Great redeeming design for the Victorinox can opener. The screwdriver IS most handy. I've even used mine for larger phillipsheads.

JJ, I agree the Wenger scissors are more robust. I'm in a quandary over the can opener because I find the Vic screwdriver so dang handy.

I like the lever springs that Wenger put on their knives.
The use of a traditional style can opener is a plus also. The Victorinox can opener takes some practice.

Ron,

Thanks for the feedback. I got it years ago .. late 80's / early 90's .. new .. from a salesman that was trying to land a contract with the company I was working for at the time.

.

Note: I was chief engineer & had a display of knives in my office & indeed had influence over who would be awarded the contract ..&.. he was blatantly trying to influence the decision by "gifting" me this knife.

.
The slip-joint pliers & the scissors are wonderfully functional ..&.. I make that statement based on actual use !!! I've modified the can opener to have a longer cutting edge. It is also quite functional .. based on actual use. The modification is noticeable if one blows the pic up.

.

The screwdrivers certainly do their job too .. I just wished they locked in their open positions. The awl .. I have used to pierce everything from leather to aluminum & can report that it functions as intended.

.

The blade steel I have found to be slightly on the soft side. This is strictly based on a personal observation of rolling the edge over when attempting to sever a deers hide after skinning & needing to remove the lower leg from the hide. i.e. My brothers & I hunt on the family farm in WI & do the butchering ourselves. We work in teams. One team performs the skinning & quartering while the another will do the deboning & cutting of the meat .. a 3rd team does the packaging for freezing .. while a fourth will do the grinding of the burger material. Some of our wives also actively participate.

.

My personal responsibility is the deboning & the sharpening of everyone's knives. Anyway .. the lower leg & bone needs removed from the hide before rolling up the hide for later selling. I did this while taking a break from the above outlined tasks & actually didn't have a knife on me at the time ..so.. grabbed this one out of the glove box of my vehicle & attempted to do just that. I rolled the edge over in this attempt. I ended up going to the house to get an actual hunting knife in order to finish the job.

.

That is the only shortcoming I've ever noted in the knife. And, I've used it extensively since late 80's ~ early 90's.

.

Again .. Thank You .. for identifying the actual model.

Jan, thanks for the heads up on that judgment against Maxam (B&F System).  That was really interesting -- it was decided by summary judgment, meaning that the counterfeiting was so obvious that no further trial was necessary -- & this one may not have even made it to trial at all.  More unusual, from what I can tell, is that such stiff penalties were brought without even going through the full trial process.  Maxam will almost certainly appeal, & it'll be interesting to hear their argument(s) on appeal.

Meyer for infringement of Victorinox’s iconic registered trademark for red-handled multi-function pocket knives.
