Swiss Army Knife: the fourth generation

For only the fourth time in 117 years a new version of the prestigious Swiss Army Knife has been released.

Seven firms competed for the rights to market the all-in-one survival kit but Victorinox won with "The Soldier". The new knife features a one-hand serrated locking blade, Phillips screwdriver, can opener, small screwdriver, bottle opener, large locking screwdriver, wire stripper, reamer, key ring, and wood saw - oh, and a thingy to get boy scouts out of horses' hooves.

Victorinox: Victorinox will also make the new Soldier's Knife for the Swiss Army
