This version of the Victorinox SwissTool X comes with a solid plastic belt sheath. Because of an ingenious spring-loaded system the tool stays nicely in place, even when you go for a run. Yes, we tested this. The great thing about this sheath is also that you can add the tool when it is opened. As such you can always quickly use the pliers when you are standing on a ladder, for instance, and are holding something with your other hand.

Most important tools
You open the pliers by opening the handles. The beak has been enhanced with small serrations that offer you additional grip. The tip is relatively small for precise tasks, such as bending fish hooks. The spine of the beak is curved to make sure you can easily move around in tight corners and bend a wire with ease. The pliers has been enhanced with a wire cutter and wire stripper. The wire cutter is also great for cutting small sticks and stems. Good pliers come in handy more often than you might think.
The large droppoint knife is razor-sharp and has a cutting edge of no less than 7 cm. Once opened the knife will immediately be locked. As such the tool can never close when you don't want it to, also making it perfect for heavy-duty tasks. When opening and closing the blade you hear a familiar click. The knife is very solid and perfect for outdoor and survival purposes.
The solid teeth cover approximately 7 cm of the saw blade. Branches the size of a wrist are therefore easy to get through. The saw is thin. The spine is approximately 1 mm thick and the teeth 1.3 mm thick. Because the spine is smaller than the teeth the saw won't get stuck in the wood and it limits friction. In addition to living wood this saw can handle pallets and shelves. When gardening and working around the house the Spirit is a true life-saver!
The file has three sides you can use. One side that functions as a metal file, a rougher side for softer metals and a side that functions as a metal saw. This is the narrow base of the file and it is perfect when sawing screws or nails in half.
