If you are looking for the most tools packed into one device, look no farther than the Victorinox Swiss tool. Equipped with 37 different tools, this multi-tool is in a league of its’ own when it comes to who has more tools. Not to mention, this is a product of Swiss Army Tools, which is the pioneer in multi-tools. A lot of people turn straight to Leatherman products when it comes to multi-tools, but the Victorinox definitely should not be discounted in consideration for purchase. This is a quality product that many find superior to Leatherman products.
The stainless steel used in the Victorinox is of superior quality compared to its Leatherman/Gerber competitors. (Read about Leatherman Vs Gerber here) The difference in material and the addition of countless tools, make the Victorinox quite heavier than its counterparts as well. The Swisstool 53946 weighs in at 10 oz which is about 2 oz heavier than most of the heavier end of Leathermans. Also, close the Victorinox measures 4.5 inches which is a half an inch longer than most Leathermans. However, that increase and quality and functionality doesn’t come cheap. The Victorinox usually is priced around the $140 area.

Victorinox Swisstool 53946 User Manual
All SwissTools come with a lifetime warranty. From all the research that I could do online, I have found an overwhelmingly positive response to SwissTools warranty. I have only found one negative review, and I am fairly certain it was user error moreso than a downright manufacturer refusal to repair. Nonetheless there are way more positive warranty experience on the many forums out there, and we all know that 10 negative complaints will appear before 1 positive praise (marketing 101), so I think its safe to say it’s a decent warranty.
Who is the Victorinox Swisstool 53946 for?
The Mr. Fix It. My ol’ man would love this tool because it has more tools than the rest. This multi-tool is for the person who has 4 or 5 different tool boxes or tool chests. Yes, we know you exist. Don’t you dare go into those tool chests without knowing the proper tool alignment/categorization position. If you are that person, then this is the right tool for you. Although, if something breaks and you only have one tool with you, more is always better…. Read Owner Reviews Here⇒
