Pros: Superior quality of materials used, this tool will probably be something to leave to your son. Durable, sturdy but still great to look at. Sharp chisel, firm grip, great variety of tool. Made in Switzerland, not overseas. They did not cut any corners when it comes to quality with this baby.

Cons: The price is a bit steep, but as far as I am concerned if you are buying something that will probably outlive you, a few extra bucks have little or no meaning.

Now this is what I call a multi tool.

I have it in my collection and if I was to choose one thing that I would take to an abandoned island, it would be this tool.

Orrr, hold on, maybe a picture of my family.

Wait, nope, I would take Victorinox Spirit Plus Ratchet. I would surely get some “heat” if my wife saw I said this, so hush…

If you are trying to decide if this is the tool you want, my friend, you’ve come to the right place. This website contains every last bit of information you will ever need to be calm and relaxed decision.

But who am I to write reviews of multi tools?

This website is the ultimate tool for choosing a multi tool for two reasons:

  1. I don’t just collect the reviews already out there, I actually go out and try to contact the people actually using the product, which is even easier in this case because I own one of these babies.
  2. I’ve worked in a multi tool factory for 20 years and I know the industry inside out – think of me as an insider.

First of all, this is one of the most magnificent and sexiest multi tools on the market. Period.

PROS as per the end users:

Victorinox Swiss Army Spirit Mutitool image

  • Much lighter than the old model, since I received it, I never leave home without it…ordering a second one just to have one in my truck at all times, just in case I forget it…
  • I like the fit and the grip of this tool…
  • I pretty much everything about this tool…
  • The ratchet is great and very useful…
  • I am in my mid 30s and I have the feeling that my grand kids will be using this tool…
  • Wonderfully built, polished and shinny, real eye candy…
  • I was surprised by hoe useful the chisel was for scraping wire, really sharp and efficient…
  • Just the right amount of tools one would need for most of the jobs you will ever stumble upon…
  • I am not a big fan of belt cases but I really like this one, really stiff and practical with separate compartments for every addition this tool comes with…
  • I own half a dozen of multi tools, Leathermans, Gerbers…this multitool is by far the best I own, it almost seems kind of a waste having those other ones because I use this tool for most of my work…
  • The word that comes to mind when you look at the design at this tool is “sexy”…
  • …now I have three of these babies. I leave one in my weekend cottage and I carry one on my bike at all times…
  • Best money I ever spent…
  • This is the most magnificent tool I have ever seen, used or owned and I am a handyman…all the others fade in comparison to this…
  • I almost look forward for something breaking around my house so that I can use this amazing tool…
  • It will sound weird but I have to comment on how detailed the guide that comes with it is…an 8 year old would know how to use it in 10 minutes…a good example of how detailed and precise it is – shows you the exact five areas to oil after dropping it in water…imagine that much attention to detail with the guide and you will get a good idea about how well-made the tool itself is…
  • The blades open easily and snap securely back into place…
  • I am amazed at how sharp the saw blade is every time I use it…
  • Without going to detail I will only say that I give this tool a solid 5 star review and highly recommend it…
  • Once this tool is your hands you will forget that few extra bucks you spent on it…
  • Once you try anything from this company, you will forget any other brand…I have been carrying my old Swiss knife for 40 years and now I have this new baby…I can almost say I am in love with it, weird but true…

CONS as per the end users:

  • The reasons I am giving this tool 4 stars is that it doesn’t have every tool I need…
  • The ratchet needs getting used to…
  • Pricey for my budget…

My review resume:

Overall_Quality_rating_Victorinox_Swiss_Army_Spirit
A score of 48 out of 50 in the Overall Quality Rating is one of the best I’ve ever given. I think that I have never given a 49 or a Whammy (that’s what I call a 50 out of 50).

But sincerely, I don’t see any Whammy rating coming my way any time soon, simply because if you want the tool made this well, you will need to spend a bit more.

But, let me tell you this – I’ve worked in a multi tool factory and I know the materials and I know the spaces for the company to cut corners and reduce cost and I have not seen any of that in this tool.

I have gone through dozens of multi tools in my lifetime and some of them were in the trash within months. I am confident when I say that this tool is built to last a lifetime and that is why they don’t have problems backing it up with a lifetime guarantee.

Among the top 3 multi tools on the market today.

No-brainer 5 stars for this baby.
