It's a tool made by a company that almost needs no introduction — a multi-tool manufacturer since 1897. Victorinox bundled 29 applications into the Swiss Tool BS. The tools in the handles lock in place and are released by pulling back on the textured buttons just behind the pivots. It includes a chisel, a hard and soft wire cutter, and five different sizes and shapes of screwdrivers.

– It's a Swiss Army Knife on steroids — large number of tools, no gimmicks
– Unlike some other designs, you can access the tools even when the pliers are closed.
– The handle comfortably fills the hand.

– Would have been nice to have a pocket clip
– No spring on the pliers
– Heaviest tool in this lineup
