Perfect combination of tools that you will actually use!

I thought long and hard before I bought this swiss army knife. There are models such as the Mini Champ which have more tools but as a result are thicker. So I thought long and hard about which tools I would ACTUALLY use and this was the result.
It has an incredibly sharp blade which comes in handy for opening letters and parcels, cutting tags off clothes, etc. Don't let its small size fool you. And of course it's made from beautiful quality stainless steel which holds it edge well, is easy to sharpen, and rust proof. The scissors, although small, work very well too. There is also a good quality nail file which I find myself using more than expected. The tip of this doubles up as a flat bladed screwdriver. But one of the most impressive tools is the bottle opener/wire stripper/phillips screwdriver. This is made of thicker steel than the other tools and is therefore incredibly strong for its size. The screwdriver bit is magnetic and fits a wide range of phillips screws including the tiny ones used in spectacles! I haven't used the wire stripper yet so can't really comment but I'm sure it will do a fine job. The bottle opener of course is always a handy thing to have on your person.
As if this wasn't enough, there are two extra surprises. A pair of tweezers which store away neatly in the handle, or you can swap them out for a toothpick if you prefer. And finally, the pièce de résistance of this knife is an incredibly useful pen which pops out when you slide a little lever. I was a bit sceptical of this at first thinking it would be impossible to obtain refills. However it would appear I'm wrong as they seem widely available from a number of sources at relatively little cost. I find myself using the pen all the time and people are always impressed when they see it in action. One tip to make it easier to write with the pen is to open out the bottle opener/wire stripper/screwdriver tool as this makes it much easier to hold in your hand.
So yes, as you can tell I love my little swiss army knife. And you will too!
