Looking for a neat gift to give? I suggest a type of knife that almost everyone needs...
See...they were within reach, and my abdomen was growling with hunger. Cans of tuna. Ready to be opened and eaten. But...not a working can opener to be found. I have two P-38s but, as I have been couch-surfing for many years, couldn't find them in my belongings. In desperation, I thought I might be able to use my pocketknife to open the can...and found I can do so: and I had forgotten it's not just "any old pocketknife"!
After doing some research, I've found that the model I own was probably the "Soldier Knife model 1961" that has a blade, a combined bottle-opener/screwdriver/wire-stripper (I never knew about the wire-stripper), a combined can-opener and small screwdriver, and a reamer.
It seems that the new product descriptions for this model are:
the Pioneer (Item Number: 53960, http://www.swissarmy.com/us/product/Swiss-Army-Knives/Category/Everyday-Use/Pioneer/53960 and http://www.victorinox.com/us/product/Swiss-Army-Knives/Category/Everyday-Use/Pioneer/53960)
and the Standard Issue (Item No: 16520, http://www.wengerna.com/standard-issue-16520).
I must tell you about the Giant Knife (Item No: 16999) that has 87 Implements, and 141 Functions.
Dear Swiss Army people,
I want one just so I can record videos of me using every tool on in it.
