The Drop: Victorinox Venture Fixed Blade Knife

Avatar photo

It’s a big EDC market out there, and tons of awesome gear is released all the time. We made The Drop to help you discover the latest and greatest essentials worth a spot in your EDC.

When you think of Victorinox, you probably have their trusty Swiss Army Knives (SAKs) in mind. But they also make a line of adventure fixed blades, and their newest knife is called the Venture. It’s a multi-purpose fixed-blade EDC knife built for the great outdoors and all points in between. It features a 4.75” Sandvik 14C28N steel blade and durable full-tang construction.

Unlike a folding (usually non-locking) SAK, the Venture features an always-ready fixed blade design with a sheath for safe carry convenience. On the Pro version specifically, that sheath integrates a ballpoint pen, a pair of tweezers, and a fire starter, making it highly versatile both on and off the field. Its non-slip polymer handle also conceals a bow-drill pivot, making it easy to use to help start a fire, especially in conjunction with the firestarter it comes with.

What we like: The Venture‘s durable and reliable fixed-blade construction and the convenient EDC and survival tools built into the Pro’s sheath make it an excellent choice for all-around everyday carry use.

What to watch out for: If you’re not a fan of the extra tools built into the sheath, you can opt for the regular Venture version of this reliable fixed blade, which removes them for added weight savings and simplicity.

Final verdict: If you’re in the market for a quality everyday carry fixed-blade knife with added survival and adventure utility, the Victorinox Venture is a solid choice from one of our favorite tool brands.
