HWT Christmas Gift Guide

A good pocket knife is always useful and no pocket knife is as useful as the Swiss Army Knife. The Victorinox Swiss Army Swiss Champ Pocket Knife is not the absolute top of the line Swiss Army Knife, but it has everything you are likely to need and at Amazon's price of $49.35 (MSRP of $86.00) it won't break the bank.

From the manufacturers description:

From the renowned company that created the Swiss Army knife a century ago comes this complete set of tools for campers, hikers, hunters, fishers, and working people of all trades--all neatly contained in a single implement that measures just 3-1/2 inches long. Sheathed in the famous Swiss Army red plastic, the Swiss Champ pocket knife is a toolbox small enough to fit into a pocket. (It also comes with a key ring.) A valued companion, this pocket knife contains 32 stainless-steel tools and carries a lifetime warranty against defects. The tools include a large knife blade, small knife blade, can opener, bottle opener, small screwdriver, large screwdriver, fine screwdriver, Phillips screwdriver, mini screwdriver, corkscrew, wire stripper, reamer, sewing eye, punch, tweezers, plastic toothpick, scissors, hook, wood saw, fish scaler, fish hook disgorger, ruler, nail file, nail cleaner, metal file, metal saw, chisel, pliers, wire cutter, magnifying glass, ballpoint pen, and pin.

Like I said, everything you are likely to use (and maybe then some). I know a lot of women who keep one of these in their purse and a lot of men who keep one in the dash of their car or their range bag or tackle box.
