Even if you say an army knife in a word, the required functions will differ depending on where you use it (situation). For example, if you use it outdoors, such as camping, features such as blades and saws will be helpful. On the other hand, if you use it for repair or maintenance in the garage, you need a tool like a screwdriver.

Some swiss army knives include precision tools in the set that are used for assembling and repairing PCs. When choosing an army knife, be aware of what situations you are likely to use and how you will use it, and you will be able to see what features you need.

Precautions when carrying an army knife

It’s a handy army knife in case of emergency, but be careful when carrying it outside. Carrying knives of 8 cm or more is regulated by the Firearms and Swords Law, but in fact, knives smaller than that are also regulated by the Minor Crimes Law.

In the Minor Crimes Act, “a person who has hidden and carried a knife, horizontal bar, or another device that is used to harm a person’s life or cause serious harm to a person’s body without a justifiable reason.” There is a provision that “detention or fines will be imposed,” so if you carry a knife regardless of the size of the blade, you may be arrested. So don’t carelessly carry your swiss army knife outdoors.
