Victorinox Hunter Pro

Having a fancy folding knife doesn't mean much if you're fumbling to get it open when it counts. Especially when you're working with your hands in the outdoors, wearing gloves to fight off the cold. This is exactly the type of environment the Victorinox Hunter was designed to thrive in. With a large blade, easy-opening thumb hole, and ergonomic handles, its simple efficiency gets the job done.

Its 4” blade comes in a high carbon stainless steel making it ideal for rough conditions, not to mention being easy to re-sharpen. Thanks to the extra-large thumb opening, one-handed deployment of the blade is easy whether or not you're wearing gloves. It stays in place during use thanks to a lockback sytem built into the Hunter's contoured handles, shaped to help you get a better handle on the larger knife. An included nylon belt pouch even lets you carry the Hunter as part of your EDC or strapped to your outdoor pack.

In the great outdoors, simplicity spells efficiency. Grab the walnut wood version at the Amazon link below, or check it out in black or hi-vis orange with textured polyamide scales.

Victorinox EvoGrip 16 Swiss Army Knife

Even if you're new to the world of pocket knives, you'd probably recognize the iconic red handles of a Swiss Army Knife anywhere. As easy as they are to spot, those glossy handles aren't so easy to handle, especially during heavy-duty tasks. That's why the biggest names in Swiss Army knives, Victorinox and Wenger, joined forces to produce the Delemont collection of tools featuring contoured scales. The result? An “evolved” form of the original Swiss Army Knife with more grip than ever.

Ergonomic curves on the Victorinox EvoGrip 16 give your fingers a definitive place to grip onto, adding leverage where you need it and preventing slippage during use. For even more control, especially in wet conditions, the curves are fitted with texturized rubber inlays.

Of all the different Swiss Army Knife configurations to choose from, the EvoGrip 16's toolset is one of the best suited for EDC too. It hits the right balance of having the useful tools you'd need, without the bulk of tools you'd only occasionally use. Most notably, it features a sturdy 3D Philips screwdriver along with 9 other tools that carry out a total of 14 functions — perfect for tackling a variety of everyday tasks.

You can grab one of these Swiss-made tools (with a frim grip, too) for your everyday carry via the link below.

What's Better for EDC? Plain vs Serrated vs Combo Knives

When choosing the best pocket knife for your everyday carry, one of the decisions you'll need to make is what type of blade edge you should choose.

The common recommendation is to go with a plain edge (for reasons we'll get into later), but you might notice two other types of edges: serrated and combo edges. Instead of an unbroken edge on the blade, these two alternatives add some “teeth” to the knife.

You may not have needed serrations on your knife before, or don't know enough about them to add them to your kit. In our last guide for custom-designed knives for everyday carry, one reader asked: “Why don't you guys ever feature serrated knives?”

Well today we will, and our goal is to compare each type of edge in the context of EDC tasks so you can make the right choice when picking one.

Victorinox Minichamp Alox

15 functions, 1.41 ounces, 1 legendary brand. Keychain multitools don't get much more functional than this. While Victorinox's Minichamp in the classic red scales has been around for a while, it's when it's paired with lightweight, rugged aluminum oxide that it (literally) begins to shine.

For its footprint, the Minichamp packs an impressive array of tools. From a general-purpose knife to a unique orange peeler, there's no everyday task that it can't help with in some way. It's got scrapers and pushers, strippers and bottle openers. You can do some work on your nails, or get real work done with its rulers and drivers. Surgical-sharp scissors are of course a favorite from Victorinox's multitools, and the Minichamp also works great for everyday carry thanks to an attached key ring.

There's no better tool to keep on you at all times. Keep your carry light but get the job done with the Minichamp Alox, which you can pick up from Amazon at the link below.

Interview: Carl Elsener, Global CEO of Victorinox

Interview

Carl Elsener, the global CEO of Victorinox, flew in from Switzerland to kick off the store's grand opening. I took this rare opportunity to scope the new location and talk SAKs with Mr. Elsener himself.

In this quick interview below, Mr. Elsener shares what's in his pockets, what model of SAK he swears by, and two incredible stories he's heard over the years of a SAK coming to the rescue. It's been lightly edited for clarity and length.
