Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovescatalogs Very nice knife.
It is larger than I expected, but I should have paid more attention to the dimensions listed. I had a much smaller red Swiss Army knife years ago and someone expected it to be similar. It looks well made.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KLinc The MacGyver Knife
This is the model knife that was used most often on the MacGyver TV series. It is solid but simple. The blade holds and edge well yet can be sharpened simply and quickly.
Did I mention that this knife is guaranteed for life by Victorinox? Well, it is.
This is a great "first knife" for any Boy Scout or Camper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Terca Great Quality
My husband loved this as a gift! He says it has good quality materials and good build. I was testing the knife and gave myself a small cut. It looked dull but it's not so don't be like me. I have seen him using the tinker to open and close his routers, cut boxes of things he receives by mail and to open battery cover for christmas toys. I'm very happy because he ruined my eyebrow tweezers and this is the perfect tool to keep him away from my things.
This was a last minute gift. I ordered this item on the thursday before christmas and it arrived on monday Dec 23rd! Right on time to be wrapped. I am very happy with the speed of delivery to NJ.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DavetheCommish Beautiful Swiss Army Knife
A great Swiss Army Knife made in Switzerland. I like this one because it is thinner than most as it only has a few gizmos and gadgets. I use it regularly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lukebill great every day carry knife
my last LL Bean knife lasted me over 30 years and I carried it almost every day of that time. If I have my pants on I have my knife with me. This knife is almost the same as I carried except it is better with the addition of the tweezers and tooth pick. The tooth pick I have already used several times. The only thing this knife does not have that my last one did was a locking big blade. the push thing on the locking blade was something I was always fiddling with when I had my hand on the knife and it was not open. so guess it was a good feature but the two new additions were well worth it. great every day knife. hope this one lasts me another 30 years. just lost my old one somewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tntmoriv Perfect everyday tool
I purchased this as a replacement for a similar model that finally broke (the red handle cracked and finally came off) after 20+ years. It gets carried daily in a pocket, and is used for bicycle repairs, eyeglass repairs, removing slivers, tightening all sorts of screws, and opening cans and bottles. I use the small blade as much as the large, even opening boxes and envelopes when nothing else is handy. The blades hold an edge well, but when they do need to be sharpened it is quick and effective. This new model seems to snap into place with more of a click, although not a lockblade. You won't miss the scissors found in some versions that are thicker. A great everyday pocketknife.

Exactly what I was looking for! Enough, but not too much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by glh56 Tried & True
I've been carrying a Victorinox pocketknife since finding one on a hiking trail in 1981. It is indispensible - perfect for light to moderate unplanned tasks. In fact, I'm more apt to forget my wallet when leaving home than my Swiss Army knife. The Tinker is small (easy to carry) yet offers a variety of handy tools I can access just by reaching into my pocket. I expect to enjoy years of use with my newest acquisition.
The only problem with the one I just purchased (my 6th or 7th in 30 years) is an undersized toothpick "handle" which makes it very difficult to extract - and that is a first. I'm not concerned, however, because I know that the folks at Bean will make it right.
