Victorinox, the company that introduced the original Swiss Army knife in 1897, invigorates a new generation of adventurous craftsmen with its 53800 SwissTool Spirit. The user-friendly multitool measures a mere 3-1/4 inches in length yet offers approximately 25 clever and convenient functions. Among the essential features for the casual camper are bottle and can openers; 2, 3, and 6 mm screwdrivers; and traditional cutting blades and scissors. However, it never hurts to be prepared, and more specialized users will no doubt appreciate the needle-nose pliers, wire cutter, chisel/scraper, wire bender, wire stripper, and crate opener. Whether you're a carpenter looking for a handy, compact tool for the job site or a cyclist who believes in vigilance, the SwissTool Spirit multitool is a must.
The tool is made of 100 percent stainless steel, with a pair of durable plier handles that fold up neatly when not in use. Many of the arms open from the outside without disturbing the handles, adding to the tool's accessibility. The tools are controlled by a series of springs that hold the arms securely in place when open or closed. The SwissTool Spirit even includes a lanyard hole for hanging around the neck (it weighs only 5-3/4 ounces), or, alternately, users can store it in the included leather case. The tool carries a lifetime warranty against defects in material and workmanship.
