I researched the different types of army knives and decided to buy this one as a christmas gift for my husband. It's brilliant and has a great range of tools. The price is excellent as they're really expensive everywhere else. It's just a shame that I couldn't buy one in a gift box, but otherwise a great buy!
Bought for my young lad as a "penknife for life". Excellent piece of engineering. Only marked down by a star as the plastic magnifing lense isn't as sturdy as it could have been if it was metal framed.
The Explorer is my favourite Swiss Army knife as it has all the tools I want, especially the magnifying glass. The one bug bear I have with Victorinox knives is that the spring on the scissors breaks after a couple of years of use, I would hope they would last a bit longer for the price of the knife. New springs can be bought, but I have no success in making them stay in place.
Purchased for my husband. A very useful knife. Even the magnifying glass came in handy within the first week of using the knife. Lots of useful tools and all in a handy size that will not split your pocket!
