What Is The Best Swiss Army Knife To Buy

I often get asked what is the best Swiss Army knife to buy, and my answer is always the same: the Victorinox Alox Pioneer X. The reason it’s the best is simple. The Victorinox Alox Pioneer X has the best combination of tools and blades for real-world use. It’s also compact, easy to carry, and built to last a lifetime.

CRKT Kuk Review

We test out the CRKT tactical kukri and decide if it’s worth the asking price. It’s a crowded field with many options.

Prandi German Style Hatchet Review

The Prandi German Style Hatchet is one of my all-around favorites.

It’s a versatile hatchet with some solid heft to it, which makes it a go-to for heavy-duty chopping and splitting. If you have a job to do that really requires an axe, but you don’t happen to have an axe handy, the Prandi German Style Hatchet is a good tool to reach for.

Coast G19 Flashlight Review

The Coast G19 Flashlight is a very simple thing, and I like it. This flashlight does one job, and it does it well: it casts a crisp, clear inspection beam with consistent edge-to-edge brightness.

In all fairness, I don’t think multitools are bad by any means; it’s just that you always have to give something up in exchange for convenience. But, the Gerber Gear MP600 is a rugged workhorse that brings some solid functionality to a genre of tools that are too often plagued by useless features.
