Pros: Excellent carry knife, everything functions properly. It has two blade sizes which is very handy. Standard and Phillips screwdrivers are also here + additional tools. Not too bulky even though everything is there. It also features a bottle opener, small pick and tweezers. Durable metal construction. Comes in black and red. Great as a gift and very useful to have wherever, at home in the office or the woods. Scout emblem is a nice touch.

Cons: No pouch. No corkscrew.

Victorinox Tinker Boy ScoutThis one goes out to all the boys out there reading. Did you like opening and disassembling things when you were little kids? Sure you did.

What wouldn’t we give for the best multi tool at that age, am I right? Or any multi tool for that matter. I still remember opening up my first toy robot with nothing but a kitchen knife. I couldn’t put it back together for the life of me, and my mother was furious, but it still puts a wide smile on my face when I think about it. Time goes by, and I’ve got my hands on bigger and better tools but a good multi tool never leaves my pocket.

But you aren’t here for my childhood shenanigans, chances are you too tried to open up a toy robot with a kitchen knife but failed, and you’re just googling for a bigger knife. I wouldn’t bet my money on it though. More likely you’re looking for good multi tool reviews to help you out and point you in the right shopping direction.

So, I know what you need but how can I help?

I am so glad you asked. The thing is I’ve dedicated years to blogging and writing this kind of reviews. One would say I truly wished the worst to that toy robot.

Today I am running this website – but my background is the industry as well, I worked in a multi tool factory for years and I’ve been collecting multi tools ever since.

Joking aside, I spent a lot of time learning all about the industry, all the good stuff and the common pitfalls. I loved multi tools my entire life, and it’s living the dream for me writing about them.

So now that you know what a cruddy deal maker I am feel free to continue reading.

No more beating around the proverbial bush, out with some product specifications

I always let the company go first, it gives us some good material to praise or bury later. It also introduces us to the product, so let’s hear it:

The specs:

  • Swiss made
  • Stainless steel/plastic
  • 3.6” long, 0.5” wide, 1” deep
  • Blade length is 3.6”
  • Tools Included: large blade, small blade, small, large and Phillips screwdrivers, can and bottle opener, key ring, reamer, wire stripper, toothpick and tweezers.

Sounds like a sure deal, right? You know what; I don’t really care right now. I don’t do my reviews that way. The only currency in my book is what users have to say about this pocket knife. Wait until we get that part over with and ask me again.

So let’s have the users share some good experiences with us

Now we’re cooking (and not “Breaking Bad” style), let’s see what users have for us.

PROs:

  • I bought this for my son, and he loved it. I tested it out first, and everything works as it should, it’s a nice little gadget
  • It’s an excellent knife for your everyday use. It has so many tools I don’t think there’s a single thing I can’t do with it
  • It’s a good pocket knife (not mini), low profile and not too thick. I can’t say I used tweezers for now but you never know
  • It’s excellent for all activities in the boy scouts, fishing, cooking, hiking…
  • This knife is very well made, has all the tools I need, and I would recommend it to everyone
  • I got the black one, and it looks very luxurious
  • It’s a solid knife for any scout, and I’m glad to see my son getting a cub scout whittling chip and having the same knife as I did so many years ago
  • This is an incredible knife, it takes so much abuse and it’s just rugged and handy
  • It’s the right size and has a good tool mix for any situation
  • I bought this knife for my son after he got his totin chip that allows him to use pocket knives and all other sharp tools. He was out of himself with joy and the scout logo on it really sealed the deal

For better or for worse…Time for some CONs

The moment of truth, let’s dig right in:

  • I wish it had a corkscrew
  • They’ve changed the scout emblem slightly on these new ones…I liked it better the old way…
  • It was a gift for my grandson, and he loves it but I would really want some kind of holster or scabbard for it…

And justice for all, let’s pass the verdict

Now that we have all the information right in front of us I can freely let it out, this is one heck of a pocket knife!

It’s very sturdy and durable, takes a lot of abuse and mistreatment. Has all the tools imaginable except I guess the corkscrew, but a Phillips screwdriver is much more useful anyway. It comes in two colors now, standard red and elegant black. And on top of all that it has a scout emblem on its side, I mean come on.

I really hope I answered some of those questions you’ve been having, good luck with your new pocket knife, and if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a toy robot with my name on it.

See you soon
