enough tool to handle many jobs by itself. Backing that up, you’ll find a large flat screwdriver blade which also opens bottle caps and strips wire; a small flat screwdriver blade with a can opener option; finally, a reamer, corkscrew, and key ring. Some owners prefer to use the key ring to attach a wrist lanyard.
The Swiss Army Nomad offers the most popular blades for the everyday user without the awkward and heavy assortment of tools knife fanciers love to collect but seldom use.
For the knife which inspired the Nomad and gave rise to the entire Swiss Army series, see the 125th Anniversary Heritage edition of the Swiss Army Soldier.
