    I have a couple of them:

    console in the vehicle; toolbox; gig bag; and keychain.

    They're very handy.

    Carried them for a long time , but I kept breaking the plastic handles , so I gave up . My preference is for the Wengers because I like their scissors spring mechanism better than the Victorinox . Ok , here we go on this subject . Who here is aware of the fact that there are left handed Swiss Army Knives ? This is a real thing . Certain things like the scissors are made for a lefty . The best part is the corkscrews . They are lefty . Yes , they turn the other way . I always loved handing my knife to some unknowing righty to pull a cork . Dark fun indeed .

    Haha. I didn't know that.

    The last time I bought a Swiss Army knife (a tiny Rally that I mentioned earlier), one of my primary specifications was "no corkscrew". I'd rather punch the cork into the bottle with a dirty stick than use one of those again. :)

    I've got a blue one with the Star of David on the handle. Someone once asked me... Are you Jewish? No I replied, I'm David.

    Forgot I had this guy, waiting for new scales. I think I planned to make some..

    The originals had a cool pen that just slid partway out of the knife, letting you use the rest of the knife as the handle. 20201206_072700.jpg

    Everytime I see a thread like this, I think of my Cub Scouts/Boy Scouts days and how a pocketknife was the COOLEST thing on the planet! I remember buying the actual BSA logo/licensed one.

    The only Swiss Army knife I have ever owned was a really small one, but it still had scissors, tweezers, toothpick. Too cool!

    Now I have NO pocketknife of any kind- but may have to go to Amazon...
