The holidays may have passed, but you’re not in the clear yet. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and if you have no idea what else your significant other could possibly want, consider something a little more practical than a box of chocolates (though that’s never a bad idea). The Swiss Army Knife is about as classic a tool as it gets and Victorinox now has multiple offerings, making it easier than ever to stay prepared without weighing down your pockets.

Whether that important man or woman in your life needs a discreet tool for the office or something a little more robust for your weekend adventures together, the timeless SAK has you covered. We picked a few of their more versatile options that should bring a smile to any EDCer from the rugged outdoorsperson to the modern gent, and everyone in between.

SwissChamp SilverTech

If priority number one is functionality, then go for the SwissChamp SilverTech. This robust SAK adds a medium pocket knife to your carry along with 31 other tools, putting everything from a toothpick to a metal saw in something that easily fits in your pocket. At only 6.5 ounces the Swisschamp stuffs everything you’d need for a weekend camping in a body that won’t look out of place at the office, either. Especially if you opt for the SilverTech scales which adds a touch of modern style to an otherwise rugged tool.


SwissCard Lite

If pocket space is limited then you can’t go wrong with the SwissCard Lite. Victorinox took some of their most used tools and put them in an award-winning design that fits in your wallet right next to your cards and cash. As long as you have your wallet on you you’ll have screwdrivers, tweezers, a pen, and it even has a small LED for lighting places that your phone or flashlight might be too big to get to. Although its design makes it the perfect backup tool, the feature-packed Swisscard Lite has enough going for it that even if it’s the only tool you carry you should be able to handle most everyday tasks.


MiniChamp Alox

When discretion is key, a smaller tool like the MiniChamp Alox might be the perfect gift. At only 2.3-inches it’s not hard to see how the Minichamp gets its name. Which makes it all the more impressive that Victorinox was able to stuff in the equivalent of a utility belt. You’ll get a total of 15 tools including scissors, a small blade, an orange peeler, bottle opener, and Phillips screwdriver just to name a few. The Minichamp Alox might not be the ideal choice for the outdoor enthusiast, but for anyone who works in an office it’s a great way to tackle everyday tasks. Not to mention it only weighs 1.4 ounces so simply adding it to a keychain just in case tool isn’t a bad idea either.


Spartan PS

If you want something simple that nails the basics, go with the Spartan PS. It’s all-black Polispectral coating adds a unique twist to the durable multi-tool, making it appear different shades of gray depending on the lighting. But besides the new blacked-out color option you’ll still get all of the tools that made the original Spartan great. A handy 2.4-inch large blade is perfect for food prep while a second smaller blade can handle box-opening duties. Throw in a bottle opener and corkscrew and this might be the gift that keeps on giving.


SwissTool Spirit

If you know they tinker with bigger projects and depend on a good set of pliers, Victorinox has you covered there too with the SwissTool Spirit. Where most traditional multi-tools have a rugged aesthetic to them, the Swisstool opts for a more minimal design. While this 7.4 ounce stainless steel might look simple, it’s packed with 27 durable tools meant to get the job done ranging from scissors to metal saws. A sturdy locking systems prevents any mishaps while the tool is in use. If you’re looking for a solid multi-tool for EDC the Swisstool should be on your shortlist.


Cadet Alox

We all aim to streamline our EDC so that we only have to carry the essentials, and that’s exactly what Victorinox did with the Cadet Alox. By removing some less frequently used tools and improving the scales, they were able to make the Cadet more compact and sturdier than ever. Along with the usual suspects like screwdriver and can opener, you’ll also get a 2-inch blade and a wire stripper making this tool equal parts gent’s knife and sleek multi-tool.
