Victorinox Huntsman Knife review
I used the can opener in my Tinker to pry open a car key, it is good for situations where you don’t want a blade to cut cut things.
I have been using my huntsman for over 25 years. good knife
You rather use the edge of a table to open a bottle? That’s just stupid…
These are meant as a tool to help u everyday or in the bush not as a weopon or for what u already have its in yer pocket and has all the necessitys u need
Who gives a shit a white mans English, you still understand what I said . Dog.
open the can other way round is easyer try it
Does it have a safety?
Sometimes those rarely used functions come to the rescue and that makes the utility of a multifunction knife really handy.
The saw is really meant for notching and cutting small diameter pieces. It’s not meant for sawing through limbs.
I have the Camper and I use a lot of the tools, but agree with you on some of them as not being needed!
There are also small Vics with a locking blade.
There is for example the EvoGrip S17, which is very similar to the huntsman, but has a locking blade. (formerly it was Wenger)
The problem is that if the blade or saw locked it wouldn’t be legal to carry in many places.
I love your visual examples you give with the knife, very helpful.
Does it cut down trees?
LOL, you obviously don’t smoke weed or drink….
I’m a Leatherman guy, but I always keep my Victorinox classic in my pocket. Good luck charm
Great video! I have the victorinox handyman myself. It’s basically the same knive but with pliers.
Say Heah Denis, I think you will like and do a video on the Bokor Tech Tool, the 4, City 2.8in. Yeah, its made in the 12c27, Yeah, A lovely piece of kit, yeah, the City means the Black instead of the Green, I think.,,.
if you dont use the tools why do you have that knife just saying
i remember once the blade colsed on my finger, blood all over, yet not a single tear+a cool scar.
it’s just unbelievable how many SAK owners don’t drink wine.
He don’t know anything about knives.
I’ve had a Recruit for a while, and I’ve been looking for an SAK with more capabilities that would still be comfortable to carry in a jeans pocket. I picked up the Huntsman yesterday based on your review. I love it so far. Great review of a great knife!
that’s why you get Fieldmaster it has screwdriver not a wine opener
I have this knife for 5 years now and I carry it every single day on a clip i bought with it. I think about buying bundeswehr one for some trips but i probably dont even need it. It is just addiction.. Victorinox addiction, everybody who has Vic has to fall in love with it.
The Huntsman is a “outdoor” SAK. There is a very similar model named The Explorer that has basically the same toolset, but instead of a saw it has a Phillips head screwdriver and a magnifying glass. I think the explorer is the “urban” version of the Huntsman. Great video!
Good review. All the tools are handy if you need one and this all you have! I have one of these, thought it was a climber at first because I didn’t realise it had the saw (inherited it from Dad when he passed) bloody great little knife. I carry it as my ‘urban’ EDC now and use it all the time. I cut my fruit and lunch with the larger blade and use the small blade for opening boxes etc. at work. I also bought a Rucksack (prior to realising this knife had the saw) as my “wilderness” EDC for camping, hiking and so on because of the larger locking blade and saw. It lives in my pack and this one in my pocket.
the same knife but replace the cork screw with a Phillips screwdriver is my 2nd favorite SAK knife…. the Field Master, prefer in yellow with Gadsden flag/motto. The 2016 Wounded Warrior Field Master Stars/Stripes will be this years purchase for sure.
what is my favorite, the discontinued Harvester, Alox model, has the saw, awl, large screw driver/bottle opener, large blade. but why my fav, the small blade is replaced with the Pruner blade. If they were to put this blade on the Field Master (replace small blade) that would be my ideal knife. A real working tool set with scissors, or alternative bring back the Harvester and add scissors…. either way I be happy.
what a hater man! all the stuff in there is worth having and will be super worth having in a survival scenerio awl for striking your ferro rod and bottle opener for your beers and cork screw for opening the wine for your chick and don’t be looking around everywhere like and idiot
Der Vorteil der der nichtaritierbaren Klinge ist die Verwendung als EDC, da in Deutschland das Tragen von Messern mit verriegelbarer klinge und/ODER Einhandfunktion nicht gestattet ist (i.d.R.). Hatte vorher immer ein Ranger von wenger (kein Einhand, unter 12cm, aritierbar) und es gab schon einige Probleme damit, sodass ich jetzt aufs Huntsman umgestiegen bin (zum Leid der Finger) :/
I personally like victorinox much better than letherman based on reliability alone just saying and the reason none of these features lock into place is because if you have a blade or saw locked into place it’s classed as a dangerous weapon which is good as they are allowed to go on scouts trips with and also if you have it in public then the police will usually just causion you wereas if you have a locked blade you will get taken to the police station.
Ofcourse you didn’t use those tools yet. You said the knife was just new!
i cut my thumb really badly on that small blade
Has anyone tried starting a fire with the SAK magnifying glass?
I’m gonna get one with a hardwood handle
Once cut myself with the can opener
