I served in the Royal Engineers for 25 years. I have used all the multi-tools that have been introduced and their upgrades. If you want the real deal this is it. This will be my 4th - they neglect to mention the hidden feature - it has legs and walks! I have had Gerbers - ouch! They hurt (bite you) and break easily! The Leatherman is a good tool but it also breaks. I have yet to break a Victorinox - hence the lifetime guarantee - Just keep it close! Don't get the one with the serrated knife blade - it is dangerously sharp when new but impossible to sharpen when blunt!

The Swisstoolx ticks all the boxes on the Multi tool heck list for me.

The pliers are substantial and offer both good wire cutting capability and grip.
This version replaces the rescue blade with sissors, which are very practical.

The tools available in this multi tool will be instantly recognisable to anyone who has owned a swiss army knife.
Indeed the rugged construction fit and finish of the parts is what you may expect from a high quality maker like Victorinox. The tools are all acessable from the outside meaning that you do not need to deploy the pliers or "open it up" to get the job done.

Each tool opens individualy with a reassuring snick as the locking mechanism clicks into place, giving you the security that the tool will not fold up on your fingers. One note of Caution here, due to the locking mechanism on the blade, this is Illegal to carry in a public place without "Good Reason", ie you need it to do your job.

The leather case supplied has a velcro (hook and loop) fastening, the belt loop is substantial but fixed for vertical belt carry only.

Overall this Multi Tool is well worth the price and will serve well in many roles.

In my opinion this is one of the best full size or heavy duty multi tools I know. Cons - the handles are a little squared off and can become uncomfortable on the hand during long usage, and the stainless finish may be a little slippery at times. The plier head is smaller than those of some competitor tools, but they work. I would like it if they would open a little wider, had more pointed tips, and possibly a wire cutter made from a harder steel. But those are my only complaints and they are minuscule considering what this tool has to offer: A complete set of some of the best designed tools on the market (can opener, awl/drill, scissors for example), a solid and precise locking mechanism, and great workmanship all around. The tools are accessible from the outside (don't require the pliers to be folded out beforehand). Some people might not like the finger nail grooves to access the tools - they are the same as on any Victorinox and work for me. The leather sheath is ok - mine has a small patch of velcro on the flap which I thought would fail after a while, but I've had the tool for over 7 years now and used it a lot, and it still looks almost new. Overall it's fantastic at a competitive price.

As usual,Victorinox quality shines through. I also own a Leatherman 830685 Charge TTi (directly competing model) which is a beast of a multitool but the Victorinox Swiss Tool X, for me, is in a different league. Both come with a pouch as they are both quite heavy and not really for carrying in pockets.

Points in favor of the Victorinox Swiss Tool X:
- Build quality is superior to the Leatherman. No scraping when opening blades, no sharp or rough edges where there shouldn't be.
- Feels more comfortable in the hand when applying a lot of force.
- Lower carbon steel means that the components are less likely to snap if used incorrectly. Also less likely to rust.

Points in favor of the Leatherman 830685 Charge TTi:
- Has a bit driver and comes with a few popular sized bits. (Victorinox has a fixed Phillips and flat head screwdriver)
- High carbon steel means it will keep an edge longer than stainless steel but will need to be kept dry and clean to avoid corrosion.
- One-handed blade opening

Personally I prefer the Victorinox, but it depends on what you want the tool for and how you'll be using it.

Neither are street legal in the UK due to the blade locking mechanisms used in both. If you are carrying this in public make sure you have a legitimate reason.

Excellent tool - but it is illegal to carry it in the UK - the lock mechanism on the knife blade renders it illegal - still a good tool - but potentially trouble if circumstances involve any involvement with the long arm of the law

One of the best multi tools I've ever owned, it's like a rolls roys of multi tools, very classy,well engineered,tough,beefy pliers that will unbolt rusted bolts on Titanic.
There is no point reviewing each tool,they all work and does the job well, Victorinox know what they doing when it comes to multi tools, highly recommended.

Not UK carry friendly due to locking blade but I don't care, I will have it in my car's glove box and use it in case of a brake down.

I own Multi tools from Leatherman,Gerber,and Victorinox.This is the best i own,it's a hefty beast but it offers a reassuring precision in it's fit and finish.Best pliers of any multi tool,and pretty much the most useful tool selection you're going to find on any tool like this.
All multi tools do the same kind of things,this one does them all that bit better.

It's a beautiful piece of engineering. Excellent value for money too.

I'm a previous owner of two Leatherman Waves. Both stolen, 10 years apart. The second one was nowhere near as good quality as my first one so I thought I would give Victorinox a go. It really is a better bit of kit. Very pleased.

Received this product very quickly from Amazon. I bought this by using amazon gift vouchers giving to me at Xmas by my family and I wanted something that I would have for long time and that would remind me of their generosity. Although a wee bit expensive and after looking at many reviews for similar products, I chose this multitool. The build quality is excellent and it is totally functional and I rarely leave home without it on my person or in my kit bag. All the tools on this are so well made it is 100percent worth the money.
