great first pocket knife as it doesn't have a stupid corkscrew or a reamer (which no one wants), for the price of a mini one with much fewer features. only one downside is a lack of scissors but these are rarely needed as the 2 blades make up for it easily. one thing is that this is a perfect present for a student possibly attending university, and that the stigma attached to knifes should be ignored.

Light, easy to handle, awesome quality swiss made, easy to clean and maintain so that makes perfect knife for food preparation outdoors, it has a good grip since no unnecessary tools will get in your way.
Even its just a 2 layer knife from the 84mm range (smaller than the normal 91mm spartan for example) its still action packed with tools and very friendly to first time users with the price and handling.
the main blade is just 5mm shorter than on the 91mm knifes, but still big enough to do the same duty as bigger knifes.
The only downside of it is that its almost impossible to get a belt pouch for it.
The best pouch i found (not for belt carry tho) is this one Victorinox Leather Pouch - Black its made to fit both this 84mm knife and any classic range 58mm knife.
Ideal for 1st time victorinox users, outdoors, camping, field or home kitchen and many more uses, simply a great pocket knife.
You will not get a better price as here, such a high quality Swiss made product for just a tenner.
And of course it is UK carry legal, NON-locking with blades under 3"
the main blade is about 2.5" and the small one is 1.5"

I needed this for opening hay bales and general horsey bits and bobs around the yard. Very pleased with it. Would buy another if I needed to and I highly recommend it. Size is good, good range of blades, sturdy construction. Only thing preventing a 5 star review is the nail notches for opening the blades are always too small and my nails break. But this is the same for all pocket knives I find. So maybe a 4 star is a bit harsh?

Very pleased overall.

Build
This is wonderful knife and really solid. I own three Victorinox knives of different models, a small one that my wife uses on her key ring, and a larger one I keep in my backpack. This one is just the right weight and size for day to day use.

Carrying Around
I keep on my key ring with my car keys and probably the biggest knife of the series that you'd want to carry on a key-ring. The good thing with the keyring holder on this knife (unlike some of the other models), is that the keyring loop is opposite the longer knife, which makes it easier to use the knife when it's still on you keyring, why the other models have the loop at the joint of the main knife sort of confuses me and is slightly thoughtless in design. I guess I'd have preferred the bottle opener at the same side as the main knife as well for the same reason, as I'd guess for most people these are the most used tools on the knife.

Blades and Tools
Blades are really sharp out of the box, although if you're into sharpening then I've no doubt you could get it honed like a samurai sword. But for the manly purposes of cutting up your apple and oranges, and opening boxes, I find it perfect!
The bottle opener is a excellent, and amazingly, so are the screw drivers on the ends. And, I have opened a can with the can opener and it works (and it is a little work), like a charm.

Here is a positive and negative at the same time. You only get the tweezers and toothpick on the plastic handled knives, which is great, and they are useful. BUT. The handles do scratch up quickly and look a mess. For vanity purposes, I've actually put some cellotape down each side to minimise that.

I bought this knife primarily for every day carry, though I also carry the smaller, but more complex MiniChamp knife. But unlike my MiniChamp this comes with a longer and wider blade, which will be perfect for cutting apples etc. The smaller blade on the MiniChamp can work it out, however the Recruit is just better for the task.

I noticed that this knife is very light - almost too light. A low weight is good for pocket carrying (you simply cannot feel the knife in your pocket). But it can also hit the spot where it feels a bit like a toy. I am not saying that it can't live up to its tasks, it is sturdy and will last quite a few years, nevertheless it could easily be a bit heavier.

I think this knife is made to make a bridge between the small 58 mm knives and then the bigger knives (up to the big lock-blade knives).

Buy this if you need a light, but reliable tool with you everyday. It is a fine knife, and for the price it is almost a no-brainer. I also bought this knife just to have it. And for the price - well, if you have an extra 13 pounds to spend on fun - buy it. Have fun with it and buy a new one in 10 years.

Plenty of functions on this basic knife that my adult son wanted. Slim enough to slip into any pocket with blades small enough not to be too dangerous. I was tempted to buy one that was more sophisticated, thinking this model would be too basic, but unless the other add-ons are needed & are going to be used there is no point. My Son was very pleased with this.
