Product Description

The American Army has its bunker-busters and fuel-air devices. The British Army has the Challenger 2 on the ground and the Typhoon for air cover. The Swiss Army has the Wenger Giant Swiss Army Knife, a weapon of Mass... umm... Mass... err... A Weapon of Mass. In all our years of lab testing the world's most inventive devices, there's little we haven't seen, haven't destroyed and haven't taken home to try out on our little brothers. And then there came this titan. This behemoth. This ?500 piece of precision Swiss engineering that makes that posh watch of yours look like mere bagatelle. Permit us to explain. The Wenger Giant Swiss Army Knife - note the use of the word 'Giant' - has no fewer than 85 implements capable of performing over 100 separate functions, from scaling fish to fixing bicycles. All of which makes it impossibly useful. Want a laser flashlight? No problem. Torch? Can do. Universal Wrench? Yup. Golf divot repair tool? Si. Double-cut wood saw? Uh-huh. And so it goes. On and on and on and on. There's almost no indoor our outdoor emergency which could not be tackled with this comprehensive if somewhat unwieldy device. But who cares? For even if all it does is sit ceremonially on your mantelpiece next to a bar of Toblerone and a signed photo of Swiss Toni as a tribute to all things Swiss, you will have achieved greatness, my son.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mostly great features. A couple of let-downs. 26 Sep 2013
I'd been looking for a 600 lump of metal to weigh my jeans down for a while. This does the trick perfectly!

A few of the features let it down a little:

The motorbike function gets appalling miles to the gallon.
The quantum teleporter is decidedly inaccurate. I set it for Paris and ended up just south of Chorley.
The trombone needs tuning every time you get it out.
The tent is incomplete and collapsed twice on me last week.
The home brewery kit works, and the beer tastes fine. The wine making kit however, is a little too robust for a merlot.
The satellite dish attachment struggles to connect to the projector.
Changing the volume on the record player is awkward, and the DJ booth isn't nearly big enough to fit more than 3 people in.
The paper shredder can't manage a full book without breaking.
Siri is very unreliable.
The oil dispenser is jammed shut.
The sword is cursed.
And the 12,000 piece jigsaw is missing a piece.

It's also far too easy to get the tools confused. I was going for a small picnic spoon, and accidentally bazooka'd my fruit loops.

And to top it all off, since I updated it to iOS7, it's been running slowly and my cat won't go near it.

Otherwise great!

By James Bury TOP 1000 REVIEWER
On the whole, this is an excellent tool and has helped on many routine tasks around the house, including eavesdropping on GCHQ, performing a minor appendectomy on the dog, and serving as a temporary RSJ when a simple DIY project to remove what I thought was a non-structural wall went awry. It also paid for itself very quickly after I heated it up and inserted it briskly into the rear end of the 100:1 outsider for the 3:15 at Epsom. This was much more successful than my first attempt on the 2:30 when I had neglected to fold away the spiky bits first.

My only criticism is that the battery life is a little disappointing, which means that the night-vision feature only lasts a few hours. This caused no end of trouble the other evening when I was over the Alps in the built-in microlight waiting for permission to land at Geneva. Luckily the hand-cranked generator tool was sufficient to illuminate the (rather basic!) flight instrumentation, and permitted a largely successful landing using the (optional extra) ILS feature.

Overall, it is an excellent all-purpose tool. It is quite heavy and the anti-gravity device is a little temperamental, so it is always worth arming the auto-inflation safety feature if you are in the vicinity of deep water. I would have given it 5* but couldn't find the tool for removing boy scouts from horses' hooves. Incidentally you can quickly recoup the purchase price by using the time-travel feature to enhance your investment decisions.

3.0 out of 5 stars Shame the print isn't bigger 10 July 2012
What caught my eye when perusing the specifications of this product was the promise of an all-purpose wench. Alas, my old eyes were fooled by the small print.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly useful piece of kit! 15 Jan 2014
I was in theatre the other day when the power failed (again!). I got the theatre sister to sterilize the knife and explored some of the options available. Most impressed by the integral self-powering function, but the radiographer didn't look too happy and kept muttering about the rads. What a baby. Used it to perform minimally invasive keyhole prostate removal remotely, really fantastic results. The pathology laboratory tool was somewhat limited (couldn't manage to assess malignancy of the specimen) but ok I suppose if you just want to get blood results or culture and sensitivity. I should mention that it is excellent with the urine specimens we tried, no problems detecting blood, nitrites, glucose etc, so very handy for the home user prone to bladder infections and urosepsis. Xray tool works great but absolutely freaked the radiographer out (what a baby) but we were just playing around with it by now and just wanted to check out how good it was. Ultrasound is perfectly good and is the ECG, even if the printout was a tad blurry. The conventional surgical tools are great and we used it to do the next on the list, an appendectomy. No problems at all. More than satisfied with the tool and the more sophisticated attachments, we started to get ready for lunch when my house officer decided to fiddle with the vacuum tool. Apparently he thought he could use it as a simple suction device. Idiot. The resulting vacuum nearly killed us all. Fortunately when I collapsed unconscious I knocked it to the floor and it shut down. Either that is a fantastic safety consideration or a weak point. I don't really have any use for a perfect vacuum, so I will certainly avoid buggering around with that! Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars brilliant tool; durability issues 15 Dec 2012
this is a great product, but there were some issues...
First problem was delivery. It took the whole of the Swiss army to carry the thing, so I ran out of tea bags before i'd served all 83 of them. fortunately the teabag removal device worked wonders and i soon had it down to a fine art.

My initial impression once they had gone was how brilliantly compact it was. It lives with me in the house during this time of year as the stable is a bit cold, so it swaps with the missus for the winter months. On the plus side, the box doubles up as a convenient holiday home in the south of France, so it's already paying for itself splendidly.

My favourite tool thus far is easily the 2 in 1 eye surgery/dental drill one. to be able to do root canal surgery an eyeball at the same time as placing a contact lens on my upper molar was a definite time saver; none of that pesky waiting around in the waiting rooms of two different surgeries when you own this kit, no sir!

There were a couple of things that I just don't need at all, but really only a couple. I definitely could do without The laser guided smart bomb system, as i find that the trident warheads perform far better anyway. and who needs a knife? Everything else though I couldn't do without. How I coped without the roll out runway complete with LED lighting to land my spaceship on I'll never know. And the gun dog application has been invaluable! to be able to fold out a spaniel when the time comes has made a big difference to finding stuff I have shot with the integral 12 gauge.

I have struggled with the Flux Capacitor though. It seems to only take me back as far as 1985 all the time.
