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.

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.
