Good collection of blades and tools for most needs

The serrated blades cut better than straight blades (but watch your fingers!)

I chose this rating because the shipping was ridiculously fast and it is exactly like how it is in the picture shown with a nice box.

The friend that received this gift from me said that the blade even though it isn't the longest or biggest blade, its actually a very durable, sharp and strong blade... he uses it everyday for everyday things and it comes in handy at work also.

I would recommend this to anybody and everybody... It's a good price too!

I have owned one of these knives in the past, and I have found that I can't do without one. It's an excellent knife that will give you years of use.

Quality General Purpose Knife Oct. 19 2005
By Lonnie E. Holder - Published on Amazon.com
I carry at least one Swiss Army Knife with me every where I go (except a plane, of course). This 3 1/2 inch all-purpose tool is suitable for your pocket, glove compartment or tool box. This knife has dozens of uses for a do-it-yourselfer, a gardener or a camper.

This little wonder has a large and small knife, a corkscrew, a punch, a can opener with a flat blade screwdrive on the end, a bottle opener with a flat blade screwdriver on the end and what purports to be a wire stripper on the side (I have never used that), a key ring, tweezers and a toothpick. This knife is water resistant and made of high quality components.

I tend to use the knives on the pocket knife more than any other tools. After that I find that the combination of one of the knives and the tweezers are useful for splinters and thorns, and thus the tweezers often become the third most useful tool. I must admit that occasionally I use the toothpick, particularly when real toothpicks are not available.

The smaller screwdriver blade is small enough that it can also fit into a Phillips head screw. I have even been able to use the flat blade on some small internal hex head screws. I have never used the corkscrew, and I have used the punch as an awl. The can opener blade has yet to be used on this knife as well.

The difficulty with carrying tools is that they can fill your pocket very quickly. This small Swiss Army knife is small enough to fit into a purse or a pocket and yet large enough to be useful. While the larger Swiss Army knives have even more and larger tools and blades, they are also harder to carry. Of course this particular knife will not replace a tool box, but I find it amazing how many tasks I can accomplish with the simple tools available in this gem.

The original and still the best Nov. 3 2006
By S. W. Aboelela - Published on Amazon.com
I received this knife as a gift from a Swiss business associate back in 1998, and have carried it nearly every day since. I have to say that I am truly impressed with the amount of abuse this little tool can stand up to as it's been dropped countless times and overtorqued more often than I care to admit, but has never failed to spring back open ready for the next task.

I can't tell you how many times a friend has brought a bottle of wine to a picnic or some remote location only to suddenly come to the panicked realization that he/she forgot the corkscrew. You wouldn't believe the gratitude as they hear the cork being removed by the unassuming little corkscrew on this knife.

One small tip: sharpen the blades from time to time. A minute on a standard cutlery sharpening steel is all it takes to have these little blades ready for some serious work.

A piece of history! April 10 2009
By Chronoserpent - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I collect Victorinox Swiss Army knives, and I bought the Spartan for my collection. The Spartan is the direct descendant of the original "Swiss Officer's Knife" that Karl Elsener invented in 1897, derived from his earlier 1891 design for his Swiss Soldier's knife (which is represented today by the alox Soldier model).

All of the tools on the Spartan are well thought out and very effective.
1. Large and Small blades: Comes extremely sharp. Large blade is great for general cutting tasks, and is big enough to easily peel fruit. The small blade is great for smaller tasks like opening envelopes. I like to rely on the large blade and keep the small blade extremely sharp in case I ever need a really precise cut.
2. Can opener/small screwdriver: Opens cans. Also works in most Philips head screws.
3. Large screwdriver, bottle opener, wire stripper: The screwdriver and bottle opener work well. You can also use the screwdriver blade for some light prying, such as removing staples. The wire stripper does work, but isn't very effective and I would never use it over a dedicated wire stripper.
4. Corkscrew: Removes corks. If you get creative, you can find other uses for it like using the tip as kind of a marlinspike for untying small knots and pulling cotton out of medicine bottles. You can also buy a small eyeglass screwdriver that fits inside the corkscrew.
5. Awl: I find it awkward to use because of its placement on the back. But is is very sharp and will punch through leather well. Use a twisting motion so you're "drilling" and not just pushing through. It also has a pretty sharp edge so I use it to cut tape and open boxes when I don't want my blades to get encrusted with glue residue. I prefer the awl on the Soldier for punching holes.
6. Tweezers: Good for removing splinters and picking up small objects.
7. Toothpick: Works well in its intended job. I've also used it to point out small locations on a map.

The Spartan is very useful, and I love it for its historical significance. However, for everyday use I would recommend either the Victorinox Swiss Army Super Tinker Pocket Tool or Victorinox Swiss Army Executive Pocket Knife. The Super Tinker adds large scissors (very handy for cutting paper, clipping coupons, etc.) and has a Philips screwdriver instead of the corkscrew. The executive offers a variety of useful tools in a smaller package than the Spartan. There are many Victorinox Swiss Army knives out there, so do some through research and find the one that is best for your needs!

Love It June 26 2012
By Konrad Haskins - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
What can one say it's a high quality classic. For me a corkscrew is a must. I wanted relatively small and slim for jean pockets and this fits the bill. I know I'm the odd bird but I prefer my Victorinox with with other than red plastic sides as the red plastic has failed me in the past. I love the hard green checkered plastic of the German Army model and the solid metal sides. This wood finish is classic and I love it.

An Old Friend Renewed Sept. 10 2006
By Jack E. Leonard - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have carried a Spartan since I got one as an anniversary present in 1967. Some I have lost, a few I gave to friends, and one I vaporized a screwdriver blade by a stupid action I won't describe here.

But none has ever given me trouble and I keep coming back to get one. The combination of two screwdrivers, a canopener, corkscrew and awl (plus two blades: I keep the small one very sharp for fine work and the larger one is used on routine jobs) is great and since they added a toothpick and tweezers I have found those helpful too.

Once again I have mislaid my friend on a job, so it is time for my next Spartan.
