I don't own a Swiss army knife but both my husband and son do, genuine Victorinox ones. My son's was a Christening present and is hidden away somewhere until he's abit older. My husband swears by his and uses it all the time.
We've given a couple as presents too, as they can be really useful.
I have two Swiss Army Knives.
The first one I received as a gift from relatives in Switzerland and the second one I received as a production gift from my producer when I worked on the show Australians at War. The name of the television series was inscribed on the side of the casing. I've often used it as it's stored in a first aid box which we take with us on picnics or long drives. It's an extremely handy piece of Swiss engineering.
No, but I have a purely penknife put out by 'Coca-Cola', several years' ago, in its' own case. I use it as a letter opener! It means a lot to me as I've drunk 'Coke' since a kid & still love it for its' cold, refreshing flavour!
I happened to flick the TV channel over to this documentary about how Swiss Army Knives are designed and created. I was enthralled. I knew they came at a huge cost but watching all the processes it takes to create it, it's understandable. Even children knives remarkably they showed no matter what they might do with it in miss use they wouldn't ever be cut.just the polishing if the steel is quite remarkable. If you wanted any tool or dreamt of finding one, seriously they've got it. Don't worry to lug a tool box b.c they have designed a "set" of tools that a trade would be besotted with and save his or her shoulders from lugging this equipment around.
Even how they apply the red and white logo is fascinating too.
The doco was outstanding in learning about this famous product. I'm so lucky to have watched with baited breath. True. Try and find it if you can. Awesome!
Yes, I own a genuine Swiss army knife. I was a Cub Leader and Girl Guide Leader and found it invaluable. It's stored somewhere safe in the house but as I have a habit of placing things in safe places, I often don't find them until years later when I'm looking for something else.
Oh! helga, lol!
Wish I were more acquainted with the 'safe places', I've stored items, which cannot be found when I need them!
Have resolved to write in Diary, from now on, as I've misplaced a valuable item, which I know is in a 'safe place' in the house, but where?????
