The Rugged Collection


I bought this knife to use as my “everyday” carry because of its size and the versatile tools that come with it. I expected average quality for the price I paid, but when I receive it I was pretty much blown away. This knife is simply awesome. The strength and durability of it remind me of the much larger and more expensive knives, yet this one is lightweight and can easily fit in my pocket. The blade is perfectly sharp, and as others have said the thickness of the blade will allow me to sharpen it for years and years without any problems of running out of material.

I will primarily be using the blade, scissors, bottle opener and occasionally the screwdriver when I’m in a jam or just don’t want to go to my toolbox, so those are the parts that I tried out first. These are not the standard “chintzy” that usually come with swiss army knives of this size. They are as strong as many of the tools in my toolbox, and can definitely handle most jobs when needed. And I always love having a bottle opener handy during Sunday football games!

Overall, I have to give this a 5-star + rating… it’s a great knife and I am actually planning on purchasing a few more as holiday gifts.

This would be a nice utility knife if the scissors worked! The knife blade is sharp an firm in the handle. All the blades are accessible and firm in the knife base. The knife feels good in my smaller hand. The scissors, however are poorly made and very disappointing. Compared to the rest of the knife they are poorly made. The scissor blades do not meet right to cut and therefore twist what you want to cut instead of cutting. The spring on the scissors slips off the arm causing a jam. This knife is so close to meting great but the scissors are disappointing. Unfortunately I use the scissors a lot and they are important to me. The knife is a tool and this tool almost makes it, but … I am disappointed. Back to Victorinox. Update! I was contacted by the Rugged Knife Company after my review. They offered to send me a new knife. I just received the knife with a nice letter. My major problem with the original knife was the scissors, and the scissors on the new knife are perfect. With this change I am changing my evaluation rom 3 to 5 stars. This is a good solid multi use knife. The blade is sharp and the tools are well made. The scissors cut well. The price point of this knife makes it a great value. The letter that came with the replacement knife claims that the company will tighten their quality control. I hope that this is so.
