If you look in the red scale at the base of the corkscrew there is a tiny hole that a sewing needle fits perfectly in.

I was have red huntsman. But i was lost. My country have one victorinox store and this is very hard. My mom was go travel to georgia (country) and i said buy new huntsman or climber. She bought red ranger. But this is good too

Switzerland is in Western Europe. Almost the archetype Western nation.

Victorinox pocket knives not traditionally multitools. Those are pliers-based. But for younger generations perhaps the word multitool is changing.

The pocket knife pliers on some models are more super tweezers, or finger tip extensions. They are not meant to be the same as a multitool pliers.

Chisel on the back. No prying devices whatsoever on this, or most any Victorinox until you get to their multitools.

Vic files are excellent. Can cut most nails and screws.

A Ranger and a basic drop-forged slip-joint pliers (a dollar or two used at flea market or house sale) is still lighter than a big multitool. Or a mini Vise-Grip even better.

My only complaint is that I cannot get the hook out. But then again, I almost never need to.

The awl I learned about as a kid. Open the corkscrew first–might help. But they are a bit easier with useage. And VERY effective.

Anyway, this model is the best compromise between too few tools, and the way too bulky Swiss Champ. For a basic tool set, cannot beat the Vic Pioneer in Alox (was issued to Swiss soldiers for about 40 years). Thicker knife, stronger backsprings, and awl comes out the end. Models available with scissors, and with saw. The Ranger is not going to disappoint any serious knife kid, even those past 60.

Never even touched a lock blade until after age 60. Weren’t any around when I was a kid, or that we ever heard of, aside from illegal Italian knives. Even the Buck was still to come, and far away in America and hard to get in my country then. I cut myself more with lock blades than old fashioned slips joints! All that one-handed opening and closing.

Rambling is ok! We want to know both objective facts, and a reviewer’s personal take on a knife. Do some long-term reviews, and small project demos on Vic knives.

Thanks for the review… thumbs up!

Pretty neat set of tools, and the victorinox saw is great! Would prefer a the phillips screwdriver from the tinker over the corkscrew. My current edc is the standard size tinker, does most things i need it to do, and in combination with that i bring some small tongue and groove pliers as i find the Leatherman (wave in my case) always comes short in gripping what i need it to grip.

No one says terribly tactical has a small sak!
