5.0 out of 5 stars Very good keyring sized penknife. small but tough., 25 Aug. 2009
By 
This is the minature little brother of the famous Swisschamp knife, measuring just 58mm long. You get the same tools you get on the other minature Victorinox penknives, a small blade, minature scissors, and a nail file/nail cleaner. Plus several additional ones, including a small phillips screwdriver & bottle opener, a small flat screwdriver plus ruler, and a letter opening blade, and a orange peeler aznd a cuticle pusher plus a flip out pen.

Firstly, although the two knives on this are small, they are of very high quality, extremely sharp and durable and surprisingly useful. The same can be said of the scissors, which, although tiny, are surprisingly tough and can easilly cut through thick cardboard, and plastic packaging. The small phillips screwdriver works well for small screws, although I have not used the bottle opener, and the flathead screwdriver can be used for larger screws, (phillips and flathead) but I would not like to use it on very tough screws, as I'm afraid of bending it.

I have had no cause to use the cuticle pusher, (although it has come in handy as a scraping tool, for scraping stickers off windows etc) and have only used the orange peeler once, it seems to work ok. The ruler on the side of the screwdriver is only 3.5cm, and so of little use, unless as a last resort if it is the only ruler available.

You get a slot in the handle for either the toothpick or tweezers, (both come with this) but you can't have both at the same time, as on the other handle there is a pop-out ballpoint pen. In a way I miss having both toothpick and tweezers, however the pen has often come in handy, so probably compensates.

All in all this is a very good package for something so small, probably one of the best keyring sized multitools, although some of the leatherman ones give it a good run for it's money. I get the impression this one is aimed at the female market, so could be a good present for wives or girlfriends. Although still sufficiently blokey for a man to own.

Reccomended.
