Victorinox Huntsman Review
You’ll find two blades on this Swiss army knife. One that you can use for simple and sanitary tasks, and another that you can for heavy duty and general tasks like whittling. With two separate blades, you may want to consider using the larger one for culinary use, as it makes easy work of things like spreading butter, jellies and jams.
For bushcraft projects, it doesn’t get any better than the included saw blade. However, don’t mistake the small size for a small appetite, this saw is quite the monster! Think Silky Saw but in an extremely compact form. It’s impressive and it lasts! Outside of the outdoors, the saw comes in handy for household projects such as cutting through plastics, piping, and lumber and so on.
Included scissors make easy work for trimming through blister packs, tacking personal grooming, and cutting away lose threads from clothing.
The multipurpose hook will assist you with moving hot pots and pulling oven racks away from the campfire. You can use it to lug around heavy objects with tiny handles too. Of course, you are only limited to your own imagination.
Other tools include a can opener, 3mm and 6mm screwdrivers, bottle opener, wire strippers, reamer, punch and sewing awl, corkscrew, toothpick, tweezer and key ring.
No matter what the problem at hand, chances are the Huntsman can handle it with its 15 included functions. It’s a good reason as to why the Victorinox Huntsman goes wherever I go.
