Select by the number of tools

The most important thing about Victorinox is the number of tools it has. Choose the number of tools that Victorinox comes with to suit your purpose and taste. Here, we will introduce how to select by the number of tools.


For the number of tools that are easy to carry, “around 15 to 30 types” is recommended

Choose Victorinox 06, Shieldon

For those who are easy to carry and do not need too many functions, we recommend around “15 types” of tools. With more than 30 tools, you’ll find models with pliers, scales, files, compasses, and more.


For those who want to purchase a compact size Victorinox, we recommend around “30 types” of tools.


If the maximum number of tools is good, “80 types” is recommended

Choose Victorinox 07, Shieldon

The one with the most tools in Victorinox has models with more than “80 types” of functions. When it comes to models with “80 types” of functions, they are equipped with tools that exceed the level of the tool box, such as Torx bits and LED lights.


It’s about the size of a man’s big fist, but it’s so functional that you won’t have to worry about it. However, it is heavy and bulky to carry, so it is necessary to choose according to the application.


“Knife only” is recommended if the minimum required


For those who only need a knife, we recommend Victorinox, which is a “knife only”. Victorinox has a high reputation for the quality of knives, so you can fully feel its charm even with “knife only”.
