Victorinox Swiss Army Classic SD

Several handy, frequently needed little tools on one small unobtrusive "knife." I've had mine ~25 years; the Victorinox symbol just fell off the body a month or two ago, but all the tools still work. Lost the toothpick, but found I really missed it, so I was able to order replacements! Airport security has tried to confiscate this tiny tool from me several times when I forgot to remove it from my key ring, but I've managed to hang onto it.   Full review

Victorinox Swiss Army Classic SD

The best tools are the available ones. I've carried this tiny set of tools on my key ring for perhaps 20 years. It weighs nothing, arouses no anxiety in the office, and causes the Police no concern—although it's not legal to carry on a flight in the UK. Made of stainless steel with plastic scales (or alloy, for a few pounds extra), the classic is 58mm in length and features a pen blade, file, flat head screwdriver, scissors, toothpick and tweezers, plus a loop to attach to a keyring. None of the… Full review

Leatherman Skeletool

A minimal approach to a multi-tool after years with the now-discontinued Leatherman Wave. I like that it’s lighter and less expensive. Definitely worth getting a case and extra driver bits. I wish it had one non-serrated blade. Very solid build quality. Leatherman’s Skeletool is a great option for people who wonder why they don’t use all the fold-out attachments on a multi-tool or Swiss Army knife. As with any simplified tool, there are certain options that people might miss; if so, look at… Full review

Victorinox Swiss Army Swiss Champ

Nice blades and has everything, but too heavy and cumbersome. I've had one of these for over 30 years. Went for the "ultimate" pocket knife.  While it does have everything, most tools just really aren't necessary and make the knife overly thick and heavy. It is nice, but it never ends up going on trips with me. The standard Victorinox Swiss Army Knife has everything one would usually need and is lighter, more compact, and 1/4 the price. Full review

Victorinox Swiss Army Swiss Champ

This multi-tool is in my EDC bag and goes with me everywhere. No matter what activity you are doing outdoors this little guy can assist you with all your tasks at hand. I give this only 4.5 stars as the 5-star version is the Victorinox SwissChamp XLT 4inch ~priced $250.   left to right      Sharpening rod, Leather Sheath, Swiss Champ   The Victorinox Swiss Army Swiss-Champ multi-tool is the go-to EDC companion. I have had both the USA version and the Switzerland model (merely larger in size)… Full review

Banner & Oak Firebiner

Love this product. I love that it clips right to my bag or belt loop. Love this product. I love that is clips right to my bag or belt loop and is good for multiple things as it is a 5-1 multi-tool. It is lightweight and easy to use. I did remove one star because the way to replace the flint stick is difficult. The screw is tiny and the spring will send it flying into the great unknown. Lucky, I checked it out in my kitchen and was able to locate the screw about 5 minutes after it flew through the… Full review

Leatherman Squirt PS4

The Leatherman Squirt PS4 is my go-to backpacking knife and multi-tool. It has everything you need and nothing you don't. The Leatherman PS4 Squirt is a key-chain sized multitool that comes in at 55g. It took me a few tries to find a multitool that has the perfect balance of utility and size for backpacking. The big sell was having both scissors and pliers. I have used all the tools on this Leatherman out on the trail, whereas I have only used half the tools on my Victorinox Tinkerer Deluxe after… Full review

Victorinox Swiss Army Classic

Best-of-breed ultralight hiking "medkit" knife. Overview: Victorinox are the company who have been producing offiziersmessers (officer knives) since the late 19th century; the original 1890 Model had a blade, can opener, reamer, and a screwdriver (required to disassemble and service the Swiss Schmidt–Rubin rifle). Over the decades Victorinox "Swiss Army Knives" (SAK) have gained a reputation of being some of the most reliable, best-made, useful knives in production. They are a Swiss icon and unlike… Full review

Outdoor Element Firebiner

Well made carabiner with fire wheel that sparked pretty much every time. Also has a sharp cutting tool, bottle cap opener, etc. Enjoyed trying out the fire wheel to get a fire started. With the tinder from Outdoor Element or other homemade ones, we were able to get a fire started in a couple of seconds each time. We got a couple of these for a recent camping trip since I thought they’d be fun to try out with the family. Having never used anything other than a lighter or matches to start a fire,… Full review
