How to choose a Victorinox knife
Choose according to the scene you use
First of all, it is important to clarify the scene where the knife is used. There are three sizes, small, medium, and large, and if you want more compactness and portability, you can choose the Swiss card. Depending on the usage scene, how to carry it, such as whether to put it in your pocket or your bag, and the functions you want will differ. When choosing a swiss army knife, be clear about what you want to use in what scene.
Choose with the tool you want
Once you know the scene you want to use, you should know what tools you need. Choose a model with the tools you want. Victorinox’s Swiss Army knife is also characterized by its many tools. If you take a closer look, you’ll want this and that, but you have to figure out if it’s the tool you’re using. As the number of tools increases, so do the price and weight. It is a disadvantage to increase the price and weight that you do not need, so let’s calmly determine.
