Stuck for a Christmas gift idea for the yachtie in your life? Victorinox, manufacturers of the original Swiss Army knife, solves that problem with two different and very versatile sailing knives.
Recently released is the new Navy Camouflage Collection with 3 different options of a small, medium and large pocket knife in a navy camouflage look. With these knives one will be able to tackle any situation.
The small knife comes with a blade; nail file; screwdriver; scissors; key ring; tweezers and toothpick.
The medium model comes with two blades – and large one and a small one; corkscrew; can opener; small screwdriver; wire stripper; reamer/punch; key ring; tweezers; toothpick; scissors; multipurpose hook and a wood saw.
The large knife in this series has, in addition to all the options in the medium knife, a lock blade plus pliers; wire cutters; wire crimping tool; phillips screwdriver; lanyard; shackle opener and a marlin spike.
The skipper PRO knife has been around for some years now, but has recently been updated – with it’s advertising ‘blurb’ stating that it is like “a full ship’s crew in your hand”!
This is a compact tool that combines typical Victorinox functionality with a lock blade for one hand use as well as a sailing-specific tool for nautical adventures – that being a lockable and very robust marlin spike. Plus it comes complete with a bright orange lanyard.
Tools on this knife include: lock blade with 2/3 wavy edge for one hand use; can opener with small screwdriver; lockable bottle opener with screwdriver and wire stripper; reamer/punch/ key ring; tweezers; toothpick; lockable marlin spike and a lanyard.
