Swiss Army knives have been around for many years and are one of the most popular multi-tools around. I was first introduced to them by my grandfather who had one with many functions. I was very impressed how many different items could be packed into such a small package. He gave me one of his older Swiss Army knives which I still have to this day.
A few years later I decided to buy my own Swiss Army knife. I got the Super Tinker which has tools such as knife, scissors, flathead and phillips screwdriver, as well as things like bottle opener, tweezers, and toothpick. It was a great purchase and I got a of use out of it.
Some time later, I was taking a trip where I had to fly to another location. I did not have too much experience with flying so I thought it would be ok to bring with. Unfortunately it got stopped at the check-in and they would not allow my to bring it with. We were in a hurry so I was not able to check it or set up a way to send it back home so I ended up having to leave it there. It was pretty disappointing but I soon replaced it with the same model.
I have had the Super Tinker for many years now and it is still in great condition. One thing about authentic Swiss Army knives is they are super high quality. I didn't even realize how good the quality was until I was given a multi-tool from a different company as a gift. The quality on the other tool was no where near the quality of the Victorinox. It made me appreciate it even more and want to write up this article here about them.
I would consider it one of my best purchases in terms of quality, value, and usefulness. If you have never had one of these before, I recommend checking them out. They are available in many different styles and sizes ranging from simple pocket knives to multi-tools with dozens of functions. They are available online at Swiss Army, Amazon, as well as local retailers such as Walmart and Target.
