Whether you need to open a can of soup, get a sliver out, or just write a check…  No matter what your need is, you will find that the Victorinox SwissChamp Pocket Knife by Swiss Army is the perfect fit for you.  To fulfill all your needs while you are hiking, fishing, hunting or just going about your normal day! This knife can handle it.

 The Features

The 3 1/2 inch SwissChamp pocket knife has many accessories to it!   This knife includes two blades, one larger main blade and the smaller blade for jobs that call for a blade that has the ability to handle small details.   Some of the tools on this knife have multiple functions.  A few of the other tools included are a corkscrew, a screwdriver, a wire stripper, a key ring, tweezers, scissors, a toothpick, a pen and many more!

Pros and Cons

The great thing about this knife obviously is that it has everything you could ever possibly need concerning everyday tools. It has everything.  When it comes down to it, all these extra tools are great but the real question is what is the quality of the blades.  Victorinox started up in the later 1800’s when sturdy compact knives were needed for soldiers in the Swiss Army.  Ever since then they have been delivering quality knives to meet customer demands.   What all this means is these blades have been proven to be sharp and durable. The cutting edge on both the large and small knives arrives sharp and ready for action…whether you are whittling for enjoyment or shaving tinder for the fire on your survival outing.  The knife opening method is by fingernail, and the blade material itself is 440A stainless steel, which is a common steel used for pocket knives.

A few more fantastic aspects of this knife are the fact that it can make your work more efficient. Everything is right there in your pocket. This knife is also known for its durability.  With proper care and cleaning it can last as long as you do.  The hinges are known to stay tight and keep the smooth open/close motion that you would expect from a brand new knife.

Now for the cons, because this knife has many purposes, I have found that it can feel a little big and bulky in your hands or in your pocket.  This problem tends to depend on the person.  There are some people who love the big knife that all their buddies are asking about while there are those who just like something a little smaller like the Victorinox Swiss Army Huntsman Pocket Knife,  that weighs 4.0 oz compared to the SwissChamp’s 6.1 oz. Another problem that you might face with this knife is cost.  It has so many accessories that, as you can imagine, it is not the cheapest multi-tool, but at the same time you are getting loads of implements.


This multi-tool can be useful and fit a wide variety of people.  It is great for a work setting where there is a demand for a lot of durable tools that can be maneuvered in small spaces easily.   It also can be used by your everyday outdoor enthusiast.  It has two blades that are dependably sharp, perfect for skinning small game, filleting fish or fending off wild beasts.   On top of these two common uses, it could also be used at home for around the house repairs.  The uses. Are. Limitless.

The Details

  • Dimensions: 3.6 inches by 1.1 inches, by 1.3 inches
  • Weight: 6.6 ounces
  • Blade Length: 2.6 inches

On this knife alone I have seen hundreds of reviews from happy buyers who were thrilled with the quality and performance of the SwissChamp that they purchased.  I personally believe that the pros outweigh the cons on this one.  The 25+ tools that this knife holds are a great way to satisfy the demands of any multi-tool lover.  With the great name of Swiss Army to back it up, this knife is totally worth buying.

  1. I’m interested if you ever use outside resources for photography of knives for your website, etc.

    I have some examples of knife photography online at if you are interested.

    Thank you for your time!


  2. I am an alpine plant biologist. I have it always with me in the mountains. And I have a spare one at home, in case I loose one.
    It is super useful and from high quality. Even the magnifier glass is good enough for the professional purpose of a botanist.
