NSFW: Victorinox Factory Tour

It’s not that kind of NSFW. I said ‘Victorinox’ and not ‘Victoria’s Secret’ so get your minds out of the gutter, you swine. What I meant to say was that this full-length documentary runs almost 45 minutes and it’s pretty darned interesting, and if your boss catches you wasting that much time on YouTube he’s going to send you down to HR for a little intervention.

So get off your office computer and make the jump for The Full Mountaineer…

And don’t blame me if you get fired. BYW, how many SAKs do you own? I’ve got three, and two of them have actually been to Switzerland with me.

  1. Thanks Chris. Video book-marked for later watching at lunch time. I currently own two SAKs. One is a standard 1970s model Victorinox and the other is by Wenger the Evogrip 16. I’ve read some Internet rumors that since Victorinox has officially bought Wenger, it (Wenger) will be folded-up into Victorinox.

  2. Everybody should have an SAK. People say that the multi tools have made the SAK obsolete. I’ve worked building maintanence for a lot of years. 90% of the jobs that can be handled by a multi tool or SAK require a screw driver, primarily. By the time you burden yourself with radios and flashlights and job boards the difference between the pocket portability of a SAK opposed to the holster carry of a multitool is quite a bit. Throw in the ginormous ring of keys and computer access cards that this job entails and it becomes a big thing to leave that multi tool behind.

    For the jobs that are too big for the SAK you’ll likely need more than just a multitool anyway. I’ve found, at least in my experience, that the best place for a multitool is your range box and your tackle box. The best place for an SAK is your pocket.
